We have also a new room we call 'The Quarterdeck'. It's on the lower level of the house, with fabulous views, private deck with BBQ, cable TV & Wifi. It also has private entrance and bath, microwave and fridge. There's an active artist's group on the island, and lovely shops to find local treasures. We have two restaurants on the island, a pub at the local hotel, and a Legion with great food and lots of activities. You can be as active as you like on the island. There are great hiking trails, a Saturday Trekkers group hike you can join in with, or drop in Yoga or Tai Chi classes. We have beautiful tennis courts and great bird-watching. You might see our local black tail deer on or near the property! Rosebank Cottage is a great place to vacation - for all ages. Relax - Renew - Rejuvenate!More

Nothing but wildlife and the sound of the ocean. Very peaceful and a fantastic place to stay if you are looking to get away from the big city. Highly recommended. We have been here 2 years in a row.
