We are located in Port Renfrew, B.C. Canada, on Vancouver Island’s wild west coast. The Homestead Cabins — soon to be "Remote Renfew Retreat" —  is nestled between both arms of the San Juan River amidst wild fern & moss laden trees.

Launch your wilderness adventure from Canada’s tall tree Capital — complete with beaches, changing tides, rain forests, remote stunning shorelines, surf, wildlife, and storm watching.

From the comfort of our riverside cabins, roam the wild coast. Visit nearby Avatar Grove, Botanical and Sombrio Beaches along the Juan De Fuca Trail, and Fairy Lake. 

Our tranquil 7 acres is home to the local herd of Roosevelt Elk, which frequently stop by for a visit.  If you love Humming Birds, you’ll be speechless when you see the non stop feeding frenzy at the feeders which begins in March through to September. 

We're only a 5 minute drive to the beach and the core of Port Renfrew, where you'll find our General Store and a small selection of restaurants, as well as our local pub.
