Ravenwood Cottage

Parksville 3 Bedroom Vacation Home

Front of cottage
Front of cottage

Ravenwood Cottage offers guests a very comfortable, clean and cozy home away from home, regardless of the season. This family-friendly property offers children and children at heart plenty of space for outdoor games like badminton or Frisbee and is a wonderful space to come back to after day trips to local beaches, golf courses, ski hills, and hikes.

The Ravenwood Cottage offers a large fully equipped, modern kitchen. The sundeck can be used for serving afternoon tea or a summer evening meal. The deck overlooks the back yard meadow, making it a good spot for keeping an eye on the kids. For winter visits, the centre of attention in the living room is an efficient wood burning stove, which invites you to put your feet up and read, or take a warm relaxing rest after dinner. The three bedrooms comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Nights are very quiet, allowing for restful undisturbed sleep. The sparkling, tidy bathroom features both a bath tub and shower.

Ravenwood Cottage is situated within the Parksville city limits yet retains a rural feel. Parksville's downtown shopping district is 5 minutes away by car, where you will find all the necessities for your stay, and more. Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is also a short 5 minutes drive away. In summer it is a favourite swimming beach and a perfect place for quiet walks, sunset picnics and views across Georgia Strait. Top Bridge Regional Park, on the Englishman River, can be reached by foot in about 20-25 minutes and is a favourite for local fresh water swimming. The river can be reached by a 3 minute walk for Fall salmon watching. The quaint town of Qualicum Beach is 15-20 minutes drive north on the Old Island Highway. And several provincial parks are reachable in under 30 minutes, including Little Qualicum Falls, Englishman River Falls, MacMillan and Spider Lake. In winter, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, about 1 hour drive north on the Inland Island Highway near Courtenay offers Vancouver Island's best skiing experience. Ravenwood Cottage is just 30 minutes drive north of the Departure Bay Terminal in Nanaimo, the shortest ferry trip from and to Vancouver.

So whether you like to climb mountains, want to show the kids some special swimming spots during the summer, if you are a snowbird looking for a place to call home during the winter, or just want a quiet yet convenient retreat on Vancouver Island, Ravenwood Cottage can accommodate and will make your stay very enjoyable.

The booking process was very easy and the way EMR has there system set up is awesome. With reminder emails and knowledgeable staff. Our greeter was very friendly and was quick to answer any questions we had. The app they supply is very nice but I found that it didn't have all of the tabs filled in with info. Would have been nice to have that app working at its full potential.
Anyways the rental itself was good. It was clean and offered everything you could need. My kids slept like a rock on the twin sized beds but my husband slept awful on the bed. Maybe a mattress upgrade is needed in they future. But all in all it's an affordable rental super close to parksville and rathtrevor beach sp. I will be considering this location as a rental next year

EMR Response

Thank you for your terrific review. We will pass on your comments to the property owner with regard to the mattress. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.

Ravenwood Cottage is a lovely place for a holiday. Three bedrooms, plenty of yard space, a deck with a barbeque, laundry on site, deer and ravens--just wonderful! With its proximity to Rathtrevor beach, Cathedral Grove, the ferry terminal, Coombs, and many other lovely places, the cottage is an affordable option to camping.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was immaculate and well equipped,the greeter was very helpful and professional, and the yard was beautiful. We liked the location private, quiet- the only reason we didn't give it a 5 was because it wasn't an easy walk to the beach areas however, this was minor compared to everything else about the house. We also appreciate the extra effort that the EMR staff went to when we were first making the booking.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind review.

The house was perfect for us and our little children. The home was very clean with a huge backyard backing onto a fabulous forest. The home had all the basics with no extra clutter for the kids to get into. It was relaxing and private.
The location is great very close to beaches in the area. The house served as a great home base.
Check in and out was very easy and friendly with no issue or problems.
The internet was super fast.

Parksville is a beautiful place with many great things to see and do such as swimming in the river at top bridge, frolicking in the ocean, huge Douglas Firs at Cedar Grove, short drive to Tofino. I have been coming to Vancouver Island for the past 5 years for my summer vacation. Staying at Ravenwood Cottage was my best experience ever. Previously stayed in hotels but now much prefer vacation home rentals with a kitchen, barbeque, washer and dryer, etc. My grandchildren were with me and the large yard gave them plenty of room to play. We also purchased fresh oysters from Fanny Bay and barbequed them. Soooooo good. I recommend these oysters to anyone who likes oysters. My understanding is Fanny Bay oysters are known world round. I would definitely recommend Ravenwood cottage to friends and relatives and if I plan my next summer vacation on Vancouver Island, I would request Ravenwood Cottage again. It was clean and well maintained. And if you like privacy, this is the place to stay.

We had a great stay at the Ravenwood cottage. It had everything and more that we needed. We saw deer hanging out in the front yard or back yard almost everyday. I was able to make my sisters wedding cake in the kitchen. I thought the beds where comfortable. I appreciated that there were screens on the windows to allow fresh air flow in the cottage. The cottage is tucked away on a fairly quiet street yet just a short drive to the city centre.

EMR Response

Thank you for your review of Ravenwood Cottage. It sounds like this property was ideal for your family? We are happy that the kitchen provided adequate space to make your sisters wedding cake! That's fantastic and what a treat for her. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.

The property description was accurate, the property was very well maintained and clean, the manager was helpful and I would recommend this property to anyone. Everything worked very well. The bathroom, the kitchen, the washer/dryer and the bbq. Even the wifi was excellent. It was spacious and the yard was beautiful. We felt very lucky that we found this property and would book it in the future when we go back to Parksville. We enjoyed our stay on the island. We went to the beach, Cathedral Grove, did whale watching, went to Coombs and drove around and did sightseeing. We will have great memories of this place for years to come. Loved it.

EMR Response

Thank you for your terrific review of Ravenwood Cottage. It sounds like you had a great time. This part of Vancouver Island is certainly magical with so many amazing places such as Cathedral Grove - and Coombs. We look forward to having you join us again in the future.

A cottage wonderfully re-modeled completely including heated bathroom flooring, huge kitchen with lots of cupboard space, a dishwasher and laundry facilities, and a large cozy living room with a fireplace made our stay at Ravenwood GREAT!

It's a great place for a family to stay. With all the amenities, parks, beach, natural parks etc. around the area it's just the right place for us to stay. I would surely recommend this place to our friends. We surely be there again next year.

Awful location, out in the middle of nowhere. House way too close to the road. Uncomfortable beds. Apple TV was outdated and never worked. Unable to watch TV during entire stay. EMR Vacations and owner stopped replying to my emails when I asked for compensation. Just took my money and ran. Not at all worth the 225 per night.

EMR Response

We are sorry to read you did not enjoy your stay at the property. To be clear this property is not advertised directly in Parksville. Map locations are clearly on the listing. Again, wished this guest could have enjoyed the property as much as other guests have. The property is clean and compact 3 bedroom house. The rate is well below resort and other property rates in the city because of the location.
