Channel the pursuit of pause in this one-of-a-kind earth house. The cozy retreat was hand-sculpted using local and sustainable natural materials, and features a central living space with cantilevered slab stairs leading to the loft bedroom.
“We had an incredible stay at Alexis and Manny's cob cottage. Their property is private and quiet, and the unique cottage is like something out of a fairy tale. Small but spacious, it had everything we needed. There were plenty of dishes and pots in the kitchen, which we used to cook a number of our meals. We were lucky to be able to use the outdoor pizza oven outside as well before the fire ban kicked in. The shower was quite large, and we appreciated the high ceilings everywhere (even upstairs where the bed was). The bed was very comfortable. Alexis provided us with some great recommendations of where to go and where to eat on the island. It was a magical, relaxing getaway and we hope to return one day! If you are ever planning a trip to the Southern Gulf Islands, this Airbnb is a must.”
NOTE: POINT ROBERTS AND THE COTTAGES AT LILY POINT MAY BE THE SAFEST PLACE IN THE US RIGHT NOW. YOU ARE ALLOWED AS US CITIZENS TO PROCEED THROUGH THE CANADIAN BORDER TO POINT ROBERTS IF YOU HAVE DUAL RESIDENCE (US and CDN) OR ARE STAYING FOR AT LEAST A MONTH. BECAUSE OF THE BORDERS WE ARE MORE ISOLATED THAN EVEN THE ISLANDS. WE ARE A SMALL COMMUNITY BUT OUR SUPERMARKET IS WELL STOCKED AS IT TYPICALLY CATERS TO CANADIAN RESIDENTS WHO ARE NO LONGER COMING TO POINT ROBERTS.
“If you want a place to unwind and enjoy beauty, nature, and a spiritually renewing space, you will do well to stay here. My husband and I had planned to go up into Canada for some adventures, but we only left a few times because it was exactly where we wanted to be. When I hiked down to the beach, I only saw one other group the whole time. Solitude, peace, birds, and gorgeous panoramic views. One more thing. We are picky about having a comfortable bed, and both of us slept very well up in the cozy loft. Teri”

“The apartment is really nice, quiet and clean and also pet friendly! There's a beautiful view of the ocean from the window and from the private hot tub downstairs. Really amazing! Alan and Gillian were very respectful of our privacy but very prompt to respond to our questions in case we needed anything. The location is really nice and peaceful, yet very strategic with a few minutes drive from major routes and the highway. Would definitely come back!”
