Cool in Warm Weather: Even on warm days and nights, this is a cool, comfortable space, with screened windows that let in the breezes off the nearby ocean.
Cozy in Chilly Weather: In the chilly months, this suite is kept super cozy throughout with high-efficiency hot-water radiant in-floor heating. The bedroom and bathroom both have their own separate zone/thermostats so that you can finetune the temperatures throughout for your comfort. Come in from storm watching, hiking or dinner out to enjoy the toe-wiggling warmth of radiant heat.
About the Design of the House: Our family has been intimately involved in every detail of the construction of the home you see today—from concept to final finishing. We put a lot of care into choosing the land, the design, exact position and placement of our house. We used the principles of “The Pattern Language” by architect and design theorist Christopher Alexander as our guide. These patterns empower anyone, or any group of people, to create beautiful, functional, meaningful, inviting spaces. To share just a few of Alexander’s patterns, windows should have low sills with comfy chairs nearby to pull up for watching the outside world go by, roofs and ceilings should feel sheltering, and there should be an emphasis on communal gathering within, but with private restful corners to nestle into. We’ve tried to bring his human-scale, livable patterns into this home, with generous windows and sills, inviting book nooks, comfy chairs of all types and sizes, open staircases, covered porches, gradually thickening walls, and seating in the bedrooms for quiet retreat. Our wish is that this house shelter our family for generations, while offering a quiet, cozy and uncomplicated break from the world to all those souls who step through its doorways.
Please Note: Our "Cozy" is the 1 BRM version of our 2 BRM "Bright Private Suite at Daniel Point." The second bedroom is closed and vacant in this configuration.

We built our home here in Pender Harbour to have nature at our doorstep and be close to forest hiking, pristine lakes and the seaside. To live as sustainably as we can, we drive electric and leverage technology as much as possible as we scratch out vegetables, herbs and an orchard from our rocky soil, irrigated by rainwater harvested from our metal roof. We grow quite a bit of our own food. The rest comes from local merchants and the fishing community here whenever possible. Carol (with support from Cliff) works on developing books (20 so far) in our home office-library on how to grow food, support bees, eat weeds and live a little more sustainably. We have three adult children in university.
Very importantly, we want any space we share to be one that we love ourselves, so we’ve put lots of TLC into our guest suite. Cliff has built the bathroom and kitchen cabinets from scratch, along with the living room furniture and tables in the Pine Bedroom, with fir and maple harvested, milled and aged on this property. And we have upcycled wherever we can, and worked throughout the suite with natural materials like cotton, jute and sisal. We hope you enjoy your stay here!
