Handcrafted living alongside earth, sea & sky
Envision your intimate retreat, workshop, wedding, family gathering or educational conference coming to life in a spectacularly beautiful eco-village haven. Whether you are a community of artists, gardeners, permaculture practitioners, writers, meditators, birders, mycologists, kayakers, mountain bikers, extended family, or a couple imagining an elegant and earthy wedding, Channel Rock offers an exceptional setting for your experience.
Our guests savor the deeply connected, satisfying feeling of living sustainably and close to nature. Hike the trails around Channel Rock and find a wilderness of giant trees growing from a moss- and fern-carpeted forest floor. Hop in a kayak to experience the clear green and blue waters and tiny islands dotting the shore of our 140 acres of breathtaking coastal conservancy. Sea lions, Orca, dolphins, eagles and a myriad of aquatic birds are common to our waters.
Entirely off-the-grid and featuring solar energy and wood stoves, Channel Rock’s communal cob house, sauna and other hand-hewn structures encircle a 100-year heritage orchard and permaculture garden. Guests sleep peacefully in cabins, yurts, tents and tipis alongside the bright stars and deep quiet of Cortes Island.
The abundant organic garden provides superb, fresh ingredients for the sumptuous meals created by our talented chef or for guests’ own culinary creations. Locally procured salmon and seafood, and perhaps even your own harvest of prawns, add to the colorful, nutritious yumminess served at Channel Rock.
Our guests tell us time and again that a visit to Channel Rock is a life-changing experience. We invite you to step onto our beautiful forest-and-seaside footpath and let the journey begin.
