The Old Bakery Cottage

Where the locals are more colourful than the birds

The Old Bakery Cottage is a private, off-the-grid guest house located on the tranquil shores of Lasqueti Island, British Columbia. Make your way here to unplug, unwind, and bask in the simplicity of "island life".

Our small island has had some big coverage...just check out this video from Global's 16x9 (and keep your eye out for the Old Bakery Cottage!)

Imagine an island so secluded there's no electricity, there are no paved roads and in many cases, no plumbing. That island - called Lasqueti - is home to 400 people and less than an hour away from Vancouver. 16x9 traveled there to see what it's like to live off the grid.
