Cozy country cottage in historic Fort Langley

Our cozy laneway cottage overlooks pasture and a tiered garden in a quiet, peaceful setting. It is fully furnished with internet, basic TV cable, and off-street parking for one car. We are a fifteen minute walk to great restaurants, lively cafes, hiking and bike trails, boutique shops, historical sites. There are several golf courses and wineries nearby. We are half a block to a bus stop with transfer service to Burnaby and Vancouver. By car, it's thirty minute drive to Simon Fraser University, twenty minutes to University of Fraser Valley, and ten minutes to Trinity Western University. UBC is a fifty minute drive.

Our home was built in the 1920’s when the community was rural and the surrounding property was a working dairy farm. The 600 sq ft cottage was built in the 1950’s and served as staff housing. It retains a quaint character but has been updated to offer modern amenities. Throughout the cottage are whimsical pieces hand-painted by an artist neighbour.

Our cottage is suitable for one or two people. The bed is a comfortable double-width, extra-long mattress with comforter, pillows, and a warm wool throw for those who like extra blankets. There is a closet with hangers and a chest of drawers. The bathroom is an ensuite. It has both a shower and a tub – nice for long soaks. Courtesy supplies of soap, body wash, and shampoo are provided to help you settle in. A hair dryer is available on request.

The cottage is equipped with a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board. The kitchen area is compact but well appointed with a gas oven and stove, full size frig and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee perker, kettle, toaster, slow-cooker, pots and pans, serving dishes, cutlery, mugs, and wine glasses. On the back porch are a bistro table, two chairs, and a bbq.

The cottage has high speed internet. A hand-crafted oak desk with ample drawer space is available as a work station. The living room features a 49” TV with service to the major news networks and a variety of entertainment channels.

About Me
I am a full professor at Simon Fraser University working in the areas of basic and applied neuroscience. My wife, daughter and I live in the main house with our friendly Siamese cat. We own horses that live on the acreage just behind the cottage. We enjoy international traveling, and the active lifestyle our setting provides. Fort Langley is a unique community in the Vancouver area, combining old-style rural with upscale urban living while remaining accessible to the rest of the Lower Mainland.
