Guest Access:

Come and go as you please, as this cottage is separate from the surrounding dwellings. Keyless entry makes after hours check-in/out a breeze and the best part is no extra fees! Park easily on the street for free!

You will be provided your own personal entry code before check-in.
For entry: Enter code (see green light), pull door toward you, turn knob to the left.
For exit: Press 'EMTEK', pull door toward you, turn knob to the right.

Interaction with Guests:

We respect that each guest is unique and has different needs. We will make every effort to welcome you when possible, and make local recommendations. The beauty of Rose Cottage is that it is a separate dwelling with digital key pad, allowing for a maximum of privacy.

The Neighbourhood:

Step out your front door, cross the lane and enjoy everything John Hendry park has to offer. This includes a large lake with beautiful walking/cycling trails, sandy beach with gorgeous mountain views, rec center, two kids playgrounds, market and concession in summer, and plenty more to discover.

A short walk in the park takes you to the new, state-of-the-art Trout Lake Recreation Center, featuring Olympic skating rink, fitness center, tennis and basketball courts, outstanding children's playground, a cafe, and more! Detailed information is available by using your favorite search engine: type 'city of vancouver trout lake'

The Vancouver Farmers Market operates Saturdays from 9am-2pm literally steps from your door, May through October. Exact dates and vendor information is available by using your favorite search engine: type 'eatlocal'

A parking pass is required to park in the neighbourhood during market hours.

Getting around:

Take a pleasant stroll to vibrant Commercial Drive, once known as 'Little Italy'. Voted one of the top 10 hippest hoods in North America, it is one of the most culturally diverse and eclectic spots to visit in Vancouver. Find a plethora of authentic Italian coffee bars, fine dining restaurants, European delis, unique boutiques, and organic food stores. This is a hub for Vancouver's live music and theater scenes, art exhibitions, poetry readings, cafe culture, environmental activism, and alternative lifestyle. Find more info by using your favorite search engine: type 'commercial drive business society'

A short walk takes you to the intersection of Commercial Drive & East Broadway offering two Sky Train stations and many major bus routes. This is very fortunate, as the Sky Train provides fast and inexpensive transport to and from downtown, the airport, North Vancouver and much more. The #99 B-Line bus also stops here and is a quick and direct line to UBC.

A handy route planner can be found at the translink website.

Other Things to Note:

For the FASTEST and most serene walking/cycling ROUTE TO COMMERCIAL DRIVE: May we suggest that you travel North on Lakewood Drive. You will cross a small bridge, turn left at the end of it onto the Central Valley Greenway/BC Parkway/North Grandview Hwy. This will take you to the corner of E. Broadway & Victoria Drive, from here you will be able to see the Sky Train stations. Cross the street in both directions (both North and West) and continue on the BC Parkway/North Grandview Hwy in the direction of Northwest. This is a lovely shortcut, it will take you directly to Commercial Drive through a pretty and quiet residential setting. See a map of this route in the photos.

Please note there are a number of local laundromats (many offer pick up/drop-off service). There is no washer/dryer on site.

If you have a smart phone or laptop we would highly recommend two apps to help you find your way around town. One is called 'Around Me', which will show nearby businesses and includes maps and routes to any location or place you type in.
The other is called 'Yelp' which has reviews of nearby businesses as well as directions. For fun things to see and do go to the 'tourismvancouver' website.
