White Horse Sanctuary
**Guidance · Wisdom · Healing · Love**

Slowing down, into horse time, is a meditation in nature. In the presence of horses, the electromagnetic energy fields of your human heart and brain come into a state of coherence - that’s why being around them feels so good.
Zen Garden Cottage
Zen is Located in Smelt Bay, one of the most preferred destinations of Cortes Island. The cottage has a separate 1 bedroom, with an open floor plan that sits above sea level offering a vantage overview of Smelt bay and historical provincial park.
The forefront intertidal view with southwestern exposure, back dropped by the Strathcona mountain range offers the night lights of urban life while immersed in privacy and nature, last light of the day, ever changing scenery and spectacular sunsets.

The cottage is suited ideally for couples seeking romantic getaways, but also has the ability to accommodate additional persons or close family, with a double sleeping sofa in the main living area, as well as tenting option in the exterior garden space. /
