Getting Here

The ferry to Lasqueti departs from French Creek, a few minutes north of Parksville. The ride is an hour long and is passenger only, meaning you can not drive here. I will be waiting to pick up on this end and bring you and your things to the house. The ferry schedule is as follows:

Departing French Creek:

Monday: 9:45am, 2:30pm,5:30pm

Tues: No Ferry

Wed thru Sat: 9:45am,2:30pm,5:30pm, (No Wednesday ferry from Sept-June)

Sunday: 2:30pm, 5:30pm

Departing Lasqueti:

Monday: 8:00am,11:00am,4:00pm

Tues: No Ferry

Wed-Sat: 8:00am,11:00am,4:00pm (No Wednesday ferry from Sept-June)

Sunday: 1:00pm,4:00pm

The ferry is busy in Summer with regular overloads so getting there early and getting passes is recommended. The passes are in a yellow box right next to where the ferry docks and you must be on board 15min prior to sailing for your pass to be valid. Try and pack your stuff tightly and together as the ferry fills up and it gets quite hectic unloading. (Us locals favour labeled Rubbermaid totes or boxes as they stack well and make offloading easier)

Cost for the ferry 

Adults :$11.75 ($10.50 winter)

Children/seniors: $5.75 ($5.25 winter)

Dogs and bikes:$5:00

These prices are paid each way and only cash is accepted. The ferry crew collect fares during the crossing. 

History

The Teapot House was built in the 1920’s by George Hadley, and named for the brick fireplace chimney shaped as a teapot. Once a coffee pot chimney stood above the kitchen stove but sadly had to be removed during a roof refurbishment. 

The building has seen many incarnations in its roughly 100 years, including early pioneer homestead, hippie commune, restaurant  and music venue. The property has seen hundreds of weddings, funerals, baby showers, and is the traditional location of our annual firefighters fundraising picnic and Halloween.
