Where to this weekend, Vancouver Island: Step into a Fairy-tale at the Crazy Cookie House: Delightful Treats in a Whimsical Garden

A fairy tail garden with a gravel path leading to a whimsical building on Vancouver Island The Crazy Cookie House in Metchosin isn’t your typical farmstand — it’s a whimsical wonderland, a family-run business that has infused delicious creativity into the heart of the community. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, this charming spot is a must-visit that will bring fun to your taste buds and a smile to your face!

Just off the beaten path, the Crazy Cookie House is nestled conveniently in the same parking lot as the trailhead that leads to Witty’s Lagoon and Sitting Lady Waterfall — the perfect treat to reward your hiking efforts. But the sweet surprises don’t end with the location. This delightful farmstand operates from a unique, custom-built playhouse — a renovation project of a structure originally constructed for the owners’ children. Now, it’s a whimsical storehouse of heavenly cookies with the most unique and crazy toppings you can imagine!

The garden surrounding the house is nothing short of a fairy-tale setting. Meet Doug H. Dragon, the guardian of the cookie house, and his friendly companion, Chip the Mouse. Both are creations of the talented Paul Lewis, the mastermind behind other popular local sculptures like the Sasquatch at East Sooke and the fun driftwood animals along the beach at Esquimalt Lagoon.
