Delightful self-contained B&B cottage located in the popular south end of Salt Spring Island. The cottage is a completely separate and private building with parking just outside the door. There is a private outside area with a picnic table and two Adirondack chairs for your use.

The space
You’ll be close to lots of walking trails, kayak/canoe launching beaches, two swimming lakes and some of the most beautiful ocean beaches on the island. Ruckle Park, Barbara’s bakery stand, Salt Spring Cheese, Stowel Lake Farm and The Gatehouse Yoga Centre, two wineries and a brewery are all in the neighbourhood and just a few minutes away. A very special part of the island beckons.

The craftsman style cottage offers a loft bedroom with a queen bed. If you require 2 beds, we can provide the queen in the loft and a single on the main floor. The main floor offers the OPTION of a king bed (2 singles together) and is ONLY AVAILABLE BY SPECIAL REQUEST. All the beds have memory foam topped mattresses. All are very comfortable and have quality cotton sheets and goose down duvets and goose down filled pillows. Depending on your preference, YOU CAN CHOOSE which bed and bedroom suits your needs. The cottage is suitable for 2 adults. Unfortunately, this cottage is not suited for infants or young children. The cottage is completely separate from the main house.

Our pure abundant well water means you won't need to bring drinking water. The private bathroom on the main floor has a walk-in shower and low flush toilet. You have all the conveniences in your B+B style kitchen to make your stay functional and enjoyable. A large closet space gives you plenty of room to put your things away.

If you treasure natural beauty and tranquility then this might be the spot for you! The very private cottage is separate from the main house, and they are located on 3+ acres of a forested and moss-covered meadow. Sunlight abounds and views from your picture windows are mesmerizing.

Attention to detail at every turn in building this cottage has created a warm and welcoming ambience. Your hosts, Diane and Jim, will be available to offer Island information when you want it.
