Heritage Cottage across the street from great kayaking beach. On the bus route, so no car needed. Close to Ganges 8 min. & lots of great hikes. Family friendly neighborhood. Fully equipped with everything you need. Great for a family vacation!

The space

Funky, cosy heritage home on a bright and sunny lot. Lots of room for the family with a separate bedroom with a queen size bed and a open bright loft with two rooms that sleep 4. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to feel at home. Sunny deck off of the back, great for morning coffee or stargazing at night. Shady areas for relaxing and a fenced in yard for your pooch!! This is not a remote location, it is on the corner of two streets so expect some traffic noise.

Guest access

Great kayaking and bird watching beach across the street, close to St. Mary's Lake. Fenced in yard for dogs. Right on bus route, so getting into Ganges for the farmers market is easy. Only 8 minutes by car to Ganges.

Interaction with guests

I am not on island usually, but can be reached by cell phone. Lots of information about the island will be left at the cottage.

Other things to note

Salt Spring is a funky community full of artists and farmers. Great farmers market on Tuesday's and Saturday mornings. Beautiful hikes and wonderful warm lakes.

Michele's place is a funky old cottage with tons of life and character. You are close enough to everything to drive into town and to the lakes (we loved St. mary's lake), but also in the country to enjoy some peace and quiet. Great value and unique place on Salt Spring!!!

Michele's place is a quaint, character full cottage in a residential part of the island. It's well suited for a single family with kids aged between 4 & 10, as the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are in a loft above the living area. It is very pet friendly. There isn't much at a safe walking distance (no safe shoulder to the road), but a short drive/bus to Ganges or Fernwood makes it accessible to many amenities.

Great value for the island. It's a bit of a drive to the village so a car is a must. Michelle was a very responsive and helpful host!

This is a great cottage and very comfortable, like home. We enjoyed the sunny front porch very much, and the beds were a perfect arrangement for four of us. Well stocked kitchen; we had no trouble preparing our meals and enjoyed staying in for most of them. Lovely decor and location near the ocean. Would rent it again!

The house was perfect for our family. My girls loved sleeping in the loft and taking baths in the claw foot tub. It was centrally located to a lot of the beaches. We'd stay there again.

Michele's cabin was the perfect peaceful winter get-away for my friends and I. It's super cosy with the wood fireplace and big comfy L couch and blankets. The kitchen has everything you need to cook large meals for a big group. The wifi was really good. Michele was easy to communicate with and always available on the phone. The only small issue we had was when the water stopped, but Michele was very helpful in getting the water running again. All in all recomendable.
