Ganges cabin description

Welcome to Touch the Sky B&B, Salt Spring Island, B.C.

The B&B consists of 2 private suite's. This site is dedicated only to the 'Western Suite'. Located on 5 sunny acres, nestled beside a forest near the end of a ridge. For info on The Ridge Suite check VRBO listing # 312676, or go to my website.

Sorry, there is no breakfast provided for the Western Suite, however I do provide organic fair trade coffee and a wide selection of teas. In the summer I can, if available, offer a selection of fresh herbs, usually sage and oregano.

Touch the Sky B&B is just a 5 minute drive south of Ganges, central to the whole island.

Come and relax, read, meditate on life, nourish your soul in my private luxury suite that has all of the urban sophistication you may be used to and more. Add a touch of Salt Spring charm and you have Touch the Sky B&B.

From here - explore the whole island! Drive or take the bus south to Fulford, go north to Ganges (5 minutes away), and beyond. Explore the Saturday Market, Galleries, Shops, Eateries and Park lands of Salt Spring Island. Use Touch the Sky to make day trips and explore other islands if you like too.

Here you'll enjoy peace and quiet, the use of your own full kitchen with an outdoor BBQ. Hang out and relax in the sun or shade, watch the dragonflies, hawks and swallows. Deer come and go day and night. Go for a walk along my roads, sit in the shade & relax. Find some peace of mind.

You are about to experience one of the most beautiful and relaxing places on Earth!

I want to make your stay a wonderful memory, every time.

              The Saturday market which runs from mid spring to late October is a fantastic way to get to know what Salt Spring offers, and a must do for short stays as you get a good slice of the artists, crafts & food the island offers without having to drive all over the place.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Hello! My name is Lloyd Nicholson & I am the owner/operator of Touch The Sky B&B. Am about to start my 4th year in the business. I am interested & love people. Plus I am an excellent cook so my breakfasts are really wonderful.

              Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
              I love my home and Salt Spring Island, and this you'll understand when you are here. The Island is full of wonderful & interesting people, artists, musicians, skilled crafts people, etc.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              My place is generally very quiet (except for the odd airplane). You'll get to see lots of deer usually, many types of seasonal birds etc. I am located very close to the heart of the island (the town of Ganges), so it is wonderful for being able to get around by car, or local transit. The suite is very spacious at 600 sq. feet, so plenty of room!
