Property description

Orchard Cabin on Salt Spring Island is the perfect private retreat for artists, writers, poets, or musicians. It is also a great getaway for a romantic honeymoon or anniversary. Or bring the kids and the dog!

Peace and quiet surrounds you. Waken in you cosy loft bed to the songbirds' serenade. Enjoy your self-prepared breakfast on the deck with freshly brewed coffee or tea. Coffee, tea, and cream will be supplied. Delight in some of Salt Spring's fine locally prepared cheese or fruit preserves, wholesome breads and farm fresh eggs that you can purchase at the Saturday Market, a roadside farmstand, or straight from the farm!

Then make your way into Ganges Village to check out ArtCraft and  to browse the local shops and galleries.  Saturday morning is when Salt Spring hosts the famous Salt Spring Market. Be sure to treat yourself to lunch at one of the many unique restaurants and cafes. Don't forget to try some gelato at Harlan's!

Grace Point Square is where you will find Lyman Whitaker's Windsculptures. These mesmerizing works of art are available in Canada exclusively throughyour host, Matt, at Steffich Fine Art in Grace Point Square.

If adventure is on your mind, check out fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, whale watching, biking, or hiking. Take a Studio Tour. Go on a boat tour or dinner cruise. Explore Salt Spring's history or just relax at one of the many beaches, lakes and parks.

On your way back to the cabin, pick up some fresh seafood at The Fishery or some crab at Centennial dock. Add to this some fresh produce from the Salt Spring Market and a bottle of wine from one of the local vineyards to make a delicious island meal. Then bask in the balmy warmth of a summer evening on Salt Spring Island.

Have a fabulous vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Matt and I are long time islanders. Matt has lived on Salt Spring for 20 years after having vacationed here every summer since 1968. I have lived here for most of my life. My family roots go back to the 1930's and 40's when my great-grandparents farmed on the north end of the island, boating their produce around the 'Hook' to Ganges every Saturday during the summer - the original Salt Spring Farmer's Market! We are proud parents of 2 fantastic boys and loving owners of Hank, the Golden Retriever. Matt is the owner of Steffich Fine Art and I am the pharmacy manager at Downtown Pharmasave. Matt and I have travelled extensively to Australia, Mexico, and the USA, and we have spent many vacations exploring BC and Vancouver Island. Having stayed in a wide variety of accommodations we realized that simple and relaxed, private and convenient, comfortable and casual were the most appealing features of our vacation accommodations. As dog people, we really appreciate being able to travel with our dog. He is an important part of our family and travelling without him would be like leaving one of the kids at home!

Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
In 2010 we made a decision to share our cabin as a vacation rental so others could come and discover the magic that is Salt Spring Island. The cabin was just a sleeping cabin when we bought the house in 2002. Our friend, Jeremiah Hart, moved into the cabin soon after and traded rent for renovations. Jeremiah lived in the cabin for 5 years and, with his masterful use of space and natural materials, transformed it into a lovely little self-contained cabin that is comfortable summer and winter. The main feature is the deck situated under a large apple tree where you can relax in the peace and quiet of the backyard orchard.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin is a short walk to shopping and restaurants in Ganges. Dog walking and hiking trails are easily accessed just steps from the cabin. Wine tours, boat cruises, parks, scenic drives, swimming lakes and beaches are a short drive away.
