Car: Recommended

The island is approx. 22 miles long and 4-5 miles wide and named after the salt water springs at the islands' north end. Steeped in history, the ambiance is much like an English countryside with many local famous artists and skilled craftspeople holding open studio tours. A renowned local farmer's and craft market (not to be missed) every Saturday. Local vineyard tours & wine tasting as well as amazing goat cheeses and soap works- the list is endless!

The locals are almost too friendly!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: Owned mutually by 4 siblings who live in four different cities and 2 countries- but rest assured, we'll be there for all your needs! We all love to 'come home' periodically and relax and re-connect with our siblings.

Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
Our parents built this charming home for their retirement and upon their passing we all had such pleasant times and memories of Salt Spring that we decided we should allow others to experience the unique warmth and rest of Allison (our dear mother) House as it became known. We have kept the name in her honor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking distance (2 miles) or a short car trip from the largest village (Ganges) on the island.
