Ganges cottage description

This is the very best of West Coast Canada!

This romantic cottage has it all. So private, yet close to all the excitement of Ganges Harbour. The famous Saltspring Weekend Market is a 2 minute stroll away along the water's edge. Wonderful art galleries, restaurants, shops, pubs, studios are all within a wander from your private sanctuary in the trees.

There is much to do here for all ages. On the property, there is plenty of exploring to do, and the 300 feet of private beach front to enjoy.

A vast variety of birds and other wildlife make this 4 acre property home. Watch the swans, eagles, hummingbirds, quail and other exotic birds from the beach and expansive veranda. Raccoons, otters, deer and other critters are curious, safe and plentiful.

Off the property, hiking, kayaking, sailing, golfing, fine dining, casual dining, patio drinking, swimming, shopping, scuba diving, a day at the spa, fishing, yoga, farmers markets, etc... are all close at hand.

I guarantee you will love your stay here as much as we do!

This house is operated by the Island Heritage Appreciation Club which allows members to use it to cover the costs. Membership is open to all those who appreciate well-maintained heritage properties.
