This idyllic cabin is set on a five acre property overlooking the Ganges Inlet. With blackberry bushes and fruit trees available for picking you are able to enjoy bounty from the property when in season. A spacious deck runs along the front of the cabin providing the ideal location for outdoor meals no matter the weather thanks to the roof with several skylights. Another deck overhangs the slope at the front of the property providing the perfect place for a coffee, if one of the multiple hammocks available are all taken. If you enjoy outdoor cooking you can enjoy cooking over an open fire, or a gas BBQ. Huge arbutus trees with their green and rust bark, firs and cedars populate the property, providing shade on a hot summers day.
This is primarily a summer cabin, though it can also be a cosy get-away in the winter - with a small wood stove and base board heaters. There is a long unpaved drive-way - tricky to negotiate without a 4 wheel drive if it should snow. The water has also been known to freeze if temperatures plummet well below zero for an extended period. Mostly our winter weather is quite mild - but there are some risks in more severe weather.
This cabin is not suitable for frail elderly, those intolerant of the odd visiting spider, or those who do not have sense of adventure and enjoyment of the outdoors.
The sleeping loft contains a queen mattress and a double mattress which would easily sleep 2 adults and 2 small children (or 3 adults). The loft is only accessible by a vertical ladder and has a low ceiling.
The main floor boasts a futon which folds into a generous double bed. In the summer you can also comfortably sleep out on the covered porch on mattresses.
The cabin could sleep 4 adults and 2 children in total.

About the owner: Immigrants from South Africa, the owners live in nearby Mill Bay - and enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle - gardening, hiking and kayaking. Saltspring provides a prefect getaway from busy professional lives - to read, reflect, and get away from electronic media and demands of the 'real world'.
Why the Owner Chose Ganges: When we first visited this property the long and winding driveway took us unexpectedly onto a ridge where we fell in love with the view, the spaciousness and the sense of being 'somewhere else' far away from it all.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Listening to the sounds of neighboring sheep and roosters complete the rural ambiance as you swing in the hammock reading a favourite book, overlooking the fantastic view.
