Property description

The Gallery Cabin, a 100 year-old log cabin, lovingly refurbished with a new bathroom and kitchenette. Perfect for singles or couples the 240 square foot cabin has a brand new queen size bed, kitchen nook with sink, microwave, kettle, toaster, toaster oven and fridge, and a bathroom with shower and towel warming rack. Breakfast makings are provided: home-made granola, jam, milk, juice, eggs, butter, bread, yoghurt, fruit and coffee and teas. A private deck soaks up the afternoon sun with a table, chairs and BBQ.

The Gallery Cabin is on the 2 1/2 acre property of Celia Duthie & Nicholas Hunt - with 1 other rental (Gallery B&B) a fine art gallery and a sculpture park. It is surrounded by gardens and forest views.

The cabin is a short walk from the nearby village Ganges, Churchill beach, and across the street from the prestigious Hastings House Hotel. There is a public bus service from the ferry terminals so guests can (if they wish) come to the island without a car and enjoy the island by foot, bus, kayak or rental scooter.

Salt Spring Island has an embarrassment of riches in art and music with many galleries, studios, and music venues. The Saturday Market, with spectacular farm produce, cheeses, and crafts, is a perennial favorite.

A good time to come to the island is often the off season, when the almost always temperate weather is fine for golfing, biking, walking, exploring the island or taking one of many excellent art and craft courses offered throughout the year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband Nicholas Hunt and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have 2 children and 3 cats. Much of our life was spent in the book business in Vancouver; now as well as the B&B we have a gallery of fine and landscape art. We love to cook, eat, walk, read, garden and play bridge.

Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
We chose our location because it is a very pretty pastoral property surrounded by forests and our house is a lovely hand-built cottage. The proximity to Ganges, Churchill Beach and many of the island amenities was another factor in our choice.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Visitors will enjoy the historical experience of the 100 year-old cabin and appreciate the art and studio furniture in the cabin. They can also enjoy the landscape art and sculpture on the property and the top quality artists in the Duthie Gallery. As hosts we can recommend restaurants, studios and excursions, and provide maps of trails for hikes and rambles. The cabin is completely private, with a private entrance; guests will feel they're in their own place while staying with us. There is always a good supply of current books and magazines available in the suite. Visitors to our Gallery Cabin will also enjoy its close proximity to the shops, galleries and restaurants of Ganges village, and for lavish dining, the Hastings House hotel, directly across the street.
