"We spent a wonderful week at Fernwood Beach House. We loved the house and it was perfect for our needs. It is nicely furnished and decorated and the kitchen is large and has everything one could need to make a meal. The beds were comfortable with nice linens and there were ample and good quality towels, dish cloths, etc. We enjoyed sitting on the deck for meals and star-gazing at night. We saw hummingbirds, grouse and bunnies from the deck. We walked along the beach just below and went to the wharf in the evenings to watch the sunset. We had coffee at the Fernwood Cafe a short walk away. Our two adult sons joined us for a couple of nights and the house was perfect for the four of us. We went swimming at St Mary's Lake which is a short drive away and into Ganges, which is also nearby. We loved the honour veggie stands that were everywhere. The location of the cottage is excellent and the road that its on is quiet and fine for walking and cycling. I would definitely book again and found Trinda helpful and pleasant to work with."

"My husband and I enjoyed our weeklong stay at the Cottage of Tranquility. Set on a hill above the owner's farm, surrounded by tall trees and a view down to the meadow, it truly is a tranquil place. I loved sitting on the porch each morning surrounded by nature with only the clucking of chickens and birdsong to be heard. Such a welcome change for a city dweller.
The cottage is spacious, tastefully decorated, clean, and comfortable. We appreciated the welcome basket of breakfast supplies and also having access to the extensive DVD collection.
Having our own, private hot tub was a real bonus. Whether soaking by night, or late afternoon after exploring the island, the hot tub was such a treat, especially being outdoors with vines and trees surrounding it.
The cottage is just a few minutes drive from the hub of the island activity in Ganges. If walking, one could do it in 30 -45 minutes depending on your pace.
Philip and Kim are friendly hosts and we enjoyed spending some time with them on our only rainy day.
We chose this vacation cottage because we wanted a peaceful self-catering vacation home with outdoor space to enjoy and we certainly were not disappointed. I would give it four and a half star rating."

"My husband and I stayed two nights at The Duthie Gallery B&B Suite. Celia and Nick were gracious hosts and made us feel most welcome. Nick gave us some tips on hiking trails. Celia gave us tips on local places to visit and dine at. Breakfast supplies and teas were thoughtfully provided. We delighted being surrounded by beautiful works of art in the suite itself, including the furniture. Only a short walk into town, made the B&B a really ideal location. Celia's love of gardening clearly shows in the garden, such a peaceful, beautiful location.
We marveled at the wood and bronze sculptures in the Gallery and Gallery Garden. At night the garden is illuminated, giving the pieces a different perspective and twist.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Celia and Nick and staying at their lovely Gallery B&B. An experience to be remembered."

"Its a small cabin but very well appointed and super cute. Love the private orchard setting. The location is great, walking distance to Ganges, and backing onto trail access. The owners were easy going but professional and very courteous. My only caution is that it is on the smaller side (with 4 people its kind of like the two beds are more bunk-beds than separate rooms) but this is reflected in the affordable price. I would suggest being comfortable with your travel-mates :-) I will certainly come again and recommend the place to others! P.S. Awesome if you have a dog :-)"
