About Christine Steffich
I am a long time islander. I have lived here for most of my life and my family roots go back to the 1930's and 40's. My great-grandparents farmed on the north end of the island, boating their produce around the 'Hook' to Ganges every Saturday during the summer - the original Salt Spring Farmer's Market. I have 2 fantastic sons, one 27 and one 14, and a friendly Black Lab named Mojo. I am also a pharmacist at the Pharmasave in Ganges. I have travelled extensively to Australia, Mexico, and the USA, and have spent many vacations exploring BC and Vancouver Island. Having stayed in a wide variety of accommodations I realized that simple and relaxed, private and convenient, comfortable and casual were the most appealing features of my vacation accommodations. As a dog person, I really appreciate being able to travel with my dog. He is an important part of our family and travelling without him would be like leaving one of the kids at home!
Why Christine Steffich chose Salt Spring Island
In 2010 we decided to share our cabin as a vacation rental so others could come and discover the magic that is Salt Spring Island. The cabin was just a sleeping cabin when we bought the house in 2002. Our friend, Jeremiah Hart, moved into the cabin soon after and traded rent for renovations. Jeremiah lived in the cabin for 5 years and, with his masterful use of space and natural materials, transformed it into a lovely little self-contained cabin that is comfortable summer and winter. The main feature is the deck situated under a large apple tree where you can relax in the peace and quiet of the backyard orchard.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cabin is a short walk to shopping and restaurants in Ganges. Dog walking and hiking trails are easily accessed just steps from the cabin. Wine tours, boat cruises, parks, scenic drives, swimming lakes and beaches are a short drive away.
