About the owner: Matt and I are long time islanders. Matt has lived on Salt Spring for 20 years after having vacationed here every summer since 1968. I have lived here for most of my life. My family roots go back to the 1930's and 40's when 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! We are proud parents of 2 fantastic boys and loving owners of Hank, the Golden Retriever. Matt is the owner of Steffich Fine Art and I am the pharmacy manager at Downtown Pharmasave. Matt and I have travelled extensively to Australia, Mexico, and the USA, and we have spent many vacations exploring BC and Vancouver Island. Having stayed in a wide variety of accommodations we realized that simple and relaxed, private and convenient, comfortable and casual were the most appealing features of our vacation accommodations. As dog people, we really appreciate being able to travel with our dog. He is an important part of our family and travelling without him would be like leaving one of the kids at home!
Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada:
In 2010 we made a decision 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
