This cottage was perfect. It has great views, wonderful sunsets, good hikes with wildflowers, and very private. The cottage was clean and had the essentials to cook a few meals. It had a washer and dryer which was great. Although, we didn't meet the owners, their daughter was more than hospitable. Would recommend this to others and we will return again. Wonderful spot!

Wonderful Stay at this Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights April 2016 - a truly relaxing and private stay. This cottage is very well equipped with all kitchen things needed, books, games, movies, linens etc. It's very clean and spacious set in a peaceful location. Hot tub is a lovely way to spend an evening overlooking ocean views and sunsets. Bed and pillows are super comfy!!

Approx 15 mins into town that has well stocked and reasonably priced grocery and liquor stores, restaurants and shops. The Saturday craft market which is worth the trip for fresh locally grown herbs, veggies, flowers, breads and other locally made items! There are many fabulous walking and hiking trails on the island too.

Denise was very flexible and helpful as we made our reservation and welcomed us upon arrival. She was quick to respond to queries through emails/texts throughout our stay but provided great privacy otherwise. We would definitely recommend About Thyme Cottage and go back again. Thank you so much for having us Denise and Ken!

The "perfect" cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this cottage in Salt Spring. There is nothing more you could ask for from first class accommodations, hot tub, deer sightings in the front/back yard, ocean views. What a treat. We cannot wait to go back. Thanks again Denise.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad I stumbled upon this! Denise is a lovely person and clearly takes great pride in the care of her cottage. Upon arriving, she was there to greet us with fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from her garden. The cottage was spotless, charming, and fully equipped. I had the deepest, peaceful sleeps while there with no sounds other than birds chirping. My wife and I enjoyed walks in the neighborhood along peaceful, picturesque, country roads passing by farms with horses, cows, sheep, and deer frolicking about in open fields. Additionally, the entire island of Salt Spring is incredibly beautiful and the tiny village of Ganges has every amenity to make one's stay comfortable.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our weekend getaway to About Thyme Cottage on Salt Spring and it was really hard to leave! The cottage was perfect, with thoughtful amenities and interesting touches everywhere, and total privacy. We enjoyed hiking around the local trails, touring Ganges and the peace and quiet of the cottage immensely! It was the perfect getaway and we would highly recommend it. Thanks Denise!
