Rustic Oceanview Cottage on Acreage

Southern Gulf Islands, BC, Canada
  • Cabin200 sq. ft.
  • Bedrooms0

  • Half Baths0
  • Mininum Stay2 nights
This idyllic cabin is set on a five acre property overlooking the Ganges Inlet. With blackberry bushes and fruit trees available for picking you are able to enjoy bounty from the property when in season. A spacious deck runs along the front of the cabin providing the ideal location for outdoor meals no matter the weather thanks to the roof with several skylights. Another deck overhangs the slope at the front of the property providing the perfect place for a coffee, if one of the multiple hammocks available are all taken. If you enjoy outdoor cooking you can enjoy cooking over an open fire, or a gas BBQ. Huge arbutus trees with their green and rust bark, firs and cedars populate the property, providing shade on a hot summers day. This is primarily a summer cabin, though it can also be a cosy get-away in the winter - with a small wood stove and base board heaters. There is a long unpaved drive-way - tricky to negotiate without a 4 wheel drive if it should snow. The water has also been known to freeze if temperatures plummet well below zero for an extended period. Mostly our winter weather is quite mild - but there are some risks in more severe weather. This cabin is not suitable for frail elderly, those intolerant of the odd visiting spider, or those who do not have sense of adventure and enjoyment of the outdoors. Price seen on the site listing is in US dollars. The quote sent will be in Canadian dollars. Please note there is an additional cleaning fee per visit.

                                                          Rustic Perfection

                                                          This is the place for an authenitic cabin experience - not a glammed up luxury cabin, but a cottage stripped to the basics - heat, check. (But you have to hatchet up the kindling!) Lights, check. (But you have to arrange them to your satisfaction). Hot running water, check. (But you have to wait for it!) The bathing situation is a little primitive - but that's what makes it so real. I even loved evidence of mouse visitors - it just makes it AUTHENTIC in my mind. My 4 nights in the cabin clarified what is essential, (hammocks) and what is fluff (wifi). I'm a better person for having stayed and thrived here.

                                                          Absolutely perfect place!

                                                          This place was exactly what we hoped for - quiet, private, clean, cozy, well equipped and has a spectacular view. We loved every minute here and would definitely come back.

                                                          Our Summer Haven

                                                          We always love spending a week of our summer...wish it was more...at this charming little cabin. You can sip your coffee in the morning and watch and listen to the Island come awake as you look down on Ganges Harbour. We love watching the birds and lazing in the Adirondack chairs, playing the games and puzzles provided at the cabin. While their is no oven, there is a stovetop and the grill for preparing meals with all the lovely fresh produce and breads you can purchase on the Island and then dining al fresco with that beautiful view. The cabin in summer is a good fit for our family of three as the covered deck adds another room. While on Saltspring we always enjoy kayaking, hiking and visiting our favourite spots...especially the wineries and Wild Cider, as well the Salt Spring Bread Lady. Highly advise spending your day at the shops around Ganges mid week when it is much quieter and, while the Saturday Market is a requisite and worthy venture, head out EARLY...the parking chaos and crowds make it unbearable much past 10am. The Tuesday market is much much smaller but also more relaxing. Enjoy! We always do. :)
