Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Ocean Front Cottage

A perfect blend of ocean front privacy and convenience, Clark Cottage is located just a two minute drive from the Ganges town centre on Saltspring Island.

This storybook home comes fully furnished, and sits up on a hill with acres of old growth forest behind it. In front, there is a spectacular vista of mountains and ocean. The grounds have many mature plantings and fruit trees, as well as a tennis court and lovely deck that is accessed from French doors from the kitchen and living rooms.

There are two bedrooms, and a sun room at the front of the house offering 360 degree views of the ocean scenery. The large living/dining room has a cozy fireplace and original fir floors.

There is a bathroom with a tub on the main floor, plus another bathroom downstairs with a separate shower. Shaw Cable provides the high-speed internet service. The living space is 1200 Sq. Feet.

The property offers incredible wildlife - eagles nesting in the fir trees, seals swimming in the harbour - making this a truly remarkable location on a very special island.

The property has its own dock and moorage in sheltered Walter Bay.

Beautiful grounds with orchard and private tennis court.

Loveliest spot on Salt Spring Island, hands down!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is virtually our piece of holiday heaven! High above the bay approaching Ganges, it provides us endless hours of quiet reflection and/or entertainment watching the float planes take off and land.... The property is gated and fenced and a wonderfully safe space for kids and well behaved pets. We bring our two elderly dogs who spend most of their time lolling and rolling on the well kept lawns. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a beautiful large barbeque on the deck outside the kitchen door. The cottage is cozy and very comfortable. Don't miss the huge Saturday market where one can purchase VERY fresh, organic veggies and fruits and all the breads and pastries you'd ever want! There is a regulation sized tennis court and a dock below the cottage to launch a canoe or a kayak. The owners are Gwen and Dick Newton, wonderfully friendly and very helpful hosts. This is the quintessential vacation spot, not to be missed!! We love it here, and plan to return next summer...and the next summer...and the ...

Enjoy the Serenity.

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous ocean view out front. Old growth forest out back. A delightful home with lots of space, comfortable beds and a cozy, comfortable feeling in every room. We could have been happy never leaving the property, but when we did explore the Island, it was lovely too. Some great restaurants, coffee shops etc and a fantastic used book store. For anyone who wants some 'down-time', this is the place! Thank you Gwen . . . we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and thank you for allowing us to experience Clark Cottage. Susan

Wonderful holiday cottage, not to be missed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Clark Cottage and we plan to return next year! Totally private, gated and fenced, very comfortable cottage fully equipped with every amenity. Perfect spot for a much needed rest for busy folks. Town of Ganges an easy walk or two minute drive. Lovely, caring owners, Gwen and Dick. Don't miss this one!

Clarks Cottage - A Salt Spring Island Wonder

  • 5 of 5

This property is a little slice of paradise. The view on the water is gorgeous, with the comings and goings of boats in the channel and the attendance of a number of birds and aquatic mammals. What a delight to sit on the deck with a glass of wine to watch it all happen. The accommodations in the house are first-rate, and we lacked for nothing. It was all so glorious and over much too quickly.

Clarks Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at this home! The beds were comfy, the property was gorgeous & we experienced the true relaxation we'd been seeking! We really enjoyed the luxury of eating all our meals watching the ocean. We played tennis several times & felt like we were in the days of The Great Gatsby!
