Paddler’s Rest is a retro-styled, lakeside cottage nestled in the hillside on serene Cusheon Lake.
Situated across from a working organic farm on a tranquil and secluded arm of this peaceful lake, the cottage features funky vintage furnishings and collectables.
From the checkered floor to the original half round walls in the living area, the retro feel is continued in the lake-themed appointed two bedrooms and bath.
Sleeping four people, the cottage features a family oriented sleeping arrangement. One bedroom with a comfortable pillow-top queen sized bed and a second bedroom with two comfy twin beds. Plus a vintage pull-out couch in the living room.
Double doors in the living area open to a large deck that runs the length of the cottage. Wake up to sunshine while sipping coffee at our amazing Pickle Ridge twig furniture set on the peaceful deck. Gaze across to the farm beyond or to the glistening lake and spacious dock below.
The private dock receives full all day sun with lots of room to spread out water toys and picnic blankets. Kick back and relax with a good book in the Adirondack chairs or enjoy lunch at the picnic table. Paddle around the lake on one of our kayaks or canoe. Excellent fishing (sorry no gas motors) and warm swimming waters await.
Paddler’s Rest is only 10 minutes from Ganges, the heart of Salt Spring Island where visitors can enjoy pubs, bistros, restaurants, art galleries, unique boutiques, live theatre, concerts and on Saturday, guests can take in the very popular market in the park. We are central to the many Salt Spring Island attractions, such as Mt. Maxwell, Ruckle Park, and many beautiful ocean beaches.
