Lovely and comfortable cottage on beautiful Salt Spring Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful 6-night visit at Eagle's Nest Cottage. Very comfortable, quiet, and great location. The cottage is nicely appointed with everything we needed. We prepared several meals in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoyed the view across the channel to Vancouver Island (until it was obscured by smoke from BC wildfires), picked blackberries just outside the door, soaked in the hot tub, and simply relaxed. Although Monika was away, she made sure her neighbor and daughter checked in with us, so we were well taken care of. So many lovely details: double paned windows, grape vines painted on the concrete floor to disguise some cracks, lots of fluffy towels, plenty of hangers and empty shelves for clothes, fans to cool the rooms, binoculars, board games, an outdoor shower for the hot tub, gas grill, plenty of good kitchen tools and even a roll of plastic wrap. We would happily recommend this cottage to anyone, anytime.

Perfect cottage on a perfect island

  • 5 of 5

This is going to be the place we'll stay at whenever we come to Salt Spring Island! My husband and I have been frequent visitors to Salt Spring, and this cottage is our new favourite. Incredible views greet you upon opening the door, a quaint kitchen is perfect for cooking meals in, and the bed is fantastic for sleeping in in the mornings. There's a beach close by for watching sunsets and when you come back to the cottage, warm up in the hot tub on site. This place is sunny, with stunning views, and the perfect hideaway for a quiet weekend on Salt Spring. We can't wait to come back next year!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful time staying at this cottage! The kitchen is fully equipped (although the knives were quite dull, wish there was a sharpener!). The biggest perks were the BBQ, fireplace, and hot tub, which we made great use of! It is also a good location - close enough to Ganges (~15-20min drive) to pop into the grocery store and Embe Bakery (awesome bread and scones!), but far enough away that it is peaceful and quiet. There are some wonderful trails just down the road leading to great beaches that get lots of late afternoon sun. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely getaway

  • 4 of 5

The Eagle's Nest Cottage was exactly as pictured. The views from the bedroom and the main area were nice! The gas grill was definitely a big plus as we planned a meal around that. The kitchen was well stocked though we wished we had a few more items as we had to be a bit innovative with what we had. Because there is no dishwasher, we found the dishes were a bit dirty when we took them out of the cupboards. This isn't a fault of the owners, just something we noticed. One of the main reasons we chose the cottage was for the hot tub. We would have liked to be able to change the temperature but otherwise we were happy with it! Monika came to greet us and was very pleasant and kind. Unfortunately during our stay we didn't realize that we weren't as remote as we thought we were and were too loud when we were out in the hot tub at around 11pm at night but Monika handled it well, giving us a warning. Oops! We saw plenty of deer on our drives to and from Ganges. We also enjoyed having the Channel Ridge trail right at our doorstep. All in all, it was a very nice stay with our dog.

Owner's Response: If you have a minute can you please let me know what kind of item you would like me to add to the kitchen to make it more functional. Sorry about the dirty dishes. I have to check it more often!

Lovely dog friendly home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

My two dogs and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay. The bed was VERY comfy, the kitchen had everything I needed and the views towards Vancouver Island from the living area, eating area and bedroom were beautiful (once the smoke from the wildfires cleared). I spent many hours on the deck enjoying sun all day then watching the sunsets in the evening. The only reason I gave a four star rating was because the hot tub was not working during my stay, which was very disappointing but it was a sudden problem that couldn't be fixed while I

was there. Monika has offered to compensate me for the inconvenience, which I appreciate. The dogs and I explored the nearby Channel Ridge trail system and really enjoyed spending a couple of hours on the beach (after following trail #1). On our last day, we discovered Duck Creek about five minutes down Sunset Drive that was a really fantastic place to let the dogs run around and expend some energy. I have stayed on Saltspring Island before but never in Vesuvius and liked the fact that it was only 15 minutes to Ganges but

was quieter and less busy than points farther south on the island. I met Monika's neighbour Denise who was very kind and helpful and also met Monika's daughters who were very lovely. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone especially people looking for a very dog friendly and relaxing escape.
