Beautiful and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very beautiful experience on Salt Spring Island while at this home. Thanks to our kind and friendly hostess, we had absolutely everything we could possibly need to have an amazing stay. I'd love to know where you got your garlic press, Lorraine - it was the best one any of us had ever used!! Thank you again for the beautiful home~!

Our Wonderful Week on Salt Spring Island (Aug. 31 to Sept.7/17)

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lorraine for such a memorable week. Your attention to detail, your hospitality and friendliness was very much appreciated. Our week on Salt Spring was extremely hot (30C +) and to come back to your retreat was so much cooler and so relaxing. There was so much privacy and calm yet if one wanted all of the activities the island had to offer it was all fairly close by.

Having cocktails on your deck looking at the beautiful ocean and mountain views was so lovely. We would highly recommend a stay at your home.

Don't forget when you visit, touring the wineries, the galleries, the shopping and last but not least the great food are all a must. Dinner at Piccolo's was fantastic. Fish and chips at the Seaside Kitchen also recommended. A must see is the Saturday Market which offers so many unique items. There is something for everyone and so many walking/hiking trails to choose from.

We will return.

Warmest Regards,

Norma and Michael Lawrence

Peaceful, charming and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the peace and quite of this property. We are nature lovers so we liked the setting of this property. Great sunsets, beautiful trees, and sightings of wild life.

This property has a nice feel. We spent two weeks there with our daughters.

Really nice place with an incredible view from the deck.

  • 4 of 5

Lorraine's place was great. Very comfortable and well stocked with everything you'd need. The location is only about a ten minute drive away from Ganges and a fifteen minute walk down to the rocky Bader's beach. The evening views from the deck really are stunning. In terms of Salt Spring itself, we had a great time at beaches, in lakes, on hikes and exploring the coast - a great getaway with young kids.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic retreat! We were a family of five including my 80yo mother and our two kids ages 17 and 19. We stayed just three nights. The house is modern, spotless, spacious, inviting and has a well-stocked kitchen. The sun coming through the windows in the late afternoon was divine. It was cloudy most of the time we were there, but we enjoyed an incredible sunset on the first night. The view from the living spaces and deck were breathtaking even on the gloomiest day. It was the summer solstice and wasn't dark til well after 10:30! The property is quiet and feels private, even though there are actually houses on either side of you (not too close though). Being from San Diego and Tucson we loved the lush greenery everywhere. The owner was lovely, attentive and offered good suggestions. There are just three steps down from the main floor to the LR/deck/master BR, but no other steps to contend with (good for my mom). Walking up and down the driveway and residential street was a little strenuous for her, but this isnt a criticism of the house, just worth noting it you have older or disabled people in your group. We took a whale watching tour, hiked Mt. Erskine, went down to the beach near the house (steep if you plan to walk there and back, but also accessible by car), went to the mid-week market in Ganges (a must!), enjoyed the gorgeous Ganges Harbor, ate at Mobys twice and at the Oystercatcher once (both great). Worth noting that everything closes in Ganges very early. A late dinner or dinner-time shopping isn't possible. During our time on SSI we saw deer, squirrel, many songbirds, hummingbirds, an otter, seals, 8 orcas and many sea lions on our whale tour, 5 bald eagles, heron and much more. We went to Victoria for 3 nights afterwards which was lovely, but I wish we had been able to stay in this house for at least a week! A perfect place to relax and unwind...
