sister retreat success

  • 5 of 5

Lorraine's home is beautiful and relaxing, thank you so much for being accommodating and helping us stay with you. My sister and I (and both our dogs) had a great time on Saltspring. It's so nice to find a LOVELY home that is DOG friendly. The open floor layout had ocean views from each room. The sunken living room was so cozy with a fireplace and comfy couches. The kitchen had high quality appliances, and all the tools you could need to make your own meals. The bedrooms were quiet and on the opposite sides of the house for privacy, a nice touch. We enjoyed hikes and beaches and farm tours (saltspring island cheeses especially). We went to Saltspring Vineyards and Saltspring Island Ales who were both open (even during snow) for tastings and purchased some souvenirs to take home. A very well rounded visit. We will definitely come back again.

Three-night stay at the Mt Erskine Rd house, Salt Spring Island

  • 4 of 5

An excellent and relaxing stay. Beautiful house and setting; peaceful and quiet; a few km from Ganges. Our party comprised two couples and could have a third couple but they had changes to their travel schedule. We chose this property for the same Thanksgiving Weekend get-away last year.

Amazing rental with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an incredible week at this house, including my Golden Retriever, Iggy! We found the house incredibly clean and Lorraine was extremely helpful if we had any questions! My Mom & I loved watching the hummingbirds and sunsets day in and day out! Salt Spring Islands is definitely a beautiful unique spot in Canada and I am very thankful I chose your property Lorraine! Thank you for making it special for us! 8-)

Beautiful and peaceful.

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.
