About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

Enjoy your Salt Spring Island vacation in the privacy and serenity of our beautiful, modern, self-contained cottage nestled in the woods. We are located on the north end of the island approximately 10 minutes north of Ganges.
The cottage is fully stocked with linens, towels, full kitchen, staple food items, washer and dryer, gas BBQ, woodstove and much more!
It is approximately 800 sq ft. and has a full eat-in kitchen with new appliances including dishwasher, fridge, stove, toaster, coffee maker, and microwave.
Relax in the comfortable living room equipped with a large flat screen TV, WiFi, Internet, DVD player, and DVD library.
Relax in the large private bedroom with a comfortable queen bed or enjoy the open loft with second queen bed. The loft also has a twin bed. The cottage sleeps five people comfortably.
Enjoy a soak in the bathtub or a shower in the full and modern bathroom.
The cottage is full of light with vaulted ceilings and skylights. The floors are heated concrete throughout in chilly weather or enjoy the warmth and comfort of a fire in the wood stove.
Children are welcome and pets are considered on an individual basis ($50 pet fee), so please contact us if you would like to bring your pet!
There are two large decks with a propane BBQ and chairs and table to enjoy the outdoors. Enjoy grilling, relaxing, or observing nature in the large, beautifully landscaped yard.

Previous reviews from VRBO:
"We absolutely adored our weekend stay at Bird's Hill Cottage. The silence, surrounded by nature, close to trails and easy access to other parts of the island. The cottage was immaculate and set up with everything we needed. The perfect amount of cozy during a weekend getaway from Vancouver. We cannot wait to stay here again! ".....

"We greatly enjoyed out stay at Birds' Hill Cottage. We're a group of 4 adults and 1 dog. The cottage was just the right size. The pictures don't do it justice, it's even cuter in person. It was extremely quiet all the time, we slept so well. There are many hiking/running trails that you can walk to just down the road. We ran every morning from the cabin on beautiful, forest trails. We especially enjoyed the Channel Ridge Trails, which you can access easily from the cabin. We enjoyed walking on gorgeous beaches, exploring the local farms---especially Sunset Farm, and hiking up Mt. Maxwell for great views. Ruckle Park on the south end of the island was a real gem. It's about 45 minute drive from the cabin. The main town of Ganges is a quick 20 minute drive. We had a great four night stay. I would definitely recommend this cabin on Salt Spring to family and friends.".....

"We - being two couples - stayed at the Bird's Hill cottage over the long weekend, for a quiet retreat and get away. And it was exactly that. The northern portion of Saltspring is very quiet, so being on a side street the cottage was especially serene. Inside, the cottage is amazing. Polished concrete floors and counters give it a very modern feel contrasted with the exposed wood features and cleanly painted white walls. Everything is comfortable (chairs and beds) so it makes it easy to sink in and mellow out. Great stay, I highly recommend staying here.".....

"This was a great place to stay: a newly-built and very thoughtfully designed cabin/house, in a quiet spot. Very private and well-equipped. Saltspring Island is a beautiful place, and a foodie's heaven. I highly recommend this cottage."
