This home has something for everyone, perfect for a family vacation, romantic getaway, artists and bird watchers of all ages! We even have bee hives that we are happy to show you and an extensive area where we grow our own food year round, truly an Eco-sustainable experience. Artists love the amazing back drop of layers of lush green mountain and water views. Birders are thrilled about the eagles nest that you can see right from the deck across the water.
We are located on the quiet tidal inlet of Booth Canal. Decorated with a French country flare, and a touch of shabby chic, you will find everything you need is here for a relaxing getaway including 400 square feet of private decking with a spectacular south facing view. Truly a home away from home.
A rare estuary, this tidal inlet has some of the best bird watching Salt Spring Island has to offer including eagles, turkey vultures, hawks, blue heron, king fishers, osprey and many more birds. The little quail make this yard their home and are truly entertaining. The eagles perch in the tree in front of the cottage and their nest is visible from the deck with binoculars.
Enjoy the private cedar dock just steps from the doorway and warm tidal swims in the summer. Kayaking is awesome year round and we provide the double kayak with life jackets (two).
A large country bathroom with a compact Bosch washer and dryer ensure you will have more time to play!
Sink into the luxurious king bed, topped with a heavenly 4' featherbed and 500 thread count percale sheets. All the beds are cozy and warm with locally made wool duvets and crisp cotton sheets. Cotton blankets are also available for those hot summer nights.
During the evening curl up to the wood stove with a book or enjoy a hot tub while gazing at the stars
This cottage is perfect for a sabbatical, artists retreat, or quiet writer's getaway. Super for a family holiday in the summer months or a romantic getaway for those special weekends.
