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.

We live next to the cottage property. we love it here! I am a registered massage therapist and my partner is an investment advisor. We strive to practice sustainability, growing our own food and buying locally. We garden on our lot and the cottage upper lot where the sun reaches the property all day. We have enjoy our egg laying chickens, bunnies, honey bee hives, two border collies and two wonderful cats. Kids love helping us to collect the eggs in the morning.
We are fairly active taking advantage of the nearby hiking trails and swim almost every day in the summertime.
We love meeting new guests and enjoy sharing what this great island has to offer including the amazing artisans and all our favourite restaurants.

This adorable seasonal cottage is a tidal waterfront accommodation located on the sunny tidal inlet of Booth Canal.
Hiking trails are minutes away and the seaside walks and shell searching await you. There is a safe walking path along the main road to the village which is about a 20 minute walk.
The natural setting of the cottage is eco-friendly with many wild flowers and over grown grasses providing a natural sanctuary for the local habitat. Quail nest in the long grasses and enjoy the fat seed heads that we allow to ripen and self-sow. We even have a 'bug hotel' where we pile rocks and wood that are allowed to naturally break down thus providing a home for local snakes and spiders, which are all beneficial to the garden. The Garter snakes enjoy the rustic grasses too and keep the balance and biodiversity of the property intact
The top of the property closest to the road is used to grow year round vegetables helping us toward our goal of sustainability. We even have a honey bee hive in the upper corner of the property (well away from walkways and drive) aiding in the pollination of the flowers, fruits and vegetables, and of course providing us with beautiful honey! Heritage hens graze on the grass and peck at grass and are really entertaining. They always come and greet the new guests.
When tides are high a kayak is definitely in order. We provide a two seater kayak complete with life jackets and paddles. Toodle around the peaceful canal and quietly watch the wildlife, or venture out past the inlet and explore Baker beach where you can beach comb and enjoy salty swims.
Relaxing on the new cedar dock just steps from the cottage is also a great way to see the birds. During the summer months the heron, turkey vultures, osprey, and the king fishers return to nest and feed. We have a pair of eagles that perch in front of the cottage and nest across the inlet (the nest can be seen with a pair of binoculars from the deck).
