Salt Spring Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome to Touch the Sky B&B, Salt Spring Island, B.C.

The B&B consists of 2 private suite's. This site is dedicated only to the 'Western Suite'. Located on 5 sunny acres, nestled beside a forest near the end of a ridge. For info on The Ridge Suite check VRBO listing # 312676, or go to my website.

Sorry, there is no breakfast provided for the Western Suite, however I do provide organic fair trade coffee and a wide selection of teas. In the summer I can, if available, offer a selection of fresh herbs, usually sage and oregano.

Touch the Sky B&B is just a 5 minute drive south of Ganges, central to the whole island.

Come and relax, read, meditate on life, nourish your soul in my private luxury suite that has all of the urban sophistication you may be used to and more. Add a touch of Salt Spring charm and you have Touch the Sky B&B.

From here - explore the whole island! Drive or take the bus south to Fulford, go north to Ganges (5 minutes away), and beyond. Explore the Saturday Market, Galleries, Shops, Eateries and Park lands of Salt Spring Island. Use Touch the Sky to make day trips and explore other islands if you like too.

Here you'll enjoy peace and quiet, the use of your own full kitchen with an outdoor BBQ. Hang out and relax in the sun or shade, watch the dragonflies, hawks and swallows. Deer come and go day and night. Go for a walk along my roads, sit in the shade & relax. Find some peace of mind.

You are about to experience one of the most beautiful and relaxing places on Earth!

I want to make your stay a wonderful memory, every time.

Hello! My name is Lloyd Nicholson & I am the owner/operator of Touch The Sky B&B. Am about to start my 4th year in the business. I am interested & love people. Plus I am an excellent cook so my breakfasts are really wonderful.

Lloyd purchased this cabin in 2007

I love my home and Salt Spring Island, and this you'll understand when you are here. The Island is full of wonderful & interesting people, artists, musicians, skilled crafts people, etc.

My place is generally very quiet (except for the odd airplane). You'll get to see lots of deer usually, many types of seasonal birds etc. I am located very close to the heart of the island (the town of Ganges), so it is wonderful for being able to get around by car, or local transit. The suite is very spacious at 600 sq. feet, so plenty of room!

Great Weekend Away

We stayed at the Western Suite in August 2013 and had a great stay. Comfortably slept 5 adults. The suite was clean and well kept, and Lloyd was a great host. Especially liked the patio for BBQ dinner and relaxing in the evenings.

Great find!

The 4 of us stayed at the Western Suite for 2 nights in August. Lloyd made us feel welcome and gave us a detailed run-down of things to do on the island. He pretty much thought of everything we needed- flashlight, barbecue sauce, cream for coffee, books, etc. The cabin itself was perfect. The full kitchen comes with everything (fridge, oven, toaster, double sink, coffee maker, pots and pans, plates, glasses, utensils, can openers, oven mitts, tea towels...) The only thing missing was a microwave. The beds and bedding felt were of very good quality, and the cabin included so many special touches that made it feel like home. We really enjoyed the privacy and the view, and would definitely recommend this location for anyone going to Salt Spring Island!

We stayed at the Western Suite for 2 nights. Lloyd had food in the fridge for us, fruit on the counter and wonderfully comfortable beds. The suite has a beautiful view and a quiet, peaceful setting. We enjoyed the hot tub and the kindness of Lloyd who was so helpful with touring ideas, recommending places to eat and visit while on our trip which made our entire experience wonderful from the moment we arrived until we left for home. We highly recommend this suite.

Wonderful weekend on Salt Spring Island

My husband and two daughters (21 & 18) recently stayed at Lloyd's 'Western Suite' on his lovely property on Salt Spring. Lloyd met us with a fabulous basket of organic fruit, his favorite breads, eggs, bacon and more and introduced us to his lovingly decorated and cared for suite. We were on Salt Spring for a wedding so this was a perfect place for our home base. I would highly recommend Lloyd's property for a short or long stay. A five minute drive into the town of Ganges, fully equiped, sunny, quiet, and a helpful and friendly host! Perfect for families or couples alike. Thank you Lloyd!

Functional and Private - A Great Base for Exploring Salt Spring

Equipped with a full kitchen, a propane BBQ, comfortable queen bed and bunk beds for the kids the Western Suite is a very economical option. It even has a washer and dryer. It's rustic and charming, much like the owner :)

The Western Suite is highly recommended for a couple or for a family with young kids looking for a comfortable place to stay at the end of a busy day exploring Salt Spring. It's set up more for accommodation than as a place to "hang out". It is not suitable for people with mobility issues or those who don't like stairs. You need to climb about 20 steps to reach the entrance, but that makes the view from the front deck much better. The Ridge Suite, however, is well suited to those with mobility issues or an unusual phobia of stairs.

We stayed in the Western Suite for 5 days and in the Ridge Suite for 5 days (there's a separate review of the Ridge Suite). The view from the front deck of the Western Suite is wonderful, looking out over the islands and (on a clear day) to the mountains on the BC mainland. We enjoyed that view during several BBQ dinners while sitting on that deck!

This property is an honest 5 minute walk to Fulford-Ganges Road so with some planning it is possible to stay here without a car, as the community bus line runs along Fulford-Ganges Road. By car it is an honest 10 minute drive to downtown Ganges and 15 minutes to the Fulford ferry dock.

The Western Suite has good WiFi coverage thanks to changes that the owner made during our stay.

Our host, Lloyd, is a warm, remarkable man, ready to offer assistance or a recommendation for an outing, a restaurant, or a bottle of wine - all of which proved to be excellent! He obviously takes pride in his property and in ensuring that his guests feel at home.

The Saturday market which runs from mid spring to late October is a fantastic way to get to know what Salt Spring offers, and a must do for short stays as you get a good slice of the artists, crafts & food the island offers without having to drive all over the place.
