ORCHARD CABIN - A COZY CABIN IN A PEACEFUL ORCHARD CLOSE TO GANGES.

Salt Spring Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Orchard Cabin on Salt Spring Island is the perfect private retreat for artists, writers, poets, or musicians. It is also a great getaway for a romantic honeymoon or anniversary. Or bring the kids and the dog!

Peace and quiet surrounds you. Waken to the songbirds' serenade. Enjoy your breakfast on the deck with your freshly brewed coffee or tea.  Delight in  some of Salt Spring's fine locally prepared  cheese or fruit preserves, wholesome breads and farm fresh eggs.

Then make your way into Ganges Village to check out ArtCraft and  to browse the local shops and galleries.  Saturday morning is when Salt Spring hosts the famous Salt Spring Market. Be sure to treat yourself to lunch at one of the many unique restaurants and cafes. Don't forget to try some gelato at Harlan's!

Grace Point Square is where you will find Lyman Whitaker's Windsculptures. These mesmerizing works of art are available in Canada exclusively through Matt at Steffich Fine Art in Grace Point.

If adventure is on your mind, check out fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, whale watching, biking, or hiking. Take a Studio Tour. Go on a boat tour or dinner cruise. Explore Salt Spring's history or just relax at one of the many beaches, lakes and parks.

On your way back to the cabin, pick up some fresh seafood at The Fishery or some crab at Centennial dock. Add to this some fresh produce from the Salt Spring Market and a bottle of wine from one of the local vineyards to make a delicious island meal. Then bask in the balmy warmth of a summer evening on Salt Spring Island.

Have a fabulous vacation!

About Christine Steffich

Matt and I are long time islanders. Matt has lived on Salt Spring for 20 years after having vacationed here every summer since 1968. I have lived here for most of my life. My family roots go back to the 1930's and 40's when my great-grandparents farmed on the north end of the island, boating their produce around the 'Hook' to Ganges every Saturday during the summer - the original Salt Spring Farmer's Market!

We are proud parents of 2 fantastic boys and loving owners of 2 Golden Retrievers. Matt is the owner of Steffich Fine Art and I am the pharmacy manager at Downtown Pharmasave.

Matt and I have traveled extensively to Australia, Mexico, and the USA, and we have spent many vacations exploring BC and Vancouver Island. Having stayed in a wide variety of accommodations we realized that simple and relaxed, private and convenient, comfortable and casual were the most appealing features of our vacation accommodations.

As dog people, we really appreciate being able to travel with the dogs. They are an important part of our family and traveling without them would be like leaving the kids at home!

Christine Steffich purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Christine Steffich chose Salt Spring Island

In 2010 we made a decision to share our cabin as a vacation rental so others could come and discover the magic that is Salt Spring Island.

The cabin was just a sleeping cabin when we bought the house in 2002. Our friend, Jeremiah Hart, moved into the cabin soon after and traded rent for renovations. Jeremiah lived in the cabin for 5 years and, with his masterful use of space and natural materials, transformed it into a lovely little self-contained cabin that is comfortable summer and winter. The main feature is the deck situated under a large apple tree where you can relax in the peace and quiet of the backyard orchard.

What makes this cottage unique

The cabin is a short walk to shopping and restaurants in Ganges. Dog walking and hiking trails are easily accessed just steps from the cabin. Wine tours, boat cruises, parks, scenic drives, swimming lakes and beaches are a short drive away.

cute and cozy

  • 4 of 5
We loved our weekend at the little orchard cottage!! The cozy loft was perfect for sunny afternoon naps, and he small deck was great for coffee in the morning and grilling dinner at night.
Our hosts had to be away the day of our arrival but arranged for a friend to make sure we were taken care of.
Sure, we complained a little on the walk up the hill from Ganges, but it was actually very convenient to get back and forth to town without a car.

Simply Wonderful

My sister, daughter & I had a fabulous stay at the cabin. It was so cozy and homey. My daughter was so excited about the loft bed and she was not disappointed. The cabin is quiet and in the perfect location. Short walk into town to enjoy the Saturday Market which was fabulous.
Thank you again for a wonderful weekend on Salt Spring.

Our trip to Saltspring was made even more wonderful by staying in this lovely cabin. Matt was incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our visit. The cabin itself is very cosy and has a great unique style to it. Would definitely like to return at some point. Thanks for providing a great place to stay!
