About Greg Sumner

Owned mutually by 4 siblings who live in four different cities and 2 countries- but rest assured, we'll be there for all your needs!

Greg Sumner purchased this house in 1982

Why Greg Sumner chose Salt Spring Island

Our parents built this charming home for their retirement and upon their passing we all had such pleasant times and memories of Salt Spring that we decided we should allow others to experience the unique warmth and rest of Allison (our dear mother) House as it became known.

We have kept the name in her honor.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance (2 miles) or a short car trip from the largest village (Ganges) on the island.

The Perfect Family Reunion holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My two brothers, their wives, my sister, and my fiance enjoyed our first winter holiday together in many years and were able to spend a memorable 5 days on Salt Spring staying at this beautiful home up on the hill. The view of the inlet was spectacular, the bedrooms were perfect for three couples and the fourth room worked for the one single person. We loved cooking in the spacious and well equipped kitchen, and the living room was cozy and perfect for just hanging out together. The perfect getaway for a family reunion or group of friends.

Allison House Retreat for 4 fast friends

  • 4 of 5

Allison House provided a comfortable setting with a fabulous view from every room in the house. Kitchen, Living Room, and Master Bedroom were especially magnificent.

What added to the attraction for me was the family story and photo album that detailed the building of the home on this magnificent property. The mother designed the home and the father built it from scratch with the timber from the forest. The feat of that effort was remarkable!

The fireplace and furniture arrangement in the living room offered the most cozy chat space. The kitchen was ideal for cooking and ocean view while dining in this spacious area.

The sibling owners were responsive to all requests.

My only item kept this rating from the category of EXCELLENT is the need for a standardized shower in the bathroom on the second level.

I would vacation at Allison House again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. It warms our hearts to see people enjoy the property as much as we as family do. Our parents would indeed be proud that their dream home blesses so many as a legacy. In regards to the 2nd floor bathroom (partial) shower- it's been something that we have wrestled without any clear solution. The sloping roof prohibits anything other than the current arrangement which of course is uncomfortable for taller individuals. It is one of the very few design flaws our loving mother made in the house and I guess we have to grin and bear it! (She should have probably put the bathroom where the small third bedroom is now.) Best, Murray, Greg, Sharon & Colleen

Beautiful weekend at a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I were staying on Saltspring Island for a wedding. This was the perfect location for us, with a beautiful kitchen and dining area for group brunch, a great living area to read and drink tea and spacious, private bedrooms. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The views were spectacular from every window, such a relaxing place!!

The Perfect Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

We're just back from Alison House and I don't think any review can capture the magic of our visit. The large deck with a view of the Ganges Harbour was our hangout. I've lived on the coast for 15 years and couldn't get enough of it. One night we stayed out until 2:30 am as we didn't want to go in. The kitchen was a fabulous space to prepare meals for our group of 8 - then out to the deck again.

If you are adventurous and extremely fit, my son did the bike ride up to the house from the main Ganges Road.

We were treated to a deer and her fawn out for their evening forage, floatplanes, boats, eagles.....it was a fabulous trip and we hope to be back with another group some day.

The island is approx. 22 miles long and 4-5 miles wide and named after the salt water springs at the islands' north end. Steeped in history, the ambiance is much like an English countryside with many local famous artists and skilled craftspeople holding open studio tours. A renowned local farmer's and craft market (not to be missed) every Saturday. Local vineyard tours & wine tasting as well as amazing goat cheeses and soap works- the list is endless!

The locals are almost too friendly!
