Having had many cottage holidays, the proprietors have learned from experience what works and what doesn't. They have endeavoured to provide their ideal vacation rental and, judging from the comments in the Visitors' Book, they have certainly succeeded.

Kim purchased this cottage in 2005

This property is well situated, being just 5 mins from the markets and shopping center in Ganges yet sited within beautiful, rolling, peaceful countryside. The best of both worlds!

An 'away from it all' experience in the heart of the country. Peaceful, tranquil and private. The long grasses and wildflowers, rarely seen in the city, are in abundance here along with nesting birds, owls, rabbits, deers, frogs, etc.

Cottage of tranquility certainly lived up to its name. We had 5 nights in this clean and comfortable cottage. We had been travelling for 7 wks and the time here allowed us to unwind, reflect and enjoy our surroundings. The eagles constantly had us in awe, the goat and sheep entertained us and Philip and Kim were very welcoming. The cottage was set on the hill of a hobby farm and was very private. We loved Salt Spring Island and enjoyed the arts and craft, market and lovely places to eat out at.

Owner's Response: Yes this is the perfect place to unwind with eagles, deer and our own pet goat, sheep and chickens to entertain you! You can easily enjoy all that Salt Spring has to offer from this location as it is only a 5 minute drive to the centre, Ganges. Many thanks to Pam for this helpful review.

My sister and I spent 3 days at the Cottage of Tranquility and we agree wholeheartedly that this is a place for peace and quiet. The cottage is very bright and spacious and the front deck looks down to the meadows below. There is a BBQ and a welcome basket of goodies are provided to help you settle in. The location is reasonably close to Ganges and the Long Harbour ferry terminal. The hosts, Philip and Kim, are very kind and helped us out after a bike accident on our first day. All in all, a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Carol for providing this review and highlighting the peace and quiet to be found at the Cottage of Tranquility. Our guests really appreciate the cottage design which allows lots of natural light and gives a feeling of spaciousness. Another plus is the large, covered deck which is perfect for lounging and BBQs with a wonderful view of the meadows. Thanks again Carol!

Quite Romantic Getaway

What a gorgeous little cottage!

This cottage pretty much sums up the type of experience you can expect from the whole island of Salt Spring.

The cottage it self, is on the small side. An L shaped kitchen, living room, dinning room combo. Down a small hall way you have the one bedroom across from the one 4 piece (tub shower combo) bathroom. Everything was clean and working, but nothing fancy like a high end hotel. Simple and clean, just what I expected. The kitchen has more then enough utensils to stay in and cook all of your meals. The welcome basket the owners leave (much appreciated) is just a small sampling of the fresh organic food and produce readily available everywhere on the island. The cabin is decorated with some beautiful and informative wall hangings on the history of the island, with some maps of some great hiking trails!

Located high up on a hill behind the owners house and studio the cottage is PRIVATE PRIVATE PRIVATE! Having stayed multiple times at various rentals on the island, this place is perfectly tucked away behind some bushes high away from any neighbours or people. The HOTTUB! (can you tell how awesome this was) is completely private with a tree overtop and 8 foot hedges on all sides. Having visited in February this was a perfect location relax in at the end of the day with a glass of wine staring up at the stars. A window opens to the cabin right next door to play some music out of while relaxing. Out the rear of the cabin is a small trail leading down to the creek in the back, a great place to walk with your morning coffee. The two sheep and many chickens on the property were adorable. We were able to feed Molly and her friend some fresh fruit before we left - they ate it right out of our hands!

The cabin is only a short 20 minute walk from the town of Ganges. Granted, you do have some hills to trek to get there but that is pretty much expected anywhere on the island. Ganges is where pretty much everything happens on the island - restaurants, music, hiking trails - they all start and end around the town.

The website on this cabin truly does not do it justice - it's setting and privacy are far more serene and beautiful.

I would recommend this rental to any romantic couple or pair of friends. It might be a little to small for a family with children or multiple couples, although they do have a pull out bed.

While Mount Maxwell is a beautiful drive, if your up to is physically, hike Mount Erskine - MUCH better views/hike!!!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Matt for highlighting the PRIVACY of this cottage. It is situated at the other end of our 5-acre property and is not near to or overlooked by any other property. You can dine on the large outdoor deck or soak in the hot tub and feel completely at ease. This is your own PRIVATE space with trails directly from your front door. This is the country yet we are within walking distance of Ganges. Our sheep are hand-reared - they love to be petted and given treats. You can also feed the chickens and enjoy some of their delicious, fresh, free-range eggs.
