Eagle View Cottage is run by permanent long term residents of salt spring island. We live on the property and are here to assist you with your holiday needs.
If you are looking for a country experience but close to town, this is the place for you. We now have a new great safe walking path that takes you to the quaint village of Ganges in 30 minutes, or choose to drive a short 2 minutes. If you love birds, stunning mountain views, honey bees, chickens, and the idea of sustainability, you will love the cottage. We are beekeepers and are happy to show you our honeybee hives on the property. We also love our egg layers who happily roam about the property. The wild quail nest in the long grasses, and this year we are excited to announce that the eagles are nesting in the tree right across from the cottage, pretty cool! We hope that they have a successful hatching this year.
Eagle View Cottage is perfect for a family vacation or romantic getaway. Guests love the hot tub and gazing at the stars with a glass of wine.
Artists love the amazing back drop of layers of lush green mountain and water views. We are happy to show you our bee hives and extensive gardens where we grow our own food, and happy to allow the children to collect eggs. Truly an eco-sustainable experience!
We are located on the quiet tidal inlet of Booth Canal. The tide comes in twice a day and if sometimes will cooperate with a midday kayak or swim. Sandy Beaches are close by and we can help you find the perfect one to spend the day. Hiking trails are plentiful and we provide a book for you to explore these as well.
The cottage is 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, and 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.
Enjoy the new 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) at no extra charge.
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
The quaint town of Ganges is a short 3 minute drive. While still in the country you close to all amenities including our hospital and clinics.
The cottage is run by us, permanent saltspring residents, who reside on the property, we are happy to share stories of our bee keeping and eagle watching with you. Ask us all about our organic gardening too!
