About the property

This bright, quiet cottage is situated on 6 wooded acres only minutes from Ganges, Salt Spring Island, BC.

A quick ride up to Mount Maxwell brings you to the best views on the Southern Gulf Islands. Like yoga? Well, we are a quick walk down a country road to the Salt Spring Island Yoga Centre.

The owners are a certified Acupuncturist and an advanced Rolfer. We'll bring the treatments to you.

About The Owner

We moved to the island to get closer to nature and raise our family. We want to share Salt Spring with others. What drew us here will probably draw you too: the artists, the alternative lifestyle, the peacefulness, the beauty, the healing, the friendliness. Salt Spring has it all and is arguably the nicest place to live in Canada. Salt Spring is a natural fit for us. We are both healers and this is a healing place. Our healing techniques make a lot more sense right up close to nature. Enjoy any one of our specialties; Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy, Rolfing, private yoga or the Alexander Technique.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

A cozy cottage in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is clean and well appointed! We were very comfortablw during our stay. The owners obviously take pride in their property and maintain it well. I think we had unusually hot weather while we were visiting, but it would have been nice if the doors had screens on them - it would have helped cool the cottage down.

Cabin in the woods...cute but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Nice furninishings, bed covers, but needs painting, even for "rustic" look, around windows, and doors, then would feel fresher. Paper linings inside cupboards, new plates, a few more cups, clean sponges. Also, the deck needs re finishing, it is scruffy and not inviting. We never met our hosts but they were very helpful with any questions we had. I think, in terms of value for price paid, it falls a little short.

Such a peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had three nights in Happinest, and loved every minute. The hosts were discreet but ready to help whenever needed, and the sense of privacy and quiet were absolute. Definitely a great place for a couple: romantic, simple to manage and close to lots of nice things.

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came to Salt Spring for our honeymoon, and we couldn't have been any happier with the cabin and our interactions with our hosts. The rustic cabin still boasts a top notch little kitchen with all of the necessary cookware and utensils, nice furniture and a fantastic soaker tub. There are electric baseboard heaters, and plenty of chopped firewood to keep a fire going in the wood stove.

We were given plenty of space and privacy, which we wanted, but our hosts immediately responded to any questions and offered to help with anything we needed.

We will absolutely come back for a long weekend in the future!
