This bright, quiet cottage is situated on 6 wooded acres only minutes from Ganges, Salt Spring Island, BC. It is the perfect romantic get away for people who need a break from the fast pace of the city. It's only minutes from the famous Ganges Saturday market. 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.
Paradise doesn't get much better than this.
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.

A wonderful relaxing getaway before the arrival of our new little one. Thanks so
much Bruce and Kathe. We loved the tranquil cottage in the woods!
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!
We had an amazing time at Ahappinest! It was cozy and private, while still being perfectly situated to explore and experience all that Salt Spring has to offer. We especially enjoyed sitting by the wood burning stove at night. Looking forward to returning one day!
We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. We really appreciate how well equipt the cabin was and the little details like good knives, lovely sheets and the lounging chairs on the porch. We thoroughly enjoyed all that Salt Spring Island had to offer and the cabin was a perfect oasis in the trees.
The cabin was perfect for our little getaway and Bruce was wonderful with accommodating some scheduling changes. Salt Spring is always a treat and we will for sure return to the happy nest when we can!
Lovely rustic cabin. The only down side was the squawking birds (not sure what type) from the farm across the street....no fault of the owners of the cabin....but certainly spoiled the peaceful vibe.
I absolutely loved my solo stay in this cozy little cabin and it was the perfect place to retreat to on my first visit to Salt Spring. It was tucked away far enough from town that I felt like I was in nature but it was still only a quick drive down to Ganges (less than 5 minutes). I met with the owner as I checked in but my privacy was respected for the duration of my stay. The cabin was a tiny bit more rustic than I expected from the photos but that made me love it even more. The bed was extremely comfortable as other guests have mentioned and it definitely allowed me a good night's rest. Very soft. I was delighted that on both of the mornings, multiple deer nibbled in front of the big windows and I was constantly hearing birds and the sounds of nature. The sun hits the deck perfectly in the afternoon.
It is a few minute drive to the Mt. Maxwell which I would recommend for some amazing views (fairly steep road with deep potholes in order to get up though so be prepared).
I would fully recommend this getaway spot to couples looking for some alone time or anyone who needs a break from the bustle of life. I stayed for two nights but I felt like it wasn't quite long enough. I would love to come back! Terrific hospitality. I miss the HappiNest already!
