About the property

This idyllic cabin is set on a five acre property overlooking the Ganges Inlet. With blackberry bushes and fruit trees available for picking you are able to enjoy bounty from the property when in season.

A spacious deck runs along the front of the cabin providing the ideal location for outdoor meals no matter the weather thanks to the roof with several skylights.

Another deck overhangs the slope at the front of the property providing the perfect place for a coffee, if one of the multiple hammocks available are all taken.

If you enjoy outdoor cooking you can enjoy cooking over an open fire, or a gas BBQ.

Huge arbutus trees with their green and rust bark, firs and cedars populate the property, providing shade on a hot summers day.

This is primarily a summer cabin, though it can also be a cosy get-away in the winter - with a small wood stove and base board heaters. There is a long unpaved drive-way - tricky to negotiate without a 4 wheel drive if it should snow. The water has also been known to freeze if temperatures plummet well below zero for an extended period. Mostly our winter weather is quite mild - but there are some risks in more severe weather.

This cabin is not suitable for frail elderly, those intolerant of the odd visiting spider, or those who do not have sense of adventure and enjoyment of the outdoors.

Price seen on the site listing is in US dollars. The quote sent will be in Canadian dollars. Please note there is an additional cleaning fee per visit.

About Juliette Eberhard

Immigrants from South Africa, the owners live in nearby Mill Bay - and enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle - gardening, hiking and kayaking. Saltspring provides a prefect getaway from busy professional lives - to read, reflect, and get away from electronic media and demands of the 'real world'.

Juliette Eberhard purchased this cabin in 1987

Why Juliette Eberhard chose British Columbia Gulf Islands

When we first visited this property the long and winding driveway took us unexpectedly onto a ridge where we fell in love with the view, the spaciousness and the sense of being 'somewhere else' far away from it all.

What makes this cabin unique

Listening to the sounds of neighboring sheep and roosters complete the rural ambiance as you swing in the hammock reading a favourite book, overlooking the fantastic view.

Beautiful and rustic snowy stay

  • 4 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely time in the cabin over a snowy weekend. The pipes had frozen, so we didn't have running water but it only added to the cosy and rustic environment. The cabin is beautifully situated, with a stunning view and secluded feeling. It was clean and well-maintained and we enjoyed lovely evenings by the fire.

We would definitely like to go back to Galilee in the summer time, it was fantastic!

Rustic and away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here at this lovely little cabin. There were five adults there for a weekend. It was a bit squishy but it made the perfect getaway for our family. A weekend is never long enough here though. It's beautiful here in winter as well as summer. The cabin is rustic, but there's everything you need for a getaway to the peace and quiet. The views are spectacular! We will be back next year!

Cozy cabin with a view

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was easy to find, not too far from Ganges and central to lots of Salt Spring Island attractions.

The view is lovely, and nice that you can lay in the loft bed and enjoy the same view out the windows. The picnic table was enjoyable and we also made use of sitting at the table on the covered porch while it was raining. Beautiful arbutus and flowering bushes on the property, we saw a few nice birds and a deer was cruising around the yard in the evening. :) We cooked dinner on the stovetop and the kitchen was decently outfitted (though may want to bring your own knife if you care about it being sharp).

We didn't make use of the hammocks as they were not set up, and it was not entirely clear how to set them up or where they would go. Plus I think I'd be nervous to lay in a hammock that I had set up myself!

Another note, the ladder to the loft is less than ideal. I needed assistance from my partner to get up and down, even in the middle of the night! Replacing the doweling with 2x4s or some other flat boards (or at the very least making it so the doweling doesn't spin when you put your foot on it!), angling the ladder slightly away from the wall rather than slightly toward the wall, having a cut-out at the top rather than an overhanging lip, and/or having some hand-holds to grab on to at the top of the ladder would all be possible ways to make it safer to use. Hopefully one or a few of these can be implemented.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We will see what we can do re the ladder. There is a fold out hide-a-bed on the main floor for anyone who has difficulty negotiating the ladder. It is a small space so would be difficult to angle the ladder - but we could certainly try to change the rungs.
