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.
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
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.
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.
What a wonderful property! Beautiful views and cozy space. Just what we needed!
We had a super second visit to this cottage, and I imagine it wont be our last! Thanks for everything!
This cabin was perfect for my sister, her cat and I. We kept saying to each other what a beautiful place it was, and a perfect size! Loved the skylights in the deck. It made enjoying the outdoors all the better as it was raining almost constantly while we were there!
We drove up the driveway to the cottage around 5 p.m. and even in the partial dusk you could still see the incredible view. We were actually awestruck that this is where we would be spending 3 days. We didn't care if it was a tent we were staying in! The weekend we were there was wet and rainy but that did not stop us from having an awesome time.
The cabin is very rustic as a lot of other reviewers have said. There is no phone, tv or internet but that is GOOD!!! We all have that too much in our lives - take a break!! What you have is the most incredible silence you can imagine. I have not been in that much silence in years and it felt very good. The shower was warm and with good pressure as has been said. The adirondack chairs were perfect to sit on by the fire pit after dinner and there was plenty of wood to use.
We went to Saltspring Island Brewery and were treated very well. Even though the staff person was on his own, (someone had called in sick), he still did a very good job handling all the people and keeping the mood going. All the beers we tasted were very good.
I would recommend this cabin but it does take effort to climb the ladder to get up to the loft bed. There of course is the hide a bed on the main floor but we were sure glad we could get up the ladder because we loved that bed! It was so comfortable and the window right beside the bed opened wide to let in beautiful fresh air - and once again - NO noise!
Beautiful location. Great view. Perfect low key getaway. Very Accommodating. Thank you!
We had a phenomenal stay. Everything was even nicer than advertised. Great place to get away for the weekend. Juliette was very helpful in sorting everything out.
