Overview

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

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.

Our Summer Haven

  • 5 of 5

We always love spending a week of our summer...wish it was more...at this charming little cabin. You can sip your coffee in the morning and watch and listen to the Island come awake as you look down on Ganges Harbour. We love watching the birds and lazing in the Adirondack chairs, playing the games and puzzles provided at the cabin. While their is no oven, there is a stovetop and the grill for preparing meals with all the lovely fresh produce and breads you can purchase on the Island and then dining al fresco with that beautiful view. The cabin in summer is a good fit for our family of three as the covered deck adds another room. While on Saltspring we always enjoy kayaking, hiking and visiting our favourite spots...especially the wineries and Wild Cider, as well the Salt Spring Bread Lady. Highly advise spending your day at the shops around Ganges mid week when it is much quieter and, while the Saturday Market is a requisite and worthy venture, head out EARLY...the parking chaos and crowds make it unbearable much past 10am. The Tuesday market is much much smaller but also more relaxing. Enjoy! We always do. :)

New Age Rustic - Quiet, Secluded, View

  • 5 of 5

This space is perfect for a youthful (at least in spirit)couple or a young family looking for a quiet and mildly rustic Nirvana. The view and spirit of the space is refreshing and uplifting. A small "cabin" with a sleeping loft, kitchen, sofa, firepit, outside picnic table, hammocks, and VIEWS! If the weather is predicted to be good, I'd even suggest a guest may bring what they'd like for outside sleeping on the deck. Close to town too! The driveway was our favorite part of our stay.

Rustic and secluded

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to this cabin. It's perfectly located overlooking the ocean. It's quiet and secluded and a perfect place to get away from it all. If you are looking for luxury, this isn't it, but it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bed in the loft is comfy with a great view, and although this might not be easy for everyone to access there is also a comfortable pull out sofa bed on the main level. There's a great covered deck for BBQing on, and a fire pit for those evenings sitting under the stars. We love this place.

a very nice spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a few nights and found it suited our needs perfectly. Nicely situated with a great view and a sense of real solitude, yet close to town. Very cozy, made for pure relaxation, rustic with wood stove and no interference from the grid.
