Perched atop a sun-drenched bluff, spectacular ocean views await you at this waterfront home. Watch the eagles soar and unwind to the sights and sounds of seaside life. Enjoy the breathtaking sunsets from the substantial deck that overlooks the ocean vista and encourages relaxation.

A spacious open plan invites your comfort at this well-appointed, self-contained cottage. Down duvets and luxurious linens adorn the king and queen size beds in this 2 bed, 2 bath home. Soak away your worries in the jetted bath or curl up in front of the propane fireplace. Preparing meals are a pleasure in the skylit kitchen or on the cliffside BBQ. Nearby farmstands are fantastic for seasonal fruits and vegetables or locally raised meats, as well as fresh eggs.

Arbutus, mossy knolls and lush salal meet the sea cliffs in this private setting within walking distance to nearby trails, beaches, neighborhood restaurant and country store. A quick 10 minute drive to Ganges and you will find a wide selection of restaurants, stores, galleries and local markets. There is always plenty to fill your days from hiking, beachcombing and kayaking to pampering yourself with a spa treatment or spoiling yourself in the unique shops and artisan studios.

Salt Spring is the largest of the Gulf Islands and is located between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia. It is serviced by 3 ferry terminals and 3 float plane companies. Boating to the island is also a popular option. Bent Tree is conveniently located close to the bus route and car rentals are available on-island.

Come and enjoy the best of Salt Spring Island with our year-round mild climate. We look forward to welcoming you at Bent Tree Waterfront Cottage.

Peaceful setting in the midst of nature

  • 5 of 5

Great location. While we were sitting on the deck we saw deer, a peacock, seals, bald eagle. Inside extras (about 250 DVDs, tons of spices/condiments) made it easy to settle in.

Expansive view

First time to Salt Spring Island and really enjoyed it. This cottage was well suited to exploring and loved watching the Crofton ferry travel back and forth. Very clean and comfortable bed - lots of room for my husband and myself. I was expecting the worst, weather wise, but we lucked out and it didn't rain. The deck is great and would be wonderful in the summer. We certainly appreciated the privacy. Had the BEST roasted yam quesadilla at the Tree House Cafe in Ganges. Jesse was very friendly and responded quickly to everything.

Wow. The view from the deck is incredible. Great location. Found everything we needed to make our stay on Salt Spring very enjoyable. Loved curling up by the fireplace when there was a chill in the air. Thanks for a wonderful relaxing 5 days

Beautiful view; comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two wonderful weeks in this clean, comfortable cottage. Lots of space, cozy fireplace, huge deck, covenient grill, comfortable furnishings. It was perfect for our needs and easily accommodated two couples. And the view of Vesuvius Bay, ever-changing as the mists and sunshine came and went was priceless! Jesse was a perfect host, taking care of anything that came up, promptly. This was a perfect location from which to explore Salt Spring Island. Don't miss a walk in nearby Duck Creek Park....mystical and gorgeous trails alongside waterfalls and pools.

My husband, daughter and I would like to offer our sincerest thanks to Jesse and Yvonne for our wonderful Thanksgiving reunion and retreat at Bent Tree Cottage. It was a perfect respite holiday from our busy lives!

The cottage itself is roomy and beautifully appointed -- both bedrooms quiet and private with comfortable beds and ample closet and storage space; kitchen well-stocked with food, dishes and appliances; living room and dining area both designed for comfort, conversation and relaxation with leather couches, a warm gas fireplace, large-screen TV, and a generous dining area. Fascinating artwork adorns the walls in every room. Bent Tree is truly a reader's paradise -- well-stocked book shelves, and many private nooks both indoors and outside for reading and contemplation.

And the view! Endlessly fascinating and ever changing, whatever the weather. We had rain, wind, fog and brilliant sun during our stay and never tired of watching the play of wind upon the water, and Vancouver Island across the channel.

Our host was most helpful and always responded promptly to our questions. As well, there were many tourist guidebooks, maps and suggestions for activities and dining on the bookshelves in the cottage.

Bent Tree offers such beauty, peace and restoration to visitors -- we will definitely be back. Thanks again, Jesse and Yvonne!

lovely,lovely,lovely view

  • 3 of 5

A modest 50 year old cottage with comfortable bed rooms and baths. Very grand. Shy of dishwasher but I got my finger nails clean. The only laundromat closed in Ganges which was bad luck. Hope Jesse's play was a success. We visited in late September and weather was gorgeous. Plan to return. Raymond Irwin. Sacramento, Cal

Terrific view....water view, ferry coming and going and sunsets. grand.
