Ganges Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Private cabin with 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, kitchenette, deck - sleeps 2.

The Gallery Cabin, a 100 year-old log cabin, lovingly refurbished with a new bathroom and kitchenette. Perfect for singles or couples the 240 square foot cabin has a brand new queen size bed, kitchen nook with sink, microwave, kettle, toaster, toaster oven and fridge, and a bathroom with shower and towel warming rack. Breakfast makings are provided: home-made granola, jam, milk, juice, eggs, butter, bread, yoghurt, fruit and coffee and teas. A private deck soaks up the afternoon sun with a table, chairs and BBQ.

The Gallery Cabin is on the 2 1/2 acre property of Celia Duthie & Nicholas Hunt - with 1 other rental (Gallery B&B) a fine art gallery and a sculpture park. It is surrounded by gardens and forest views.

The cabin is a short walk from the nearby village Ganges, Churchill beach, and across the street from the prestigious Hastings House Hotel. There is a public bus service from the ferry terminals so guests can (if they wish) come to the island without a car and enjoy the island by foot, bus, kayak or rental scooter.

Salt Spring Island has an embarrassment of riches in art and music with many galleries, studios, and music venues. The Saturday Market, with spectacular farm produce, cheeses, and crafts, is a perennial favorite.

A good time to come to the island is often the off season, when the almost always temperate weather is fine for golfing, biking, walking, exploring the island or taking one of many excellent art and craft courses offered throughout the year.

About Celia Duthie

My husband Nicholas Hunt and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have 2 children and 3 cats. Much of our life was spent in the book business in Vancouver; now as well as the B&B we have a gallery of fine and landscape art. We love to cook, eat, walk, read, garden and play bridge.

Celia Duthie purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Celia Duthie chose Salt Spring Island

We chose our location because it is a very pretty pastoral property surrounded by forests and our house is a lovely hand-built cottage. The proximity to Ganges, Churchill Beach and many of the island amenities was another factor in our choice.

What makes this cabin unique

Visitors will enjoy the historical experience of the 100 year-old cabin and appreciate the art and studio furniture in the cabin. They can also enjoy the landscape art and sculpture on the property and the top quality artists in the Duthie Gallery. As hosts we can recommend restaurants, studios and excursions, and provide maps of trails for hikes and rambles.

The cabin is completely private, with a private entrance; guests will feel they're in their own place while staying with us.

There is always a good supply of current books and magazines available in the suite.

Visitors to our Gallery Cabin will also enjoy its close proximity to the shops, galleries and restaurants of Ganges village, and for lavish dining, the Hastings House hotel, directly across the street.

Cozy rustic cabin surrounded by contemporary art, including a sculpture garden (magical at night). Within walking distance of Ganges. Great hosts and good value.

Comfy & Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay at the cottage. It is very cute and cozy and I appreciated/devoured the very tasty granola, buns, yogurt and orange juice that was provided for my stay.

The bed was comfortable and the bathroom /cabin overall was clean and well maintained. I was on a solo trip for a mini getaway so it was perfect for one person, but would be nice for a couple as well (2 people max). The only issue I had during the stay was the front door and its lock! It was kinda sticky and I had trouble knowing if I had the door was shut all the way- but hey, it is 100 years old!

I had been to Salt Spring before so I already knew I was visiting somewhere special, but staying at the cabin made it even more convenient due to its close location to Ganges and not being overpriced during high season.

Thanks Celia!

Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. The cottage has all a couple could wish for and is in such a tranquilie setting. You really do feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The property is clean, welcoming and very cosy. The breakfast items provided were such a lovely touch especially the crossiants, coffee beans, homemade jam and granola. If that wasn't enough the cottage is a stones throw from the Ganges. Many thanks Celia!!
