Great visit! Comfy cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at the Eagles Nest Cottage. The cabin had a beautiful view, and all the amenities of home provided. If we come for another visit to Salt spring, we will stay here again for sure!

Very relaxing and private

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Eagle's Nest was just what we needed to relax in a peaceful, private 2 bedroom gem on Saltspring Island. The water view towards Crofton, fully equipped kitchen (plus BBQ), and hot tub were highlights. The deck was lovely for tanning, sipping cocktails and enjoying the stars at night. Monika and her husband were lovely to chat with while providing us with lots of private time. We will be back!

Beautiful property and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Eagle's Nest Cottage for 3 nights in July 2016 and could not have asked for a better experience. The cottage is tucked away on the West side of the property and the main house is up on a hill. We felt like we had all the privacy that we needed despite Peter and Monika being on the same property.

The cottage is easy to find and they have a deer fence enclosing the entire property so it is very safe. We had our dog with us and they were very gracious and allowed him to run around as he wished!

Peter's garden is beautiful and he happily showed us what he was growing and ever offered us some of his beautiful veggies! It was prime blackberry season when we arrived and we were encouraged to pick as much as we wanted. Peter and Monika are extremly generous hosts!

The cottage itself is quiet and the perfect size for a couple with a small child or a dog. We had everything we needed and used their BBQ grill and hot tub every night. The star gazing is amazing!

Ganges is about 10 mins drive away and the Country Grocer or local farm stands are a great place to stock up for food so you can enjoy it all at the cabin.

I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to many people!

A sweet, tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Monika's place was an adorable, updated cottage. Even netter than the pictures! The cottage was well equipped and very clean. It had wonderful views of Vesuvius Bay from the picture windows in the main living area and the bedroom and was very private and secluded. The space was beautiful. It was cozy, but spacious. The private hot tub was perfect after a day of Saltspring adventure. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Seaside restaurant, 10 mins. away and the festivities in Ganges, 15 minutes away.Monika and Peter were gracious hosts, friendly and available. We have recommended this spot to several friends already!

peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

we spent a few nights at Eagle's Nest Cottage in May 2016; the cottage was very clean; the location is great! (on the west coast, with lots of sunlight all day, close to the beach); the views were spectacular and the huge windows both in the bedroom and in the living room only added to the numerous attributes of this place; our dog (full size golden doodle) had a blast running around in the fenced yard, sometimes chasing (un-successfully, of course) rabbits; the hosts are amazing people, very friendly and also very welcoming; they live close by on their 5 acre property, but they gave us all the privacy we wanted while still making themselves available if/when we needed them; we also enjoyed hiking on the trails that start right next to their property; there are two beach accesses, one very close to the cottage (but this is steep and rocky) and one about 2 km away; this second one leads to a very open clean beach with great access to the water for both us and our dog (who loves swimming); we really enjoyed our stay at Eagle's Nest Cottage and we recommend this to all our friends; we will for sure be back next year!

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at Eagles Nest very much. The place is clean compact and well equipped. The view is great and it is very quiet at night. Hot tub on the deck is an added bonus. We loved the hiking trails that lead directly off the property. Lots of fun to be had on Saltspring
