Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent Christmas Retreat. We have stayed at the cottage three times for Christmas. Twice at Tantramar and the last stay at Seagates. Our family of adult children is scattered and each year we pick a cottage to get together to celebrate the season. Over the years we keep coming back to these quaint cottages overlooking the ocean to reaquaint as a family. The cottages are extremely well appointed with all the conveniences for cooking and have a very homey atmosphere with the fireplaces and all the games in the cupboard for evening activity. Great places to stay. Will be going back soon."

Wonderful Stay on Salt Spring Island

  • 5 of 5

Janet,

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful beach front home. We totally enjoyed every minute. Watching the Ferries, eating fish and chips and walking our dogs in duck creek park.

Hope to stay again when the weather is warmer.

Best Regards, Karen

Everything was very clean and welcoming. Beautiful property with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here. Lots of room to hang out and explore during the day and cozying up by the fire at night was a lovley forgoten memory ( have not had a fireplace in decades) and who can argue with heated floors in the bathroom!!! All in all the house had everything we needed and more.

Ideal family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We went over and enjoyed the cottage mid January, 2017. It was four adult children and ourselves. It was spacious, inviting, lovely, relaxing and we absolutely LOVED it all.

The fireplace was great, lots of wood available. The bedrooms were quiet and the views were fantastic. We enjoyed the island and all it had to offer.

The games were played and the deck was enjoyed (even with the cold weather...hats and gloves but it was nice!)

I would recommend this cottage to all.

PS: Our doggy enjoyed as well Woof Woof

Owner's Response: Thanks Tanya for your kind words, I am really happy your family enjoyed the cottage and the island, even with this wonderfully cold and snowy winter! I hope to welcome you back one day soon. Janet

Clean, beautiful, ideal setting and owner was incredibly easy to communicate with!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us wanted a get-away for the weekend and we were thrilled from start to finish. The property was even better than the photos and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Janet was always quick to respond and very easy to communicate with. The property is very well maintained, clean and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable and the view peaceful and relaxing. We have already booked our stay for next year and cannot recommend the property enough.

A wonderful family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four days in your charming cottage Janet. A magical Christmas overlooking the ocean, spending time relaxing and family bonding time. Your cottage is well equipped down to the last detail and is lovely. We would love to return in the warmer weather to enjoy the decks.

The property was so clean and well maintained and we would recommend it to our friends and relatives. We also loved the farmers market, the Tree House restaurant, boxing day sales in Ganges as well as the Oystercatcher restaurant.

This Christmas will be etched in our memory for ever. Thank you once again Janet. Sue and David Brown
