Cottage is gorgeous with all of the convenience of home away from home. It is well maintained, clean, warm and inviting. Welcome basket with goodies from hosts’ own garden was a wonderful touch that we appreciated and enjoyed while we were there. With Salt Spring Island’s locavore culture we also loved shopping at the farmers market and many farm stands...

The Cozy Woodpecker Cottage is undoubtably fabulous! We had the cottage to ourselves but it could easily accommodate 6 people. Breathtaking nature views, super comfy beds, spa-like bathroom and a patio that rocks! Imagine the freshest fruit and vegetables brought to your door, tasty jam and the Dexter the coolest dog ever greeting you every morning (not with barks but...

Travelling with our 21 and 13 year old sons this was our bit of bliss between surfing in Tofino and biking in Whistler and our 5 days at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage were just perfect. We loved the location - it felt like the middle of nowhere but only 10 minutes to Ganges. The cottage had everything we needed (loved the...

Our family stayed at the Cosy Woodpecker for a week in July. It was bliss! The breakfast provisions were delicious and the fresh and abundant raspberries from the garden were a great addition. The kids loved having Dexter show them around the property, and looking through the bird book to figure out what was flying around outside. We can't recommend...

Our second visit to Cosy Woodpecker was bliss! The cabin was perfect. While my hubby walked the beautiful property I listened to the various bird calls. Our dogs loved the visit as well. Dexter made sure to show our dog Scout how to eat berries off the bush. Salt Spring was amazing as well. We enjoyed the music under the...

Our family rented the cottage for an extended stay in the fall of 2013. The cottage is very comfortable and warm, the location is beautiful, and Duncan and Emma were very accommodating. At that time of year we frequently saw or heard woodpeckers, humming birds and frogs, and we can highly recommend the Woodpecker Cottage when staying on Salt Spring...

I can't say enough good things about Cosy Woodpecker Cottage. You can tell Duncan and Emma put a lot of thought and care into every detail and they are very friendly and easy to talk to. Their dog Dexter was great as well. I brought my dog with me and they got along well and even if I left the...

We (both from Germany with a 6 month old daughter) visited Saltspring in June 2013 and stayed for a week at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage. The cottage is very bright with a great patio overlooking Emmas and Duncans wonderful garden and has a well equipped kitchen. When we decided to come to Saltspring we thought one week would be too long....

This is by far one of the loveliest places I've been for a vacation. We were greeted right away by the very rambunctious and sweet dog Dexter, who provided endless entertainment through out our stay, as he snuck into the compost, chased birds, and smothered us with kisses. Emma and Duncan, the owners, were equally welcoming, though they didn't smother...
