If your looking for an amazingly secluded, quiet and refreshing spot, you've found it.
They basically are cabins on a quiet serene lake with all the amenities of two bedroom condominiums.
Fully outfitted kitchens, super comfy beds, canoes to use, paddle boards to use and a little dock to pass your time.
Wander for hours, explore and relax.
Minutes away from away you need or want on saltspring, yet it feels like your miles away from everything

We will be back

New, well equipped and tastefully decorated cabins made our stay wonderful.
I would recommend this resort for a family trip or a couples getaway.
And it's pet friendly!!
I saw a BBQ shack but didn't use. Also a new dock with paddle boards and a canoe for guests to use.

We spent our evenings and morning coffee time on the covered deck.

I wish we had longer to stay on Salt Spring Island.
Try to get a cabin lake front. Although it looks like they would all have a decent lake view.

Local pizza restaurant "Uptown Pizza" delivers a fantastic pizza!

We were so impressed with the cottage. It was exactly what we wanted. The condo was modern and well stocked with everything we needed. The deck was so inviting with a great view of the lake. We enjoyed canoeing around the lake in the evening and swimming in the lake. The staff was eager to please with anything we needed and was done in a timely manner. We absolutely loved loved our stay and will definitely be back next year. Highly recommend.

Stayed: August 2017

We stayed in a stunning lakeview cottage for 3 nights. The upscale and elegant cottage was fully furnished with a stocked kitchen, dinning room, living room, deck (with patio furniture and table), 2 full and 1 half bath, 2 bedrooms - each with a king bed. The accommodations were in pristine condition - and spotless. The pictures on the site are true to the cottages - but don't really do it justice.

The location is just minutes from the ferry in a gated, private setting. Our cottage has a lakeview and was just minutes to the lake. There were complimentary canoes and paddle boards - with life jackets.

The parking is delightful as it is just steps from the front door. Wifi is provided - and it works well. The grounds are pet-friendly and great for couples and families.

This is a wonderful resort - and I would definitely recommend this to others. We will be back again!

Room Tip: lakeview cottages are wonderful

We had a fantastic stay. The cottage we stayed in was very nice and in great condition. The kitchen was great and had most things, though could use a cutting board and maybe just a small bottle of olive oil. Housekeeping was pretty good overall - the place was clean - there were a few little issues but management was responsive when they were raised and it was all sorted. The woman in the office was very friendly and helpful and the other staff we met seemed nice.

We stayed down by the lake and it was great - the lake is small enough that we could let our kids be a bit more independent, while still keeping a close eye on them. The canoes and paddle boards were great. The life jackets could use an airing - the big plastic chest for storing them needs to have some drainage holes drilled at the bottom, so they don't stay wet (oh, and get rid of the soggy box of waiver forms) from the water pooled at the bottom. The dock is a bit small and could use some expansion as it was popular. It got a bit crowded in the afternoon, especially with people bringing their dogs down (which was fine, but the dogs would have done better w/ a bit more space).

Overall, it was an extremely relaxing stay. Bring your food and you don't have to leave the property, you can just hang out and swim and paddle and relax. There is cable and wifi.

Room Tip: down by the lake

Thanks for your feedback on your recent visit. We have removed the soggy waiver box and replaced it with a plastic one and we're working on the drainage. Each room has a cutting board but it's the same colour as the inside of the drawer we've placed them in and you're not the first person to mention this so we're going to place them in a more visible location. We hope you can return soon!
