The SpaceA separate space, and entrance gives guests privacy. There is in-floor heating, a wonderfully comfortable queen sized bed, and luxurious linens. French doors with Juliette balcony, intimate shower lighting, fireplace, and wi-fi. Fridge, microwave, toaster oven, enable simple snack preparation. Seating area and eating area provided in space.
Guest AccessThis spacious room is in a separate building, so guests will have their own entrance/access, and as little or as much interaction with their hosts as they like. Interaction with GuestsWe greet guests and let them set the pace for interaction. Always happy to chat, and just as easily keep our distance if that is what the guest wishes. We will be on premises most days during guest stay, and accessible by phone when not on premises. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is quiet, and well wooded, making it enjoyable and safe for walking some of the local hiking trails. Lots of wildlife abound, including resident deer and their babies, woodpeckers, eagles, ravens, and other birds. A two minute walk to St Mary Lake, the largest lake on Salt Spring, it is also close to the popular public access beach for swimming. If lazing is what you wish, there is a small deck in the private garden surrounding the B&B which many guests have enjoyed, either taking their breakfast out there in the mornings, or enjoying the full sun in the afternoon with a snack and a glass of wine. Getting AroundSalt Spring has a transit system available, which runs every couple hours, and a two minute walk from the B&B. If you have a car, there is ample parking at the B&B. Directions are available to the B&B from any of the three ferry terminals. Other Things to NoteThere is always something happening on Salt Spring, from wine and food, to cycling events. One of North America's premier Farmer's Markets are held every Saturday from April through to October, and offer home-grown organic strawberries, Salt Spring cheeses, both organic cow's milk, as well as tangy goat cheese, and a myriad of other tantalizing goodies. Artisans from painters, weavers, to silversmiths, share the space. 7 minute drive from the B&B. Lots of hiking, biking and kayaking areas available throughout the island too.
