Relaxing Salt Spring Island Accommodation
If you’re looking for Salt Spring Island accommodation we’d be delighted to have you stay with us at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage. It’s a bright 2 bedroom self-contained vacation cottage located 5km north of Ganges in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Perfect for relaxing and exploring the island in all seasons and if you love nature, local food, cute and characterful decor you’ve come to the right place! Check rates & availability here >>
Cosy Woodpecker Cottage is completely self-contained and fully equipped with two gorgeous bedrooms, luxury kitchen, sitting room, wood-burning stove, a soothing bathroom with ‘zen’ soaker tub, 30ft wide covered deck and more. Read your books on the deck overlooking the property, organic fruit and veggie gardens – and in winter choose whether to soak in the spacious bathtub or read a book curled up on our wraparound sofa in front of the wood-burning fireplace…
Setting: The cottage overlooks 2 acres of woodland, fruit trees and garden and nestles at the edge of a woodland of arbutus and fir. Guests are welcome to explore the property – 5 acres of mixed natural woodland with a beautiful rocky ridge that you can climb in search of peace, wildlife or the old camping platform! Two acres have been cleared and fenced which provides a delicious harvest of fruits, berries and vegetables as we love to grow as much of our own food as we can. Sunny, light and spacious, with herbs, strawberries and raspberries right outside your front door – just help yourselves!
Breakfast: More than just a holiday cottage, we also provide local, homemade and organic (where possible) breakfast materials which you prepare yourself in our fully equipped kitchen. Example breakfasts include eggs from Ragged Azz Ranch, bread from Penny’s Pantry, fresh home-picked berries (eg. strawberries, tayberries, blackberries), organic pancake mix and more. PLUS coffee from awesome local boutique coffee roasting company Mount Maxwell Roasting!
Nature: The property is also a haven for the birds and bees. There are 5 different types of woodpecker, 2 types of hummingbirds and a host of other birds and animals including owls, the gorgeous mini Pacific Tree Frog and more. On sunny days it’s always fun to see how many different types of bee you can find on almost any flowering plant. Click here to learn more about nature on Salt Spring Island.
Reasons to visit: Come to explore everything that Salt Spring Island has to offer. Whether it’s a fun weekend getaway, a break with the kids, a chance to unwind or a longer stay we are happy to recommend things to do, places to eat and sights to see. Some of our visitors want to move here, we’ve had people come on honeymoon, writing retreats, to attend a course – and we’re popular as a first getaway with your baby too!
And winter is a great time to visit: Salt Spring has many great winter events like our huge November Book Sale, fabulous Christmas Craft Fairs, Seedy Saturday in February and more. Or just come and curl up and read a good book snuggled and toasty warm in front of the wood-stove.
