Fall at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage

So its October – that kinda snuck up on us!  We have had a great summer at the cottage – thanks to all of our great guests!  It definitely feels like the summer is slowly ending here – but the weather is still fabulous with clear blue skies and warm afternoons.  So if you want a get away, don’t forget our low-season rates now apply – only $145/night.

Owl at Cosy Woodpecker CottageThe change in season seems to be bringing us some different wildlife.  We are still surrounded by frogs – in fact they like the cottage so much we were wondering if we should have called is Friendly Frog Cottage!  We have been getting daily visits from a young Hairy Woodpecker, and have also seen a sap sucker at close quarters   We had an owl sat on our nature tree stump in broad daylight as well which is always exciting.  There have been honey bees on our artichoke which has finally flowered and there seem to be a lot of big caterpillars around!

In the garden it looks like the late warm weather might finally give us some sweetcorn and we are still harvesting stacks of tomatoes – its always good when a late start to the growing season is balanced by abundance in October.

So if you are heading over to Salt Spring Island any time soon and need accommodation, we are open all year and would be glad to see you at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage.
