Stayed for a week with my 19 month old son, my husband, my in-laws and my mother. We had a very relaxing holiday and no one wanted to leave! Loved spending time on the dock and in the boats! Jack gave us some good tips regarding hiking around the island (the fairy trail and Ruckle Provincial Park were our favorites!)...

About the neighbourhood
Salt Spring Island is located between Victoria and Vancouver in the sheltered Gulf Islands. We are only 35 minutes by ferry from the Victoria Airport and a 1.5 hour ferry ride from Vancouver's Tsawwassen ferry terminal. Lakeside Cottage is on the quiet side of Cusheon Lake, a great lake for swimming or kayaking in, and only a 10 minute drive from town. The Cottage is located on a knoll above our family home. There is a footpath to the dock, where you may relax during the day. There is the possibility of others using the facilities. Guests have complimentary use of canoes, kayaks, rowboat with electric motor and paddle boat. Lots of beautiful forest for walking nearby.
