Beautiful Retreat from City

  • 5 of 5

Lorraine’s house is peaceful and beautifully crafted and decorated. My family enjoyed a 4 night retreat over the Christmas holidays. The house was warm and cozy with a beautiful bath off of master bedroom. The property is private and. close to trails on Mt Erkstine.

sister retreat success

  • 5 of 5

Lorraine's home is beautiful and relaxing, thank you so much for being accommodating and helping us stay with you. My sister and I (and both our dogs) had a great time on Saltspring. It's so nice to find a LOVELY home that is DOG friendly. The open floor layout had ocean views from each room. The sunken living room was so cozy with a fireplace and comfy couches. The kitchen had high quality appliances, and all the tools you could need to make your own meals. The bedrooms were quiet and on the opposite sides of the house for privacy, a nice touch. We enjoyed hikes and beaches and farm tours (saltspring island cheeses especially). We went to Saltspring Vineyards and Saltspring Island Ales who were both open (even during snow) for tastings and purchased some souvenirs to take home. A very well rounded visit. We will definitely come back again.
