Second visit....Hostess Beverly is a wonderful chef, best breakfasts ever. Very comfortable and clean accommodation. A home away from home.. pet friendly, quiet, close to town centre and dog parks. Thank you Len and Bev.

Booked a return flight, rented an SUV, and circled the Vancouver Island in early March for a week without any real plan. Stopped by Salt Spring Island mostly because I can make the jump from Crofton-Vesuvius and to Fulford Harbour-Swartz Bay/Airport. People have mentioned that SSI is an extension of Victoria... I have to agree and half of Island seems...

We came during the Winter and rented a room with washroom located inside the room. They also have rooms with shared washrooms (total of 6 rooms inside the main building) It’s an older building so the walls aren’t particularly thick, so if you like to sleep in (albeit breakfast is at 9 am) you will likely hear people walking down...

We stayed twice in December 2016. Both times on short notice . Len and Beverly were fantastic hosts and accommodated us very well. Breakfast was as stated in their listing, beyond expectations. I have no problem recommending this place for a cozy getaway.

We stayed two nights at the Wisteria Guest House. We had room 5 with a private bath. Everything was perfect – easy check in, room right at the front with sliding glass door to a little deck and the garden. The bed was very comfortable, the room was quiet and everything worked as expected. The breakfast was outstanding each morning...

Beverly is an outstanding chef. The breakfast here was fabulous. The accommodation is a rustic style .. sort of cottage like. Very dated. Not really my cup of tea. The grounds are lovely, with a variety of plantings including fruit trees. Beverly invited us to enjoy the fruits (apples, pears, plums). Very lush. Enjoyed our stay. My preference is something...

I attended with a friend for 2 nights for our first visit to Salt Spring, me from Vancouver and my friend from Ontario. Beverly and Len were very pleasant upon arrival, and once we checked in they gave us great a shortcut of walking directions to get to the Saturday Market! The rooms were clean, fresh sheets and pillowcases, 2...

I was travelling from Saturna Island to Vancouver Island and decided to stay on Salt Spring for one night. Wisteria Guest House provided a perfect location. Close to all that Ganges Bay has and quiet if that is what you are looking for. Even though I only had breakfast there one morning, other guests were saying how fabulous it was...

I am searching for a home on Salt Spring Island and knowing I would not be in my room much, my priorities were location (close to town) and price without all of the other frills. Wisteria provided both of these with the surprise bonus of very gourmet and generous breakfasts and wonderful beds. The common living area is very inviting...

I simply cannot recommend Wisteria Guest House enough. A sweeping driveway takes you through lush gardens with heavily laden fruit trees, every imaginable variety of scented flower, fragrant herbs and beautiful flitting hummingbirds. Len and Beverly are simply the perfect hosts, Len is such a gentleman and introduces you at breakfast with a gentle well informed ease and Beverlys breakfasts...
