Lovely accommodation a stone's throw from the water. My best friend and I shared the Wallace Suite which perfectly suited us. A well-equipped small kitchen (stocked with home made jam, home made bread, local strawberries and eggs, coffee & tea and milk and o.j.) made self-catering a breeze. We lunched at local restaurants and had simple suppers at home. It...

I would highly recommend staying at the Blue Heron. Fantastic hostess and accommodations. We stayed 5 nights in the boat house and 1 night in the Wallace Suite. My favourite was the Boat house. Liz was a great hostess.

On our second visit to Salt Spring Island we were lucky to find the Blue Heron B & B. We enjoyed staying in the boat house with its view of the garden and the water through the trees. The suite was clean, comfortable and everything, from décor to location was well thought out. Liz, the owner, was fantastic. She met...

Two things stand out: the hospitality extended by the owner and the view of the ocean which can be seen from the bed as one wakes up. The room itself is lovely, large, bright and cozy with a king size bed.We had our own little court yard where we could have picnics all the while listening to the birds and...

Staying at the Blue Heron B & B was a most enjoyable part of my trip to Vancouver Island in the middle of June. The bed/sitting room is very spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well-equipped with maps and guides and a very interesting book about Salt Spring Island. Also, everything is condusive to getting a good sleep: comfortable bed, quiet,...

A very nice place overlooking the ocean - we could see the ocean from our comfy bed. A private entrance gives access to a large bedroom/sitting room, a kitchen and a standard bathroom. Clean and beautifully decorated. Very friendly hostess. Just minutes' walk from a good restaurant. The kitchenette is small but functional (no oven, but there's a hot-plate in...

We spent two nights on Saltspring Island and loved this little self contained cottage! We did a lot of research before deciding on this one and are happy with our choice! Located on the north end of the island about 8km from Ganges, so certainly not close to all the town center's action, but can drive there in about 15...

We spent our anniversary week on Salt Spring Island, and found the Boat House cottage very pleasing and relaxing. The bed was sooooo comfortable, we slept better than in years! About the only thing lacking was a dresser and closet for our clothes. (Altho there were pegs to hang things on, and we were able to made do!) We loved...

Elizabeth was kind enough to accommodate our young daughter (who is an experienced traveller). The Blue Heron proved to be a great home base for my husband and daughter to explore the island while I attended a weekend workshop. It was wonderful to start the day enjoying my tea with an ocean view. The garden surrounding the entire B&B and...
