The cabin was super clean and nicely updated. Personally we thought it was actually not very cozy but rather a little stark. However it suited our needs well and it was very reasonably priced. very economically set up. We did love the patio and beach area with the free use of the boats etc. as well as the beautiful views... More

Older and newer small cabins with outdoor cooking under a roof. Furniture not bad but no 4 stars. Mainly for outdoors people who don't want to live in a tent. Reasonably priced and boats for rent for fishing on the lake.

Cabin 11 by the lake is great location. Clean and spacious (although could do with more space for clothes). Basic kitchen facilities (pots, utensils etc). Pity the owner didnt tell us about swimmer's itch in the lake this year (leaned about it through residents at an adjoining resort who were told by that resort's management). If we'd known, kids wouldnt... More

We stayed in cabin 6 which had a peekaboo view of the lake and was a short, steep walk down to the dock and beach. The one bedroom looked to the lake and the other was at the back. The kitchen was equipped with basics but we had a problem with the stove. It was quickly rectified (fuse), however, burners... More

My wife and I were visiting the island and found everyone very nice and helpful. We decided to tour the island and see what was around. We stopped by the St Mary lake resort to inquire about rates and availability for our next stay. As we entered the office we were greeted by the most uninviting person we have ever... More

Just spent a week at St. Mary Lake Resort - had a really nice, clean and comfortable little cabin. Great views over the lake and a nice little beach for swimming. Really enjoyed it - simple, and well located for exploring the Island

We needed a place for our extended family of 8 to stay for one night and we made a great choice. We had cottage #9 and #10, side by side, lots of room. Both cottages are clean and bright. Hope to be back in the summer to enjoy the lake in warmer weather.

We have stayed here several times over the years. The setting is lovely and the resort is improved each year. Harold, the owner/ manager runs the place himself and at peak times can be a bit frazzled. But while the buildings are fine and the location is wonderful, the dock and beach could do with some upgrading. And the equipment... More

We had the cabin right at the lake, 2 bedroom, jacuzzi tub kitchen with everything you need, bbq on the private deck. All cabins are behind you so you don't see anyone else unless they come down to the beach. Amazing sunsets at the lake. No motorized boats are allowed on the lake so very peaceful. The owners are friendly... More

We are in the midst of a week on lovely Saltspring island. The weather is lovely, we have a gorgeous view of the lake..which is great for swimming. After reading some of the reviews previously posted, some of which were a little too niggly, we brought everything with us that we might need. Harold has been a very helpful and... More

“Always get the cabin beside the lake if you can. Unobstructed sunset lake views.”

“The resort itself was quiet and the guests were very considerate about noise. There is an rv park just down the lake and there was rowdiness there at times. We have cabin 9 which is great. If there were 2 families...9 and 10 would work really well. The big cabin on the beach (11) would be good for a family with older children who can be trusted so near the water.”
