Our family tradition is to find a location where we can view the Persied Meteor Shower as we have avid astronomers in the family. This year, our kids decided they wanted to go to Salt Spring Island. Thanks to Trip Advisor, we discovered Cedar Beach Resort. The only Cabin available was #15. Tight squeeze for the four of us, and the hide-a-bed was different from the photos on their website, but we made it work. It was a nice cozy apartment. The Queen Bed was really comfortable, the kids enjoyed the TV, we'd come prepared with an air matress as the boys weren't too thrilled about sleeping together...lol
There is a steep staircase by the Beach House to get up to the apartment (knew about it prior to our arrival), but as long as I only went up & down it a couple of times a day (mobility issues), it was workable.
The pool was cooler than the lake, but we used both. My husband borrowed a row boat and went fishing with the kids. It was the second time the kids had ever been in a lake. Wow, they loved it!
Such an enjoyable place! The staff were so friendly and nice. Our first time there, and won't be our last. We've already booked in for 2018 - and my parents are looking at booking too.
By the way, it was the best location for the Perseid Meteor Shower!
Thanks Cedar Beach for making our 2017 Family Vacation so awesome!
