Our brand new (2013) two bedroom lodge is set in the countryside on Mount Maxwell but is only five minutes from Ganges with its shops, restaurants, artisan markets and entertainment.
We're minutes from award winning wineries and close to the golf courses.
Two queen bedrooms provide comfort for up to four adults. Please note there is a charge for occupants using the second bedroom. ($50 per night).
There's a kitchen with eating area and a lounge with twin sofas, a small flat screen TV and BlueRay player.
Your garden and patio area with BBQ and furniture are completely private.
Ample off street parking.
Your accommodation and garden/patio are completely self contained.
We're about most of the time. We're great gardeners and our garden projects are ongoing, so if you like to chat, we'd be pleased to join you.
On the other hand, your accommodation is completely separated from the main house, so your privacy is assured.
We're set half way up Mount Maxwell. It's not a "mountain" road, so you'll have no trouble getting here. We're close to several Provincial Parks, beaches, wineries, golf courses, hiking trails and Ganges, with its harbour, shops, artisan markets and entertainment.
In our view, you need a car or other motorized transport. We have lots of off road parking.
Hardy and fit souls do cycle all over the Island but it's a challenge for sure on some of the steeper hills!
There is a bus that meets all ferries and takes you to Ganges and many other locations on the island (about $5 per person).
We provide organic, chemical free soaps made on the premises and all towels and linens are laundered in chemical free laundry soap - also made here. Our cleaning materials are also chemical free as we endeavor to be a " green" business in every way we can.
We have a variety of breakfast choices available for which there is a $10 per person, per night additional charge. We provide complimentary tea, coffee and filtered water in the unit at all times, together with a small welcome jug of cream and milk.
Gluten or dairy free breakfast alternatives are also available.
Private garden with BBQ and patio set for four.
We're about most of the time in the garden and greenhouse. Hang over the fence for a chat anytime!
Harry and Linda were great hosts, the place was perfect. Very peaceful location, and everything you need. We only stayed for one night but would happily stay again on return trips to Saltspring.
Linda and Harry were outstanding hosts! The beauty of the location and cleanliness of their place were definitely impressive, but not quite as impressive as their hospitality! We arrived way later than the normal check-in time and they waited for us until 11 pm to let us in. I think this really demonstrates their kindness and patience as hosts. We were also a little late to check out, and while they asked us to speed things up in order for them to be able to prepare the place for the next guests, they were very gracious about that too! So, overall I would definitely recommend staying with Linda and Harry in their truly lovely place!
This place is a gem and Linda and Harry were perfect hosts.
The unit is gorgeous and spacious. It's set on a forested road a short drive from town. There are deer everywhere. The unit is fresh, immaculate and very well-appointed. The beds are lovely. The amenities were above and beyond what you'd expect. The breakfast, made to order each morning, was delicious, featuring eggs, veggies, bacon and fresh-baked bread.
I would stay here again without a thought. No hotel can approach the experience and the value is terrific. Easily one of the nicest places we've ever stayed.
The Gatehouse Lodge is located in a lovely, country setting. The space was brand new and very comfortable. It was a great place to relax at the end of the day touring around Salt Spring. It was also conveniently located less than a 10 min drive to Ganges. Linda and Harry were very nice hosts - very accommodating with our requests while being respectful of our privacy. The breakfast items were much appreciated as well. I would recommend staying here!
Gatehouse Lodge B&B was the perfect place for a little getaway to Saltspring Island with my mother and grandmother this June. The guest suite is new, clean, and comfortable. Linda and Harry were wonderful hosts; their great attention to detail left us wanting for nothing. We enjoyed chatting with them and they provided everything we needed to know for a successful market day in Ganges. The fresh bread with butter and jam, coffee and tea selection, cereals and juice were so appreciated and such a thoughtful touch. We definitely recommend staying at Gatehouse Lodge B&B during your next visit to the little island. Thank you so much, Linda and Harry!
