Blue Cottage on St Mary Lake is a perfect escape: read by the fireplace, canoe on the lake, fish, listen to birds, walk, watch stars. Near tennis courts, a great indoor tennis court and golf course, 4 km from Ganges where indoor pool, gym, yoga studio, shops, boutiques, restaurants and and an arts centre await. A natural retreat to observe changing seasons, sunrise and sunsets in a quiet sanctuary.
We have owned this little cottage since 1988. We have spent all our summers here, seeing our children play, swim, sleep, enjoy easy time, finally grow and move on! We now use Blue Cottage as our base to grow a large vegetable garden which provides enough veggies to sustain us through the year. Every year, we have renovated, enhanced, beautified Blue Cottage to make it more comfortable, more enjoyable. We are lakefront, facing south, and have a canoe and PFD (life vests) available in different sizes (not all though).
It is a little slice of paradise on earth.
You will have Blue Cottage to yourself while here. The property is on 1.3 acre, so there is room to move! You can walk through the property to access the lake, canoe and such. Please respect the garden: we grow veggies year round, so don't let kids trample them.

There is another little cabin on the the property and my husband Louis and I stay in this cabin when we need to work in the garden.
My husband Louis and I will be happy to offer suggestions on anything Salt Spring! If we are not around, you can always get in touch with me through email or by phone.
This is a lovely place for kids: our neighbours have 2 pigs, 2 goats, many chicken, a dog and a cat. Kids love to go feed the animals who are used to having little visitors. The property is entirely deer and rabbit fenced, which means little ones are also fenced in, a good safety precaution on a lakeside property.
it all boils down to common sense respect, but to be clear:
- no parties
- no smoking
-no disturbing behaviours that would annoy neighbours (e.g.: loud music)
- no camping on the property (tent or camper van).
- if additional guest(s) show up, a charge of $50/day/guest will be requested

I am an avid gardener and Iyengar yoga teacher, retired from teaching philosophy and Religious Studies in colleges and after also having a stint as an administrator. I divide my time more or less equally between Victoria and Salt Spring, teaching in Victoria during the cooler months and gardening in Salt Spring in summer. With my husband, we have been to China several times, Tibet, Vietnam, many European countries, and Mexico and USA. We visit our families in Quebec annually. We have been hosting international guests for years: initially we hosted students, then travellers. WE have travelled staying with people around the world: every single experience a new and enriching one.
I try to live by the motto of compassion towards others. Generosity takes us on a turning wheel: we give and we will receive.
