Enjoy relaxing by the fire or observing nature in the large, beautifully landscaped yard. Bird's Hill Cottage operates as a home-based B&B in accordance with local zoning and bylaws. Previous reviews from VRBO: 'We absolutely adored our weekend stay at Bird's Hill Cottage. The silence, surrounded by nature, close to trails and easy access to other parts of the island. The cottage was immaculate and set up with everything we needed. The perfect amount of cozy during a weekend getaway from Vancouver. We cannot wait to stay here again! '..... 'We greatly enjoyed out stay at Birds' Hill Cottage. We're a group of 4 adults and 1 dog. The cottage was just the right size. The pictures don't do it justice, it's even cuter in person. It was extremely quiet all the time, we slept so well. There are many hiking/running trails that you can walk to just down the road. We ran every morning from the cabin on beautiful, forest trails. We especially enjoyed the Channel Ridge Trails, which you can access easily from the cabin. We enjoyed walking on gorgeous beaches, exploring the local farms---especially Sunset Farm, and hiking up Mt. Maxwell for great views. Ruckle Park on the south end of the island was a real gem. It's about 45 minute drive from the cabin. The main town of Ganges is a quick 20 minute drive. We had a great four night stay. I would definitely recommend this cabin on Salt Spring to family and friends.'..... 'We - being two couples - stayed at the Bird's Hill cottage over the long weekend, for a quiet retreat and get away. And it was exactly that. The northern portion of Saltspring is very quiet, so being on a side street the cottage was especially serene. Inside, the cottage is amazing. Polished concrete floors and counters give it a very modern feel contrasted with the exposed wood features and cleanly painted white walls. Everything is comfortable (chairs and beds) so it makes it easy to sink in and mellow out. Great stay, I highly recommend staying here.'..... 'This was a great place to stay: a newly-built and very thoughtfully designed cabin/house, in a quiet spot. Very private and well-equipped. Saltspring Island is a beautiful place, and a foodie's heaven. I highly recommend this cottage.More

Clean and beautiful. We felt right at home the minute we walked in. Surrounded by nature with complete privacy. We slept so well under the stars. Great kitchen and amazing bathroom. A nice intro to Salt Spring. Many thanks.

This cottage is a bit out of town which was perfect for us, with a farm shop nearby and easy access to walks and swimming from a secluded beach. You do really need to have a car to get here from Ganges. The house itself...More

Our family LOVED this little cottage! Of course, you never know what to expect just based on pictures, but this place exceeded expectations. It was absolutely spotless, and though the cottage is small, it felt surprisingly spacious. (And the kids loved the loft!) The only...More
