This is a Salt Spring family house on Booth Bay estuary, five minutes from the town of Ganges. It was originally owned by the Acland family and later became the Booth Bay Resort and Cottages. The land was divided and our house is the original Acland family house. We call it Booth Bay cottage even though it has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. It reminds me of family summer cottages in Maine or on the Great Lakes.It is well equipped and the beds are all high quality and comfortable, the geothermal heating and cooling makes the house comfy all year round and there are two propane fireplaces, one in the library/tv room and one in the dining room. There are small outside heaters on the two porches. The pool is fabulous and there is a small exercise room with a treadmill, stationery bike and free weights. In Ganges it is possible to rent kayaks, bike and canoes, to go on a fishing charter or a cruise. The highlight of Salt Spring weeks are our two outdoor markets- only organic produce on Tuesday afternoon and everything made or grown by hand on Saturday morning. These markets start at Easter and run through Canadian Thanksgiving in October. This house works well for multi generation gatherings.+ More
