Beautiful home base for exploring Salt Spring (with a dog!)
Just spent a week at The Drake House with my mom (and dog!) We had an AMAZING time! The house is very clean, charming, tastefully decorated, spacious, filled with natural light and fabulously comfortable furniture. (The king bed in the master bedroom feels like you're sleeping in cloud at the most posh hotel around). Decks and patios on all sides of the house mean sunny spots for all times of day - breakfast on the back deck and cocktail hour in the courtyard! House is 3 min walk to everything you need - cute shops and restaurant, grocery and liquor store (Ganges), great parks, yummy farm stalls, etc. We had a car, so explored far and wide. All parts of the island accessible within 10-30min drives on pretty roads. To pet owners: The fully enclosed courtyard made having our pooch here a breeze. Most places around the island, including stores and galleries, turned out to be 'dog friendly' (on leash) and many trails and rugged beaches allowed for off-leash adventures for well behaved dogs. We would most definitely recommend this place (in fact, we already have!).
