We rented the cottage but still joined the other guests for the gourmet breakfast every morning. The food was very tasty and Len was very friendly and helpful with dining suggestions etc. The Guest House is located in a nice quiet location with a great yard to enjoy the birds and flowers.

We rented the cottage for 3 nights recently and were extremely happy. Len greeted us at 11pm and was very accommodating the entire time, even when our dog started protecting the cottage like it was his own. We really enjoyed chatting with both Len and Beverly throughout the weekend and their experience in hotels and restaurants is obvious. The property... More

This accommodation is more like a large home that has been remodelled rather than a hotel. It has s very homey atmosphere; rooms are small but adequate with an outside entrance from some rooms to the attractive grounds with Wisteria trees in full bloom (see photo). This residence is conveniently close to downtown Ganges. Breakfast is included in the price... More

Owned and operated by a friendly couple, the grounds are extensive and pleasant with a garden where one can sit and enjoy some calm and quiet. It is very close to the town of Ganges where shops, restaurants and coffee houses abound. Beverly, the owner, is a former pastry chef at a major Manhattan hotel. She will prepare you "to... More

This is our first visit to Salt Spring Island. Although we were early for check in, they were more than willing to accommodate us. Len was very helpful with giving us a list of things to do and directions. The studio was cozy and clean and we had a great relaxing evening after spending the day touring around the island....

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at Wisteria and had an excellent time. We stayed in the cottage which I would highly recommend if you require a kitchen and private bathroom. The decor is very bright and cheery with a definite quaint old-fashioned vibe to it. The outdoor area is beautiful and is home to... More

Stayed 2 nights. Arrived early to get very hostile reception from Beverly. We were on holidays from Ireland and having a great time until this experience. No welcome at all and told to come back at 6pm. I asked for glass of water and it was a big ordeal. My friend asked to use the bathroom and she reluctantly allowed... More

Beverly remembers this experience well. The guests had indicated that they would arrive at 6 pm but they came early before their room was made up. Beverly won't check someone into a dirty room so they may not have received the welcome they were expecting; still, it was certainly not as bad as they make out. Beverly apologized the next... More

We so enjoyed our stay at the Wisteria Guest House. Beverly was a wonderful hostess and very interesting. The breakfast was fantastic, like nothing I have ever had before. We had a bit of a problem finding it as the signage was not very good, but well worth the trouble of asking directions from a local resident.

The Wisteria is on the outskirts on Ganges, the main town on Saltspring Island. Most of our many visits here from Seattle have been by boat but this time we came by car and stayed at Wisteria. We (and our dog) were welcomed by Len and Beverly Brown and were made to feel right at home. Our cozy studio was... More

We visited Wisteria Guest House back in February, 2014 and I never quite around to writing a review but I thought it was only fair to Len and Bev that I write this review to encourage others to visit... better late than never! We were actually very lucky as we were the only ones staying in the guest house this... More
