Our family rented the cottage for an extended stay in the fall of 2013. The cottage is very comfortable and warm, the location is beautiful, and Duncan and Emma were very accommodating. At that time of year we frequently saw or heard woodpeckers, humming birds and frogs, and we can highly recommend the Woodpecker Cottage when staying on Salt Spring... More

I can't say enough good things about Cosy Woodpecker Cottage. You can tell Duncan and Emma put a lot of thought and care into every detail and they are very friendly and easy to talk to. Their dog Dexter was great as well. I brought my dog with me and they got along well and even if I left the... More

We (both from Germany with a 6 month old daughter) visited Saltspring in June 2013 and stayed for a week at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage. The cottage is very bright with a great patio overlooking Emmas and Duncans wonderful garden and has a well equipped kitchen. When we decided to come to Saltspring we thought one week would be too long.... More

This is by far one of the loveliest places I've been for a vacation. We were greeted right away by the very rambunctious and sweet dog Dexter, who provided endless entertainment through out our stay, as he snuck into the compost, chased birds, and smothered us with kisses. Emma and Duncan, the owners, were equally welcoming, though they didn't smother... More

A group of us visited Salt Spring Island in the beginning of May and had a wonderful time. Not only is the island a beautiful place, but so is the Cozy Woodpecker. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The cottage was very clean and a wonderful breakfast basket filled with local goodies welcomed us when we arrived.... More

We stayed at the Cosy Woodpecker this September for one week and loved it! The cottage is clean, beautiful and well equipped. The breakfast items were in a nice welcome basket and the hosts Emma and Duncan were very welcoming. It was so nice to get away from the city and enjoy this wonderful property. I highly recommend the Cosy... More

We stayed here for several weeks during a writing retreat and it was absolutely heavenly, Perfectly quite, close to hiking trails, wooded, a nice bicycle ride to town and the local wineries. The property is beautiful with a lovely garden full or organic fruits and vegetables that the owners share with guests. The cottage is impeccably cared for, very clean,... More

We loved staying at the Cosy Woodpecker Cottage! It was very clean and tidy with great finishing and furniture. It only took us 5 mins to drive there from the Long Harbour ferry terminal and 10 mins drive to Ganges. The cottage is nestled in the most beautiful surroundings with wildlife right at your doorstep. You are right in the... More
