On our second visit to Salt Spring Island we were lucky to find the Blue Heron B & B. We enjoyed staying in the boat house with its view of the garden and the water through the trees. The suite was clean, comfortable and everything, from décor to location was well thought out. Liz, the owner, was fantastic. She met... More

Two things stand out: the hospitality extended by the owner and the view of the ocean which can be seen from the bed as one wakes up. The room itself is lovely, large, bright and cozy with a king size bed.We had our own little court yard where we could have picnics all the while listening to the birds and... More

Staying at the Blue Heron B & B was a most enjoyable part of my trip to Vancouver Island in the middle of June. The bed/sitting room is very spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well-equipped with maps and guides and a very interesting book about Salt Spring Island. Also, everything is condusive to getting a good sleep: comfortable bed, quiet,... More

A very nice place overlooking the ocean - we could see the ocean from our comfy bed. A private entrance gives access to a large bedroom/sitting room, a kitchen and a standard bathroom. Clean and beautifully decorated. Very friendly hostess. Just minutes' walk from a good restaurant. The kitchenette is small but functional (no oven, but there's a hot-plate in... More

We spent two nights on Saltspring Island and loved this little self contained cottage! We did a lot of research before deciding on this one and are happy with our choice! Located on the north end of the island about 8km from Ganges, so certainly not close to all the town center's action, but can drive there in about 15... More

We spent our anniversary week on Salt Spring Island, and found the Boat House cottage very pleasing and relaxing. The bed was sooooo comfortable, we slept better than in years! About the only thing lacking was a dresser and closet for our clothes. (Altho there were pegs to hang things on, and we were able to made do!) We loved... More

Elizabeth was kind enough to accommodate our young daughter (who is an experienced traveller). The Blue Heron proved to be a great home base for my husband and daughter to explore the island while I attended a weekend workshop. It was wonderful to start the day enjoying my tea with an ocean view. The garden surrounding the entire B&B and... More

We highly recommend this clean and romantic B & B. The owner respected our privacy by greeting us at arrival and checkout. The cottage was stocked with milk, eggs, juice and a variety of breads and jam in the refrigerator. A barbeque in the private garden is handy if you want to cook fresh fish from the market in Ganges.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Heron B&B in June of 2008 to do some kayaking. It was wonderful we had the Galiano suite and it was everything we expected and more. You couldn't find a nicer hostess than Elizabeth, very friendly and most helpful. We looked forward to her baked goodies in the morning, a perfect start... More
