We are in the midst of a week on lovely Saltspring island. The weather is lovely, we have a gorgeous view of the lake..which is great for swimming. After reading some of the reviews previously posted, some of which were a little too niggly, we brought everything with us that we might need. Harold has been a very helpful and... More

The cabins are very basic and have a lovely view of the lake. Everything is in need of TLC. The dock, water crafts etc. the playground is wood and is very splintered. The owners are not friendly and if you want to have visitors, be prepared for a Spanish Inqusition. They nickle and dime you for everything including an extra... More

We moved over here from Cedar Beach Resort (where we stayed last year). Cedar Beach has great facilities, but the cabins are just too varied in quality. St Mary Lake Resort cabins are really nice and spacious, and more importantly they are clean! The cabin itself was quiet comfy and we were glad we took the one furthest away from... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, first thing I would say, we would stay here again! The rate we paid ($85.00 plus tax) pout us in cabin 10. The higher number cabin is closer to the lake, so cabin 11 was lake side. We had clear view of beautiful St Mary Lake. Our room had two bedrooms, one with a... More

Located on the beautiful St Mary's Lake and only a few miles from Ganges, this is a lovely spot, with good swimming and boating (although the resort's boats are in serious need of repair and tlc). The owner/ manager seems a bit aloof at first, but he keeps the place spotless and is actually quite helpful. Cabins are large and... More

We just returned from another idyllic week at St. Mary Lake Resort on Saltspring Island. We started going there when our first child was small, and returned there year after year with several other families and many more children! The site on the lake is amazing and provides the perfect safe and relaxing venue for a getaway. The private access... More

We've been coming to Saltspring Island for 6 years and have stayed at St. Mary Lake Resort for the past 12+ years. The cottages are maintained beautifully. They are clean and have everything you need to cook in every day, even a propane barbeque. The views of the lake are amazing. Great beach area for kids and adults. If you're... More

I’ve stayed here several times over the years, always in September (usually for the weekend, though my last time I was there for a whole week), and I have every intention of returning for years to come. The cabins are clean and spacious, with everything you need to look after yourself. The lake is beautiful and perfect for fishing and,... More

We return to this resort year after year and love a lot of things about it. The lake is great for swimming and for paddling a canoe or kayak. It's a really nice quiet location and the owners of the resort keep it in really good condition. If you need a good quality bed though, consider going somewhere else. If... More

We've been coming to Salt SPring Island every few years since 1999, but have never stayed in the same place twice. This year we tried St Mary's Lake Resort and stayed in Cabin 9. The cabin is very well situated with a great view of the lake, and the resort is in a great spot, just north of Ganges with... More
