We have stayed here several times over the years. The setting is lovely and the resort is improved each year. Harold, the owner/ manager runs the place himself and at peak times can be a bit frazzled. But while the buildings are fine and the location is wonderful, the dock and beach could do with some upgrading. And the equipment... More

We had the cabin right at the lake, 2 bedroom, jacuzzi tub kitchen with everything you need, bbq on the private deck. All cabins are behind you so you don't see anyone else unless they come down to the beach. Amazing sunsets at the lake. No motorized boats are allowed on the lake so very peaceful. The owners are friendly... More

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
