We rented the separate cottage which was pleasantly basic and went into the Guest House for breakfast, as this was covered in the rental plus we had the use of the lounge area if we wanted. Our host, Len and Beverley Brown were very welcoming and happy to give information about what to do on Salt Spring. We were there... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Wisteria Guest House last month and it was the perfect getaway! Just a 10 minute walk from Ganges Village, and a short drive from Long Harbor, it’s the perfect location on Salt Spring Island! We stayed in Studio 2 and thoroughly enjoyed walking the beautiful garden path to our cozy private room. We... More

We picked this bed and breakfast for its close location to Ganges. You walk out the door, turn left down Park Drive and in les than a block, you see a trail on your right that cuts over to the next street. Turn left again and walk to the school, through a path on the school grounds, and within 10... More

Once again, we were thoroughly impressed with our stay at Wisteria on Salt Spring Island as Len, Beverly and Kimoko were very hospitable. Every morning we looked forward to waking up and having a delicious breakfast in the dining room with other guests. Len kindly introduced us to other guests around the dining table and described each course as it... More

Thank you for staying with us again. I'm glad that the plant life and wildlife co-operated in making your stay a pleasant one. When that happens, the Wisteria is truly a magical place. More

I was in Wisteria for 5 days in June 2016. Wonderful place! Beverly, Len & Kimoko created one jewel with much love to the detail & sensitiveness... I loved the garden, with those flowers, threes, places to relax, with sweet hummingbirds. I was in one of the studios, with comfortable king size bed, bathroom and even small kitchenette that I...

I must start with some positive comments of course. The bed was very comfortable. The property was very quiet. But, the grounds appear neglected especially around where we stayed, one of two studios. And, the shower involves high steps into a very deep soaker-type tub! There were bars of soap but no shampoo or lotion, with thin much-used towels... We... More

We're sorry that you were not happy with your stay at the Wisteria. There were 16 other guests during your stay and we ask everyone about food 'issues' (not 'preferences') in order to prepare a breakfast that everyone will enjoy. Your husband said that he had some food issues but did not share them with us saying he could eat... More

Gorgeous, quiet, peaceful, tranquil, gardens galore with hummingbirds, and a fantastic breakfast. Great location too- just off the main road at Ganges but not right on it so convenient yet peaceful. Gracious innkeepers. This place is a gem. We loved it.

Wisteria was just what we needed. Close to Ganges downtown area. Len and Beverley were very accommodating, giving my husband a cold breakfast when he had to leave before the scheduled 9:00am breakfast. The room was clean and bright. Furnishings are old but comfortable.
