We have recently finished our second visit to Foxglove (our first visit was last summer so we have now seen the farm in full production and just coming out of dormancy). We have already booked another stay. The hosts, Jeanne-Marie and Michael are warm and welcoming. The farm staff are likewise. No one is intrusive. (Indeed, in summer, no one...

Thank you for taking the time to tell how much fun you have had staying on the farm. We are very honoured you are all coming back to see us this summer again. It is the perfect time of year to enjoy all the bounty of the farm and the sunny warm lazy days of summer. See you in August.

Second visit; hoping to make it annual! Perfect place to recalibrate on a gorgeous, working farm with spectacular 'fields of plenty.' (Who knew a raspberry could taste like that?!) Owned by original founders of the modern farm-to-table movement. Just being in their presence is a gift. Cabins are charming, comfortable and well-priced. Easy drive to downtown. One note: red cabin...

I stayed here with my family for three days for the Canada day weekend. We stayed in the Log Cabin and had an incredible time! It's a quite location with nice scenery and lots of options for walking/hiking trails up Mt. Maxwell. The produce was exceptional and I would highly encourage you to get a basket if you decide to...

I rarely ever give out 5's but this place was amazing!! The owners of the farm, Michael Abelman and his wife, are passionate about what they grow, passionate about good, wholesome food, the environment and also about learning from ancestral farmers. And also about giving back to the community. They showed us around, let us taste the fresh asparagus and...

The stillness at foxglove makes you forget the existence of time, of past experiences and of future desires. Everything is still, pure, and beautiful. Only the present moment is of imortance. Within a mere two nights, my partner and I found new layers of ourselves amongst the apple trees and the hospitable enhabitants of the land. Yes, all beings are...

My husband, three year old son and I just stayed in the Log Cabin at Foxglove Farm and had a wonderful time. The fruits, produce and eggs basket that we pre-ordered tasted amazing and we heard that this farm has some of the best produce on the island so we were not disappointed. The log house was rustic - no...

We stayed at Foxglove Farm in the Green Cottage for three weeks in April 2015. We have nothing but positive things to say about the farm, the staff and the cottage. Travelling from Australia with my husband and 2 year old, we were looking for somewhere to stay that would be close to nature and where we could learn about...

We arrived early for our reservation and asked to see the Green Cottage (our reserved accommodation). I am so happy we got to look at it as the pictures are nothing like the actual cottage. I went inside and found it to be dirty (not because it hadn't been entirely cleaned from the last guest) - this place would need...

I stayed at the farm in the red cabin and was somewhat let down by the accommodation. The farm itself is lovely and the food being produced commendable. The cabin was very small but that didn't bother me. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. My issues are with the practicality of the washroom/bathroom situation. The bathroom was shared...

We are just back from a weekend at the totally-memorable Foxglove Farm on Salt Spring Island. We were lucky enough to have been able to rent the Log Cabin on the property and it met our needs perfectly. The scene is quite something - open the gate to the farm and you have the privilege of spending time on a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax, Rejuvenate, Eat Well, and Play. Foxglove Farm offers self-contained classic cottages for personal and family retreats on one of the island's finest heritage working organic farms. Our accommodations include the original turn of the century restored log home, a classic farm style cottage, and a cozy sleeping cabin. Beautiful camping space is available on a limited basis or if participating in a program or event on the farm. Each of our accommodations is uniquely appointed with traditional décor, down comforters, fine linens and full bathrooms with locally made soaps. Beds have been selected for maximum comfort and support, and are accompanied with high-quality bedding. Only ecological cleaning products are used in our laundry and in cleaning our buildings. Produce baskets of seasonal fruits and vegetables harvested from nearby fields and fresh eggs can be pre-ordered. Schedule a massage, order a box of farm fresh produce-to-go, have books signed and personalized by author/farmer Michael Ableman or purchase a Foxglove Farm Gift Certificate. The farm and land inspires community, gathering, eating, working and playing together whether you are a farm crew member or a cottage guest. Foxglove Farm is a great place to bring a group - sleeping up to fourteen people. Foxglove Farm is nestled in a mountain, forest and lake ecosystem rich in flora, fauna, and natural history surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected forest and agricultural fields bordering Maxwell Lake. We are just minutes from hiking trails and a provincial park and yet only ten minutes to town. Come unplug, eat well, and be inspired and revitalized by this naturally beautiful and nourishing place. ... more   less
