Morning and evening sun filter through the overhanging cedar boughs along the walkway.With cedar trees surrounding you, cedar planks below and cedar shingles above, there is comfort in being in a space made with natural materials.  We've even found Canadian patio tiles made from recycled rubber.

About this listing

Our 3 acre property is only a 25min. walk from Ganges. We nestled this clean and quaint cabin in its own cedar grove, separate from the main house. It was built with the style and feel of what we believe and love a home to be. With full breakfast.

The space

Your cozy and quiet cabin for two has beautiful natural lighting with a pine ceiling, cork floor and a high bed, overstuffed with feathers and crisp white linens. A dozen steps along the covered cedar boardwalk you'll find the sweetest no-flush toilet with a sink in its own solar-powered outbuilding. Your outdoor cast iron claw foot tub and wash basin are fully plumbed with hot and cold water.

Guest access

propane fireplace, cutlery/dishware/cutting board, kettle/teas, mini fridge, filtered drinking water, towels, books and games; also many walking paths and use of our kayak

Interaction with guests

We will try to greet you upon arrival, yet understand the value of complete privacy to come and go as you wish. If you need the scoop on local happenings or just to be pointed in the right direction, Tara, a longtime Islander, is happy to be your number one connection!

Other things to note

Our border collie/blue heeler, Canyon, will likely want to greet you as you drive in. He is gentle and friendly.

Tara's place is super cozy, with the outdoor bathtub being the obvious highlight. The location is quiet and peaceful, yet still conveniently close to town. Tara herself was an awesome host who cooked a delicious breakfast every morning and made sure we knew about everything the island had to offer. Stay here!

A delightful escape for the both of us. We loved the getaway from reality and it came with a beautiful breakfast every day! The place was so cool and the bathtub was a highlight. Nothing but good vibes the whole way through. We drank some beers, had a soak and enjoyed our time. Thanks for everything!

Fantastic location to explore the island. The tasty breakfast was just what you needed to start the day. You must experience the bath this will be a highlight of your trip.

Tara's place was absolutely wonderful - so peaceful, relaxing and completely unique!! The stove made the place so cosy we didn't want to leave, and the outdoor tub was heaven. Tara was very friendly and helpful - as well as making excellent breakfasts! The location is close enough to the village to walk, but far enough that you feel like you're completely away from it all. We'll come again if we get the chance - thank you Tara (and Canyon)!

West Over B&B is a great place to get away from the city. Very comfortable for two people, we loved the baths, the fire place, the nice food, and being in the middle of the forest! Thanks again.

We loved our stay at the Westover B&B. Martin made us a great breakfast each morning and was very helpful with recommendations. The bath on the patio was amazing under the stars and the fire was very cozy. 10/10 I would recommend this place if you're looking for a quiet retreat on Salt Spring!
