Lakeshore on Salt Spring, formerly the Cottage Resort, offers vacation cottage rentals from studio to three bedroom, on scenic, serene St. Mary Lake on Salt Spring Island. The lake is a water shed and therefore does not permit motor vessels, making for a very peaceful and quiet getaway. The resort offers complementary watercraft for guests enjoyment. The nine cottages ( twelve by June 2108) boast fully stocked kitchens or kitchenettes, private bathrooms (some with tubs), decks with lake and nature views. The private beach offers seclusion from the over-crowded public beach access, along with comfortable recliners, hammocks, umbrellas, family picnic tables and complimentary barbecues. The vacation cottages have been upgraded with modern conveniences of hi-speed wifi, flatscreen cable television, new linens, and other cosmetic upgrades. Eight additional luxury 2 bedroom loft cottages are being built for 2017, along with a new administration building and spa.
The beautiful and nature scenery make Lakeshore on Salt Spring make it a popular destination for Salt Spring Island weddings and family events of up to 100 people. Reputable local wedding caterers, planners, photographers and rentals can be recommended to make that special occasion spectacular.
