Description of the Salt Spring Island vacation b&b rental
Conveniently central to Salt Spring Island, Island Farmhouse B&B, Farm and Health Studio is within easy access of all the varied activities of Salt Spring. It is minutes from Ganges and Fulford Villages, restaurants, craft shops, beaches, kayaking, swimming lakes, riding trails, art studios, the famous Saturday Artisans Market, vineyards, hiking, cinema, golf, tennis, ferries - and much more.

The property has 10 peaceful and spacious acres with a wonderful view overlooking the valley. It has horses and chickens, as well as a developing organic garden and flowers to entice birds and butterflies. We are developing our organic strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and gooseberries, plumb, cherry and apple trees, nut trees, grape vines, herbs, lavender and bird-friendly flowers. A project we hope will grow to both delight and provide edible fruits and herbs - home grown strawberries for breakfast. Guests also might taste our own fresh organic eggs - as well as the opportunity to meet the chickens responsible for the offerings.

In the farmhouse we offer you the full family run bed and breakfast experience with a choice of charming budget-friendly rooms with bay windows and your choice of twin or double beds. For those preferring self-contained accommodation, we have a delightful suite with a queen sized bed, private bathroom, kitchenette with sofa bed, and hot tub and eating decks. Enjoy BBQing a delicious supper or relaxing on the deck overlooking the pond and pasture.


At Island Farmhouse B&B the morning brings you a deliciously healthy breakfast outdoors on the glassed patio or at the big oak table in the dining room. We offer you fresh farm eggs, organic fruit platter, waffles or other menu items of your choice. Special diets can also be catered to.

You can relax here: watch the pond fish or the horses, swing in the patio sofa or perhaps a woodland walk along leafy trails.

While staying at our B&B you have a wonderful opportunity for you to improve you health and vitality: In our Health Studio we offer a range of health improvement opportunities to help you including Massage, Bio-Energy Healing and Micro-Exercise. Take this opportunity to reduce your stress and pain levels whether from new or long term health problems and to improve your vital energy.

Guestbook

I can't believe it. My shoulder used to be so crunchy when I moved it and now after the massage I can move it freely. Thanks so much for that.

The massage you gave me was great. My hip can move so much better now and the exercises you taught me are really helping every day. It's been so wonderful to be able to do more again.

The Bio-Energy treatments I received have really helped me. My arthritis pain is hugely better - I haven't taken a pain killer since. Thank you so much for helping me.
