Hands down the best part about Spindrift is the property. We spent hours sitting right out at the tip of the peninsula and enjoying the breathtaking view. There are also two small but lovely beaches, which would be perfect for hotter weather. The deer are also very friendly! The cabins are clean and cozy. We stayed in Charlotte but spent...

The property is on a beautiful point with the ocean on both sides. We stayed in the cottage called "Constance" and it had everything you could want - well-equipped kitchen in this studio cottage. Lovely deck overlooking the water. Very convenient to the Long Harbour ferry terminal. Quick 5 minute drive to Ganges for groceries, restaurants, kayak rentals, etc. Excellent...

We spent a long weekend with friends on Salt Spring Island recently. Stayed at Spindrift and had a great time. What a lovely spot, with basically the whole peninsula to ourselves. 2 beaches and a scenic overlook, with just a couple other people. If you need to take a few days to unwind, this is the place to do it.

Spindrift is beautifully situated. It is close to the ferry at Longharbour which makes it a perfect landing on your arrival. We moved right in and got settled in our cozy cottage, named Rose. We enjoyed the evening sunshine and warm weather on the amazing deck overlooking the water. Using Spindrift as out base we easily explored nearby Ganges and...

Besides the unbelievable beauty of this location, what really stood out for me was how spotless clean the cottage was when we arrived. I travel a lot, so I see a lot of variations on "clean." This was top notch. We were in the Silvia cottage, and we barely saw anyone else on the property even though 3 other cottages...

What a special spot: in a stunning natural environment, Spindrift offers tranquility and seclusion. With abundant wildlife including herons, seals and deer, there's lots to enjoy. Being so close to Ganges, you can experience great dining. Or whip up your own gourmet meals on the BBQ on your ocean-view deck. The articulate, community-minded owner added to our wonderful experience. We'll...

This year we rented one of the cabins on the 6 acre peninsula. It was very cute and comfortable, and surrounded by beautiful trees and overlooking Welbury Bay right by the Long Harbour Ferry. Lots of dear and jack rabbits to watch while lounging in the adirondack or zero gravity chairs. The kitchen and barbecue allow you to curb your...

Spindrift was the perfect relaxed and attractive place to stay on lovely Salt Spring Island. Stayed with my sister in Sylvia Cottage. Well equipped, nice deck, plenty of open lawns around the cottage - visited by a family of deer a couple of times! We loved strolling through the grounds, little white shell beaches, enjoying the views from seats at...

We have stayed at Spindrift annually for 15 years and always enjoyed our experience. We have never been able to find any other holiday destination that is as quiet and beautiful as Spindrift. We appreciate the owners persistent care and maintenance in preserving the essential essence of the BC Gulf Island coast. Our cabin accommodation covers all our needs and...

Does with fawns calmly grazing, surrounded by sea smells and sounds, this place is absolutely wonderful for couples seeking quiet solitude. Unless they are comfortable staying on leash at ALL times, don't take your pets there to ruin the little paradise so carefully created and maintained.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spindrift is located on Welbury Point: a secluded six acre peninsula just four miles from the village of Ganges on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada. Our six cottages are situated at sea's edge near the entrance to the Point. The remainder of this scenic peninsula is left in its natural state of arbutus and fir groves with paths winding easily to private, white sand beaches. Small cove beaches, lawns and grassy niches along the Point provide quiet seclusion with broad ocean vistas. ... more   less
