Booked Four of the 10 cabins for a fishing weekend arrived around 1pm and were immediately told check in wasn’t till 3:30. The cabins had no floor mats, no complementary coffee, and we had to ask for toilet paper. The beach is 20 feet long at the bottom of a 100 ft hill with 19% grade. We were not allowed to keep our kayaks on the beach; however “The Cedars” next door were very accommodating and for $ 7.00 a day you can launch and leave your yanks on there beach. I will be staying At the Cedars forever more as the management of Saint Marys Lake resort made it very inconvenient for all of us who had our own kayaks to stay there..

We read mostly good reviews, and a few mixed ones, before booking. We aren’t precious travellers so we weren’t too worried, but it turned out we shouldn’t have worried at all. This place was great! Spotless, compact modern cabins (we stayed in #10, which had the BEST view of the lake. It’s further from the parking lot but we were allowed to park right next to it to load and unload), lovely swimming lake that we had to ourselves practically every day, rowboats/pedal boats/canoe to use, and just a short trip to restaurants/liquor store/Saturday market and more. The other guests were all very courteous and friendly (many were repeat visitors who knew each other) and the owner was nothing but pleasant and helpful. Cabin was stocked with all of the basics (though I did bring my own salt as I’m a salt-oholic and didn’t want to use up the packets provided) and we found the mattresses firm but very comfortable. Propane BBQ on the spacious deck worked great. Efficient garbage/compost/recycling and towel-replenishment system. Such a beautiful and relaxing spot. We will definitely be back!

I wanted to rent a cabin on salt spring so I googled this came up with many sites I sent out 3 request this place was the 1st to respond 2 days later very good price as it was off season jan 21 2019 I think they have around 10 cabins right on the lake but the cabins are on a rise about 30 or 40 feet up with a very very steep road down to water I am older and got winded trying to walk up and down to dock but if your a younger person it should be a nice adventure the check in was the only time I ever saw the guy who checked me in he gave me a pass code for internet that did not work and it took him some time to find the code I did run into him 2 other times on the property no smile no wave kinda felt like he did not want me there the cabin was on the bigger side and was very clean and well stocked with pots and pans even a toaster I was happy about this there was no one like chamber maid I was there for Monday to thursday I think the cabin had 2 bedrooms not sure one of the doors had a lock on it mite have bin a bedroom kinda creepy the bed in the room that was open very very very hard and very cheap I could not sleep on it I slept on the couch the whole time would I go back not ever

Sorry that you felt that you were not welcome. I am around if help is needed otherwise privacy is respected. Beds are new and are medium in softness. Once again sorry that we could not meet all your expectations.

I recently stayed at St. Mary Lake Resort in cabin #3. It was very clean, and the accommodation was more than adequate. It was quite private, and the owner respects privacy. My only complaint is the chairs on the deck. Make sure they do not fall between the slats!
