“Fabulous getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2010

I stayed at the Wetherly Inn and Spa on Salt Spring Island with a group of adult friends for the long weekend in May. Our group was large enough that we filled up all of the rooms and the cabin. As a result, we were able to enjoy the incredible property as though it were our own. The gardens, pool, indoor lounge area and breakfast room are all beautiful and the level of service provided by the owners was perfect for us. They made us feel welcome and made sure that we had everyhting we needed and then left us to play. If we had a question or needed something they were always available and very pleasant to talk to.

Each room in the main house has different decor and a different feel, all with extremely comfortable beds, lovely linens and deep soaker tubs. We enjoyed the delicious buffet breakfasts in the morning and cooked the rest of our meals in the cabin using the oven and the outdoor barbeque. The kitchen in the cabin is very well stocked and the owners were happy to provide any missing utensils from their own kitchen.

This was our second trip as a group and I would definitely return.

My husband and I spent a night here en route from Sidney to Nanaimo. We would have stayed longer if we could. The Wetherly Inn is a little off the beaten path, but certainly well worth the drive. The Inn is nestled in a lovely wooded areage surrounded by English gardens, with a waterfall, pond and heated outdoor swimming pool. The rooms with private baths and fireplaces are the ultimate in luxury. Absolutely everthing is top quality from the furnishings and linens to the interior craftsmanship to the delicious breakfast. The charming hosts Samantha and Peter did everything possible to make us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay. We have stayed in many top hotels and exclusive small inns in North America and we found this to be as nice as any we have ever stayed at. It is truly five-star luxury.

This is a beutiful Inn and appointed like a 5 star hotel. The owners are unobtrusive and it's very private.

The property is secluded, quiet (except for the frogs!), very large and well manicured - it's up a big hill which you'll definitely feel if on a bicycle (as I was) but only about a 10 min drive from Ganges. It's such a nice property that you likely won't miss the ocean. The hot-tub and pool are fantastic - the whole place is very luxurious. My parents stayed in the cottage which allows a small dog - although the bedrooms are small, this has a great deck with bbq.

The full Breakfast was excellent - worth paying for at least for some of your stay. Highly recommended and lived up to description on the website.

My boyfriend and I travelled to SaltSpring Island from Vancouver for a getaway birthday weekend( my 32nd). We could not have been more pleased, the ferry was late arriving and we were late for a pre-booked spa appointment and they could not have been more accomodating and understanding. We arrived and once we were shown around I was whisked to their custom built spa room for the most amazing full body massage.

The next several days we spent exploring the Island and enjoying our very luxurious, peaceful, beautiful surroundings. The room were fantastic and modern and extremely clean. The grounds are beautiful. Hottub and pool were immaculate. Not to mention the food...amazing 3 course breakfast with selections like crepes, eggs benedict, three cheese omlette with fresh herbs from their garden.

The hosts; mother and daughter Sam and Stephanie were super friendly and hospitable, they really wanted you to enjoy your stay!

Would highly recommend it and we hope to return!

We just returned from 2 days at the Wetherly Inn and Spa, and are feeling thoroughly relaxed, rested and happy. This inn is located near the top of Mount Maxwell, in what feels like a meadow. The first thing we noticed, after driving down a long, country drive way, was the gardens. If you're an avid gardener, you'll love it. Even if you're not, you'll love it. There were flowers everywhere! Nettled amongst the trees and flowers, is the Inn. I decided to poke around each room (they were being cleaned) and WOW! Each room has a fabulous and unique decor. They've given me lots of ideas for my own place. I even asked for the paint name and number. After getting settled in the 'Gold Room', we couldn't stop smiling. The bed was giant and the bedding was very luxurious. There was sunshine streaming through all of the windows, and the views were of the gardens, tree tops, and pool.
I love baths and the tub was amazing. It was giant, modern and they'd put little tea lights next to the tub, with some matches close by. The attention to detail was amazing. In passing I mentioned that I forgot my hair brush and not 10 minutes later, Sam showed up at the door with a brand new, complimentary brush.
Oh, and there was a giant bouquet of garden flowers in our room and a bottle of champagne (we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary) when we arrived. After getting settled, we went and explored the grounds. There were paths everywhere, through the gardens and trees, and we wound our way down to the hot tub and pool area. It honestly felt like we were in paradise. At about 6pm, we met up with Sam, Stephanie and Meredith (Sam's other daughter) and had a glass of wine by the pool and chatted about the making of Wetherly Inn and got a few tips on where to explore on Saltspring. Our favourite place was definitely the Saltspring Island Winery. Great wines and I loved the labels (try the blackberry port).
Both mornings, there was a soft knock on our door, and tea and muffins were left outside the door. Then we went downstairs for an outstanding 3 course breakfast. Smoked salmon, eggs, toast, fresh fruit, juice, berries from the garden, lattes... needless to say, we didn't need lunch.
We also had spa treatment each including an incredible chocolate facial. It was totally decadent and completely worth it.
Staying at Wetherly Inn was an absolute treat. We will definitely be going back next year!

The Wetherly Inn and Spa may be the best kept secret on Salt Spring Island. Its tranquil setting, delightful gardens and a mother-daughter managing team than can't be beat are a treat for the traveler who thinks they have seen it all.

We stayed in the cottage, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with a fully equipped kitchen and a delightful sitting room with a wood stove. The two large chairs in front of the wood stove beg to be used . We acquiesced. There is also a lovely deck (and BBQ) with a beautiful territorial view.

The massage treatment we booked was heavenly.

This place cannot be beat for ambiance and attention to detail. Incredibly comfortable beds and luxurious linens only add to the overall feeling of being spoiled.

What a surprise! Outstanding service in a great facility. The level of sophistication matches and exceeds many more expensive places with prestigious names. The owners/staff really understand how to make you comfortable. We will be back! The Wetherly is a place to go to really decompress. Wish our recent stay had been longer.
