Michael Coughlin, General Manager
Stonehouse is the epitome of West Coast comfort and elegance. It offers an unparalleled Salt Spring Island experience set against a dazzling tableau of British Columbia's Southern Gulf Islands, crowned by the snow-capped volcanic peak of Mount Baker rising majestically across the Salish Sea. There are over 4 acres to explore, through tree-lined lanes, gardens and the rolling hillside of the grounds. The Standing Stone Circle renders tangible stillness, endurance and mystery. Adorned with a diverse collection of art and other objects that pique curiosities and start conversations, the Stonehouse provides a distinctive ambiance for the discerning traveller. Graceful hospitality and myriad leisure activities allow guests to relax in their home-away-from-home, while gourmet breakfasts featuring the amazing bounty of local producers tantalize the senses. Conveniently located just a few minutes from the dining, shopping and services of Ganges village, Stonehouse is the perfect home base from which to explore the island. Retreat to luxury, pure and simple, in the embrace of art and nature.

Salt Spring is the largest of BC's Southern Gulf Islands with a microclimate reminiscent of parts of the Mediterranean. Idyllic rural settings are to be discovered around each bend, while forests, hiking trails, lakes, and seashores beckon. There is a plethora of out-door recreational activities to choose from, such as golfing, sailing, kayaking, beachcombing, fishing, swimming, and tennis. The community has roots that include the Coast Salish peoples, pioneering families from the Old World, Kanakas from Hawai'i, freed slaves from the USA, and others. More recently, it became a haven for artists, writers, thinkers, and modern day migrants escaping the city, all blending into a unique, diverse and creative community. Visitors are welcomed warmly, and invited to share the laid-back island lifestyle. Artisans display their creations at the Saturday Market and at their studios. Several fine art galleries add to the experience, collectively creating one of North America's top small-town arts destinations. Fulford Harbour and Ganges village have unique shops to explore and a range of services. Treat your taste buds to the island's cheese makers, wineries, bakeries and farm stands.
