I have been going to Spindrift since the early 80's - most of my stays in Henrietta, most of them alone with a dog, some as a couple, some with friends. Whatever the reason to visit, the feeling upon arrival is always the same - peace. The peninsula is insanely beautiful, the views, smells, sounds of the sea - fantastic. The cottages have everything you need, are always clean with personal touches in the artwork, the pottery, the dog treats on the table. The owner and staff respect guest privacy while the wildlife (deer, eagles, sea otters among others) are around for entertainment - a perfect balance. I always leave feeling refreshed & relaxed. I have never had a bad visit, or experience there. It is simply the best place to be.
- 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
