“Wonderful cottage and service- looking forward to returning soon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had such a good time at the cozy woodpecker and yes there are woodpeckers up close as well as hummingbirds and deer etc. The cottage was well designed and super clean. Excellent service from Duncan, Emma and Dexter. They gave us all the privacy we wanted but were there to help if needed. The driveway is steep but it really makes you feel set back far from the road, and the proximity to town and the ferries is great. Freedom to use the grounds as well as a great view of the property and nature from the large deck came in handy since we were there on an unusually hot weekend and spent most of our nights outside. We have been travelling to SaltSpring Island for many years and this was an opportunity to show our friends why we like it there so much. The woodpecker cottage really helped to win them over. Thank you for a great stay. We will return for certain.

“A tranquil forest retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My wife and I, together with a visiting friend from Toronto, spent a relaxing week at this cottage which is in an ideal location on Saltspring island....close to Ganges. The recently constructed cottage was clearly designed with great attention to detail and is beautifully appointed with tasteful but functional furniture etc. The cottage is part of a 5 acre property but sufficiently distant from the main house to afford privacy and with a fascinating array of bird life on the doorstep. Our hosts, Duncan and Emma were charming and solicitous...making sure we had a supply of fresh produce for breakfast (which from our perspective was a premium feature which distinguished the Cosy Woodpecker from a simple cottage rental). Finally, given that we stayed in peak season I feel we got excellent value...the tariff is very reasonable for such a quality product.

“A nice home away from home”

We stayed at the Cosy Woodpecker and would highly recommend it. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. Each morning we ate local baked goods and homemade jam. There are plenty of books to read and music to listen to. The cabin is beyond lovely! They have thought of everything. I would highly recommend this cozy stay to any traveler.
