|Welcome to the latest in our Super, Neighbours series of blog posts where we highlight incredible travel destinations in British Columbia!
Last month I took my little family over to Salt Spring and while we were there I did THIS live radio segment with Mike Eckford on CKNW 980AM, talking about the awesomeness of the island and the resort we stayed at called Green Acres. When I got back to the city Mike and I sat down and chatted about Salt Spring again, focusing on the culture (and BEER!) and today I wanted to show you around Green Acres and give you a bit of a lay of the land.
Salt Spring is the last stop on the “Milk Run”, which is the friendly name for the BC Ferries route that weaves through the Southern Gulf Islands. Once you get there, you de-board the ferry, bypass the actual town of Ganges which is the central hub and drive a few minutes north on two lane blacktop until you find yourself at the entrance to the resort, and this sweet gravel road.
The resort has a number of cabins that are right on the water of St Mary Lake, as well as some newer ones (chalets) tucked into the trees a little bit. This was the castle we inhabited for the cabin.
