A weekend getaway for the art lover that epitomizes Salt Springs healing vibes; like a constant massage for the soul, or staying at the house of a friend with exceedingly good taste.
Whether you are a believer or not, Salt Spring's healing energy provides the perfect relaxing weekend away; exquisitely embodied in the beautiful grounds of Stonehouse Bed & Breakfast. After a leisurely ferry ride to the island — or a twenty-minute sea plane — the best way to celebrate your arrival at Stonehouse is stargazing in the stone hot tub with a panoramic view of the bay. Be sure to make use of the accompanying steam room and changing room fully stocked with fluffy white robes before relaxing in the stunning living room, adjacent to the open-plan kitchen–complete with up-lit onyx countertops to match the stars — then off to your private suite for the weekend; all rooms with breathtaking views of course.Stonehouse's host and resident island-expert Michael Coughlin provides not only perfect conversation (culture, travel, music; whatever your tipple), but also breakfast cuisine of an extremely high calibre (think egg soufflé and griddlecakes with cinnamon and orange).Aside from the stunning BÃ¶sendorfer full grand piano that sits in the centre of the lounge area (a room which is art in itself, formed to resemble the up-turned hull of a ship), Stonehouse's art collection adds an immeasurable air of illustriousness. From Lynn Demers two 7ft bronze kimonos in the courtyard to Ron Crawford's Stonehenge-inspired Standing Stone Circle surrounding a fire pit with inbuilt sound system, Stonehouse combines culture and modern conveniences to create the perfect retreat for anyone looking to indulge themselves.
