What Past Guests Are Saying
Great place to stay!
A group of us visited Salt Spring Island in the beginning of May and had a wonderful time. Not only is the island a beautiful place, but so is the Cozy Woodpecker. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The cottage was very clean and a wonderful breakfast basket filled with local goodies welcomed us when we arrived. Duncan and Dexter (definitely man's best friend) were always up for a good chat and suggestion on what to do.
The Cozy Woodpecker is definitely where you should stay visiting Salt Spring Island, I am certain the four of us will visit again.

Comfortable, private, very well appointed, spacious retreat
We really had a great get away and comfortable retreat. It is very upscale in our world, clean, comfortable lodgings.
We loved the cosy woodpecker cottage!
We loved our stay at the Cosy Woodpecker! The cottage is absolutely immaculate and decorated in such a lovely way. The pictures actually don't do it justice.
It can be difficult traveling with 2 young children (ages 3 and 5) but Emma and Duncan are so welcoming that we felt right at home. Also, it was fun for us to have the friendly dog Dexter around!
The breakfast that was left for us was simply amazing. There was delicious granola, pancake mix, homemade jam, amazing bread, local coffee, a dozen eggs from the farm down the street, and cream and milk, and fresh berries from the garden! We had plenty of food for all three mornings of our stay.
The beds were so comfy, the deck was cozy, the house immaculate... we will be back! Thank you Duncan, Emma, and Dexter!

Wonderful, beautiful, secluded island retreat
We stayed here for several weeks during a writing retreat and it was absolutely heavenly, perfectly quiet, close to hiking trails, wooded, a nice bicycle ride to town and the local wineries. The property is beautiful with a lovely garden full or organic fruits and vegetables that the owners share with guests. The cottage is impeccably cared for, very clean, and tastefully put together. The owners know the Island and had many excellent recommendations for dining, hiking, beach walks, and visiting local artists and artisans on Salt Spring. We would return in a heart beat.
