Summer

Summer on Salt Spring has it all: great outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, kayaking, and sailing fill the days. The bustling Saturday Market featuring an amazing variety of crafts, art and food, is world-renowned. The Farmers Market on Tuesdays is a feast for the eyes and the palate. The wineries that call Salt Spring home welcome visitors to their tasting rooms and to watch the grapes soak up the sun.

Throughout the island, venues are overflowing with food, music and fun. A festive atmosphere floats on the savory breezes as the island basks in the warmth of the season. From mid-summer onwards, tangles of blackberry growing wild along rural roads tempt passers-by to stop and sample their sweet fruit.

Special events fill the calendar: garden tours, music and food festivals, farm festivals, Canada Day and BC Day celebrations, and BC's 3rd largest Pride Festival and parade, all culminating with the annual Fall Fair in mid-September. There is always something to do on the island in summer.

Stonehouse B&B is the perfect base for your summer adventures. Only a few minutes from all the action, and yet a world unto its own where you can get away from the crowds and enjoy serenity while working on your tan, or throw a blanket under a shady tree and lose yourself in day-dreams.
