Stonehearst's cottage is the centrepiece of a huge lot in the calm Northern part of Salt Spring Island. When we arrived, we walked around for almost two hours just admiring it all. The landscaping does a great job showing off the natural beauty of stone and water, with bright, flowered gardens throughout.
The cottage itself is the most impressive I've ever seen. The floor is made of giant slabs of rock which are heated so you can comfortably walk bare-foot. Red clay covers the walls and all the trim is made of shaped stone or solid hardwood. You don't really get to see homes like this anywhere else.
Mark was our host here and he made sure we were taken care of. In our particular case he went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. My wife and I got married at Stonehearst, in the courtyard just beside the cottage. Our host was so excited for us and did everything he could to accommodate. The whole thing went well and the photos from the wedding look amazing. We look forward to staying at Stonehearst again for our anniversary, and many more.
