Hastings House Country House Hotel

160 Upper Ganges Rd., Ganges, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, V8K 2S2, Canada

The centerpiece of this 22-acre seaside estate—with its gardens, meadows, and harbor views—is a 1939 country house, built in the style of an 11th-century Sussex manor. Guest quarters, which are in the manor, in renovated historic outbuildings, and in a newer addition overlooking Ganges Harbour, are decorated in an English-country style, with antiques, locally crafted woodwork, and fireplaces. The Post, a stand-alone two-room cottage, is a honeymoon favorite; a pair of two-story suites in the century-old Farmhouse boast water views and country charm; the more modern Hillside Suites overlook the harbor. Elegant dinners in the manor house or on the enclosed water-view veranda include local seafood and herbs from the inn's gardens. Rates include both a lavish breakfast and a traditional afternoon tea; the former barn houses a petite spa.
