Hotel at a Glance: Foxglove Inn & Gardens

The innkeepers at Vancouver Island’s Foxglove Inn & Gardens are passionate about food. They offer farm-to-table cooking classes using ingredients from local gardens. They also bring guests together with a free, hot breakfast, which you can scarf down at the harvest table by the fire. Afterwards, read a book by the property’s peaceful duck pond.

  • Optional Chef’s Table dinner: For the 6 p.m. three-course dinner, guests are encouraged to ask questions about the cooking process and even help to cut up vegetables. Feel free to bring your own drink to dinner. The chef will share prep and cooking tips over the course of the class and dinner, which lasts for 4 hours.
  • Inviting rooms designed to look like English cottages, and feel like home thanks to simple, elegant textiles and artwork
  • Watch the sunset over Salt Spring Island while lounging on the beach at Osbourne Bay Park.
  • Game on: Challenge your traveling companion or fellow guests to a friendly board game.
  • Go hiking in the vast wilderness in the inn’s backyard.
  • Inn-spiration: The innkeepers were inspired by Julia Child in their approach to hospitality.

Crofton, British Columbia: Tiny Coastal Town with Lake Fishing and Mountain Trails

The sleepy town of Crofton sits at the edge of Osborne Bay on southern Vancouver Island. The land slopes gently like a large bowl, framed by verdant hills and coastal mountains, with ocean views on all sides. There are no freeways or chain stores nearby—just a handful of mom-and-pop shops and a lot of peace and quiet.

Osborne Bay Park and Quamichan Lake offer ideal fishing conditions, particularly for salmon, brook trout, and bass. You can also go clamming along the bay, keeping your eyes peeled for barking sea lions and killer whales. One of the best ways to experience the waterfront is by taking a stroll along the newly developed sea walk, which stretches from the wharf to Crofton Beach.

Ferries regularly depart from Crofton to Saltspring Island, the largest and most visited spot in the Gulf Islands chain. In the village of Ganges, you can watch artisans blowing glass, crafting pottery, and whittling wood.
