Green Acres Resort on St. Mary Lake, Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada

Welcome to Green Acres Lakeside Resort Salt Spring Island. Located just minutes away from the town of Ganges, on the shores of St. Mary Lake,  visitors often say Green Acres is the place they thought didn’t exist anymore. Our original lake view cottages harken back to simpler times. Families enjoy gathering here during the warm, lazy days of summer, to connect and make life-long memories – and they return year after year.  Our new Chalet units offer luxurious living in the peaceful forested part of our property.

Guests enjoy our seven park-like acres with a private sandy beach and a view across the lake to a nature reserve, with use of our kayaks, canoes and paddle boats on the lake. No gasoline engines are allowed on the lake, so you hear the sound of birds instead of motors!

This quiet corner of St. Mary Lake offers an unparalleled year-round destination: beautiful early springs, perfect summer vacations, tranquil autumn days and the cozy privacy of a winter’s night reading by our fireplaces. And don’t forget, the fish are here all year long!

Testimonials: What People Say about Salt Spring Web & Print Design!

Ken has done an amazing job setting up and monitoring our website. Our business has benefitted hugely! We really appreciate the fact that he responds almost immediately if we have any issues and needs his assistance. He also keeps us informed of any issues we should be aware of. He is very creative and knowledgeable. We absolutely recommend his services!! Bill & Marilyn Lea


« My professional experience with Kenneth was one of working with a true artist. Words that come to my mind to describe his approach to our work together are passionate, poetic, imaginative, creative, inventive, innovative, perceptive, intuitive, resourceful… Kenneth has an eye for detail and a vision of the whole. He is extremely precise and generous in his explanations, and very gifted at explaining the inner workings of a website, something he did for me in a particularly inspirational and precise way. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Kenneth. It was a true learning experience, and the solid foundations that he has helped me lay for my websites are giving me wings. » THANK YOU,
-Naomi Walker,

••••• Working with Kenneth was a sheer pleasure. He is responsive, patient and very knowledgeable. I love my new website ( and am getting more positive feedback and response than I ever imagined. Kenneth has a very fine sense of design and artistry along with an incredible mastery of web design, technical know-how, photoshop expertise, SEO workings and good people interface. He really took the time needed to shape the site to my sensibilities while steering it into a functional design with all of the bells and whistles needed. He also was generous in teaching me how to navigate the back-end myself and educating me on very important issues in web design. The design was fast and kept ahead of my generation of content. Everything was delivered on-time. Also, his fees are reasonable and so puts in reach an extremely high quality website for many of us who cannot afford so-called high end designers (who could not do anything more than Salt Spring Design). I highly recommend Salt Spring Web Design whole heartedly!
