WELCOME TO BAMBOO GROVE

Surrounded by arbutus and fir forest dappled with hillside meadows, and looking west from high above the inland waterway between Salt Spring and Vancouver Island, Bamboo Grove is a retreat in the forest, a place of memory and imagination, a sacred space in which to shed one’s worries, breathe deeply, and recover balance. Our custom home is an elegant West Coast contemporary on 5 acres, built in 2005 that offers absolute privacy, sensational ocean vistas, adjacent to majestic forests with rambling trails for hiking, or biking.

There is a thing in me that dreamed of trees,
A quiet house, some green and modest acres
A little way from every troubling town,
A little way from factories, schools, laments.
I would have time, I thought, and time to spare,
With only streams and birds for company,
To build out of my life a few wild stanzas.
And then it came to me, that so was death,
A little way away from everywhere.
There is a thing in me still dreams of trees.
But let it go. Homesick for moderation,
Half the world’s artists shrink or fall away.
If any find solution, let him tell it.
Meanwhile I bend my heart toward lamentation
Where, as the times implore our true involvement,
The blades of every crisis point the way.
I would it were not so, but so it is.
Who ever made music of a mild day?

~ Mary Oliver

The Perfect Week

We spent a perfect week at the Bamboo Groove, even in rainy November. The house is gorgeous and comfortable. It was perfect for walking our dog and for mountain biking as Channel Ridge trails run right behind the house. Elliot is a gracious and knowledgeable host. I have no hesitation in recommending Bamboo Groove. We can hardly wait to return. Thanks Elliot!

Home away from home…only better!!

Bamboo Grove, with a spectacular view of the ocean, backing onto hiking trails, and in close proximity to the island’s attractions, offers a private paradise, perfect for hosting guests, or curling up quietly on the deck or by the fireplace. We were thrilled to be able to bring our little dog with us, too. Eliot was available for any questions we might have had, yet, was entirely respectful of our space. We can’t wait to return to The Grove! _springcynthia | tripadvisor.ca
