Chefs Across The Water At Salt Spring Island’s Hastings House

Sprawled over lush green acreage on stunning Salt Spring Island waterfront, Hastings House Country House Hotel is one of the southern gulf islands’ most unique properties. Built more than seven decades ago, this 11th century Sussex-style home features guest rooms, spa facilities and endless gardens to lose one’s self in. With a neighbouring abundance of wine makers, farmers and food artisans, Hastings House is also becoming well known for its sumptuous dining options featuring locally-minded fare.
