We went to Chemainus and we were so lucky and blessed to stay at A Small World Bed n Breakfast with John and Lynne. We had royalty rooms which is all you will get here. Every step you take you see another miniature work made by Lynne. It is extremely quiet you can almost hear the dolls in their miniature...

Oh my goodness, this is the cutest B & B EVER!!! The house is filled with miniature room boxes, hand-made by Lynne. We were greeted so warmly by John who has the best sense of humor. Before you could even put your bags down, you were captivated and drawn to studying all the miniature houses with Lynne while John added... More

We have had season tickets to the Theatre in Chemainus and usually drive the 90 minutes home or stay in the Best Western in town. We wanted to try something different so booked into this charmer. We're glad we did. John and Lynn are delightful - love the miniatures. The accommodation is complete, including a very private set up with... More

This place came highly recommended to us and it did not disappoint. The room was great, quiet, very comfortable and air conditioned! The bathroom was fully stocked and no detailed missed. We had a fabulous breakfast and enjoyed the lovely gardens. The miniature displays are so fun to look at. Great hospitality and go and enjoy this little gem!

The most friendly town and the nicest couple!! We travelled around BC for 2 weeks and our stay with Lynn and John were the best - filled with great hospitality and a lot of warmth. We laughed and talked and laughed even more while having breakfast. I recommend this place with all my heart!

Warm and welcoming hosts, excellent breakfast, beautiful place and rooms with every need met (in bed reading light, bathroom nightlight, clock, hangars, Kleenex, shampoo and hairdryer, lots of towels and facecloths, very comfy beds, own entrance, separate guest sitting area) Unbeatable value.

We provide the amenities but our guests are what makes the house a home and people like you are why we continue to B&B after all these years. More

Great company rooms and food were top notch. Would definitely recommend and will return one day. The hosts made us feel as if we were at home. Beds were comfortable. I really think this 200 character crap sucks big time I am the one who should determine what I wish to not some damn program

A Small World B&B was our best stay during our 2 moth trip in Canada! As we rang the bell spontaneously on a Sunday night in September 2013 we were welcomed very friendly by John and Lynne.
