We stayed two nights at A Scented Garden B&B and were very pleased with the large, beautiful room, complete with jacuzzi. Especially nice was the fact that the very hospitable hosts thought of everything to make our stay extra special, from cookies and tea available on arrival, a delicious breakfast, including fresh fruit, and endless good coffee.

Spent a total of three nights here, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Island Thyme room, which was spacious and with a great en suite with a double whirlpool tub. The breakfasts were well laid out, very tasty, and served with pleasant advice about the local attractions, with recommendations of the fine dining establishment in the area.... More

I loved every moment of my stay at A Scented Garden. From the moment I walked in front gate, (where I was greeted by a friendly Calico) was wonderful. The owners were friendly, the breakfasts delicious, the rooms bright and cozy and the location was perfect. I highly recommend A Scented Garden and can't wait to go back.

Thank you for the lovely review. The Mountainview is a bright and comfortable room. We strive to make our guests' stays memorable.

We had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful B and B. Lovely gardens, very comfortable room with great amenities. Michaela and Rick, very friendly and nice folks and their cat is a delight. We hope to return again, as there is still so much to see and explore in the surrounding areas of Chemainus.

My friend and I have stayed at The Scented Garden twice while attending the Chemainus Theatre. We love the flowers and the friendly calm atmosphere. We will certainly return next year. The breakfast was fresh and healthy and the location was ideal for visiting the town or walking on the beach.
