My traveling companion and I stayed at Holmesdale House for several days in early fall. What a great, comfortable experience. Cassandra was a wonderful hostess, and the full hot breakfasts were divine. We have stayed in two other B&B establishments in BC, and Holmesdale House was by far the best. As avid Geocachers, we were in geo-heaven as well with... More

We stayed three days at Holmesdale and really appreciated the breakfast, the comfort, the hospitality and the service. We felt very much like at home and did some beautiful trips in the Cowichan Area.

We had three nights at Holmesdale House following a family wedding in August further North up the Island. Cassandra was very welcoming and suggested some lovely driving routes to beautiful places and interesting visits in the Cowichan area, which is a gorgeous place to explore and relax in. She is also a fantastic cook - the breakfasts really were gourmet.... More

Stayed there for 2 nights in August. The room was comfy and big, the food was great and our host was helpful and sweet. It was in a good location - 15 minute drive from tons of wineries and Cowichan Bay. I'd recommend Averill Creek and Blue Grouse wineries. Also, take the time to go to Genoa Bay Cafe for... More

Holmesdale House Bed & Breakfast is a quaint historic house tucked behind hedges and greenery providing the feel of being alone in the country while quite close to the great little shopping area of Duncan. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable. The owner Cassandra made us feel very much at home. Sitting on the deck in the shade was lovely.... More

This was our first ever B&B experience & we couldn't have had a better introduction! Holmesdale House was lovely. The historic home is quaint, quiet & very comfortable indeed. Breakfasts were creative & delicious -(coffee was fabulous!!!) and Cassendra provided a wealth of excellent historic and touristy info for us during our stay. Would definitely recommend Holmesdale House B&B!
