We spent our second Labour Day long weekend at this location and are already looking forward to our next visit. We were again amazed at the beauty of the place and the excellence of the accommodations and meals served. The lake was still at a very pleasant temperature for swimming. Janice and Gordie are outstanding hosts and great storytellers. Make... More

I stayed for just 2 days but by the time it came to leave, I wanted to stay the whole week. The rooms were wonderful, large and spacious. The rooms are full of light with a beautiful view of the lake. Gordie was very helpful providing information on activities and sightseeing. There's a lot to do around Nanaimo, but one... More

Long Lake Waterfront B&B offers everything you could wish for in accommodation - charm, attentive hosts, a delicious breakfast, lovely residential setting and lots of opportunities for recreation on the lake. Our spacious room was very well appointed. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and that warmth and friendliness never waivered throughout our stay. We highly recommend Long Lake Waterfront... More

Gordie and Janice were lovely hosts and could not have been more helpful and friendly. My wife and I were only there for one night so we were not able to enjoy all the facilities that were on hand, but we had a lovely breakfast, and the room was beautiful. We wish we could have stayed for much longer but... More

If you're going to the northern part of Vancouver Island, this is a perfect way station ... luxurious accommodations with outstanding, gourmet-quality breakfasts. The property sits on a steep hillside above a spring-fed lake that is typically warmer than the ambient air temperature (thus making for good swimming) and has a number of beautiful decks going down to the water's...

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at this B&B and we loved every minute of it. Gordi and Janice were very welcoming and helpful hosts. Breakfast was fresh and delicious, and we enjoyed visiting with both our hosts and other guests as we enjoyed it. We hope to stay here again on our next visit to the island.

We stayed in Madrona suite for 2 nights in August. This is a very large suite with a jetted tub and the view of the lake. I will not repeat the accolades found on Tripadvisor - the hosts are friendly, helpful etc. One tip I can offer and this is just my opinion: don't waste your time sightseeing in Nanaimo... More

We stayed two nights here in July. We stayed in the spacious Lakeside Suite which had a great view of the lake and a nice terrace to sit on. There's even a huge tree in front of the suite with a resident eagle! The owners were very nice and helpful. We got great advice for planning a day trip. My... More

We recently spent four days at this B&B and this was no doubt the best B&B ever in our own experience. Everything is fine. Starting of course from the owners, Gordi and Janice. They are always ready to help you but never obtrusive. Breakfast time was a very pleasant experience; there are only few people at any time and this... More
