I should have reviewed this back in Sept when we stayed. So sorry readers... This bed and breakfast is great ! It's very nice and very clean. The location on the lake could not have been better, nor the comfort and wonderful breakfast that Janice and Gordie prepared. Janice and Gordie were very accommodating hosts. I felt like I was...

Rarely does a vacation destination live up to its advertised pictures. This amazing B&B SURPASSED them. Walking into the large suite off the dining room took my breath away. Way over the top elegant, tasteful - right out of House Beautiful. Every time I needed something, there it was. They have thought of everything. The jetted tub was the longest... More

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by our friendly host Gordie, who led us to our room throiugh the "Grotto", a lovely lit walled rock garden. We had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in the Arbutus Suite at this beautiful B&B overlooking Long Lake. Our room was very spacious, clean and cosy and had a separate area with a... More

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

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.
