We stayed 7 nights at this B & B. Breakfasts were a real treat. Every morning it was something different and it was always delicious. The room was ultra clean and spacious. As a bonus we also had a small kitchenette with the best mini fridge I've ever seen in any hotel or B & B. The hosts were outstanding... More

We wondered where we were going, through residential areas, (thank you Satnav!) until we arrived, then wow! What a location. Great facilities, and the most genial and helpful hosts one could wish for. If only we could have stayed for more than 3 nights. We really hope to be back some day.

I stayed here for two nights and three full days. Janice and Gordie were so amazing. They served something different every morning for breakfast and sat around and chatted with all the guests. I stayed in the Lake front room. It's on its own floor with its own patio space, king sized (very comfy) bed and a short flight of... More

This bed and breakfast is a real gem. We spend our honeymoon in the honeymoon suite and the room is amazing- a real huge suite with a jacuzzi and from your bed you have a stunning view of the lake. When you step outside it only takes a few steps to reach the lake where you can relax on a... More

We stayed here two nights in the summer and would definitely go back. The place is great - right on the lake, it's a little piece of heaven. The property is really well maintained and the hosts are friendly and helpful. You have a deck with access to a canoe, and kayaks. It was such a relaxing getaway - you... More

We were so lucky to have booked here with Janice and Gordie. Both were fantastic hosts and offered great ideas for our 2 night stay. Going to Coombs was a highlight and seeing the goats on the roof of the shops. I was also directed to Fengy Boutique and that caused my credit card to get a work out- well... More

This is the second time that we have stayed with the owners, Janice and Gordie, within the last year and it won't be our last. The rooms are wonderfully outfitted, the location is great and Janice and Gordie are perfect hosts.

The B&B, the host, the breakfast, everything was just excellent!! Absolutely the best place to stay in Nanaimo! I like most is the sunset. Want to go back in summer time as it was still cold when I was there.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this fantastic B&B last week. We were so taken by the hospitality of Gordie and Janice. Our room was gorgeous - large and immaculate, the breakfasts were first class, the location was perfect. We would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

Amazing B&B location and superb hospitality. The rooms are fantastic, Janice and Gordie are so friendly and hospitable, and breakfast was so tasty each morning. Nanaimo is a great location, so much to see and do locally and a short drive away.
