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.

I really enjoyed staying at this location. Breakfast was good, the owners are really nice and Gordy offered me a ride on the lake with the seadoo in the morning before I go to work ! What a best way to start a day, best moment on the island ever !! Thanks for everything :-)

It was very difficult to find and the directions given were not good. It was a lovely quiet place and more like being in the country and the suite, it was more than a room was very cosy, private and had a beautiful view over the lake. We arrived on a very wet february night so did not take advantage... More

We were planning to go to Seattle but went to Nanaimo with no plans, just took the ferry and cruised around. This was a stupid decision but turned out to be great thanks to Gordie and Janice. We had no place to stay overnight and we were thinking about sleeping in the car. Fortunately they had a cancellation and let... More

Our stay at Long Lake Waterfront B&B was amazing. Arrived in Nanaimo the Sunday before Thanksgiving and decided to stay at a B&B before heading to Tofino the following day. We were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to the Madrona Suite dubbed the "honeymoon suite" and it was easy to see why. It was a romantic suite with spectacular... More

We had an over night stay at this beautiful B+B on our way home. The grounds around the house and the dock and hot tub down by the lake are gorgeous. The suite was comfortable, clean and very well appointed. Breakfast was eggs Benedict that were delicious. Great conversation with the host and other guests. So much better than staying... More

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
