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.

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
