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

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

Gordie and Janice are gracious hosts. They provided directions and recommendations, made reservations, offered discounts, and shared a lot of local history and knowledge. After a day of sightseeing, it was so wonderful to return to the lake and relax on the dock, swim, or soak in the hot tub. We stayed in the Madrona suite, which was very comfy.... More

I have lived in Nanaimo, so am familiar with what is here. Coming back from Alberta to visit family and friends, I wanted to try something new and broaden my horizons. What an amazing place. But best of all was the hospitality extended by my hosts. Gordon gave me an exclusive Sea Doo ride around the lake and even emailed... More

Gordie and Janice are wonderful hosts; they made us feel really welcome and had answers to all of our questions of the surrounding area. The lakeside setting is relaxing and quiet with gorgeous views from all rooms. The food was wonderful as was the conversations over breakfast. We will definitely come back!
