We stayed in the driftwood suite, smallish but comfortable for two people. It was clean,bright and had all we needed. The breakfast fixings were so good, just wish that the fresh baked treats were provided each day of the stay. Tannis and Paul were friendly and very helpful. We would definitely recommend Skipping Stones

Second time staying, hopefully many more to come. Paul and Tanis are fantastic hosts and the B&B couldn't be more peaceful and welcoming. Can't beat the baking! The location is ideal and the view is sublime, making Skipping Stone the perfect spot to create a Salt Spring escape. Thanks!

The Skipping Stone B&B exceeded our expectations. The hosts, Tannis and Paul, are thoughtful and kind, and the morning scones are delicious! We particularly enjoyed the peaceful location and the evening sunshine on the quiet beach. The suite is very clean and the view will make you want to extend your stay. We hope to visit again!

It was great to meet you and have you as our guests! We were so glad to offer some respite from the busy urban life ... and to see you take advantage of the warm(ish) swimming therapy the ocean offers up. We hope you can come again soon! ~ Tanis and Paul More

I recently spent a weekend at the Skipping Stones Bed and Breakfast on Saltspring Island, BC. I cannot find enough words to express my delight at this very hidden gem on Saltspring.

Skipping Stones B&B was perfect for a 2 night retreat with a friend. We stayed in the smaller of the two rooms and it was excellent for the 2 of us. There were two very comfortable single beds which could be put together for a king sized bed. The bathroom was a really good size and was brand new with... More

So glad to hear that your time here was relaxing and re-charging! That is the healing power of this place ... the sound of the waves lulls you to sleep and the breeze off the ocean awakens your senses ... great that you explored the beach, walking along to the Canal too - its another world.

The location, room and view are excellent. Service by owners second rate. Be aware the scones and muffins talked about in these reviews occurs only on first day. Second day is granola and previously frozen bread. Owners made no attempt to communicate with us after reception to the point of not being available at checkout to give us a receipt.... More

So sorry that your expectation of our B&B was not what we offer ... the suites provide a very private setting, where guests have space and freedom to do their own thing, and we are on hand if needed. The en-suite breakfast - of home-made granola, several fruits, yogourt, bread from a well-known on-island baker, milk, cream, juice, coffee and... More

My family and I had an absolutely amazing time at Skipping Stone Beach. Paul & Tannis were such wonderful hosts, the Starfish Suite has the best view anyone can ask for. Serene and quiet in the morning, with a fiery, majestic & inspiring sunset view on the water in the evening. The 'private' pebble beach access was a major plus,... More

First off, the owners are friendly, helpful, and extremely courteous. The rooms are well-serviced, there's fresh bread delivered from upstairs every now and then, the suites have walk-in showers, televisions, radios, cooking utensils, cutlery, going far beyond everything that you could possibly need in a proper and functional hotel room. Beds are exceptionally comfortable, and the pillows as well, provided... More
