The Wisteria is on the outskirts on Ganges, the main town on Saltspring Island. Most of our many visits here from Seattle have been by boat but this time we came by car and stayed at Wisteria. We (and our dog) were welcomed by Len and Beverly Brown and were made to feel right at home. Our cozy studio was... More

We visited Wisteria Guest House back in February, 2014 and I never quite around to writing a review but I thought it was only fair to Len and Bev that I write this review to encourage others to visit... better late than never! We were actually very lucky as we were the only ones staying in the guest house this... More

We spent two nice nights at Wisteria this July. The owners are very helpful, and recommended that we eat at a great local farm to table restaurant. The highlight, however, was Bev's incredible breakfasts. Not just large, but they were at the height of gourmet world. One talented lady!

The Wisteria is a warm unpretentious home. Our family that is now living apart met for a wonderful weekend of sailing with my brother (Lorenda Sailing). The rooms are comfortable and affordable; we were 5 in our group. Everyone completely satisfied and happy! The breakfast is memorable…..unexpected artful combinations made from only the freshest ingredients. Visually beautiful and delicious!

My friend and I stayed a long weekend at Wisteria B&B last July. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and fairly fancy. They were served at 9am and were a great opportunity to chat with other guests. The owners were also very nice and helpful. The location is walking distance to the Visitors Center in Ganges. However, I would recommend bringing... More

My first stay at a B & B and I would definitely go back. The highlight for sure is the breakfast and hospitality of our hosts. The rooms were quite comfortable and although a shares bathroom, each one is shared between only 2 rooms so it's not that big of a deal. The gardens are pretty and the location is... More

We spent the weekend at Wisteria, celebrating my husband 's 50th birthday. The breakfasts were outstanding and the high tea we had was a really special treat. Every mouthful was a little taste of heaven. How often to you get the opportunity to eat food prepared by a world class chef at incredibly reasonable prices. The hosts were so generous... More

My partner and I had a delightful one night stay at the Wisteria as part of a wine tour of Salt Springs and Vancouver Islands. Very tranquil setting, a few mins walk from Ganges with an awesome star filled sky to look up at on the walk back after dinner. Our room was charming and comfy, we slept like logs.... More

As many have said, the breakfast is excellent and the property is lovely. However,for the price, I found the accommodation quite rustic. The room felt damp and the furniture was very plain. Len was helpful and friendly, while Beverly was curt at times and not very friendly. Too busy making croissants, I guess.

I am only responding to this review in order to show how people see things differently. The previous reviewer stayed in the exact same room just a week before and found the room to be "delightful, with comfortable beds, lovely linens, and absolutely fabulous colors". At the same time, Beverly went from being "welcoming" to "not very friendly". Fortunately, most... More

The Wisteria Guest House provided possibly the best breakfast I've ever eaten at a B&B. The guest house is extraordinarily well run, and our room was delightful, with comfortable beds, lovely linens, and absolutely fabulous colors. Beverly and Len were welcoming to me and my 12-year-old daughter, and gave excellent suggestions for exploring and eating, absolutely lovely and professional. The... More
