The 'Bee and Thistle Guest House' is truly a gem in a peaceful and pretty area of Vancouver. Thanks to the owners' gracious hospitality we felt at home as soon as we stepped through the door. Their beautiful home is individually decorated combining modern elements with carefully chosen antiques reflecting Lynn's eye for detail and Michael's warm-hearted nature. Lynn is... More

We stated for 3 nights and had a very relaxing time. Mike and Lynn helped us each day with possible itineraries and fun spots. Lynn handled reservations for us on the whale watching tour. Seemed very above and beyond. The rooms were comfortable and great bathrooms as well. The breakfast was fresh and beautiful, with great muffins and fresh coffee.... More

We really loved this B&B and our stay in the Lions Loft Suite. It was quiet, spacious and spotless with a well appointed kitchen. The room had its own balcony with views of downtown and the well established community where it is located. The bed, linens and pillows provided a very restful nights sleep. The breakfast was wonderful. We had... More

'Character Comfort Warmth' says The Bee & Thistle Guest House flyer. This lovely place is all of that and more. We certainly appreciated returning to such warmth and comfort during a 2 night stay when it snowed during our entire stay in Vancouver. From within the character filled house we looked out on a winter wonderland of gently falling snow.... More

My wife & I spent 2 nights in "Florence's Room" and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Bee & Thistle. The rooms are very nice, the house is in a convenient location, and the hosts (Lynn and Michael) were very friendly and extremely helpful. Everything about the Bee & Thistle is well thought out. The breakfast is really good with... More

We spent four nights at the Bee & Thistle Guest House staying one night in the Ivy room followed by three nights in the Molly room. The Ivy room is a large room with lovely bay windows (we called it the honeymoon suite) and a large bathroom. For those looking for space and more of a luxe factor, this room... More

Excellent B & B We recently spent 5 days in Vancouver staying in the Bee & Thistle in the Florence Room. Lynn and Michael are superb hosts providing very nice accommodation, excellent breakfasts and snacks (cookies). It was always nice at breakfast time meeting with fellow guests and comparing experiences. Lynn and Michael were always on hand to give assistance... More

We came to the Bee & Thistle based on the excellent reviews. We came here for our honeymoon, and based on others' experiences expected staff to be excited for us (the owner's daughter was congratulatory over the phone and mentioned that she would note that we were coming to celebrate our marriage). Unfortunately, there was no complimentary bottle of wine... More

Four of us (2 couples) from England stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise to Alaska. Our hosts, Lynn and Michael, were warm, friendly and paid great attention to our comfort. We stayed in Florence's room and Ivy's room, really comfortable beds and nicely appointed furnishings, and enjoyed the use of a private balcony from which we could see... More

Away from downtown, but extremely convenient to everything due to being very close to the transit system (which is very easy to use - being from TX, we don't use much of that). Michael and Lyn are a treat and super helpful and be sure you don't miss her cookies! We stayed in the Ivy Room which was absolutely delightful.... More
