I have just returned from a week-long stay at the Gingerbread Cottage, and as always, it was amazing. I've been coming here from Toronto every year for ten years, and every visit is memorable. The location is excellent, a two-minute walk to the water and the wonderful scenic path along Dallas Road, with its gorgeous many-shades-of-blue view of the water... More

We had actually booked 2 nights at another B&B, where we were accidentally overbooked. They in turn booked us at Vanessa's. It turned out to be a great thing. We really enjoyed staying with Vanessa and Dean. They were both very friendly and welcoming. The location is nice, pretty close to downtown and very close to Ogden Point. But the... More

My husband and I stayed there for four nights august 9 -12. Vanessa and Dean were the hostess with the mostest. Vanessa went out of her way to accommodate my gluten free needs, with lovely fresh scones, gluten free granola, which was to die for!!!! But the best was the warm blueberry cake, she let us take the leftovers with... More

My girlfriend and I just got home from the Gingerbread Cottage House and it was an incredible stay. The breakfast is exactly what everyone on here is making it out to be. Awesome assortment of pastries and fruit. Vanessa and Dean are very warm and hospitable people. It was a short walk in all directions to get to everything we... More

Vanessa is one classy lady. It was a treat to stay at her cottage. In addition to accommodating our gluten-free needs, the food was delicious. She offered fabulous tour advice and helped make our vacation special and memorable.

I went there twice , once in 2008n and another in 2012. I had the best experience there from Vanessa's hospitality to Deans knowledge of the area led me to have the best week away from home I have ever experience.

I came to stay at Vanessa's with my mother for the weekend. We showed up little early, as we had taken an earlier ferry. Vanessa was so wonderful in allowing us to check in early, had a cozy house, and gave us directions. Her breakfast was beyond fabulous and the best part of our trip. Very welcoming and comforting and... More

I have stayed at the Gingerbread Cottage regularly since I discovered it online about 10 years ago. I have stayed by myself, with my husband and with my children. Vanessa and Dean have become friends and we would not dream of a trip to Vancouver Island without staying at the Cottage. The location is wonderful, within walking distance of both... More

I felt compelled to write a review after reading the "double booked" one. We have stayed at The Gingerbread Cottage a few times and have always enjoyed our stay. We are a family of five and Vanessa made sure we all had our own rooms, we felt very comfortable, and well fed. Walking distance to downtown and the ocean. Unfortunately... More

The owners Vanessa and Dean bend over backwards to please their clientele. The breakfasts Vanessa serves are three course, homemade strudel, buns, bread.....fresh made every morning. Yogurt, cheeses, fruits, I could go on and on. Then comes the hot breakfast. I have stayed in many B&B's and have NEVER experienced such delicious gourmet food.....seafood omelettes, crepes, fresh bacon or sausages,... More
