An incredible place to relax and feel right at home. Brenda was the greatest hostess - helpful and never intrusive. We stayed in the King suite - wonderful room with exterior entrance, well appointed ensuite. From the patio, the pond view was so tranquil. A wonderful weekend retreat while attending a wedding in the area. Definately would recommend it to... More

Can't say enough good about our stay with Jim and Brenda. Our room was beautiful, comfortable, and the hospitality made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Brenda went above and.

Thank you for sharing your home and family with us during out two night getaway. Wonderful place to stay just outside Sidney but worlds away from the City. Great biking directions. Amazing 200 mile loop drive directions around the coast and interior of southern Vancouver Island.

We arrived by ferry and were prepared for a wait for relatives to take us to the Alder Road Retreat. What a pleasant surprise it was to have Brenda show up to chauffeur us there. Our stay was all we expected and more. I'd love to be having the homemade granola for breakfast or snacking on the delicious cookies right... More

We came across the Alder Road Retreat quite by accident and it turned out to be one of the best discoveries we have made for accommodation. Our unexpected arrival close to 5pm was no problem for Brenda who welcomed us enthusiastically and set about making us comfortable in her beautiful B&B. Nothing was too much trouble and soon yummy cake... More

Near Victoria BC, but far enough away. We spent five nights in late April 2012. Our work was at the Airport, which is actually Sidney, which is about 40Km from Victoria. We were determined to NOT do Victoria- done that, we wanted to explore other areas without turning a week trip into a road rally. Alder Road retreat is a... More

We were looking for a B&B near Deep Cove because we were going to attend a wedding held at Muse Winery. We booked the Alder Road Retreat online from Manitoba, in order to be close to the Muse Winery. I was impressed with the quick response to my e-mail and found Brenda to be very helpful with directions and questions... More

Wonderful stay, at BnB, where there was no schedule. Could come and go as we pleased without being there on a schedule as we had our own outside entrance. Warm muffins greated our arrival, with cookies and juice to enjoy Breakfast of fresh scones and pastries and homemade jellies - what a treat. Quiet, peaceful, outside ambience made sitting outside...

Brenda made us feel at home. The rooms were outstanding. The food for mornings was very good--from breads to cake and serials. Over all a great Continental breakfast was very good. The serenity of the location and the country feeling was excellent. Just like Walden Pond. Thanks Brenda for making our stay a good memory.

How peaceful and beautiful! Beds were ultra-comfortable, accomodations and space were well appointed. B&B owner most gracious and accomodating, really made us feel we had a friend to advise us what else to do/see/etc. Pond nearby was a beautiful sight. Close to town. Nothing we could detect that was negative about any part of the experience. We're anxious to return... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alder Road Retreat is a peaceful, comfortable place to stay while visiting Victoria, Sidney and Vancouver Island. Located about six minutes from both the Swartz Bay ferry terminal and the Victoria airport, it is a great jumping off or jumping in spot when visiting the Island. The Retreat is a small B&B snuggled in a forested valley, next to a busy wildlife pond, in the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula. The gardens are beautiful; the view and ambiance are wonderful. The Retreat features a beautiful deck area, walking paths, lovely gardens and a spacious common area with fireplace. A delicious breakfast is served daily. ... more   less
