We stayed for two nights and was very happy with the accommodations. The breakfast is "on your own" with stuff provided in the small kitchen in your room which we like sometimes. Virginia & Don are very gracious hosts and met our every need. Driveway a bit steep and parking is a bit tight, we chose to back down into... More

We stayed at this most relaxing of locations for two nights, but if we had been more flexible with work would have changed our return tickets and extended our stay. The hosts warm welcome and delicious fresh bread and muffins set the tone. Sit on the absolutely tranquil balcony and watch the humming birds with a backdrop of the Juan... More

We are glad that you were able to enjoy your stay with us. The hummingbirds are very active right now and we haven't seen so many at our feeders and flying about in the gardens as this year. It's relaxing just to sit and watch them flit about. More

Virginia and Don made our stay very enjoyable, they go out of their way. Great fresh baked bread and muffins make this place enjoyable, along with a well-stocked fridge. Great views of the Strait and we saw a deer and hummingbirds in the backyard. Lots of blackberries when we were there. Good drives and hikes are close at hand. I... More

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay! We apparently make our garden comfortable for the wildlife too! Glad you saw our resident buck who helps trim the vegetation for us. The herons (could be the same heron) have been spending a lot of time flying past in the evening lately and even landed on our roof once... More

My husband and I spent one night there. What a wonderful rustic hideaway! The room was cozy, with a lot of little surprise touches. Breakfast in the room was great! Loved the homebaked muffins and bread. Loved the view of the water. Would recommend for sure!

Stayed here for two nights and it was fantastic so nice having the balcony to sit out on for meals. Breakfast was amazing plenty to keep you going, we espcially loved the homeade bread! There is a BBQ available to use which was handy as any restaurants are a drive away. Very relaxing and enjoyed watching the hummingbirds in the... More

We spent our Xmas Holiday (Dec 24-Dec26, 2011) in Heron`s Rest B&B. We liked it very much. The suit is huge, with a full size kitchen, dining-living room. Breakfast was perfect, everything was in the fridge or the cup-board, as promised. A big deck (balcony) opens from the living room, you can listen the waves from it. Very nice view... More

This B&B is a bit out of the way, but commands a nice view. We arrived on a rainy day and were concerned with the slipperiness of the steps going down from the driveway to the B&B entrance. We stayed in the heron's roost room. The rooms were tidy and the facilities (kitchen, TV etc) were all working and modern.... More

We are a very small B&B with only two rooms. We live on the property and are available 24/7 for our guests. It is very unfortunate that our guests did not let us know about their discomfort. We have 100% cotton sheets available and would have been very happy to have changed the bedding - regardless of time of day... More

Out of town, set up on a hill, not secluded, but it has a great wide open view of the ocean & mountains. Even the smaller "room" we stayed in is really a studio, with a small kitchenette and a big bathroom. Lots of items for self-serve breakfast, including fresh eggs. Garden and bird feeders attract lots of hummingbirds, enjoyed... More
