Everything at this B&B was perfect. The couple running the place truly go out of their way to make sure that everything is perfect for your stay. I especially enjoyed the exceptional breakfasts each morning that were complete with fresh fruit, home-ade granola, yogurt, tea, baked assortments along with a full plate of hot breakfast. They also made the best... More

My husband and I had the great pleasure of spending a week at the Markham House recently. Having never stayed at a B&B before, we were not quite sure what to expect. What a wonderful experience it was! The grounds were so beautiful. We stayed in the Honeysuckle cottage and our accommodations were perfect. Having our own private hot tub... More

Where to start... It's hard to stay "local" and have a wonderful experience in November, but Lyall and Sally made it happen for us. After reading all the reviews on TripAdvisor, we jumped all in and reserved the Honeysuckle Cottage for our mini-vacation getaway anniversary trip. We arrived late afternoon in mid-November and when we got there we discovered Markham... More

The Honeysuckle Cottage is a wonderful place for a romantic getaway. All the details are there: the external hot tub, the fire and the candles, the nice cosy living room and breakfast table in front of a huge window facing the forest, the cute bedroom full with small details that make it a “home” from the start… Breakfast was delivered...

A beautiful oasis that is close to lots of beaches, sites and of course Victoria. The flower gardens are stunning. The house is large and welcoming with some good choices of clean, comfortable and tasteful rooms. The highlight for me were the breakfasts - YUMMY! The proprietors, Sally and Lyall, are gracious, fun and well informed about the area. I... More

We spent three lovely nights with Sally+ Lyall. They were the best hosts we've encountered in many years. Along with top flight accomodations and exceptional breakfast, they were quite lovely. Very helpful in regards to planning our outings and offering precise directions. We were very pleased with the recommendations to various sights and eateries. The experience at MARKHAM HOUSE will...

My husband and I just got back from our third stay at the Honeysuckle Cottage and it was just as relaxing and perfect as our previous stays. The cottage is our little home away from home and we could not ask for better hosts. Sally and Lyall are so accommodating and the breakfasts are truly the best we have had!... More

We just had the most relaxing anniversary stay at the cottage. Cozy, comfortable and spacious it had everything we needed. I was impressed but not surprised to see that every detail was thought through and prepared for the guests to enjoy. Set of lovely ( quality) wine glasses for indoors and a set of plastic ones for the hot tub.... More
