My husband and I recently spent 5 weeks in the cottage attached to the Island Estuary Bed and Breakfast, while visiting our son and his family who live in Ladysmith. We can't speak highly enough of the welcome we received from Ted, who was running the place on his own while Lynda was away for the summer. We managed to... More

My wife and I recently celebrated our 15th anniversary and were looking for a nice place away. We stopped in at Island Estuary B&B in July to check it out and were impressed so we came back for a 3 night stay. The breakfasts were fantastic! Ted accommodated us with special requests (my wife is gluten intolerant). He was a... More

The inn is for sale and it shows in how it is kept up. First your room is not made up when you stay for 2 nights. When i came back in the afternoon and asked the owner why the bed was not made he said he does not make up the room for the second night. This was a... More

My friend and I booked two rooms at the Estuary B & B for our 3 day stay in Ladysmith . It is a stunning home in an exceptionally beautiful setting. We loved the views, the feeling of privacy and the graciousness of our host Ted (who was on duty alone as Lynda was on assignment cooking for a fishing... More

Our family and friends had a fantastic time visiting Vancouver Island last month with the highlight being our stay at the Island Estuary in Ladysmith. The rooms were immaculate. We loved the modern design and tastefully decorated rooms. Lynda and Ted were our gracious hosts with the warmest hospitality you can imagine. Lynda created scrumptious breakfasts for us every morning... More

The property, inside and outside, felt like it popped out of a travel magazine. The hosts, Lynda and Ted, welcomed us as family. The views were breath-taking and the breakfast deserved a "Five Star" rating! We had such a great time and even the teenagers with us wanted to stay longer. We hope to return to Island Estuary B &...

As seasoned B & B'ers, it is without a doubt that Lynda & Ted have found their niche as consummate B & B hosts! They are super friendly, personable & very gracious people. Unfortunately, Lynda had a prior commitment the next morning, so couldn't join us for breakfast, but that being said, kudos to Ted for taking time to put... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Lynda and Ted are excellent hosts and make you feel like you have known them for ages. The location was perfect as only a minute to the highway but still very quiet and peaceful, and very beautiful. Breakfasts were great and they were very accommodating to meet my schedule. I will definetely stay... More

We stayed at the Island Estuary B&B for two nights and were pleasantly surprised with the location, quiet clean room and excellent gourmet breakfast. Lynda and Ted were great hosts. We will be staying again on our next trip to Ladysmith.

This place is great, Ted and Lynda are the consummate hosts. Flexible and accommodating in every way, they welcomed us into their B&B and we felt right at home. The Inn has a fantastic contemporary living space with great views of the ocean bay and ever changing tidal flats below – enchanting, peaceful and mesmerizing. It is comfortable, modern and... More
