Fabulous stay, comfortable room with lovely private deck. Very accommodating hostess, and helpful about things to do and where to go. Breakfasts excellent although a bit large for what we are used to.

The room at Deer Fern is really spacious with a great view - it was the best night's sleep I had in a whole month in BC! The balcony with a view of Vancouver Island and hummingbird's is amazing. Kathi's breakfasts are also fantastic, we had fruit pancakes and an apple and blueberry crumble - memorable! It's more like a... More

Breakfast with the hummingbirds, one of my favourite things as well. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We are even more delighted that you had a good nights sleep and enjoyable breakfast. Two things of the many that we feel are important to guests. Thank-you Your Innkeeper ~ Kathi More

My husband and I stayed here only for a night. We were very lucky to find this place at the last minute. The room is well appointed with high quality linens.

Thank-you for staying with us. Sometimes, finding little hidden venues are delightful. Your dinner spot was one of those pleasures. Never a day goes by that we don't appreciate the quiet here and the view, I am pleased you did as well. Perhaps our paths will cross again. Your Innkeeper ~ Kathi More

My husband & I had the good fortune to have booked this B & B based on the reviews we read on trip advisor. There are a number of great looking B & Bs on the Sunshine Coast and the decision on where to book was a challenge. In the end we selected the Deer Fern. I cannot imagine that... More

I don't usually write reviews, but felt compelled. Our 2 night stay at Deer Fern B&B far surpassed our expectations. For the very reasonable price we were expecting budget accommodations with no frills, but we were pleasantly surprised. We were warmly greeted by Kathi the Innkeeper upon arrival. Even though we showed up early our room was ready. Kathi showed... More

Thank-you for staying with us and noticing the finer details, we pride ourselves with many frills. All tucked away, ready for my guests to experience. We enjoy finer things when we travel and bring those ideas to our BB. The shower head for tall people is just a small sample of our commitment to travelers. Sitting on the deck on... More

Not only was the room completely satisfactory - private entrance, comfortable, tastefully appointed, immaculate, a great view of the sea (alright, the bedside lamps were a little low for one who likes to read in bed), but the breakfasts were absolutely scrumptious. And I mean absolutely.

best b&b ever. If you have any problems it must have been your problem in the first place. Kathy treats you like royalty. The view and food is unbelievable. Great advice about in town restaurants and activities along the sunshine coast. If you want to relax and enjoy nature at its finest this is a summer b&b location for you.

This B and B is nestled in the woods with an ocean view. Nice room, charming hosts, delicious breakfast, lovely linens, heated tile floors in the bathroom were most welcome as it was unusually cold for June with a big wind storm......enchanting.

It is always great experience staying at the Deer Fern. Kathi is a wonderful host, and her attention to detail and special little touches really set this B&B apart from the crowd.
