I've stayed at a few B&Bs on Bowen over the years and this is one of the best. The cottage accomodation is beautifully finished, quiet and private. This is a great place for either a romantic getaway, or to do and do some writing, thinking or research. You can enjoy the secluded back part of the property, or you can... More

My husband and I booked a two night stay in the classic cottage for an Easter weekend getaway. Needless to say, we were very impressed with the food, the hospitality D'Anne provided, and the luxury of the cottage itself. The room was very clean and included everything we needed - a mini fridge, wine glasses, electric kettle, tea...there was even... More

My fiancee and I have stayed at Ardtara twice and will definitely be back. The breakfast and coffee are fantastic, the bed is comfortable, and the steam room/shower is unbelievable. Only comment would be that (for us at least) the wifi signal is very weak, but that may be a non-issue for other guests. In any event, we're adding Ardtara... More

We are glad you enjoyed your second stay with us and hope to see you again! Our wifi is supplied by Shaw and we are beholden to their technology and the weather at times plays a role- hopefully you rested more than worked :) More

My wife and I wife booked 2 nights at the Classic cottage for our one-anniversary and were really disappointed by Ardtara despite all the good reviews here. I believe the owner is new (her name is D'Anne) because the service was really bad compared to what other guests experienced on Tripadvisor. When we arrived on the day of our wedding... More

Our goal is always to make our guests happy. Most of our business is repeat and referrals from guests and we've been one of the busiest B&Bs on Bowen Island for the past six years. Some of your comments are correct and some might be a matter of cultural difference and misunderstanding. First and most importantly we are sorry your... More

My husband and I just spent one night at Ardtara and liked it very much. The cabin was tastefully decorated and cheerful, including the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast is worth mentioning; it was creative, delicious, and arrived piping hot. We would go back.

My husband and I stayed at this cottage for two nights recently. It was extremely peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful cottage, with heated floors in the bathroom. First time to the island, so our visit went well. We were looking for a oceanfront place, which this place did not have. There is no real oceanview either, which we did not mind... More

This is my second time at Ardtara and I love it. This place has become a haven for me. It is truly a luxury cottage experience as the classic cottage bathroom french door entry boasts a full soaker tub, lavender sea salts, and heated floors! This little cottage is spacious, equipped with flat screen for watching movies, and comfy chair... More

Excellent find on Bowen Island if you're looking for a quiet location with beautiful private cottages, a gourmet style breakfast and fabulous service. We rented both cottages and loved both of them in their unique design. The heated pool, heated bathroom floors and steam room were a treat as we stayed in a cooler month. The fireplace really came in... More

Very peaceful and private. Stayed two nights and will happily go again! The breakfast was not a continental juice and muffin, but a full, yummy gourmet spread. Only downside were the two small dogs..they jumped up on me and I don't really like dogs...but the Owner called them away and there were no more problems. The cottages were spacious and... More

We went across the ferry to Bowan Island with our old bikes and planned on cycling to this fabulous Bed and Breakfast to celebrate my birthday. Not realizing the upward battle and strain of such a hilly island we continued until one bike broke….then we walked the rest of the way….all uphill. We arrived desperate for something to drink and...
