I was bicycling Vancouver Island and Quadra Island and spent 2 nights at the Heron Guest House. It was one of the major highlights of the trip. I would sit on one of the several balconies overlooking the water and read a book. And Linda make a good, strong pot of coffee each morning. As second generation owner, she has... More

We had a lovely 3 days in the cottage at Heron House. The cottage was neat and tidy, the bed comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans etc. and the view INCREDIBLE. The deck quickly became our favourite spot for morning coffee as we enjoyed the steady stream of boats, the many birds working for their lunch,... More

This is a definite 'fixer-upper'. Linda is lovely but calling Heron House quirky is a kindness. The shower in our bathroom was terrible (but thankfully we were able to use the one downstairs). We were offered breakfast and thought it was a good idea since we had to meet our kayak group early but the 'wonderful fresh bread' was hard... More

We stayed in the Tideline Room here for 4 nights last month. The room was clean and comfy and best of all, right on the ocean. We listened to the waves every night. There was a small kitchenette with a microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker. No TV no radio no cell signal; which was actually great. With views like we... More

The volunteer staff from Australia & New Zealand were cheerful and helpful - Crissy prepared a huge, healthy breakfast for us 🍲🍳☕️!... More

There is a smell of septic in several places on the property. Deck railings falling down. Lack of smoke detectors. Broken chairs. I am sure the main guesthouse is fine but beware of the room under it. The worst bedding I have ever experienced, uncomfortable beds and no opening windows. There is a hot plate in there but not one... More

Unfortunately we could only stay one night at this fabulous B&B. The Heron Guest House is located right on the beach with a stunning view of the Strait of Georgia and the Rockey Mountains in the distance. Our room was clean and comfortable..

We rented the cottage for 3 nights and found it very difficult to pull ourselves away. We had planned on hiking parts of the island, but when sitting on the back porch, we just couldn't tear ourselves away form the terrific view. The cottage itself is fairly basic, but has all you'll need, including full bathroom, stove, fridge, coffee maker,... More

We just spent two of the most relaxing nights in the cottage at Heron House, I highly recommend staying here, the views of the ocean, and sunrise are unforgettable. The soaring eagles that swoop in front of the patio are incredible. Linda was warm and welcoming. Thank you for a great stay!

Our first time on Quadra Island and we hadn't planned a thing! Called around and Linda's friendly voice won us over. She stayed up for our late check-in and showed us to the cottage. Charming decor, warm lighting and a spacious layout invited us to relax and feel at home. The view was mesmerizing and the property enchanting. Our stay... More
