We stayed here one night in April, it's a lovely house where you get the whole suite to use. We were able to make tea and enjoy our wine while here. My husband bought a Cigar box guitar from Tracy, the owner and he's very happy with it!

We spent two nights at this great B&B. The hosts were friendly, helpful and welcoming. We greatly enjoyed our tour of the art studio (Nancy paints and Tracy makes cigar box guitars!). Nancy made us the most wonderful waffles we have ever had! Topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream. We will definitely be back for another relaxing visit.

We only stayed one night at Firesign Art & Design on Quadra Island, but we had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back. Quadra itself is a forested bit of paradise, so quiet and peaceful!

It was comfortable, homey, creative, yummy... And above all, Nanci and Tracy were such generous hosts. By the time I left I felt like family. I took some painting lessons from Nanci and after about 40 years of trying out just about every art/craft *but* painting, was able to produce a painting - that I like!

We enjoyed Firesign B&B's hospitality while taking a five day Acrylic painting workshop. Our accommodations were comfortable and homey. The common area shared by the 3 guest rooms met our needs w/ TV, fridge and Microwave and a place to relax. Nanci is a great cook, we enjoyed excellent healthy breakfasts and lunches (lunch was included in the workshop). The... More

Stayed there for a 5 day painting workshop, could even paint all night if I wanted to in the studio. The workshop was very well done, with outdoor painting as well as some in the studio, with great lunches included. A very quiet, beautiful location with deer visiting the front yard.

We stayed in "off season" so, we were spoiled, had the entire B & B all to ourselves. Nanci was a great host, full of information. Good breakfasts. Great location, central to everything. Very nicely appointed, great place for a group to share the family room and kitchen etc.
