This is my second visit to the inn and wish I could have stayed more than the one night there. Beautiful and quaint accommodations. Love the action with the ferries going through Active Pass. Dinner was good, although the fish was a bit overcooked. Jody at the front desk was very warm and helpful. Looking forward to another visit.

We stayed one night in a ground floor, ocean front suite - gorgeous! Views of ferry traffic heading to and from Active Pass right off our patio. All the amenities one could ask for especially if spending a few days - in suite laundry, full kitchen, free wifi, a heated patio with out door fireplace, spa tub and barbecue. It... More

The attention to detail and the amenities offered in each room is amazing.We had a ground floor oceanfront room with a beautiful view, patio, lounge chairs on the grass and a local deer who wandered up to our door one evening.

We didn't stay here, but we did get a couple's massage during our honeymoon and it was wonderful! The massage area was in a beautiful and relaxing garden area, and my husband was so relaxed he actually fell asleep. We then had some pizza from their outdoor dining area, and were able to just take in the view of the... More

We spent 2 night at the Inn, in a waterfront villa (in reality it is more of a set of of 2 story townhouses , we had a bottom room). The room was extremely well appointed , super clean, with full kitchen, including wine fridge, an outside grill and fireplace and jacuzzi. Spacious bathroom with modern shower , king size... More

Hi GM, Thanks for staying with us, and we hope you'll get the chance to visit our little slice of West Coast paradise again. You're quite right that we don't have a 24 hour desk, as we are a small Inn, but our lovely restaurant staff who stay late are well trained in helping Inn guests with anything they might... More

My wife and two children, ages 16 and 14, were eager to get away for a quick two-day weekend trip to Galiano. Have never been to the southern gulf islands but was curious about this facility. From the moment we arrived, on bikes I might add from the ferry terminal, we were immediately greeted by the manager. After a quick... More

Amazing view from the room. This is definitely a place to relax during the weekend! All rooms are fully equipped with kitchen, hot tub in the patio and barbecue. The shower is also really great! They also serve breakfast in the restaurant and it's a place I recommend!

We had a great getaway weekend with friends, staying at villa suite 19- very relaxing & comfortable with beautiful view of the ocean. We enjoyed a great dinner in the hotel restaurant & took in the sights of Galiano as suggested by Conny, our gracious host. Would love to come back in cooler weather to make use of the fireplace...
