We lucked out and ended up staying with Shirley and Roger after another B&B mistakenly double booked. That owner had already arranged for us to stay at the Beacon instead. Turned out the mistake was much to our favor. We stayed in the Serenity bedroom which features a private bathroom and a queen bed. I think I had the best... More

We accessed Powell River on the BC Ferries Queen of Burnaby from Comox on Vancouver Island. The town appears to feature a paper mill but its biggest asset is its residents--in our case Shirley and Roger Randall, whose Beacon B & B looks out on theocean one hour from Comox. Their reception was unfailingly informative and super helpful as we... More

After finishing a hike on the Sunshine Coast Trail I wanted an oasis for the night before carrying on. I got lucky and there was room for one night. The room had every detail supplied, the house was open and friendly. Roger and Shirley were marvelous. I was also the delighted recipient of one of Shirley's massages. The breakfast the... More

Our stay at the Beacon was most enjoyable. Both Shirley and Roger were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was a feast for the eyes and a treat for the palate. So glad we stopped here for the night. Fortunately for us the other couple staying there was delightful.

Wonderful friendly couple who own and run this lovely b+b by the sea. A short 25 min walk into Powell River for dinner. Excellent breakfast. Beautiful balcony view over the sea which is just across the road.

Everything about our 4 day stay was wonderful. Very comfortable and clean bed and room with every detail provided. The living room, dining area and deck overlooking the ocean were lovely. The view is amazing and the beach below is sandy at the high tide mark, rocky out further. Breakfast was so delicious and different each morning, beautifully presented. The... More

Shirley and Roger are absolutely amazing hosts. Their attention to detail is incredible! To say nothing of the stunning view and delicious breakfasts. Make sure to check out the beach that is right below.....we did not discover it until half way through our stay, but it is beautiful as well!
