I've stayed at Jupiter Ranch a handful of times as there is no place else like it!! The rooms are green friendly and so beautifully designed. In the mornings, we were offered a petit-dejeuner which included lovely croissants, yogourt parfaits and fresh fruit. And to top things off, I enjoyed my tea overlooking the expansive view of the ranch and... More

Jupiter Ranch was a delightful surprise. We found it via Tripadvisor, and didn't really know much about the B.C. Islands, let alone Gabriola. Our plan was to kayak somewhere beautiful off the western Canada coastline, and after a lot of research, we chose Gabriola because of it's closer proximity to Nanaimo than many other Islands along Vancouver Island's east coast....

I am not a fan of traditional B&Bs so Jupiter Ranch was love at first sight via the website. With its contemporary architecture and decor (no flower bedspreads or dried flowers in sight!), fantastic in-room amenities that go beyond the usual offerings and superb gourmet breakfasts it really does not get much better than this! Sylvie, the host, offers a... More

We chose Jupiter Ranch based on Trip Advisor reviews and our high expectations were exceeded! Everything we read in the reviews was 100% accurate and so much more. Sylvie is an amazingly gracious host and really has thought of everything. From all of the little "extras", to homemade veggie pate and olives left in our fridge for pre-dinner drinks, Sylvie...

Sylvie at Jupiter Ranch has created an environment that spoils and relaxes. Jupiter Ranch is an eco-friendly, modern (but warm) 2 room B&B on the south end of Gabriola Island. Set in a large field with glimpses of the ocean, the setting provides a tranquility that is even more calming than looking right out into the water. The design of... More

We had a fabulous stay on Gabriola and Jupiter Ranch made it very special for us. We loved the unique building designed for passive solar heat with extensive use of natural materials. The room was stunning, furnished in a Scandanavian style with beautiful fixtures. The bed had a special memory foam mattress and was very comfortable. However it was the... More

Jupiter Ranch is as far from the kitschy, chintzy bed and breakfasts you often find on small islands. It's a custom built modern building that just exudes a Zen atmosphere. Sylvie the owner is delightful and has thought of everything - and then some - to make your stay perfect. I don't think I have ever felt more relaxed, it... More

From the superb breakfasts, calming atmosphere, comfortable and private room to the beautiful pieces of local artwork tastefully and carefully placed throughout the home. Sylvie is a creatvie and warm hostess who makes you feel like... More

Gabriola is an enchanting island; Jupiter Ranch is the perfect place to enjoy island living, catering to even the fussiest guest. Whether you're travelling in the winter and looking for a cozy hideaway, or you're taking a spring/summer trip to enjoy the beautiful beaches and outdoor adventures on Gabriola, Jupiter Ranch is a wonderful "home away from home". Most B&Bs... More

We have stayed at Jupiter Ranch BnB several times, both as a couple and with extended family. Whether it's the architecture, the location (warm and sunny), the views (ocean and islands across serene fields), the host (Sylvie, warm, kind, helpful, professional, with perfect english and french), the breakfast (to die for), the little touches (wine in the room), the rooms...
