We spent 5 nights in the Rufous room- very spacious, big deck , and quiet. We had full access to the top floor of the lodge with another huge communal deck, lots of couches, kitchen and fridge. Decorated in gorgeous Inuit artwork and world art . Gracious hosts Janice and John. Excellent breakfasts with homemade cereals, jams, bread, garden fruit... More

We stayed at the Hummingbird B&B last summer for one night and loved it so much that we came back for 4 days this July. It is located on a quiet road but close to walking paths that take you to beautiful beaches. Janice is an organic farmer and has a beautiful garden and orchids. Her breakfasts were very tasty!...

A writer friend and I recently stayed at the Hummingbird Lodge for a writers' retreat. There are three roomy private rooms on the top floor, each with ensuites, comfortable beds, and private decks and desks by big windows. Solid wifi. Delicious breakfasts are organic, with produce from the garden (gluten-free on request). We were surrounded by Inuit art, drawings, crafts... More

The Hummingbird Lodge is located off the beaten track on an island where there are no truly beaten tracks. If you approach the lodge around sunset, watch out for deer (and their fawns) for they are plentiful in the woods and clear spaces near the road. The lodge itself is spacious, bright, and very attractive, made entirely of wood from... More

Majestic, inspiring. This beautiful lodge nestled is away on Gabriola Island. If looking to get away from the hustle and bustle or the world of electronics, it is a get place to go unplugged. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The decor was of native and local artwork and was like walking through an art gallery. Our Hostess, Janice Raven... More

We had a very comfortable two nights at the Hummingbird, getting a friendly welcome from the hosts and the breakfast was delicious. The property is large with many fruits and vegetables grown on site, even walnuts and hazelnuts. For bike riders: we were traveling by bike and the steep hill was a little tough to tackle when coming from the... More

My husband and I spent two nights here in August, and we loved it. The large spacious balcony with a view of the sunset and the short walk to the beach were highlights, as was the delicious organic breakfast grown on the property.

We had a perfectly wonderful experience at the Hummingbird. Janice and John have created a very special environment: comfortable, spacious accommodations; beautiful setting; and yummy breakfasts. We felt cared for while at the same time afforded great privacy....and like other reviewers, we were very reluctant to leave!

Staying at the Hummingbird was a real treat. The house has a beautiful design and is filled with local and Inuit art pieces. There is a fantastic lounge and more than adequate kitchen available to guests. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were wonderful and filled with ingredients grown in the extensive vegetable and fruit garden. Highlights included... More

If you are looking to get really far off the beaten path, Hummingbird Lodge on Gabriola Island is the place. Hosts Janice and John Raven are welcoming and the B&B is excellent. The rooms are large and comfortable, there is a private lounge space for guests and a kitchenette if you want to do a little self-catering. Which you will... More
