Booked in for one night but we're going back for 2 or more very soon. An oasis on Gabriola, completely cozy and away from it all. Travel a long driveway, up to one of the highest spots on Gabriola, for views over the gulf islands. A deer wandered in front of us. Hummers danced in the winds. Perfect.

We stayed in both rooms over the May long weekend. I cam happy to support all the positive comments and excellent ratings for this B+B. Arbutus Bluff is located up a treed roadway on an open ridge so there is plenty of sunshine and a lovely view. Visiting deer and busy hummingbirds provided entertainment outside our rooms. After a full... More

Outside of each bedroom are comfortable chairs to capture the view and watch the hummingbirds chase each other around the feeders.The B&B has 2 bedrooms that are self... More

We came to Gab to see what there was here and visit a friend. I didn't expect to love the B&B as much as I did. Frankly, I didn't want to leave to do anything! The hummingbirds on the deck, the view, the peace and quiet and the heated bathroom floors were all things I didn't expect but made our... More

The property is beautiful and had everything we needed for our 3-4 day stay. The breakfast Liz prepared every morning was DELICIOUS and she was so very accommodating to my food allergies, she went above and beyond. The beds are comfortable and the rooms so very warm and cozy. The hot tub was perfect after a walk/hike through the beautiful... More

Just spent a 3 day stay at this lovely B and B - the hostess Liz is so hospitable, the breakfasts are yummy, and the accommodation first rate. We would highly recommend this for a couples' getaway! Hopefully we can return.....

Liz & Bill have a wonderful property with views forever - sea, trees, hills - all deliciously taken from the state-of-the-art hot tub on the deck or from your comfy bed. Liz also has some great chef skills and your breakfast treats range from savoury prawn frittata to french toast to omelettes, along with fresh fruit and some of the... More

Just spent a magical weekend on Gabriola Island, staying at the Arbutus Bluff B&B. Arbutus Bluff is the quintessential B&B and Liz, the proprietor and chef made our stay exceptional. Liz is a worldly intelligent easy going former Torontonian and we had wonderful chats and an easy going stay. The place is beautiful and immaculate and the breakfasts were some... More

Arriving at the Arbutus Bluff B & B - one encounters open space, distant ocean views and yes, lots of arbutus trees. Add on the spacious, charming bedrooms (with fireplaces), beautiful bathrooms and a cozy dining area and you've got the perfect combination - nature abound and comfort galore. The breakfasts were delicious and made from fresh ingredients with coffee... More
