Beautiful service, William is a wonderful person who went ahead to warn all his customers on the oncoming typhoon before the trip, despite it being days away. The only owner who gave priority to our safety instead of the booking. In the end, the typhoon didn't affect us, and we enjoyed a quiet peaceful stay. William went the extra mile... More

Although we liked it so much last time not only did we come back we brought two friends. This was our second time visiting William and his wife at Canaan Cottage. I think we may have appreciated our time here a bit more this time. We've been living in Taipei for a 1 1/2 years so a break from the... More

Anyone consider visiting Yilan should stay over at this B&B...by far the best host we have ever met and provide such unique experience that we really wish we could have stay longer. They provided us with great tasting breakfast and gave us priceless botanical introduction of their private collection of plants and flowers around the B&B compound. You are greeted... More

This B&B gives you the Taiwanese 'Ming shu' experience. The host is very friendly and shares his knowledge on gardening and nature, giving us a guided tour around his gardens which we greatly enjoy. The rooms are simple, clean and well kept with a scented wood smell, has wifi and cable tv channels. Breakfast is served with simple yet delicious... More

This is a very natural B&B with different species of plants planted by the owner. It's just like a mini ecosystem. These few days will definitely be an unforgettable experience. When we first arrived, our owner prepared tea for us, that's so nice! They also prepared local traditional breakfast for us, it's not totally different from common breakfast you have... More

William, the host, came out to help us with the luggages as soon as we arrived. He was so helpful throughout our entire stay, suggesting where to visit and even led us for a 20 minute drive which was out of his way to find a place for good buns and dumplings. He prepared an 8 dish Taiwanese breakfast, including... More

This B&B, unlike others, has a huge backyard where you can see lots of fireflies flying around during summer evening. It's a truly amazing scene! Also, there are loads of plants in the garden and around the mansion. For those who love nature, it's a great place to stay. We had a great sleep there as well since it's in... More

Spent one night in this BNB. We treasure every minute and everything from the warmest hospitality, well-designed rooms, beautiful garden and wonderful breakfast. We have been to over 100 different hotels and BNBs. We rate this the best of the very best. Why? How would you rate a home? P/S, This BNB is excellent for family with kids. Location is... More

I went there with my parents. It is the main reason why I choose this B&B. My parents don't like the luxury hotel. They said, they go to Ilan for having some fresh air, being close to the natural...so no more modern things. This B&B totally meets their requirement. Especially to the building itslef, it's mainly built by wood. When... More

We loved, loved, loved our stay at Canaan Cottage! William and his wife were great! We showed up earlier than check-in time, William came out and apologized our room wasn't ready. We were fine with that, we just wanted to make sure we could find the place and let him know we'd be back late. He showed us some of... More
