“home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We have been regulars 6=7 times a year for a long time John and Lynne always make us feel at home. The rooms are comfortable and on a quiet street. The food is wonderful we often go with family and friends or just for a romantic weekend

Over the years we have spent a lot of time together and met quite a few of your family. Now it's like welcoming friends over for a visit. We look forward to many more.

A Small World B&B was our best stay during our 2 moth trip in Canada! As we rang the bell spontaneously on a Sunday night in September 2013 we were welcomed very friendly by John and Lynne. It's a lovely house with cozy rooms where we felt immediately at home. The breakfast prepared by Lynne was very delicious and unforgettable, not just because of the great food, but also because of the lovely company and the interesting discussions with John and Lynne. I absolutely recommend to stay there!

My daughter and I came to Chemainus for the first time to see a play at the lovely theatre. There were many B&B's to choose from so we randomly picked John and Lynn's Small World and we were not at all sorry. We were warmly welcomed and instantly felt right at home. The room was clean and cozy, lots of hot water for a luxurious soak in the deep tub after a long day of being a tourist to the area. My daughter enjoyed viewing the little doll houses Lynn creates - her hobby. Breakfast was made to please and there was no rush or pressure, all relax and unwind and have a good time. Thank you John and Lynn for making our trip such a pleasure. We will definitely come again.

Room Tip: All rooms were good as far as I could see.

Patricia, you and your daughter were "delightful" guests. To say that you felt at home makes us feel so good. Thanks for that and we look forward to seeing both of you again.

My wife and I have stayed here a number of times, while visiting Chemainus for an evening at the theatre. The house is very attractive inside and out and is always spotless. Lynn and John Landygo offer the most comfortable and hospitable accomodation within a very easy walk of "downtown" Chemainus. In the morning, you will find an equally enjoyable breakfast experience; eat a lot or eat a little but bring some conversation!
Absolutely first rate.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and extremely comfortable. You cannot be disapointed.

And guests like you, Mark & Jane, is the reason we do B&B. We may not solve any problems at the breakfast table but we do have a lot of fun and good conversation.

Our first trip to the Landygo's home was in 2007 and our return trip in 2012. Both times it has been a delightful visit. A newer house designed to look turn of the century, it is full of charm! The breakfast is always great and sets the standard to which all other B & B's are put up against. The Scale Miniatures in each of the rooms just add a wonderful touch.
Thank you, John and Lynne

Room Tip: They are all good!

Our first experience at staying at a B&B was nearly 10 years ago at It's a Small World. With such a positive experience we have visited numerous B&B's on many of our holidays since, however, none have matched the wonderful accomodation and delicious breakfast enjoyed here. While back in the area we booked a couple of days to find nothing has changed. As quests you feel like family.
