“Beautiful, fun, and friendly!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

My husband and I stayed 2 days at Maple View B & B in May, 2012 and cou
Don't have been more pleased! Peter was the most gracious host! The bed was über comfy, the place was spotless, and when we opted for the full English breakfast, we were not disappointed. It reminded me of our visit to England. Even the sheets on the bed were high-thread count cotton, which added to the comfort.
Maple View has a few 'pet' animals in the back yard. They are very quiet, but fun to watch and even pet. The animals all added to the charm of this beautiful B & B. Peter helped us plan the 2 days we were in Nanaimo with suggestions about day trips & restaurants. If you haven't visited Nanaimo, it's a great location to visit much of the island. We stayed at another B & B on the trip because Maple View was full, and it wasn't nearly as nice. A+++ quality!

Room Tip: I believe we stayed in one of the smaller rooms, but it was fine for 2 adults

On planning a visit to visit friends in the Parkesville area, the coincidental opportunity to reserve two nights at Mapleview was absolutely wonderful. The location and attributes provide what could be called a sanctuary. I can do litle more than sincerely support the reviews already posted, Thank you Peter. "Eh".

The rooms are spotlessly tidy, well designed, and comfortable. they have digital TV, a bar fridge, and a very comfortable bed... i was very impressed. the host, Peter, was charming and an interesting character, and he cooked up a fantastic breakfast. i have never eaten so much for breakfast before. i had milk with cereal, tea, orange juice, fresh strawberries, eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, and several rounds of toast... all cooked and served by our host Peter.
I would recommend this place to anyone... in fact when i go back to Vancouver Island, I will not want to stay anywhere else.

Only 4 complaints: 1) they did not have any shampoo in the washroom, 2) they did not have a shoe horn to help me get my shoes on (i think this has been rectified), 3) A small seat at the door would be nice to sit on as we put on our shoes, 4) the TV in The "The Cottam Suite" did not swing for comfortable viewing from ether the bed or the couch (a simple swing mount would fix this problem), however "The Roseberry Room" TV was mounted in a good position for easy viewing.

only 4 complaints from this extremely picky individual (me) is nothing, in fact i doubt any other B&B would do as well. I really Loved this place, and would like to say "Cheers" to the owners for making our stay a delightfully memorable occasion.
Thanks, Peter & Zinmar Norman.

This is the second time we have stayed at Maple View and we were not disappointed.

This is a lovely B&B well situated and the hosts are fab! We particularly enjoy breakfast chit chat with Peter!

We had a big room with a couch and a big bathroom. It was perfect, clean and wonderful. The B&B is in the "wildness". But this is perfect for a quiet stay. Peter make a delicious breakfast and you can choose any menu (smoothie, eggs, pancake,...). He can recommend any good pubs for a lunch. It is a familiar atmosphere. Perfect B&B !!!

My wife and I spent two nights at the Maple View Bed and Breakfast. The owner first off is more than
accommodating and makes you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. The thing that we probably liked the most about the place, and there were many, was the fact that your room had a separate entrance from the rest of the house. Rooms were well appointed, modern and very comfortable. The location of the place is also nice because you are in the country but 10 mins from downtown Nanaimo. Would definitely stay again.

We spent one night at the Maple View B&B in Nanaimo in September and were very satisfied with our stay. The room was well equipped, the bed very comfortable, everything was clean. Furthermore Peter`s breakfast was really excellent - a real go for Nanaimo.
