I came to Nanaimo to visit my ailing father in a long-term care home and my son and i stayed here and we LOVED IT! We wanted to see the view every day when we woke up and shared the honeymoon suite... Marilyn and Glenn put a nice bed in for my son, who slept right up again the window to the wonder of the eagles/sea lions/plentiful of deer/dolphins and the odd killer whale each morning - was simply awesome to wake up to it.
House and accommodations were perfect - simply perfect. Breakfast was to die for - we definitely gained weight and we don't care. OH, those waffles!!! Glenn makes so many types of Bread I gave up asking what was next cause it did not matter - we knew it would be delicious. He knows how to make great cappuccini. Punto. Marilyn was such a delight and I cannot say one flaw about her. She makes you laugh; is very well versed her what to do around the area; where to eat etc... I was really impressed. It felt like coming home to parents each night - they were so sweet and caring but respected privacy. My son (17yrs) really enjoyed their company and played a good game of pool with Glenn and his grandson. Leaving there was sad - I wanted to stay and be adopted :-)
I hope to return to them again when I visit my father for another stay. I know I will be taken care of.
All the rooms are gorgeous - very quiet at night - hot tub was superb. The room to watchTV was huge, comfortable and cozy. The nature captivating. Cathedral Grove is a must for anyone.
Thanks again Marilyn and Glenn - huge hugs from me and Luc :-)
