I honestly don't know what all the fuss is about with this inn. Perhaps the previous reviewers never stay at top-notch, owners-on-site b & b's. O Canada House is NOT one of them. There is no "inn-keeper" on the weekends when we stayed. The guests are left alone in the house every night with a cell phone number to call in case of emergencies. The outside doorbell does not work so God forbid you forget your key! Furthermore the inn touts the renovation of the house by the "previous owners", (the current owners remain a mystery and are nowhere to be found). Don't be fooled into thinking that Helene is the owner, she is not but tries to hide this fact from the guests and plays along if a guests assume she is. Rick is lovely and cooks a wonderful breakfast. But clearly, the staff does not get along. During our stay, we were unfortunately privy to staff bickering on who would be forced to work with one staff member they all seemed to dislike. I finally surmised the absentee owners must be a corporation. It's sad really, it's a lovely house that was probably a lovely b & b when the previous owners renovated and ran it. Now, what you'll find is a well-located inn run as cheaply as possible with little charm, cheesy furnishings, thin towels, no air conditioning and a part-time staff. At $200 a night it's really not worth it. Vancouver is a charming city but we really wish we had stayed someplace else.
