“Hidden Gem on Portage Inlet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Amazing rooms with views over Portage Inlet, private deck and ensuite baths. Excellent location on bus route and 5 minutes drive from downtown. This is one of those B&Bs where the owners are doing it for pleasure, so the value is second to none and the service is outstanding. Gini and Roger (the owners) let us up to our room, then invited us down to their waterfront deck for a glass of wine, which turned into an evening of pleasant conversation. The room, service and breakfast were all 5-star, yet we paid about the same as a character-less 2 or three star hotel downtown. Can't wait to come back - highly recommend!

Room Tip: Book the "Hummingbird Suite" if you can - while both rooms are large and have ensuite bath...
