“"The BEST of the West!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

"High Hopes" Bed and Breakfast is one of the NICEST B&B's I have been at.
My Mother and I stayed there for a Mothers day, Mother and Daughter weekend, and we were spoiled!.
We stayed in the Luxurious "Whistler suite", With the "Breathtaking" View of the Mountains, River, and tree tops. The beautiful soaker tub in the room, the double head open shower with over head Rain shower and the feel of polished river rock under my feet......Ahhhhh....I felt like I died and gone to heaven!.
My Mother and I felt like Royalty! The Hosts "Pauline" and "Larry" made sure we had the nicests stay, and thought of every little detail... We were served coffee and a muffin delivered to our room in the Morning in Special Mugs...."Yummy Mommy"(for my Mom for Mothers day, and "special friend" for me. (My mother really is my best friend!) Sweet added touch!

The House is STUNNING! and I LOVED how comfortable Pauline and Larry make you feel. Within minuites after a beautiful hand made breakfast was served in the GORGEOUS kitchen nook overlooking the View of golf course and trees, I knew I had found a couple of great peopIe I want to stay friends with!!
Relaxed, yet attentive to your every need. I hope to Return to "High Hopes" one day soon with my Boyfriend, and I will for sure tell everyone about this amazing weekend!
Thank you Pauline and Larry!

Room Tip: Whistler room is Truely a pampering experience. The trains in the background lul you to sleep, and...

Thank you Colleen for taking time out of your busy schedule to write a review for High Hopes Bed and Breakfast. I must say that you and your lovely mom were the perfect guests and very appreciative of anything we did for you. We hope that you and your boyfriend don't wait too long before you come back to Hope. For such a small town, there is something for everyone here and if you just want to have a "lazy" day, that's okay too!

This is a stunning home that has incredible appointments-- heated brazilian hard wood/gorgeous slate tile flooring --immaculate bathroom. To top it all off, it is as the title suggest, high above the town of Hope. We woke up to an equally as gratifying view. The staff (including the adorable puppies) greeted us with a warm breakfast and good company. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Hope, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Eagle room has a better view!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review on High Hopes Bed and Breakfast. We really enjoyed your company (and the puppies did too) and we especially liked your stories about your world travels. Maybe the next time you visit our little town of Hope, the Othello Tunnels will be open.

We stayed one night on our way to Vancouver. The bear room was very nice and the house is in general fine furnished and something special with the great view to the sundown. The bear room is located to the mountain and away from the train track. We haven't heard the train at all and had a peaceful night.

Pauline and Larry were very nice hosts. Thanks!

Room Tip: Bear room is probably more quiet than the other rooms towards the train track.

This B&B has a view that is unbelievable. It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the 5 minute drive up the hill. The room is clean and comfortable. Yes there are trains, but not so loud as to disturb your sleep. The host Pauline and Larry are very warm and inviting and breakfast was just wonderful and very relaxing. THe best place to stay in Hope as far as we are concerned, we will be going again. Great value, great view, great hosts!!

We had a great time staying with Pauline and Larry at their beautiful home in Hope, BC. We stayed in the Eagle room and enjoyed the view and EVERYTHING about this place. It's absolutely a top notch spot. I loved being around their sweet little pooches. We were on a motorcycle trip and it was nice talking to Larry who has traveled much around the world on bikes as well. You can't go wrong in this place. A++++++++

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us - and I am sure Larry enjoyed talking about his world trips. He has only been as far as the U.S.A. and Tijuana on his bike (but it probably seemed like a "world trip" to him. The pooches are doing fine and are much more comfortable now the weather has turned cooler!

Had we consulted Trip Advisor earlier we would have anticipated the train noise matter and made our decision accordingly. There was no hint of this in what we had read elsewhere. Some guests were more bothered by it than others (it even evoked good memories for some people) which is fair enough but we did not enjoy that aspect. Otherwise a nice stopover.
