The lovely hosts Joan and Chris created a wonderful secluded oasis amidst nature but very close to the quaint towns and vineyards in the Cowichan valley. Their very own large pond invites for a swim in summer. The whole property -the gardens, the house and the rooms- are very tastefully set up. They make you feel like home right away... More

We booked two nights in Ambraden Pond while visiting family in the area. The B&B is stunning both in the setting and the decor. The rooms are very comfortable; the beds and bedding are to die for, and our breakfasts were exceptional on both mornings. The guest sitting room is bright, comfortable and looks out over the pond. We could... More

Finding a place on the Internet and it actually is amazing... Priceless. Joan and her husband are lovely and their home and land is so beautiful and calming. I almost didn't want to write a review so I can still get a reservation here when I need one!! They deserve to be booked up. We had a great stay. Joan... More

We were greeted by Joan and after a tour of the house, we sipped a glass of wine and had good conversation with Joan and her husband Chris. The property is beautiful with a huge pond, complete with ducks paddling contentedly. The room was well appointed, large, held a very comfy bed and looked over the pond. The attached bathroom...

This place is a treasure. Hidden off the road it is beautifully appointed with big comfy beds, sunshiny rooms and huge stylish bathrooms. Perfect for honeymoon couples or anyone travelling who would like a deluxe experience off the main roads. Hosts Ann and Chris are delightful and so helpful with ideas for day trips and nearby restaurants and wineries. Ann... More

My fiancé and I stayed in the coach house for a 4 nights, and spent an evening drinking wine with Joan and her husband Chris. They are delight to talk to and even more fun to get to know. We felt completely at home and accepted from the moment we arrived. Ambraden Pond is a magical blend of quiet country... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at Ambraden Pond with our great hosts, Joan and Chris. It's a beautiful, quiet setting -- a retreat. Didn't take any of our "gadgets" and enjoyed a break from the world. My husband had wonderful swims in the pond and we both enjoyed good conversations with our hosts, over a glass of wine or as breakfast... More

I stayed here for 1 night during a business trip to Cobble Hill. The location is perfect if you're looking for something tucked away but still close to great food around the bay. The B&B is beautiful, too. Very spacious and quiet surrounded by a lake that's perfect for swimming (I didn't swim, although I plan to on my next... More

My second visit to Ambraden Pond was in June 2015 and was as wonderfull as my first visit 3 yrs ago. The home and the grounds are fabulous. It is a private, beautiful and very relaxing home/retreat. Joan and Chris do a marvellous job at hosting. Joan always serves a lovely breakfast. Highly recommended. Barb
