My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay in this beautifully renovated historic home in Duncan, unfortunately for only one night. Our spacious room was beautifully decorated and Cassandra, our friendly hostess had thought of everything to make a guest feel at home. As well as the usual robes and slippers, Cassandra had included exercise equipment for our use,... More

Sadly we just stayed here for one night. Spacious, clean and comfortable host. The owner is very welcoming and has lots of good suggestions for things to do in the area. Would definately recommend staying here if you're travelling to this part of Vancouver Island!

First we were met by the hostess of the establishment. While showing us our room, she explained the historical significance of the house, within the community. Our sleep was very comfortable, choosing the room with the king sized bed. Breakfast consisted of a starter of fruit and yogurt, with a main course of french toast, along with fresh home made...

Very hospitable host, she told us about the sights to see. Was very helpful. Clean and comfortable. They had everything that one would need for a comfortable stay. AC in the room was a plus, seeing it was a hot day.

An enjoyable, comfortable, clean, relaxed, and low-key place to stay on a quiet dead-end street within walking distance of downtown Duncan. We will go there again the next time we are in Duncan. Also a nice option for anyone visiting Glenora Farm. New WiFi system works well. Cassandra was friendly and helpful, giving useful tips about things to see and... More

Hair dryer not functional. Bathroom not spotless. No choice for hot breakfast. Parking in tiny cul-de-sac. Cost too high for what is offered as Luxury Stay in an Historic House at $150.00 per night for 1 senior person. The bed was comfortable. TV 18" have to use up and down button on remote and not number pad to seek channel.... More

We regret that your experience did not match that of all our other guests. You shared with me that you were coming to Duncan for an emotionally difficult reason. I know myself that when I am upset it can seem like everything is going wrong around me. For example, the hairdryer in your room has 2 settings (both of which... More

This home is very pleasant with its old woodwork and sense of history. A great respite from the intensity of life. The gracious hostess, Cassandra, was happy to answer all my questions about the house and property. Her frittata was great, too.

We had a lovely time exploring the Cowichan Valley based at Cassie's B&B. We were fortunate to be able to book the entire place for our small party; it was such a bonus having the second floor sitting room to relax in! The breakfast was lovely. Also, Essex the poodle was such a sweetheart!
