My wife and I stayed at the Whitehouse over a weekend. The property is located by a beautiful lake that, although it's in an urban area, feels like a secluded oasis in the country. Unfortunately, the property itself is showing a bit of age and wear. The decor needs a bit of a refresh. Service was attentive and a noise... More

This was my first time staying at The Whitehouse on Long Lake. Marlene is a charming hostess. Having a king size bed to sleep in was awesome. |I had the orange french toast for breakfast and it was delicious. My suite had mini fridge, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker etc. Condiments are supplied - ie. tea, coffee, creamers and filtered... More

Staying here was the most amazing travelling accommodation experience I've ever had. Marlene was very sensitive and accommodating to our allergen needs (gluten free). We were the only one's in the house that weekend so she upgraded us from the lower level room th the honey moon suite at no extra charge. To kick it all off, on our last... More

My experience at The Whitehouse on Long Lake was an excellent place to stay. This was my first time to Nanaimo. Marlene the hostess is very gracious. I enjoyed the fact that you are able to pick out what you would like for breakfast from a menu and I was allowed to choose the time that wanted breakfast. My breakfast... More

We've been to The Whitehouse at least a dozen times. The setting is beautiful and the hostess, Marlene, outstanding! The breakfast is excellent, try the Orange French Toast, yummy. Marlene goes out of her way to make you feel welcome, at home and comfortable. You'll get your exercise walking up and down the stairs to the dock to take in... More

Our third visit to the Whitehouse and it is always comfortable and inviting. We like the spacious First Lady Suite, with the huge bed and jacuzzi tub. It was such a treat to arrive at 3:00 PM and be served delicious homemade pastries alongside a pot of tea. Marlene is a gracious hostess; she welcomed us back like we were... More

After arriving I quickly went to London Drugs and bought cleaning supplies. there were cob webs in all the corners, a leaky tub full of hair and filthy floors. It looks nice from the outside but ends there. The decor is from about 1994 and is extremely tacky. The breakfasts however were excellent. The small noisy dogs that came into... More

Unfortunately we were not on premise at this time as we were out of town for a family emergency. The operation of the B&B during my absence was handled by partime staff called in to take... More

This is one of the more unique BBs we have stayed in because it is built almost perpendiculalry on a steep hillside leading down to the large lake. You enter at street level onto an indoor balcony overlooking a 2-3 story high living room which is the hostess's. Our Safari room was to one side of the balcony...other rooms are... More
