This Inn is clean; rooms are spacious; a modest breakfast is included. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Good value for price paid; you will need a car to get here. Make sure you get a lake view room

The view from the room is serene - a beautiful lake with trees reflected in the water. Beds/pillows are wonderful and the rooms are very clean. breakfast starts at 630 with a good selection of baked... More

Not luxurious or beautiful but friendly, accommodating and comfortable. Only one person on at the desk but she was helpful and efficient. Breakfast was simple but free and was a nice surprise. More of a place to stay en route than a destination.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, with our dog. It was great - right from check in, they give your pet a welcome treat with a towel and poop bag. We were offered a room on the ground floor for ease of access to the grass for our pup. Every room has a nice view of the lake. Our... More

We only spent one night at this lovely little inn. It was just off the highway and was very easy to find after we got off the ferry at Nanaimo. The room was small for four people but comfortable enough. There was a very basic kitchenette with a two ring hob and microwave, so no gourmet cooking possible. The breakfast... More

We stopped for an overnight visit on our driving tour on Vancouver Island. The Inn was ascetically whimsical with a country look nestled on a serene lake.

Thank you moosey67 for the great review. The lake is busy with rowers, kayakers, and, as you mention the remote control boat club that sails off of our dock regularly (summer and winter). There is always something to see, and the lake always looks a little different. Nanaimo is a great base for exploring the Island-Victoria with its attractions is... More
