A short introduction to the area in a small booklet they have assembled leaves you ready to explore. Of course, you may be tempted not to move from the idyllic setting with sounds and smells from the... More

It was an amazing three nights in the Driftwood Suite for my wife and I over the past long weekend. The Skipping Stone was the perfect choice for a relaxing getaway to decompress for a few days. We had planned to see more of the island but we found the place so relaxing that we didn't end up going too... More

We had a lovely stay in the Starfish Suite at Skipping Stone B&B. We were so pleased with the incredible view of the ocean, a quiet location, and spacious suite. Tanis and Paul provided all the luxuries to make you feel at home, such as their homemade scones, a fridge stocked with some breakfast essentials, luscious towels, and a quality... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Driftwood Suite at Skipping Stone Beach B & B. The suite was very clean, private, and tastefully decorated with driftwood accents. We enjoyed gazing at the ocean from our private patio, and the sunsets were unbelievably lovely! This place truly lives up to its name, as there are an abundance of smooth, flat... More

We had the opportunity to stay at the property to decompress after our wedding in May. It was everything we had hoped for. The location was beautiful. We spent time everyday skipping stones on the beach and watching the sunset. The bakings we received every other morning were delicious. Our suite was quiet, private and had everything we required.

This B&B is really unique in that the suites are completely self-contained (like small apartments), but with fantastic waterfront views and beach access. Two of us stayed in the Starfish Apartment suite and it was perfect. Cozy sitting area, amazing deck with comfy chairs, private bathroom, fantastic kitchen with all you really need including juice, milk, cream in the fridge... More

We stayed in Driftwood for 3 night in May and had a wonderful stay. Paul and Tanis are great hosts. The scones and muffins were a wonderful treat. The suite is well laid out and immaculate. We have great pictures of the incredible sunsets. We will definitely be booking another stay.
