Very welcoming and cozy atmosphere. Friendly and knowledgeable hosts. There was only one other couple with us so the place was very peaceful. The B&B itself is a short walk right down the street from the Capilano Bridge Park. I would definitely come back again if I were in the area and recommend this place to everyone!

We booked this B&B with tons of expectation. ThistleDown House was supposed to be one of the best B&B’s in the Vancouver area, and they really lived-up to that reputation. If you would like to stay in a cozy Western style home, this is just the thing for you. The House included 6 guest rooms under different themes and budgets,...

We stayed here recently for two nights and can highly recommend this lovely B&B. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff were very welcoming. The Thistledown is in the perfect location if you want to visit the suspension bridge and Grouse mountain. The only downside we found was the breakfast! It was a set menu which none...

Stayed here for three nights recently because we wanted to explore North Vancouver before our Alaskan cruise. Construction and busy traffic on Capilano Road made finding the entrance in our rental car a little tricky. You will have to navigate steps to the porch/front door with your luggage. We stayed in the Under the Apple Tree room. It had a...

We were striggling to find accommodation in Vancouver and had almost given up when we came across the lisitng for ThistleDown House. We were immediately impressed just from the pictures in the listing and then we saw it was located in North Vancouver right next door to the Capilano suspension bridge which just sealed the deal immediately. ThistleDown is the...

A beautiful 1920's bungalow with charm oozing from every corner. We stayed in the smallest room as we were very late with our reservation, but the room was delightful. Breakfast was a gourmet treat. Very accommodating and friendly staff which went out of their way to assist us.

In August last year my husband and I toured BC for 3 weeks, booking lots of hotels and B&Bs through online booking sites. Some were prepaid, some were not. Anyway, we just stayed one night at the Thistledown in a beautiful room, and had a lovely day there. We duly paid for our stay before leaving and that was it....

We were traveling as a party of four and picked Thistledown House in North Vancouver because of its locations away from the city yet within an easy drive to everything we wanted to see. When we drove up we were surprised to find that the B&B was located on a fairly busy street and had limited parking for a car...

My husband, daughter and I spent 4 nights in the Pages room in mid-July. The location was perfect for us (we were attending a family wedding at the Cleveland Dam and Grouse Mountain), but it was also perfect for getting to Stanley park and English Bay. The hosts (Liz, Virginia, Brian and Judy) we extremely welcoming and accommodating. The house...
