As soon as we arrived, Andy came out and made us feel very welcomed. The loft was cozy, clean, and looked even better in person. The vegan breakfast included an assortment of local goods which we absolutely enjoyed. We wished that we booked a longer stay and would not hesitate to stay at the Givingtree B&B again!

We had a lovely one night stay at Givingtree. The view from the loft was stunning and the room itself set the tone for a relaxing getaway.The breakfast was full of high quality goodies such as Harmony Organic milk. We would definitely return to Givingtree and recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet retreat in a rural setting.

We stayed in the "Sunrise Loft" on February 18th 2014. We arrived around 5pm and were greeted by sweet Oscar. We were initially disappointed when the "Karma Cabin" was booked, but as soon as we saw the loft we were so happy. It is such a beautiful, calming room. We instantly wanted to stay forever. The room included a small... More

We had a great time at the Cabin and had a very warm greeting from Andy and Chai. We stayed in the cabin and really enjoyed the clawfoot tub next to the fireplace, and looking out to the snowy winter wonderland. I have already recommended a few friends to visit them as well. The breakfast was amazing and I love... More

Chai and Andy are great hosts - very helpful about their suggestions on places to visit in the area. they have a lovely place and would not hesitate to stay again at their B&B. They made arrangements for us to try out a class at the Buddha Rider Studio and it was very good.

My partner and I stayed at Givingtree Bed and Breakfast and it was an awesome weekend away. We stayed in the cabin and it was really big for two people..it felt more like a cottage than a bed and breakfast because it was so private and big! The kitchen was fully stocked if we had wanted to cook a full... More

We had a really lovely two night stay during our three week stay in Canada. Andy and Chai are the best hosts. Everyone we met during our stay were friendly and helpful but it has to be said that there is something even more special about Andy and Chai. So relaxed with humour. Great breakfasts. Great room, and as I... More
