This is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. Private and quiet - the view is fabulous. The cabin has everything you might need - is private and cozy, but spacious. We picked up some food before we went and just enjoyed. Close to the Grey Goose trail if you like to walk - The private deck with hot tub... More

We just returned from a company fishing and golfing trip the past three days. We've stayed here for many years now and the experience is consistently good. The view is spectacular, a nice change from the bustle of suburbia. Staying here is very relaxing and the fishing is great. Personally, I've never left without a 20 pound salmon. It's important...

Hi! Thank you for the review! I'm so glad that you liked your stay and were able to walk on the trail and enjoy all that we have to offer here. Unfortunately, we can barely keep our eyes open after 9pm, let alone 10:30pm - hence our check-in times are 4pm - 6pm. I'm sorry if my husband was grumpy.... More

We loved our stay here and wish it had been longer than two nights. Kathy was helpful and accommodating, and she immediately understood the needs of a family traveling with a 3-year-old boy. He loved the trampoline! All three of us enjoyed breakfast. We could have sat on that deck for so many more hours. Spotted a bald eagle twice!

A group of six of us choose this B&B because it is located at the 37 mile marker on the Galloping Goose Bike Trail. A beautiful tranquil place with very nicely appointed lodging. The lodge has four (separate entrance) large suites, each with two very comfortable queen beds. At the lower level was a full dining/lounging area which made it... More

My best friend and I took a weekend and stayed in the Arbutus cottage at the Arbutus Cove Guesthouse. Kathy was very friendly and welcoming but we really appreciated that once we checked in, we really didn't see anyone for the rest of our stay and were left to our own devices. The cottage is so wonderful! Super clean, comfy,... More

We have stayed at this guest house on a couple of different occasions! The property is absolutely stunning and we have the best sleep ever in the cozy beds. It is such a treat to be able to step off the 5 acres of private waterfront onto the Galloping Goose walking/biking trail. The private rental cottages look incredible as well.
