Carol and Shayne have managed to create a very special place - beautiful, comfortable, with lots of privacy. We felt pampered right from the beginning. Shayne's breakfasts are out-of-this-world and Carol just radiates warmth and hospitality! I wish it was closer, so we could visit them more often.

Spent two nights here in early July. We stayed in the main house, and had two rooms plus a big washroom. The rooms were beautifully decorated with local art. Homemade pastries were available all the time as well as fresh coffee, tea or hot chocolate. But the main reason for staying here is the breakfast and the conversations that go... More

This accommodation came at the end of several months of travel and it was exactly the 'wind down' that we needed. We stayed within the main house and accommodation comprised a lovely sitting room with a beautiful day bed, games, colouring books etc, then a huge bathroom ( iron and ironing board in the cupboard), water cooler, then into a...

We cannot say enough about this lovely B&B nestled in the woods just outside Ladysmith, BC. Our stay in the King Suite of the Carriage House was the most delightful B&B stay we have ever experienced. A beautiful loft room surrounded by the incredible beauty of Vancouver Island with lovely flower gardens tumbling at your feet below. Delightful hosts graciously... More

I stayed at the Blanket & Spoon for three glorious nights with a friend. We couldn't have been more thrilled our stay. From the minute we drove in down the little wending drive to discover a sun dappled clearing full of gorgeous flowers & wildlife we were in love with the place. We stayed in the suite over the garage... More
