Joanne and Ric made us incredibly welcome in their pretty and well equipped bed and breakfast. It was like having an apartment to ourselves! Our hosts couldn't have been kinder and more helpful and they cooked us the most enormous and delicious breakfast. We had been travelling for a couple of weeks and to be given the use of a washer and dryer was hugely helpful.
If you are ever passing by Clearwater BC, please do NOT pass up a chance to stay at Ric and Joanne's fantastic B&B. Sadly we only had one night allowed for our trip, but could quite easily have stayed for a week. The accommodation is perfect - well equipped, spacious, cosy - Jo and Ric have thought of almost everything you need. We loved the little library under the stairs with books from all over. The garden is stunning - with a view that is almost as stunning. To top it all off, Ric and Jo served us an amazing vegetarian breakfast. We loved hearing the stories about local life in clearwater and this was a fabulous start for our road trip to the Rockies. Communication was excellent throughout the booking process and while we we there nothing was too much trouble for Jo or Ric. i have attached some pictures - but even those will not do the accommodation justice! We hope to come back soon and for longer - and would easily recommend this fantastic b&b to friends and family (it turned out to be THE best accommodation experience we had overall in Canada!!)…
We had a lovely stay with Ric and Joanne. They were so incredibly thoughtful and welcoming, and the cottage was so well equipped. They were able to give us great advice on what to do in the area, and the best places to eat. Their breakfasts were delicious, and the personal touches they left out for us were so sweet. We had a great stay here and would fully recommend to anyone.
Our stay with Joanne and Ric was a highlight of our time in Canada. They are perfect hosts, attentive without being intrusive. The semi-basement apartment had everything we could wish for and was a real home from home. The garden is a delight, and clearly a labour of love. Places to sit and read have views of wooded hills that could be Tuscany or Umbria. Every breakfast was a feast.
Garden View cottage is ideally situated for visits and hiking in Wells Provincial Park where there are beautiful waterfalls and scenic views. Our hosts ,Joanne and Ric were friendly and welcoming and did everything they could to make us feel comfortable, providing us with detailed information on any visits we’d planned and producing a variety of scrumptious breakfasts . The cottage has a spectacular garden with outdoor seating which overlooks the valley beyond.Breakfast is provided on the terrace when weather permits. This was an ideal stay for us giving us lovely rooms in a cosy setting. We were able to relax and to do lots of things in the surrounding area. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
