Recommend! This comfortable welcoming home environment made our three nights on Bowen Island relaxing and enjoyable. We were there mid-week, so practically had the whole 7 bedroom home to ourselves. We received warm hospitality, good conversation and wonderful breakfasts from Rebecca! If you are able-bodied, the location is walkable to/from the ferry, the community shuttle bus, hiking at Killarney Lake...

The Lodge at the Old Dorm was an amazing place to stay. We traveled with my Daughter and Son-in-Law from Vancouver, who had been to this lovely B&B two other times, and highly recommended it. They keep thinking they’d like to try another location, but love it so much, they keep going back. Dan gave us the upstairs wing with...

We have visited The Old Dorm several times over the past few years and it's always have a magnificent time. Dan is a very pleasant, considerate host who will happily take some time out of his day to discuss life on this super quaint island. We live in Vancouver and it's crazy to think you can get to the island...

What an amazing place to stay. Dan was by far the most welcoming host I spoke to when calling around the island for a place to stay. The property was perfectly kept with climbing plants and beautiful flowers surrounding the entrance. My room was small, and the bathrooms were shared, but neither became an issue for my boyfriend and I....

Stayed in the Cecelia room, which has an enormous soaker tub. Staff was friendly and accommodating. B&B is walkable from the ferry. Has a couple common areas which are nice and allow for socializing with other guests if you feel so inclined. Great patio. Bed was comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely off the hook and dietary preferences were accommodated. Only...

I had a reservation at the Lodge for three nights; when I arrived to check in, there was no one to be found. I continued to check back over the course of the next 5 hours or so, When no one turned up, and with all my calls going straight to voicemail, I had no choice but to return to...

We stayed with Dan for 2 nights in April and loved it! He was a great host, the room (Lady Alexandra) was comfortable and I loved the soaker tub. Dan went out of his way to make sure we loved the breakfasts, and gave local advice. The location was perfect, we walked into town often. Check out the some of...

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of spending a week at this lodge and we absolutely loved it. It is a beautiful spot with a wonderful garden patio to spend time in or to just lounge in one of the many living rooms throughout the lodge. Our en suite bathroom came with an incredible soaker tub. The hospitality from...

Dan is always the best of hosts. His gentle style and the excellent food make this our favourite "away" but still close to home escape from the city. This visit we learned more culinary tips and tricks. I have also stayed here on corporate retreats twice and Dan provides a full set of meals for those retreats. The great room...
