Maple View Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed July 27, 2012

We spent 3 nights at Maple View and no praise could be high enough for the hospitality of our host Peter. Our room was very nice and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was amazing and we sat outside with a beautiful serene view to enjoy it. Peter cooks it freshly and caters for any dietary needs you may have with a smile. If you are in a car you have the best of both worlds here, tranquility for a good rest at night and great location for reaching some very interesting spots in a couple of hours. We even went to Butchart Gardens from here. Peter knows the area well and gives you great advice on things to see and do e.g. we had never heard of Dingy Dock Pub and were very happy that Peter told us about it. Also not to far to get a very nice meal at night.

We were nervous when we received an email shortly before arrival telling us that the "Maple View B & B" had moved! What?? What if it wasn't as nice or didn't work as well for us and our 4 children?! Turns out our fears were totally unfounded. The property was right in town, but set apart on a beautifully treed parcel of land. Peter couldn't have been more gracious and helpful, giving us detailed directions to a beautiful lake and feeding our family abundantly in he morning.

Kids were thrilled to meet "Kate, the exuberant lab".

Overall, it was a lovely experience. We could've stayed many more days. The accommodation itself was very comfortable and worked extremely well for us!

Although 4 children are not typical clientele for Maple View, we found our room to feel quite detatched and sound proof, which was very nice for us.

Try the new Maple View, you won't be disappointed.

Having stayed at Maple View twice before it was our natural choice when coming to the area again.

Peter and Sue have VERY recently moved house so the B&B has moved too. It's no longer in the Benson Meadows area it's now much closer to downtown Nanaimo. That being said the location is private, quiet and equally as comfortable as the previous spot.

As always we were made welcome and we want to wish the family all the best in their new home and venture!

We had read all the great reviews in Trip Advisor and chose this place to stay for out 44th Wedding Anniversary on July 20th.
When we found the address, there was no sign or name at the gate and the place seemed deserted.
There was a note on the door for us that they were unable to accommodate guests due to a recent relocation.
What a shock!
The owner Peter had booked us into an alternate B&B, called The Copper Kettle.
We were a bit stunned that we had not been informed ahead of time but understand that the property had sold rather suddenly.
We would like to thank Peter for arranging a good alternative for us.
Perhaps we will try the not yet open new place on a future visit to Nanaimo!

We apologized to these guest for any inconvenience caused, unfortunately due to the booking being made through a third party we did not have any guest contact details in advance to make them aware of our relocation. We had no other way of contacting these guests, other than leaving them a letter at our previous location. We knew they would be looked after extremely well at the Cooper Kettle, but we hope that they may reconsider staying with us in the future. We are open for business.

My wife, Catherine & I, spent two blissful nights in this oasis of peace, tranquility and beauty on Vancouver Island. Thanks Peter for looking after us so well during our recent stay (5th to 7th July 2012). Spotless room, great bed & nice big shower. Isolated, but close to Nanaimo & ferry. We hope to visit you again in the future. Frank & Catherine Keane, Wexford, Ireland

Although we only stayed for 1 night, we were made to feel very welcome. Peter greeted us at the door as if we had known each other for years. The room was beautiful and clean. After meeting Eeoyre and prince (the donkeys) and Robbie the horse Peter gave us a lift into town. Breakfast the following morning had everything from cereal and toast with homemade jam to pancakes or full english!! A snuggle with Kate (the puppy) and we were ready for the long trip back to Vancouver. We recommend a stay at peters if you are visiting.

We struck gold with this one! Perfectly presented comfortable room and bed in a lovely house tucked away from any main roads. This meant it was so beautifully quiet overnight (the best four nights sleep we'd had for ages) and a wonderful, big and freshly prepared breakfast to wake up to. I loved the idea of having breakfast cooked in front of us whilst being able to have a chat with our smashing host, Peter.

Our only wish is that Peter and Sue had set up their guesthouse in Scotland or the Lake District so we could visit much more often. Love to Kate (soppy black labrador) and our best wishes for your future plans.
