“retreat to serenity”
Reviewed August 1, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

My husband and I just stayed for the first time at Bloom, a small B&B on the grounds of one of the loveliest art galleries on Salt Spring Island, less than a 15 minute drive from the downtown area of the island. Our suite was located above the gallery and overlooked the lovely pond full of colorful coy and goldfish. How relaxing it was to sit on the patio by the water and read, listening only to the gurgling sound of the waterfall and the chirping of birds in the surrounding forest. Even the interior of the suite was designed to create that same sense of serenity with a calming monochromatic color scheme and decor, comfy bed, skylights and windows that keep the rooms light and cool from cross breezes and allow views of the pond and forest. What a great bonus to have a separate dressing room to keep luggage and clothes from cluttering the studio suite and distracting the mind from the simplicity of life! Special attention was given to details like locally made artisan soaps, homemade jams and breads, a one of a kind shower with artist designed wallpaper, and artisan lamps and accents made by the artist -owners . Paul and Anna have worked hard to create a place where one can throw off the distractions of daily demands, surround oneself with calm, and take time to relax and look at the beauty surrounding you in art and nature and those things made by the hands of artisans. They are both very generous with their time in explaining their artistic work and projects and helping to make your stay on the island enjoyable. We look forward to a return to Bloom, the Blue Horse Art Gallery, and the opportunity to refresh and renew our spirits in such a delightful setting.

Management Response
May 18, 2011
When we decided to share our island home we asked both our gallery visitors and B&B owners: "What makes a great B&B?". From their responses we decided that elegant beauty, privacy and the ability to have a simple healthy breakfast at any time was desired. So our website and letter of confirmation both list the food choices that we provide for our guests, and mention our special welcome treat - freshly baked pastries the first morning. Our approach has been very well received. However in this instance we take full responsibility for this communication problem because we didn't recognize our guests' confusion and disappointment over their breakfast expectations. We feel badly because it always gives us great pleasure when our guests are so happy and have such a wonderful time at Bloom that they long to return.
