Armand Heights Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We were connected with this fabulous B&B by the visitor's informations desk in Ganges. We arrived to Salt Spring Island without reservations and Irina graciously accommodated us with short notice in the Arbutus Room. The place is immaculate, the bed is the best I've ever slept in, the view is spectacular and the breakfast and treats are simply delicious. Irina is the perfect hostess and worked very hard to make our stay memorable. There are three suites side by side by situated that you have lots of privacy including your own large private deck with glass railing which gives the feeling of floating in the treetops. Our suite even had a large soaker tub. My only regret is not being able to stay longer and having the chance to use the hot tub or enjoy the fire pit. This place is perfect for a romantic escape.

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful place. After staying at a few B&B's, we found Irina's bubbly
personality to suit the surroundings of this place. Irina was certainly the hostess with the mostest.
Her cooking was fantastic, the room was immacutely clean and we could not have found a better
place to stay for the view. As well we found Irina would go the extra mile to make you feel
at home away from home. Her extra little touches like the freshly baked cakes when we returned
for the night were so delicious and most appreciated. The home made wine was very good, as well as the fresh cut flowers which added a personal touch. She is such a remarkable person I
wish I could have taken her home with us.

Room Tip: If you are touring the island, we found the Pine Room to suffice very well as you didn't spend t...

I wish I could live here. I couldn't get enough of the view. You can see across Galiano, across the Strait all the way to the north shore of Vancouver. The only sound is the sound of bird song. In the mornings our wonderful hostess, Irina, would bring amazing breakfasts to us on the deck. She is a top-notch cook and baker. She also brought some of her bakings to us in the late afternoon just when our blood sugar was dropping. The rooms are very spacious, airy and comfortable. This B&B is a hidden gem.

Spent a glorious sunny weekend on Salt Spring Island. Armand Heights is located on the shoulder of Mount Maxwell, and the views are glorious. Sitting on the big beautiful deck, listening to a chorus of bird song, eating Irina's amazing omelettes, watching ships in the distance... it was close to heaven.
Our room was huge, and a powerful ceiling fan kept it cool despite the unusual heat. Irina is a gracious host- we certainly weren't left wanting for anything, least of all delicious food. Her breakfasts are out of this world- the eggs Benedict made with fresh eggs from her own chickens, for example- but what we weren't expecting was the fresh baking that just showed up from time to time in our room.
The property is beautifully kept, and Irina's roses are gorgeous. Salt Spring was beautiful, of course, and the Saturday market in Ganges was a lot of fun.
Highly recommended.

We came in very late after enjoying the vibrant local food and music. Irina, was a charming,gracious host and showed us to our lovely huge suite where we were treated to great wine made by her husband. (did I mention that the wine was great!)The B&B had been renoed recently and was large, modern, spotless and complete with her home grown lovely flowers and a large balcony the full lenth of the suite. We were celebrating an important anniversary and this suite was perfect. The stars were out in all the glory you don't usually see from the city. spectacular start to a wonderful weekend. Very comfortable bed The next morning we awoke to full panoramic views right across to the mainland. You are so high up that the Ravens,eagles are flying at your level. Breakfast was very very good. Fresh fruit picked that day from the Garden, with large amounts of coffee,tea. fresh oj. followed by full breakfast of your previous choice that was so fresh. Eggs from their own chickens,everything local and fresh. The salt spring tourist info said she was the best cook on the Island and they were correct. We went on a hike that starts a 2 min walk down the road and shows a panoramic view over to vancouver island.and the other side of ssi. so worth it.
The main village area was a short drive away. At Irina's sugestion, we had a wonderful day at the local fall fair and even wonderful food and music at a local treehouse cafe.
Irina has a real knack of making you feel pampered and quite at home as she goes above and beyond expectations to make your stay special. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Saltspring. We plan to come back sometime with our kids. great place for a romantic getaway or a family.

Room Tip: all rooms seemed like they would be good , Red cedar suite was very large and beautiful

We had a terrific stay at Armand Heights Bed and Breakfast. The view from our room was like being in a dream. You are on the top of a mountain, and you can see for miles, and it is beautifully wooded and very peaceful. We were greeted by our hostess, Irina, with wonderful hospitality, and an unexpected surprise. She had two baked goods on platters. How nice after a long trip.

Each day we had a terrific breakfast, which changed daily. They were excellent and very fresh. First a bowl of fruit, followed a few minutes later by the mail course. If we needed anything Irina was right there to help, and she has a very beautiful garden, which must have taken years to complete. We also got baked goods each afternoon when we returned as well.

She also helped us with a map of Saltspring, advice about the various places we wanted to see, and there was also a lot of good information in the room itself.

Our room was her smallest, and it was quite spacious, well decorated and comfortable. I travelled a lot in business, and this was by far one of the most comfortable places I stayed. I would highly recommend it to anybody who was going to Salt Spring Island, a great place to visit.

Charming B&B in a peaceful setting with great views. Irina is a wonderful host and cooks great breakfasts. Upon checking in, you are greeted with homemade wine and cake - such a nice treat! Bed was very comfortable and we all had a relaxing sleep. Irina grows a great variety of roses in her garden, practically a feast for the eyes. Will definitely stay in this B&B again when we return to Salt Spring.

Room Tip: We stayed in the newly renovated Arbutus room and were happy with everything.
