...just came back from a great long weekend in Vancouver and had the BEST stay at this B&B. It's got a great location off of trendy Commercial Drive and "to die for" breakfasts. From the fresh chocolate chip cookies and complimentary beverages in our room, our stay couldn't have started off any better. We had the Florence room and really appreciated the beautiful character that has been retained in this restored 1908 home. The little touches like the cozy bathrobes and a notebook computer in our room just added to our enjoyment. When we asked for directions to Empire Field for a football game Michael drove us there! We had a delightful sleep in on Saturday morning and were treated to a fabulous breakfast of fresh fruits and juice, enormous fresh baked pecan buns (we were warned by another set of guests to pace ourselves because there was more to come!) the best eggs benedict I have ever tasted nested on crispy potato latkes - yummy and beautifully presneted. If you ever get a chance to visit Vancouver and are lucky enough to snag a room here you won't be disappointed. Thank you hosts Lynn and Michael, we will be back for sure!
