My girlfriend and I spent a lovely 4 nights in O Canada House, after spending a week in Whistler. As soon as we arrived, we made to feel like we were home from home. Helene the proprieter could not have been more friendly, helpful and accomodating. The recommendations of places to visit and eat (even kindly making a booking for us at a particularly busy restaurant) were all fantastic; real gems.
The sherry hour each evening is a treat - and a chance to share stories with other guests in front of the warm fire, situated in the period restored sitting room.
There are also helpful tips such as a recommended laundery close by - who pick up your clothes from O Canada House, and deliver back the next day!
Our room was a good size, cosy and very clean - with a dvd player that you can watch movies from the modest (I suspect donated) movie selection in the lobby.
But probably the best part about O Canada are the breakfasts! Rick and Ann are nothing short of miracle-makers in the kitchen! Three courses, homecooked muffins and pastries, the freshest fruit salads, and eggs benedicts and baked apples with cinnamon to die for! I have an egg yolk allergy, and bless them, they made special breakfasts from scratch for me containing only egg whites and variations on the themes of the main entree. Absolutely some of the best food we had was in this B&B - before we even set off for the day.
We heartedly recommend this b&b to everyone - a rustic yet elegant retreat from city exploring.
