“Wonderful B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights at the "Garden View Cottage B&B" with Joanne and Ric and wished we could have stayed longer!
Joanne and Ric gave us a very warm welcome and showed us around. We were speechless when we saw the huge B&B area for the guests - everything so clean and pretty arranged and just beautiful! We felt very well during our stay.
We also loved their garden which is just huuuuge and beautiful. Especially in the summer when all the flowers and plants bloom. Unfortunately we weren't lucky with the weather so we had our fantastic and tasty breakfast in the dining room.
Thank you very much, Joanne and Ric, for your hospitality and the nice talks with you and also for all the inside-informations. We had a wonderful time!
If we come back to Clearwater, we will definitely book your B&B again (hopefully it'll be available for us).
Lovely greetings from Germany,
Karina, Kathrin, Konrad and Martha

Your praise of my garden, is very appreciated, I must say after looking at your family garden in Germany I think you have a spectacular garden, with roses, vines and the most fantastic tile driveway. We enjoyed meeting you when you first arrived to saying good-bye after two enjoyable days. Looking forward to your return in the future.

We stayed at this B&B, in our trip to Canada. Joanne's wonderful hospitality, personal attendance and delicious breakfast made us want to stay even more time then we did. The B&B has beautiful and big rooms and well groomed garden.

Thank-you for you wonderful review, we were pleased that you found our B&B comfortable for the four of you. The weather co-operated and it was a beautiful morning to enjoy breakfast outdoors. We hope other friends of yours will also choose to stay with us in the future. Happy travels.

This was the best B&B we had during our 4-week trip from Calgary to Vancouver!We were a party of 6 travellers, 2 five year olds who had a blast in the magnificient garden with many toys to play with, 2 adults and two seniors who also enjoyed the wonderful, relaxing beauty of the surrounding.In other words this is a great place to stay for people at any age!The hosts Ric and Joanne gave us a very warm welcome, helped us with everything (e.g.making reservations for the ferry, gave us tips for our trip, the laundry etc.etc.) and made us feel at home! The rooms are very beautiful, perfectly clean and have all the amenities you need or wish for after a long trip. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic, with fresh fruit and everything was homemade! All in all, a perfect place to stay which absolutely deserves the five star rating! Thank you so much for the terrific time we had at your place!Susanne, Lutz and the girls with Werner and Brigitte from Germany

Your comments are quite overwhelming. Thank you for taking the time to let us and other travellers, know about our B&B. Ric and I totally enjoyed your twin girls, picking cherries and running under the sprinkler and the conversations with your family. You were fun guests and very easy to look after. I hope we are able to accommodate you again in the future and welcome you back to visit the North Thompson Valley.

See you again, I hope. Joanne

The B&B is situated in a quiet, residential area in the town of Clearwater. We arrived in early afternoon which wasn’t a problem. Joanne and Ric showed us around their house and garden which was really beautiful. We quickly went to Wells Grey Provincial Park and Joanne and Ric provided us with binoculars and two books on the park, marked at the appropriate pages. We had a really beautiful drive and to crown it all we saw bears close up, just beside the car! Our basement suite had its own entrance and was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and furnished. It is made up of two bedrooms, bathroom, small kitchen and large living area with TV etc. but we had this all to ourselves. Joanne and Ric provide a good breakfast which was served upstairs and they went out of their way to make us feel welcome and help us in any way they could. The only small issue we had was that we were told that breakfast would be at 8.00 am, a little too early for us! It was good value for money and we strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Clearwater

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review and for the compliments.
My apologies if you felt that the 8:00 am breakfast was too early. Typically our guests do request that particular breakfast time to meet their traveling schedule.
We are always open to discussion to best meet the needs of our guests, which of course includes the time breakfast is served.

Happy Traveling,
Joanne and Ric

One of a kind B&B. A beautiful garden that even a non-green thumber would drool over. A spacious, self-contained suite with no detail overlooked. Joanne and Ric are the perfect hosts...to the manor born! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Definitely worth a stop in Clearwater. Explore Wells Grey Park and Garden View Cottage!

What a little jewel ! Joanne and Ric are the perfect hosts. Their B&B is just great. All amenities are available. You feel at home, even when you are thousands of miles away from your own home. And what a garden, what a view ! We don't have enough words to express how lucky we were to have found this beautiful accommodation. And be sure you won't start the day with an empty stomach. Your hosts serve a delicious breakfast in their kitchen area with a view on their perfectly maintained garden and the mountains. Keep up the good work !

This is a brilliant B&B and one of the best we have ever stayed at.
Joanne and Ric were fantastic hosts and extremely welcoming. The room is extremely private, large, quiet and not lacking in any amenities at all. The beds are suberb.
The views from the property are lovely and the garden is a testament to their attention to detail. Breakfast was brilliant too.
It's just a pity that we could only spend 1 night there.
