Seasons Above the Bay Guest Suites and B&B

Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

We recently stayed at Seasons Above the Bay, for a getaway from work and the city.  We were exhausted when we arrived, but the hosts, Bev and Jim, made us feel completely at home, and our suite, ‘Ocean Dreams’ was beautiful and very private.  Everything you could need was thought of and complete.  Cozy blankets and throws made watching TV in the living room really comfortable.  The kitchen was complete to the last detail.  The accommodations are totally first class and beautiful.  Our breakfasts changed each day, but always included fruit, yogurt parfaits made with fantastic homemade granola and then a main course.  Eggs benedict made with smoked salmon and local fresh shrimp was outstanding!  Then, the two house cats would make their appearance, and were very friendly without ever coming into our space.  We would highly recommend this B & B and look forward to a return visit!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Tom. We were happy to host you! I have to say, the aforementioned cats are quite thrilled with their good 'press'! Hope to see you again when you need another getaway!

My close famly members have lived in Cowichan Bay for 15 years, so I can consider it also to be a "home town" fo me. When too many family members came for a reunion this week, I found and checked-into Seasons Above the Bay's Paris Suite. My room and bathroom were very clean and well-equipped, that made my stay extremely comfortable. Bev and Jim provided proactive service to my needs while giving me privacy at alll other times. They also flexibly provided me with a nutritious and delicious breakfast every morning. The surroundings are beautiful, quiet and easily accessible. I found it restful and comfortable and trust all other guests would likewise do so.

Stephen, thank you for including us in your journey this time. It was lovely having you here, and spending time visiting. We sincerely hope that our paths will cross again, and that, if you ever have reason to seek out a 'home away from home' again, that you'll remember us.

Wow! If you are going to the Cowichan Bay area, you really should stay here for a few nights. It is absolutely lovely and peaceful. Hosts, James and Bev have truly thought of everything in their suites. We stayed in the Ocean Breezes suite and there was everything we needed and even things we didn't need! (washer /dryer, dishwasher, fridge in the suite!) The decor is wonderfully peaceful. The gardens are so nice and you can have breakfast out there too! Great start to the day . James and Bev know the area really well, and easily gave us a list of things and places to see, with the special tips that you only get from the locals. This B & B is about a 5 minute walk from the Cowichan Bay waterfront too. This B & B could actually be the destination for a trip it was so nice.

Room Tip: either suite is beautiful

We recently stayed two nights at Seasons Above the Bay to spend a couple days in the Cowichan Valley to visit with family. I was blow away by how lovely and put together each room was. Our hosts Bev and James made every effort for our stay to be just perfect. Each suite is themed and beautifully decorated, making the time we spent in our rooms a little get-away in and of itself. For those that wanted it there is a great hot tub on the deck, where you can star gaze at night. The bed was so comfortable, we just melted into the mattress...I haven't slept so well in weeks! In the mornings we were treated to delicious home cooking. Wonderful waffles with peaches and maple syrup, sausages, bacon, eggs...and home made blackberry jam! James and Bev also gave us great recommendations for things to see and do, and their B&B is close walking distance from all the little shops and restaurants in town. I hope to come back and highly recommend it for everyone.

Room Tip: There are two rooms, one with a kitchen and living area. Both are great!

My husband and I had only a few days to get away and tour the vineyards of the Cowichan Valley. We found this perfectly comfortable and private bed and breakfast, just up the hill from the town of Cowichan Bay. It was quiet and peaceful. We arrived around 3 pm, rested and then walked into the town for a wonderful dinner at the Masthead resturaant. Our hosts, Bev and James, prepared a delicious breakfast each morning on their deck surrounded by their beautiful garden. We slept very well in our bed that had several layers of extra comfort added. I recommend this to anyone visiting the Cowichan Valley for a romantic getaway.

We recently spent two nights at Seasons Above the Bay, taking in the Cowichan Valley Wine Festival and enjoying the local golf courses. Our stay with Bev and James was made so comfortable by the thoughtfulness that they have put into the suites and the breakfasts which we enjoyed on their patio overlooking Cowichan Bay. Seasons Above the Bay is centrally located to all that the area has to offer. We appreciated having our own access to our suite as we were busy in the evenings and didn't have to worry about inconveniencing our hosts. We would not hesitate to recommend Seasons Above the Bay to friends and family and look forward to a return visit ourselves.
