Great atmosphere and wonderful hosts. Our room was luxurious and comfortable. Close enough to walk down to the village; where everyone was friendly and willing to help us find what we were looking for. I will definitely return for another stay.

If you're interested in a comfortable venue for a group meeting, workshop or simply a retreat, then from experience I can recommend Seasons Above the Bay. The rooms were very welcoming with lovely decor and nice bathrooms. The Ocean room offered us a large living/dining room where we were able hold discussions in a relaxing atmosphere. the delicious breakfast started off the day, followed by an energizing walk to the quaint village of Cowichen Bay.

Room Tip: For a short trip, the Paris Memories room is very comfortable. The Ocean room will delight you with...

The Seasons Above the Bay Guest Suites and B & B is located perfectly above the busy activities of the waterfront. It is set on a quiet street only a short walk to all the interesting shops of the Cowichan Bay seaside village. We stayed in the Ocean Dreams suite which was private and perfectly decorated to enhance the feeling of being swept away to another world. All the details of comfort were carefully executed, from the ambient lighting to the cozy bed. Everything was very clean and fresh. We had a delicious and substantial breakfast with charming fun-loving hosts Jim & Bev, who pointed us to the many interesting features of the Cowichan Bay area. We will definitely make a point at staying there again!

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
