This was a very reasonably priced B&B located quite near the ferry terminal. We stayed here on a bike trip from Victoria with our children aged 4 and 2. They loved it. The B & B is a cool old farmhouse with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Also, it's situated on a large property with hiking trails, a private beach and a few farm animals--all good for family fun. The hosts were able to put us all in one room and each of our kids had their own bed. Very comfy and quiet! The breakfast in the morning was local and filling. I liked how the hosts even made mouse-shaped pancakes for the kids. I also liked that the hosts were there when we arrived to settle us in, but then they seemed to disappear and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Would recommend this place for its atmosphere, proximity to the ferry and the price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Come to Saturna Island and take a step back in time at Breezy Bay Bed & Breakfast. Our beautiful and rustic 1890's home, still a working farmhouse, is situated on a fifty acre organic farm, approximately 2km from the ferry. Our home was restored last in the 1970's keeping as much original character and charm as was possible. The evidence of its long and diverse history emanates from every room. We offer four unique guest rooms, a library, large common rooms and a breakfast sunroom for vacation getaways or longer stays. Our wholesome, gourmet breakfasts are homemade using local produce; with some ingredients coming straight off the farm.The driveway is lined with Maple, Linden, Hawthorne, Walnut Trees and century-old Lombardy Poplars for almost a furlong and the house itself is nestled amongst Orchards, Flowers, Scented Lindens, and more. A wide veranda overlooking the orchard stretches along the length of the house; an ideal environment for reading, relaxing, and/or bird-watching. Also on the property are short hikes, a pond and private beach, suited for kayak launching or sun bathing. ... more less
