“Wonderful!” We have stayed at Diane and Randy's welcoming B & B several times over the last two and a half years. We're always welcomed by the friendly horses and dog when we pull in the driveway! The rooms are clean and comfy, and the hosts set a great tone at their yummy breakfasts to make all the guests comfortable. Add in the use of the kayaks at their waterfront dock, and a good time is had by all!
“Total Tranquility” We decided to stay at this beautiful B&B; on Saltspring Island when we realized that it was recently constructed by the owners of Blue Horse Gallery. We used to live in Edmonton, Alberta, and we had visited the gallery a few years ago and bought a contemporary, blue rectangular vase that we love. The gallery is a must see if you're on Saltspring, but we leave that up to you to discover. There are two different rooms to stay in, both impeccably decorated. One is above the gallery with a beautiful view over the pond and garden. The other room which we stayed in is adjoined to the owner's fantastic studio/home. The furniture and walls in both rooms are entirely painted in a rich cream color. The walls are generously accented with original artwork from the gallery. The lamp bases are designed and made by the owners as well. The bed linens are of exceptional quality. Anna was a gracious host and made incredibly delicious pastries from her kitchen for our 2nd breakfast. This B&B; is located on a beautiful property with arbutus trees and has a truly exotic garden and pond with lovely stone patios around it. It is a work of art in itself, in progress. The fencing is beautifully designed as well. The location is very private and it is completely silent at night. A north location on the island, it is about a 15-minute drive to the towns of Vesuvius or Ganges, or about a half-hour drive to the southern most town at Fulford Harbor. The only suggestion that we have is for anna to offer the home-made pastries for every breakfast rather than just on the morning that one leaves. This would add value to the price charged.
“Staying on St. Mary's lake is perfect, the waterview and water its self was amazing for both us and our palliative care” Magic Cabin on St Mary's Lake is the place to be. Hosts were charming and helpful.Beach chairs,kayaks, life jackets and more were a bonus.For us it was very important our rental was dog friendly as well as eco/bio friendly. Amazed at the chickens blue and green eggs on sale fresh daily, water and composting was done in a sustainable way throughout the property. This is a place I would love to stay at again. The hosts were kind and more than happy to answer questions or bring fresh towels, even their youth were polite. Where do you get that kind of teenager? walk down the grassy lawn to your private floating dock and you will be relaxed,welcome and cared for. We have stayed on Saltspring many times and this was the best experience ever.
