Vancouver Island B&B guest reviews

Frommers guide book of Vancouver Island writes……All 3 suites here at this Nanaimo accomodation, are beautifully decorated, well furnished, and have spectacular views of the lake, gracefully framed by a 500 year old Douglas Fir tree and a 250 year old Red Cedar tree. The Arbutus suite is the smallest with a queen size bed, while the Madrona and Lakeside each have kings: the later has its own entrance and hostess bar, and is more like a mini apartment. Breakfast doesn't disappoint. They are served in an atrium-lounge, overlooking the lake, and appear rather magically via a dumbwaiter that connects to the kitchen above. Guests can explore the lake beyond the views, as kayaks, a canoe and a pedal boat are provided free of charge at the private dock.

Guest book comments

The hostess was very nice and welcoming. Room was excellent, however if you can not do stairs, request a different room. We enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend            –Tammy, (US)

After 3 weeks travelling, we have found the best B&B. A perfect end to our stay in Canada. Thank you Gordie and Janice for this wonderful place, for your hospitality and friendliness. We enjoyed the trip with the Jet Ski and it was cute to see Mike the mink on the dock. All the best for you. Astrid and Markus - Switzerland

My husband and I had the opportunity to make a quick trip to Vancouver Island in late April. We choose Long Lake Waterfront B & B as a 'rest stop' before getting busy to assist extended family with a move. This fabulous spot with hosts Gordie and Janice was an amazing 'quick refresh'. From the time we arrived to when we departed was just under 24 hours– but it felt so much longer. We thoroughly enjoyed our suite, the lakefront, a tasty breakfast, great conversation… and simply a chance to catch our breath. Both the Vancouver Island B & B as well as downtown Nanaimo were awash in Spring colours… a treasured change from a long prairie winter. We will be back!

Thank you for a lovely stay in your hidden gem.We arrived by chance and didn't want to leave. The most comfortable bed, tasty breakfast and then a spin on the lake.With a hot tub and a splash in the lake, we were ready to take on the world. Thanks again - we can't recommend the place highly enough.

Although we were here only 2 days, they were memorable ones. What a beautiful place to stay. Can't say enough about our wonderful host and hostess. Thank you so much for giving us memories for a lifetime.

Gordie and Janice Staying with you in your lovely relaxing home was the highlight of our 2 weeks travel in Canada. You made us feel right at home with your warm and hospitality, and we so enjoyed playing with all your "water toys"… and after a relaxing soak in the spa, we slept like babies in the big king size bed! We don't want to leave… Thank you both - come and see us in Arizona -
