Oh my goodness, this is the cutest B & B EVER!!! The house is filled with miniature room boxes, hand-made by Lynne. We were greeted so warmly by John who has the best sense of humor. Before you could even put your bags down, you were captivated and drawn to studying all the miniature houses with Lynne while John added...

Wow, we're so glad that felt at home here. We always tell people it's our home first and a B&B second and it felt more like home than a B&B, we are happy. Thanks so much.

We have had season tickets to the Theatre in Chemainus and usually drive the 90 minutes home or stay in the Best Western in town. We wanted to try something different so booked into this charmer. We're glad we did. John and Lynn are delightful - love the miniatures. The accommodation is complete, including a very private set up with...

This place came highly recommended to us and it did not disappoint. The room was great, quiet, very comfortable and air conditioned! The bathroom was fully stocked and no detailed missed. We had a fabulous breakfast and enjoyed the lovely gardens. The miniature displays are so fun to look at. Great hospitality and go and enjoy this little gem!

The most friendly town and the nicest couple!! We travelled around BC for 2 weeks and our stay with Lynn and John were the best - filled with great hospitality and a lot of warmth. We laughed and talked and laughed even more while having breakfast. I recommend this place with all my heart!

Warm and welcoming hosts, excellent breakfast, beautiful place and rooms with every need met (in bed reading light, bathroom nightlight, clock, hangars, Kleenex, shampoo and hairdryer, lots of towels and facecloths, very comfy beds, own entrance, separate guest sitting area) Unbeatable value.

Thank Anne G
Lynne42, Owner at A Small World B&B, responded to this review

We provide the amenities but our guests are what makes the house a home and people like you are why we continue to B&B after all these years.

Great company rooms and food were top notch. Would definitely recommend and will return one day. The hosts made us feel as if we were at home. Beds were comfortable. I really think this 200 character crap sucks big time I am the one who should determine what I wish to not some damn program

A Small World B&B was our best stay during our 2 moth trip in Canada! As we rang the bell spontaneously on a Sunday night in September 2013 we were welcomed very friendly by John and Lynne. It's a lovely house with cozy rooms where we felt immediately at home. The breakfast prepared by Lynne was very delicious and unforgettable,...

My daughter and I came to Chemainus for the first time to see a play at the lovely theatre. There were many B&B's to choose from so we randomly picked John and Lynn's Small World and we were not at all sorry. We were warmly welcomed and instantly felt right at home. The room was clean and cozy, lots of...

My wife and I have stayed here a number of times, while visiting Chemainus for an evening at the theatre. The house is very attractive inside and out and is always spotless. Lynn and John Landygo offer the most comfortable and hospitable accomodation within a very easy walk of "downtown" Chemainus. In the morning, you will find an equally enjoyable...

And guests like you, Mark & Jane, is the reason we do B&B. We may not solve any problems at the breakfast table but we do have a lot of fun and good conversation.
