I stayed there for 2 nights and it was unbelievable! The view was just incredible. The place is so clean and comfortable, food was great too! It was really relaxing. The location is convenient too. Helen and Richard were so nice! I would definitely recommend it and visit it again!

This place is just absolutely beautiful. I booked it by mistake to be honest as I was trying to get into the Inn on Long Lake across the water, but I am so glad I didn't notice before I clicked reserve, lol! I am not a B&B type of person, I don't like to have people paying a lot of...

We just spent 6 nights at this B & B. Our hosts Helen and Richard were amazing. They were very courteous and pleasant. They had good suggestions for day trips and even assisted with booking and confirming tours with a B & B discount. The room was very spacious and the view spectacular. This was our first trip to Nanaimo....

Thank you so much for being such nice, polite, tolerate and considerate guests. Yes there is some little contradictory between flexible breakfast and its quality. Guests actually can have breakfast between 8:30 - 9:30, however, we need to know in advance what is the exact time. Our breakfast is not a buffet, some hot entree can not be heated. We...

This place is tucked away in North Nanaimo, but plenty close to many attractions. It was a true delight. With its serene lake side location (full access to the lake), beautiful and impeccably clean room, kind and delightful hosts; this is one of those finds that you want to keep to yourself. My daughter and I had a lovely stay,...

We had a wonderful four-night stay at Long Lake Waterfront Bed and Breakfast. Helen and Richard were gracious hosts and their location is very well cared for. We stayed in the Lakeside suite and highly recommend it. The large beautiful windows offer an amazing view of the lake and the gas fireplace was a nice amenity after using the wonderful...

Very gracious and accommodating hosts, beautiful lakeshore location and well appointed suite. Moonlit hot tub to die for! Our early departure necessitated a superb, previously prepared breakfast. We'll be back. Located on a side-hill with steep stairs - not for the infirm.

We arrived in nice weather and were warmly welcomed by the owners for our January visit. The home is modern and styled to fit the landscape and the views over the lake are extremely nice. There were a number of boats on the dock structures and in the summer, it is probably a great place for water play. We stayed...

Tucked away behind Long Lake in Nanaimo BC, this waterfront B&B was breathtaking in beauty.
