We (and our two Westies) rented the stand alone Cottage for three nights (May 12-15). Wonderful location, lovely grounds and such wonderful owners ~ Beverly and Len went out of their way to make all their guests "right at home". The two course Breakfasts were "to die for"....We have stayed at a number of excellent B&Bs but these Breakfasts set...

Delightful guest house. We choose the side by side studio suites with family members which provided a nice shared patio for afternoon gatherings. It felt more private. Bird feeders ensured there were wonderful songs of nature all day long. The breakfasts were different each morning, beautifully prepared and lovingly described by chef Bev. Len an attentive host. The beds were...

Len and Beverly have worked hard to make us feel very welcome. Amazing two course breakfasts (we didn't have to eat again until supper). Local ingredients like plums and apples from trees in the yard and Ruckles goat cheese made breakfast even more enjoyable. We stayed in the cottage, so had access to a full kitchen which helped keep costs...

Had a quiet 2-day stay in a room with en suite bath at Wisteria, a cosy house that's a short walk from Ganges centre. My room had a sitting area and access to the porch outside, where you can sit and watch the hummingbirds when they visit in the morning and evening. Everything was clean, the room was warm and...

The room was cozy with many special touches. Loved the heated floor in the bathroom! Handmade soaps, fresh water in the water jug, and bowls with treats for our dog made our stay special. There was even a basket of towels for our dog! The breakfast was amazing - Bev is truly a talented chef. Would definitely choose to stay...

We visited as a family of 3 and stayed two nights with Bev and Len. Our room was comfortable and the location was great to be within walking distance of the shops and parks. They set up a portable crib in our room for our 3 year old, and brought out a chest of toys in the common area for...

Beds were very comfortable, everything nice and clean; luckily did not have to share bathroom as no one booked in adjoining room. Did not have the breakfast but it looks rather sumptuous. Len, owner and Ellie, the housekeeper were very pleasant people. Rooms rather basic but definitely comfortable. The frogs singing away outside the window at night was just the...

Bev and Len were the best hosts. A fun and eclectic home. Breakfast was fabulous with fresh fruit, Dutch pancake and omelette made with Salt Spring Island cheeses. Thank you for a most comfortable bed, our sleep was fantastic. We'll be back!! Cyndi and Deb A sisters night away.

Second visit....Hostess Beverly is a wonderful chef, best breakfasts ever. Very comfortable and clean accommodation. A home away from home.. pet friendly, quiet, close to town centre and dog parks. Thank you Len and Bev.
