We stayed one night in early September at Garden View Cottage B&B. From the time I contacted Joanne and Ric until we left for our hike, we received very prompt replies and excellent information about the area. Upon arrival, Joanne provided a tour of the property and suite as well as recommendations for places to eat dinner that night. The...

We were extremely happy at the Garden View Cottage and we were glad that they had availability (we were their last guests for the season). The downstairs suite has everything you would need and is extremely comfortable. It even has a washer and dryer for guests--something we have never seen before and much appreciated. The living room has a lovely...

We were welcomed like family! Usually not a huge fan of the B&B experience due to lack of privacy, but the Gardenview's set up is great. Guests have the spacious quiet basement to themselves (2 separate Queen bedrooms, shared bath, great wifi and comfy living room/kitchenette). Breakfast is upstairs with your delightful hosts Joanne & Ric. We only stayed one...

The pleasure was indeed mine to host this cheerful family. We had so much in common, books, movies, travel and we even exchanged some family history. We also hope you have the opportunity to travel north and stay with us again in the warmer weather, there is so much to explore in Wells Gray Park. Thank you again

It sounded all just ok when we inquired about this B&B at the tourist office in Clearwater. The young lady at the tourist office recommended the place.

An excellent B&B with very kind hosts and an amazing garden… close to the impressive Wells Gray Provincial Park. Well deserved Certificates of Excellence. Everything was complete, like the kitchenette… even with washer and dryer. Also the freshly served breakfast - with a view on that beautiful garden - was great. An absolute must (to stay). And we will come...

I could not agree more, Wells Gray Park should be a destination rather than just passing through, the park is full of trails, waterfalls, wild life and spectacular scenery. Thank you for posting this complete information on our B&B, we hope you visit us again.

Beautiful property with an amazing view of the mountains from the garden.
