Free small bottle of wine and good fresh cooked breakfast. Whirlpool with view outside. Would stay there again if in the area once more. Al and Elaine are...

I picked this place off the Internet because of the view down the Sound. Photos can be, shall we say, carefully staged; but this one is real. Clean, comfortable, by B.C. prices very reasonable. Host/Hostess are neat people. Your morning omelet eggs come from the farm. I commented on their excellent taste, and when we left, host gave us a...

The Prancing Horse Retreat is tucked away from the urban chaos our family is so used to. The view is breathtaking and the suites (we stayed in both Deluxe #3 and Luxury #4) are cozy and comfortable - it honestly feels like you're staying in an extended family's home. Alan and Elaine are the loveliest hosts; both are incredibly friendly...

It was so perfect...the setting, the room, the food all excellent. Elaine and Alan were perfect and so willing to please us and help us have a terrific time for our 3 days and nights. Loved Louie the cute cat, and animals at the farm.

We had such a comfortable and relaxing time at this uniquely located B&B just 20 minutes north of Victoria with an amazing view overlooking the Finlayson Arm and stretching to the mountains. The property itself is picturesque with gnarled arbutus and rock-hugging firs providing a backdrop to the colourful gardens where a terraced rockery leads to multi-tiered decks hosting an...

The view is amazing. The hosts, Al and Elaine, were friendly and had great advice about the area. Breakfast was very good. It's close enough to Victoria, but far enough for peace of mind and quiet. The room we had was neat and clean. A great place for a get away with the wife.
