I travel to Powell River twice a year for work. I have stayed with Shirley and Roger 3 times and look forward to go back when ever they are there. I love the fact that they are so much like a part of the family now. I look forward to and so enjoy my visits, Shirley is mindful of what...

What a wonderful place to stay on our trip to Powell River.. The hosts (Shirley and Roger) made us feel like home. We felt like we were visiting our warm, sweet and loving family. They entertain and take good care of their guests so well and give you recommendations on what to do and where to go in the area....

We just spent three wonderful days in Powell River at the Beacon B&B. Our hosts, Shirley and Roger were so warm and welcoming; it felt like staying with good friends after the first hour. Shirley's breakfasts were delicious, generous and beautifully presented; our room was immaculately clean. They were both so helpful with information about the area. Thanks again, Roger...

We felt that we had known the owners for years and were guests in their home. Breakfast was amazing, we were treated to muffins for the road (even at 6:30AM). Shirley was a wealth of knowledge, she helped us make our dinner plans. We had our own bathroom and shower, the bedroom was so clean and comfortable. Roger was welcoming,...

We lucked out and ended up staying with Shirley and Roger after another B&B mistakenly double booked. That owner had already arranged for us to stay at the Beacon instead. Turned out the mistake was much to our favor. We stayed in the Serenity bedroom which features a private bathroom and a queen bed. I think I had the best...

We accessed Powell River on the BC Ferries Queen of Burnaby from Comox on Vancouver Island. The town appears to feature a paper mill but its biggest asset is its residents--in our case Shirley and Roger Randall, whose Beacon B & B looks out on theocean one hour from Comox. Their reception was unfailingly informative and super helpful as we...

After finishing a hike on the Sunshine Coast Trail I wanted an oasis for the night before carrying on. I got lucky and there was room for one night. The room had every detail supplied, the house was open and friendly. Roger and Shirley were marvelous. I was also the delighted recipient of one of Shirley's massages. The breakfast the...

Our stay at the Beacon was most enjoyable. Both Shirley and Roger were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was a feast for the eyes and a treat for the palate. So glad we stopped here for the night. Fortunately for us the other couple staying there was delightful.

“The Sunrise room has a little table in it, queen size bed and a nice large closet. It's more than room enough for two. And there are blinds and a sliding door that seperate you from the other room/living area, so you don't have to worry about privacy going from the room to your own bathroom.”
