A beautiful home in a beautiful setting right on the lake edge. The room was light, beautifully decorated with a view over the lake. A very comfortable bed and a large en-suite with jacuzzi added to the comfort. Gordie & Janice were perfect hosts and had thought of all the 'little extras' like dressing gowns, slippers,a guest lounge with tv/videos...

I stayed at the Long Lake B&B back in March in the Madrona room. The accommodations were well appointed and very comfortable with a view of the lake. This suite was huge, sadly bigger than my condo. The hosts were terrific and the hot breakfast each morning was delicious. There was a shared BBQ, hot tub and non-motorized watersports available...

At the very end of a street in Nanaimo lies this beautiful B&B. Everything you can wish for is there: beautiful rooms, great view over a nice lake, friendly hosts and a lot more that you really have to experience yourself. It was one of the best places we have visited in a long line of B&Bs. Recommended? YES!!
