We had the experience of staying at Ambraden Pond this past summer. We had an incredible experience from the warm welcome upon our arrival, to the most beautiful breakfasts we have ever had at a B&B. Joan and Chris are incredible hosts and we cannot wait until we get to return for another visit to the island!

Tucked downhill on a quiet country lane, in a wonderful Cowichan Valley location. My husband and I had a delightful stay last month at the very beautiful Ambraden Pond B&B. A beautiful home (note though that there are stairs to the rooms upstairs) with very gracious hosts. We enjoyed the best B&B breakfast that we’ve ever had, and the setting...

We have stayed at Ambraden Pond yearly for almost a decade. Chris and Joan are the consumate hosts. The setting is unique; a gorgeous house overlooking a private pond that is well-suited for swimming should you choose. The B&B is designed specifically to provide a separation between guests and hosts, if desired. The design is contemporary and subtle, providing a...

The lovely hosts Joan and Chris created a wonderful secluded oasis amidst nature but very close to the quaint towns and vineyards in the Cowichan valley. Their very own large pond invites for a swim in summer. The whole property -the gardens, the house and the rooms- are very tastefully set up. They make you feel like home right away...

We booked two nights in Ambraden Pond while visiting family in the area. The B&B is stunning both in the setting and the decor. The rooms are very comfortable; the beds and bedding are to die for, and our breakfasts were exceptional on both mornings. The guest sitting room is bright, comfortable and looks out over the pond. We could...

Finding a place on the Internet and it actually is amazing... Priceless. Joan and her husband are lovely and their home and land is so beautiful and calming. I almost didn't want to write a review so I can still get a reservation here when I need one!! They deserve to be booked up. We had a great stay. Joan...

We were greeted by Joan and after a tour of the house, we sipped a glass of wine and had good conversation with Joan and her husband Chris. The property is beautiful with a huge pond, complete with ducks paddling contentedly. The room was well appointed, large, held a very comfy bed and looked over the pond. The attached bathroom...

This place is a treasure. Hidden off the road it is beautifully appointed with big comfy beds, sunshiny rooms and huge stylish bathrooms. Perfect for honeymoon couples or anyone travelling who would like a deluxe experience off the main roads. Hosts Ann and Chris are delightful and so helpful with ideas for day trips and nearby restaurants and wineries. Ann...

My fiancé and I stayed in the coach house for a 4 nights, and spent an evening drinking wine with Joan and her husband Chris. They are delight to talk to and even more fun to get to know.

“Based on our brief look at the rooms a couple of years earlier, we requested Room No. 1 because of the placement of the bed, the position of the en suite bathroom, the particular view, and the fact that this room shares only one wall with another guest room.”
