Great stay. Wonderful owners, very clean and efficient with full breakfast. Right on the lake with use of a canoe.
Shared the two bedroom suite with our daughter and husband while touring properties to buy in the area of Nanaimo with you guessed it ...Nanaimo bars in the mini kit

We needed a place to stay for 1 night and this fitted the bill perfectly however would also suit for a longer stay. The accommodation is under the main house so there is some noise from water, etc but did not worry us. Nice backyard area to enjoy the sunset through the trees and

I stayed here 2 weeks ago as I was attending an event at Westwood Lake. This was one of the nicest B and Bs I’ve ever stayed at. It’s a private suite with the entrance at the back of the house, and is literally right on the shore of Cathers Lake, 5 min from Westwood Lake. The own

I absolutely loved staying at this bed and breakfast! I stayed here for two weeks while we were moving from Victoria to Nanaimo. Its more like a one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and sitting room that includes breakfasts. The place was extremely clean

The suite is very comfortable and the backyard overlooks a beautiful little lake. The breakfasts were delicious every day! The hosts are extremely gracious and helpful. Great food, great hosts, comfortable and convenient suite with a view... what more do you need in a B&B?

I have to be in Nanaimo from up-island for surgery on Friday April 29, 2016. I would arrive Thursday evening and leave Saturday morning so be in the suite for two nights. On Friday, I have to be at the hospital at 6:30 am - having showered - and cannot eat breakfast and would not return to the suite until late in the afternoon on Friday, unless the hospital decides I am not ready to be discharged. Is the suite available? Approximately how long would the taxi ride be to Nanaimo General? What are your rates?
I'm so sorry but we are already booked for April 29th. You can find our availability calendar on our website. I hope that your surgery goes well and wish you a speedy recovery. Kindest regards, James

we have a lab/dog that is travelling with us. So need to know if you are pet friendly. Also are you available May 2 for one couple?
Yes we do allow pets (we love dogs although we don't have one) , all we ask is that they be kept out of the bedroom (which is carpeted) and off of the furniture. The suite is available for May 2 (tonight).

Hi! We are not sure if we are coming to Nanaimo or not, but we would like to know if your bed and breakfast is available for us to check in on May 7 and check out on May 11? How much would it cost us if there were 2 of us and how much would it cost us if there were 4 adults? Thanks for letting us know. Cheryl Duckett
Hi Cheryl, I'm sorry but we are booked up for May 7. We do have availability for May 8-12 however. The rates are $89/night for double and $109/night quad. Those rates are all-inclusive, including a full breakfast each morning. Thanks for you inquiry and hope to see you! James Ireland Dockside B&B

Would you please quote us a rate for the suite with kitchenette for the following dates,May 21-May 23, 2015? It would be for two adults, my husband and myself. Thank-you. Connie Brady
Hello Connie, Our rate for those dates is $97/night all-in. I'm not sure if you want to stay on May 23 or will be checking out on that date. If you are staying 3 nights, check-in May 21, check-out May 24, then the rate would be $89/night. So for a two night stay the total cost would be $194 and for a 3-night stay it would be $$267. Let us know if you have any other questions. Cheers, James Ireland Dockside B&B

"Not just a room - it's a whole suite!"
"There is only one...and it's GREAT!"
"If the suite is booked it's worth enquiring as they have a spare room too."
"DO not forget tho stay over in Nanaimo when you come from the mainland ! Very peaceful location ! there is a Double Room possibility, great for a family of 4 just over-viewing the waterfront ! The price is excellent and worth to stay 2 days !"
