“Spectacular view, great location and perfect hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

This is the perfect place to stay for total relaxation and spectacular views. Our room was twice the size of our hotel room in Vancouver the following night. It was completely private from the rest of the house and the other guests. The hot tub is in the perfect location right on the deck overlooking the lake. Gordie and Janice are so relaxed and friendly, you hardly know they are there. This is as good as it gets.

We stayed at the Long Lake Waterfront B&B for our 5th anniversary and it was fantastic. Gordie and Janice were very accomodating and were able to offer us a later check in time. Our suite was equipped with everything we could have asked for, including hot-tub friendly wine glasses! We thoroughly enjoyed the view, kayaking, the hot tub, and a ride on the jet-ski-boat.

This is a great place to stay. It has everything, great location, view, fun things to do and great hosts. Gordie and Janice were perfect hosts. We had just finished a nearly month long trip to Alaska and this B$B was the perfect way to end the most incredible trip. We will be returning when we can spend more time.

Room Tip: The lake front room was wonderful

We only stayed here for one night unfortunately, but it was fantastic. The location was really lovely, right on the waterfront. I think Gordie and Janice will remember us as we managed to capsize their canoe in the lake! Gordie and Janice were on hand with a pile of towels and a sense of humour. We jumped in the hot tub to warm up!! The room we stayed in was immaculate and I very impressed by the attention to detail. Lots of little thoughtful extras were in place, i.e. woollen slippers, popcorn for movie watching. The breakfast was incredible. We would recommend this B&B without hesitation

This B&B was in a fantastic location. The room we had was deffinitely more of a suite and was spotless, whilst overlooking the lake. The hosts, Janice and Gordie could not have been more helpful, they arranged a whale watching tour for us, (be careful if your sea sick!) which was good fun. You can also go kayaking on the lake with the boats available, which we took advantage of, and the ride around the lake after breakfast with Gordie was great. My husband even did a bit of fly fishing, but caught nothing, which is not unusual for him!!. At breakfast we had a chance to meet the other guests and swop gossip about where to go and what to see. Would love to go back and given the chance next year, we will. thanks for the great hospitality.

This B&B was within easy travelling distance of the Vancouver ferry and in a great location on the side of the lake. The views through the old trees were lovely.
The bedroom was spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Our hosts were really helpful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable, including taking us a trip round the lake on the jet ski!
The breakfast was also really good. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Long lake Waterfront, Our room was lovely, clean & well appointed. The outlook is beautiful & breakfast is great. Janice & Gordie go out of their way to make sure their guests feel welcome.

We would not hesitate to recommend.
