“Incredible place, hospitality and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Stayed here during our trip up north. The most incredible B&B I have EVER stayed in. Hosts were amazing, food was to die for, all around 5 stars +

When you own a B & B you know how hard it is to find a place that meets your standards. With Long Lake we certainly did. Everything was perfect from the wonderful king bed, gas fireplace, cozy robes and slippers, to the little treats of Nanaimo Bars in the fridge. Yum! The location is perfect at the end of a very quiet street, tucked away on the water. Breakfast was very very good, served by chef de cuisine, Gordie and of course Janice. It felt like home away from home for us and we will go back when our time permits. Keep up the great work!!

This was far out the best accomodation of our trip! The rooms were majestic: we felt like kings, queens, princes and princesses. It is situated at a lake so you can go kayaking, canoeing or just take a rest in the jacuzi. Gordie an Janice know how to pamper you. What a pity we only stayed here for one night! Also Nanaimo is a nice place! We visited the island and had dinner at the pub which is also highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed here for three nights and just couldn't fault anything. Our suite was large, fully equipped, warm and private with a wonderful view over the lake - even in early November we enjoyed a couple of spectacular sunsets from there. Gordie and Janice were great hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning conversations with them and other guests, along with their excellent breakfasts. All in all a perfect place to stay in Nanaimo.

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
