This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast.I must say it was most pleasurable the home was warm cozy and absolutely emaculate she has everything there for you it was much more than I had expected. I got there in the early evening she graciously invited me for tea and cookies and Jacquie gave me history on the house and area . In the morning a fantastic breakfast it was truly a 5 star experience Jacquie is an amazing kind person who truly opens her home and treats her guests to a quality stay all at a very reasonable price. I totally recommend her place. Thank you Jacquie.” (source on Trip Advisor)

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac a short drive from the bijoux shopping paradise of downtown Duncan, you will be assured the restful privacy you crave. Enjoy a glass of wine on a sun-bathed patio, or sit in the shade of the trees and read a good book.
Nanaimo and Victoria are both within an hour’s scenic drive. And you are a few minutes away from historic Cowichan Bay, with its quaint village and working marinas.
Closer to home, we are within 15 minutes of Queen Margaret’s, Queen of Angels Duncan Christian Schools, Vancouver Island University, the Performing Arts Centre Duncan and Chesterfield Sportsplex.
The BC Forest Discovery Centre is just up the road and a 20 minute drive will have you in Chemainus for the dinner theatre there or to view the murals.
As mentioned, Cowichan Bay is a quaint and lovely working bay with bakeries, cheese makers, galleries, boat repair, potteries and restaurants. Not to be missed!
A drive through rural Cobble Hill will find you on winding roads through beautiful farmland past several Cowichan Wineries and Merridale Cider and farm gate stores. Keep on going south to Shawnigan Lake and you will find beaches, boat launches and swimming. To the west of us and up Highway 18 is the community of Lake Cowichan on Cowichan Lake. The Cowichan River starts there, and throughout the summer, tubers start at the top and tube their way back to Duncan.
Drive back to town via Riverbottom Road, passing Skutz Falls and riverside parks.
The Cowichan Valley has a little bit of everything and certainly something for everyone!
