Cobble House Bed & Breakfast

3105 Cameron-Taggart Road , Cobble Hill, BC V0R 1L6 Canada (Show map)


Cobble House Bed & Breakfast is a one-level home on a forested acreage with a creek along one side, in the wine region of Vancouver Island, mid-way between Victoria and Nanaimo. Enjoy the birds at their feeders, or catch a glimpse of other wildlife, such as deer. We offer the peace and quiet of the countryside, but are centrally located to explore southern Vancouver Island. Our three very spacious guestrooms, the Hummingbird (with queen bed and Jacuzzi), the Heron (queen bed and double futon and shower, so accommodates up to 4), and the Jay (2 twin or a king size antique bed and shower) are decorated with antiques and comfortable furniture. All rooms have a private bathroom and sitting area and come equipped with a small fridge and coffee & tea making facilities. Guests are welcome to relax by the Russian fireplace in winter in the Great Room, or on our flower-filled deck in the summertime.

B&B at its best.

4.8 on March 31, 2016

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy a natural setting while being pampered by our hosts. Our room was so large we could have moved in half of our possessions! Breakfast was delicious and so prettily presented. The location meant we could lunch at Merridale Cidery and have dinner at Unsworth Winery, both star locations to visit.

We had a lovely stay in Cobble House - thank you very much Ingrid for welcoming us and making us wonderful breakfasts!

Outstanding B&B

4.6 on October 09, 2015

Cobble House Bed and Breakfast has to be the best B&B we have ever booked into. The setting is sublime, our room, The Hummingbird, looked over the rear of the property and was alive with wildlife, the room was immaculate, comfortable and spacious as were all the gust areas. Breakfast was an experience not to be missed, each day was different and inventive (we were there for a week), I thought about staying there for ever! Our host, Ingrid, was attentive to any dietary ends and a mine of information with regards local attractions and details of the surrounding areas, which was invaluable, as we were looking for an area to relocate to. Needless to say we will be returning to sample Ingrid's breakfasts again in the near future. PS Check out her collection of napkin rings, a new one each day!

Tranquil and enjoyable stay at Cobble House

It was my second visit to the Cobble House, and I again found what I was looking for - clean, welcoming, and peaceful property and a great host, Ingrid, who makes you feel like at home. It is a gem of a location and yet you are close to anything you may want to do to enjoy your day on the island. Ingrid was very helpful and available to answer any question we had and made our stay very pleasant. I hope to return soon.

Exceptional B&B

5 on July 22, 2015

We stayed in the Hummingbird Room of the Cobble House Bed & Breakfast. The king bed was comfortable and the spacious room had a seating area and a large window to view the picturesque yard. The window coverings were excellent to provide darkness for sleeping. The ensuite was beautiful and well stocked with towels and bath products. The breakfasts were well beyond what we expected and absolutely delectable. Our kind and friendly hosts made our stay very enjoyable. I would have liked to have stayed longer as it was very restful. I highly recommend this B&B.

Bed and Breakfast Excellence

5 on March 04, 2015

The Cobble House Bed and Breakfast is a gem. The food is outstanding and the hosts, Ingrid and Simon are friendly, interesting and gracious. Our only concern with giving this property a great review is they will be booked when we want to stay again. The rooms are clean, the linen is crisp and the beds are exceedingly comfortable. Breakfast was gourmet, abundant and filling. Ingrid went out of her way to prepare just-out-of-the-oven gluten-free muffins and scones to accommodate a Celiac member of our group. Truly above and beyond our expectations! The setting is idyllic, relaxing and quiet. Better than a home away from home.

Cobble Houe Humingbird Room

4.6 on September 08, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Cobble HIll B&b on August 2nd and 3rd, 2014. Neither of us had much experiance in the B&B arena so we did not know what to expect. We were plesantly surprised. The room we occupied, the Hummingbird room, was very nice, exceptionaly clean and quite. We are not ones to spend a great deal of thime in our room but the time we did spend there was pleasant. Brekfast was at nine and was much better then any Hotel brekfast we have ever had. We discovered staying at a B&B gives you an opportunity to talk to a local, in this case Ingrid the owner, who gave us the run down on what to do and see. A custome in many a Canadian home, including Cobblle House, is to take ones shoes off before entering. Thus on my next visit I will bring a pair of slippers. The location of the facility was serene and scenic. We would definatly stay at the Cobble House again.

My First Bed and Breakfast-a Wonderful Experience

5 on September 07, 2014

My daughter and I had the opportunity to stay at the Cobble House for one night. Ingrid made us feel like family with great hospitality. Her home is lovely and spacious and the breakfast was delicious. She served a great scone for breakfast and shared the recipe with me. I have not made the scones, but it will be hard to make mine as good. This was my first bed and breakfast and now I am convincing my husband to give "bed and breakfast" a try. If I return to the area, I will definitely try to stay here again. Thank you, Ingrid

Excellent base for exploring the Cowichan Valley

About the innkeepers

Your hosts designed and built their home with B&B in mind. In July 2016 they are starting their 23rd year of operating Cobble House B&B. They are collectors of antiques, gargoyles by a local artist, and all sorts of things. Simon rows and has been making some extended cycling trips in Europe, and Ingrid is a curler in the off-season, and also works for BC Innkeepers, the provincial B&B association in BC. Simon is a former Executive Chef so food and wine are definitely of interest too!
