Great Getaway!

We are from the Southern US where hospitality is revered. Our stay at the Fisher House was absolutely fantastic and exceeded our expectations. Great food, great location, and cozy accommodations all combine for a pleasant getaway in a fun city on the western seaboard.


Great stay!

We had an excellent stay at Fisher House, the room and private bathroom were beautifully furnished and the host was welcoming and helpful. We would recommend it to our friends and family and come back gladly any time!


Cosy B&B in residential area

3.8 on July 31, 2016

Very cosy B&B in a quiet residential area of Victoria, a 15 minute walk away from downtown Victoria. Comfortable room, standard size for a B&B. Guests have their own bathroom, but it is located outside the room across the hallway. Our host Jennifer was very welcoming and gave us helpful explanations about Victoria. The breakfast was delicious.


Great location- lovely rooms

Great location, and the rooms were lovely. Great breakfasts. We would have preferred the bed to be made each day and the trash emptied.

We loved staying at the fisher house. Getting to know the history of the house and the area was really cool. Our room was beautiful. I loved the decorations and the balcony. The location was within walking distance to the beach and really great restaurants.


Wonderful Experience

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The breakfast was amazing and our room was in perfect condition. Definitely recommend the room with the balcony! Jennifer gave us great recommendations on what to do with our short length of stay as well as recommendations for dining. We recommend staying here!


Great Stay

4.4 on May 15, 2016

We stayed here two nights and found it to be very nice. Jennifer and Cal were very hospitable. Jen provided us a map and gave us recommendations on where to eat. She showed us the accommodations and everything was as good or better than advertised. They could be easily reached via doorbell if anything was needed, but were not nosey at all. The room and area was quiet at night. Best of all, we woke up to two superb meals each morning. Thank you Fisher House for a wonderful experience.


another good time

4.6 on April 06, 2016

I returned to Fisher House as it is near to downtown, not too over the top when it comes to period decor, has off-street parking, has reasonable rates and the food is good. There wasn't any choice given for breakfast time, which was fine on this particular stay, but if I had been staying for work reasons I would have needed to eat earlier, so I don't know if that was possible or not. One thing I'd like just to point out that would be a good thing to have is a reflector on the outside stone wall by the drive-way. It would make backing in much easier. But I would recommend to stay here.


Fabulous Arts & Crafts Heritage home

We walked on to the Coho Ferry from Pt Angeles and strolled through the quaint James Bay neighborhood to stay at this stunning B & B. Jennifer is an excellent host who also loves to cook so our breakfast was absolutely beautifully presented and very tasty. All details in this home are exceptional, you will love returning to a time when decor is handmade with quality materials and craftsmanship. Highly recommend!


Exceptional!

4.6 on March 02, 2016

The Fisher House B&B is probably one of the nicest we've ever stayed in. The décor is tasteful, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The only room available with ensuite was already booked, and so we chose the "Florence" and had to walk down the hallway to our own private bath. Since we're seniors, this might have been more of an issue for our nighttime visits, however, we were pleased to see that there is a watercloset right across the hall. Breakfast was delicious, substantial and beautifully presented. The location in James Bay is ideal for anyone who wishes to leave the car parked and walk to all the many nearby sights and shopping. We look forward to visiting again and heartily recommend this lovely B&B. Do let Jennifer suggest restaurants. She's a wonderful cook herself and her suggestions are perfect.
