My husband and I planned a last minute hiking trip to Golden Ears Provincial Park last weekend and found this amazing B&B near the entrance to the park. The gardens of the home are lovely and sit right on the river which made for peaceful sleep hearing the flowing water that night. There is a private upstairs patio off the bedroom with reclining chairs that are perfect for lounging around. The hosts are very friendly and made a delicious breakfast the next morning including fresh fruit and a yummy vegetable frittata. The guest suite includes two large rooms. Downstairs is a room with tv, hide-a-bed couch, and table and chairs. There is then a spiral staircase leading up to a bedroom and large bath with jacuzzi tub and the private patio. We will definitely want to stay there again.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We look forward to seeing you again!

We love nature, meeting new people and time with our family. Our activities center around this and caring for our home and property. We love to spend time with family, and are often with our grandkids. We love our place, we built this home ourselves - it continues to keep us busy. In the warm weather we head for the mountains and quad ~ we love to get into the back woods and mountain tops.

R&R Favorite French Toast with Apple Compote
Our French Toast has developed over time... Myra begins with local farm fresh eggs, sweet cream and deluxe specialty raisin bread. She crisps it up in a buttery pan and serves it with Apple Compote she also preps in her kitchen. Sometimes sprinkled with toasted Pecans or Almond slivers, dusted with powdered sugar or Vanilla infused sugar and a touch of cinnamon. Served with sides of choice...sausages, bacon, hashed browns, smashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, browned, mushrooms... Always with a fresh fruit bowl and honey yogurt, coffee / tea and juice. We've heard many compliments!
