Another reviewer says, "The setting is sublime; our room, the Hummingbird, looked over the rear of the property, which was alive with wildlife. The room was immaculate, comfortable and spacious, as were all the guest areas. Breakfast was an experience not to be missed. [Breakfast] each day was different and inventive (we were there for a week), and I thought about staying there forever!"

Rae Leigh Heights BnB
SANNICHTON, BRITISH COLUMBIA
"My husband and I wanted to find a place 'off the beaten path,' so to speak! This B&B is located 12 minutes from Victoria, northeast from Butchart Gardens, nestled in the forest on the mountain. The hosts greeted us so warmly and were a joy and so much fun to be around!" says a guest. Another reviewer continues to praise the property's natural beauty: "Situated on a hill at the very end of a quiet lane, Rae Leigh Heights BnB features stunning views of the Saanich Inlet and surrounding hills. While the trees stand tall about the property, the open garden offers sweeping vistas of the bay and landscape below. From the moment we stepped from the car, the fresh air and peaceful setting began working their magic on us. As our host said, if you squint a little bit, 'you can almost see the Vikings' sails making their way up the fjord.'"

Spinnakers Brewpub & GuestHouse
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA
"The rooms (in an old heritage home) are beautiful, and being in a physically separate building from the actual pub and restaurant (although close) meant they are nice and quiet. The rooms are large, and the little outdoor sitting area was pleasant. …The complimentary beer/truffle tasting tray in the pub was well appreciated," writes a guest. In addition to the inn's well decorated rooms and free beer tastings, travelers applaud the free breakfast at the adjacent restaurant: "We received vouchers for breakfast at Spinnakers as well; I had assumed this would be Continental breakfast and was going to go elsewhere, but it turned out we could order from their full menu. A truly great deal!"
La Loggia Art & Breakfast
"[Because the inn is] nestled in the heart of Montreal, we were able to explore so many neighborhoods during our stay, bike to the local market, and 'climb' Mont Royal! Each morning, we were greeted with a fresh breakfast of assorted cheeses, fruits, made-to-order eggs and delicious pastries. We stayed in the Garden Room, a cozy place to return to each evening with our private kitchenette, and [it is] one door away from the outdoor garden to enjoy a glass of wine before bed." La Loggia Art & Breakfast, an eclectic B&B located in Montreal's Gay Village, features a guestroom that was once a working art studio, as well as beautifully decorated accommodations and a locally sourced breakfast (with organic coffee) served in the inn's garden.

Fisher House Bed and Breakfast
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA
Travelers call this fabulous Arts and Crafts home near Victoria's inner harbor a "lovely B&B close to downtown." The grand Edwardian house, built in 1912, has original features such as beamed ceilings and stained glass windows. A reviewer writes, "The accommodations were extremely comfortable, quiet and very well appointed. The location, so close to downtown and the waterfront, simply can't be beat, and then if you factor in the very reasonable price, well, you must experience it for yourself. Our hosts Jen and Cal were so accommodating and can they cook! In the morning, we awoke to the intoxicating aromas of what promised to be an exceptional breakfast dining experience befitting a five-star resort."
