Our family stays in Nanaimo once or twice a year to visit relatives, and as a base for our Vancouver Island exploring. We had stayed at other hotels in the downtown Nanaimo area, and came to Millstone Manor looking for a different experience. We loved it, and have made it our home away from home in Nanaimo. While only minutes away from town, you truly do get to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. Hosts Audrey and Steve do an excellent job of balancing warm hospitality and respectful privacy. The Gate House is perfect for when we're on "vacation time" - breakfast whenever we're ready, and coming and going throughout the day. Over our several stays we've joined in a backyard bbq, had rides on Steve's tractor, brought the grandparents for stays, enjoyed Audrey's afternoon tea, and had excellent bagged lunches for our island adventures. Our kids start talking about Audrey's Nanaimo Bars that will be waiting for them on the coffee table even before we're off the ferry!
