We recently spent two nights at Ambraden Pond in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. Our stay exceeded our high expectations so much so that it was hard to leave! Joan and Chris are kind and welcoming, the breakfast both mornings was ample and delicious and the home was beautiful, warm and inviting. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Ambraden...

Joan and Chris ( and Lulu the dog) were great hosts during our two day stay at Ambraden Pond. The location is beautiful and their very tastefully appointed home provided roomy, private accommodation for their b and b guests. We will be back. John and Diana

Spending two nights at Ambraden Bed & Breakfast was a rejuvenating experience, wanting to be extended. It is a well hidden jewel in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, surrounded by lush forest and reflected in its own mirror-like pond. Ambraden B & B provides contemporary, uncluttered accommodations, with scrumptious breakfasts. Joan and Chris Kolk provide a welcoming, informal atmosphere, setting the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Joan & Chris' stunning home. A beautiful location, so comfortable and stunning inside and out. Joan and Chris had many recommendations re touring the area. Breakfast was delicious. We hated to leave, and hope to return.

I'm a guy and I hate B & B's. But this B & B I thought was great! My wife loved it, too. So, if you're a guy and want to make your wife happy, stay here. You'll be glad you did. Read the other reviews if you want details about what to do and what to expect. You won't...

I have never stayed at a more welcoming, beautiful and relaxing B&B than at Ambraden Pond. My husband stayed at Ambraden Pond for three weeks while working in the area and I visited for a week during that time. The hosts, Joan and Chris, are friendly, helpful and create a welcoming environment for guests. The rooms are large and spacious....

i found out about Ambraden Pond through www.purpleroofs.com . i called about a week or so prior to our arrival, and was assured there was space. nervous that there was no confirmation email or deposit required, but that's how they roll in Canada--very laid back! We drove down the long, wooded driveway to a very private escape and was greeted...

Upon arrival, hosts Joan & Chris feel like old friends. Rooms were lovely with sumptuous beds, spacious baths, and thick towels. Slept like a rock after frogs lulled me to sleep. Breakfasts were exquisite. One morning was bread pudding French toast! My husband even did some casting in the pond with Chris's rod. Can't wait for our return visit!

My husband and I spent two wonderful nights here in late August. We do not like B&Bs but took a chance and were delighted that we did so. Joan and Chris are wonderful hosts who have an innate sense of when to be present and when to be invisible. I cannot say enough about how fantastic they and their home...

“Based on our brief look at the rooms a couple of years earlier, we requested Room No. 1 because of the placement of the bed, the position of the en suite bathroom, the particular view, and the fact that this room shares only one wall with another guest room.”
