This was the most idyllic, quiet, perfect place to hide away and get some serious writing done. I appreciated the attentive, yet respectful service of the owners and found the booking process very simple and straightforward. I will definitely return to this lovely and comfortable place!

We loved this place, it exceeded expectations and we will definitely be returning. We stayed in the "Classic Cottage" and were more than impressed. It was cozy, quiet, comfortable and added so much to our trip to Bowen Island. The steam room in the shower, and heated floor when you step out was so relaxing. The fireplace in front of... More

I was getting married in Cowan's point, so I booked Ardtara Cottages for two nights - the night before my wedding and the night of. I booked well in advance but received little correspondence from the proprietors, even after I had paid in full! Evenso, a week or so before my wedding I sent a quick email to check that... More

I've stayed at a few B&Bs on Bowen over the years and this is one of the best. The cottage accomodation is beautifully finished, quiet and private. This is a great place for either a romantic getaway, or to do and do some writing, thinking or research. You can enjoy the secluded back part of the property, or you can... More

My husband and I booked a two night stay in the classic cottage for an Easter weekend getaway. Needless to say, we were very impressed with the food, the hospitality D'Anne provided, and the luxury of the cottage itself. The room was very clean and included everything we needed - a mini fridge, wine glasses, electric kettle, tea...there was even... More

My fiancee and I have stayed at Ardtara twice and will definitely be back. The breakfast and coffee are fantastic, the bed is comfortable, and the steam room/shower is unbelievable. Only comment would be that (for us at least) the wifi signal is very weak, but that may be a non-issue for other guests. In any event, we're adding Ardtara... More

We are glad you enjoyed your second stay with us and hope to see you again! Our wifi is supplied by Shaw and we are beholden to their technology and the weather at times plays a role- hopefully you rested more than worked :) More

My wife and I wife booked 2 nights at the Classic cottage for our one-anniversary and were really disappointed by Ardtara despite all the good reviews here. I believe the owner is new (her name is D'Anne) because the service was really bad compared to what other guests experienced on Tripadvisor. When we arrived on the day of our wedding... More

Our goal is always to make our guests happy. Most of our business is repeat and referrals from guests and we've been one of the busiest B&Bs on Bowen Island for the past six years. Some of your comments are correct and some might be a matter of cultural difference and misunderstanding. First and most importantly we are sorry your... More

My husband and I just spent one night at Ardtara and liked it very much. The cabin was tastefully decorated and cheerful, including the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast is worth mentioning; it was creative, delicious, and arrived piping hot. We would go back.

My husband and I stayed at this cottage for two nights recently. It was extremely peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful cottage, with heated floors in the bathroom. First time to the island, so our visit went well. We were looking for a oceanfront place, which this place did not have. There is no real oceanview either, which we did not mind... More
