This B & B is located away from it all and is perfectly designed for a get-away. We stayed for two nights with friends and each couple had a lovely bedroom with ensuite 3-piece bathroom, and we had a common area with a fridge, microwave, dishes and cutlery. Liz was a wonderful host with lots of suggestions for places to...

Nice room good shower and bed if you travel a lot those are two important things to have. Great view and because you are on a bluff the eagles and other birds fly very close from where you are. Where else can you have breakfast and look through the window and see the deers having their own breakfast or having...

It was a pleasure staying at Arbutus Bluff. The room was homey and spacious, the views were beautiful, and the breakfasts were delicious (organic granola, quinoa cereal, french toast with berries, freshly baked muffins etc.). Liz was a very welcoming host and made sure my stay was as smooth as possible. The location of the B&B is great - <10...

We thoroughly enjoyed this B&B away from it all. Very relaxing, although not too accommodating for inexperienced bicycle riders like us! Found a trail through the park going back that was much easier to ride. The food was delicious and the bed very comfy.

Booked in for one night but we're going back for 2 or more very soon. An oasis on Gabriola, completely cozy and away from it all. Travel a long driveway, up to one of the highest spots on Gabriola, for views over the gulf islands. A deer wandered in front of us. Hummers danced in the winds. Perfect.

We stayed in both rooms over the May long weekend. I cam happy to support all the positive comments and excellent ratings for this B+B. Arbutus Bluff is located up a treed roadway on an open ridge so there is plenty of sunshine and a lovely view. Visiting deer and busy hummingbirds provided entertainment outside our rooms. After a full...
