“Nice B&B in a dull town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Tall trees is a fine bed & breakfast an Jaimy is a very enthusiastic and helpful host and she makes a mean breakfast!
The rooms and bathroom are very luxurious but don't get scared by the bear on your way in.

Unfortunately in Port Hardy itself isn't much to do and it's not a very exciting place either, But it is the perfect stop when you come from the Inside Passage ferry late in the evening or if you have to leave very early because of it.

Arriving at Tall Trees (which was very easy to find) was like arriving back home. It had a great feel and it was easy to put your feet up and relax. We were greeted by the host Jaimie with a big smile and questions about our drive up. We stayed in the South Suite, it had a very comfortable king sized bed (I wanted to take it home) and a lovely soaker tub. Jaimie offered us a cup of tea and a homemade blueberry muffin and then we unpacked our things for our three night stay. We explored the area (the awesome trail, right in the backyard!) the Cannery and the Museum of Northern British Columbia. The quirky shops in Prince Rupert kept us busy for hours, and with the delicious breakfasts that Jaimie made us (she makes killer French toast!) we had all the energy we needed to explore all day! I will be back to Tall Trees again and would definitely recommend it to friends, family and anyone looking for a home away from home. A wonderful experience!

My wife and I stayed at the Tall Trees B&B for one night before heading on to Alaska - what a special treat. We stayed in the North Suite (which we highly recommend) The room was enormous with King sized bed and a very large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub that was excellent after a busy day full of hiking and taking in the sites of cow bay.
The host Jaimie was wonderful, and full of helpful information on things to see and do on our very short stay in town. She directed us to a trail just behind the house that was outstanding, and later sent us to Dolly's where we enjoyed all the fresh seafood we could eat. For the rest of the evening we relaxed and enjoyed a movie from the large movie selection which was located just outside of our room.
For breakfast in the morning she spoiled us by making belgian waffles with berries and syrup. We had such a wonderful stay that I do not feel I need to point out any faults - however I will say that the television was rather far from the bed, and the room would benefit from adding a couple of chairs to be closer.
We will definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend this B&B to anyone who wants to stay at a home away from home.

My friend and I had planned our child/husband free getaway months ago and were really looking forward to our stay at tall trees (given the reviews); however when we arrived we were VERY disappointed. Our host, while very nice, was not there to greet us so we let ourselves in. Our first impression was the place had a musty smell and was not clean. The photos of the room were deceiving (much smaller) and as we have both stayed at b & b's in the past, and had amazing experiences to compare this to, we were also very disappointed with the breakfasts. Jamie, the host, was very helpful however she was not around very much and as a result we ended up having to greet guests a couple of times, once was at 11pm at night (and we were already in bed). Tall trees was in a great location but given what we paid and our dissatisfaction we would not recommend tall trees to anyone and we certainly will not be returning.

My stay at Tall Trees was my first bed and breakfast experience and I wasn't sure what to expect. When I travel for business I am used to rather high-end accommodations. If Tall Trees is typical of a bed and breakfast experience, this will be my preferred accommodations in the future. This place is a little gem! And Jaimie is an amazing hostess! I was given a warm greeting and a complimentary glass of wine. She showed me to my room where there was a mini-fridge with drinks and snacks (no extra charge) and plenty of toiletries. Very clean and roomy. I did a little hike in the forest directly behind the house (easy access by a path directly beside the house). This is a lovely location. It's also an easy walk to "town" for stores/restaurants (and Jaimie was spot-on with her suggestion for dinner - wish I could remember the restaurant). Jaimie prepared a great breakfast the next day. She is very friendly and the place is warm and cozy. I would highly recommend Tall Trees to anyone looking to be a little spoiled on their trip.

We really really wanted to like this place, the pro shots sold us, as well as the reviews. It was to have been our splash-out within 17 nights on the road and ferry.
This review is based on a 1 nite stay.
Regrettably, to call this elegant with luxurious touches emphasizing fine dining and wine is a stretch.
We travel BnB for the personal service and intimacy with the neighbourhood. This requires staff to be on site and or available, especially at check-in. Jaime was out of town for a dental so we were left a note with instructions, apparently this is not uncommon. That meant we had to find our own way around town (pretty easy), pick out a food joint (Dolly's Fish Market---great if u like grease), figure out the wifi and TV (a rare luxury for us), none of which we could do despite 4 uni degrees between us.
The east suite was indeed large, perhaps over-sized. It lacked a chair or two, and dressers or luggage stands as all our gear had to be left on the floor. Towels were past their shelf-life, bathroom lacked space to lay out your toiletries (though they incl some), no bathrobe, king bed with thick cottony sheets (after the ferry it was great).The build of the home isn't so much eclectic as it is uneven in design, repair and upkeep. Anywhere else this can be overlooked and not even noticed.
We regret we didn't have time to check out the nearby trail.
But for $120 after such a professional website, reviews and photos, one should expect and receive more.
Jamie did come through and assist with our exit strategy, and she is nice. Homemade muffins were plentiful and yummy, and she directed us to a community bottle of wine. Her breakfast was made to order and superb. But even she could not save unrealized expectations and an over-priced, over-rated BnB.

We arrived late off the ferry so maybe that and being from the UK, made ours unlike the very favourable reviews of other travellers! Being offered a decent cup of tea would have been very welcome(and I am sure the very pleasant lass in charge would have made us one had we asked but with two other couples arriving at the same time, it seemed a bit unfair) but being offered a bottle opener and popcorn! was just bizarre!! Some kind of building work was in process from our room, we could not make no sense of TV or air conditioning despite instructions - but it was only one night. Breakfast produced a very unusual scrambled egg, more fried and scrunched, but very friendly...
