“Peaceful”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

The location was peaceful. Room attached to owners' home. Breakfast was granola, yogurt, bread, butter with one hot pastry delivered by Paul for 3 nights. No offer of clean towels, hand soap, but provided them when asked for. Cobwebs on skylights and in lamps.

Thank you Sharon for your feedback - It's always valuable to hear back from our guests.

When we decided to share our island home we asked both our gallery visitors and B&B owners: "What makes a great B&B?". From their responses we decided that elegant beauty, privacy and the ability to have a simple healthy breakfast at any time was desired. So our website and letter of confirmation both list the food choices that we provide for our guests, and mention our special welcome treat - freshly baked pastries, at least two kinds for each person, the first morning.
Our approach has been very well received.

Guests rarely request clean towels for shorter stays, but when requested we are always happy to provide them.
Cobwebs are never acceptable and we thank you for helping us to do a better job in that regard.

We feel badly because it always gives us great pleasure when our guests are so happy and have such a wonderful time at Bloom that they long to return.

“Serene, sleekly decorated, and hosted graciously”

On arrival, we thought that Anna and Paul's welcoming spirit and knowledge about the Island, coupled with the elegance of their rooms, would be the highlights of our visit. And they were. But we also came to appreciate that their establishment is located on the Island's quiet north end, dotted and surrounded by conifers and completely still. . .yet easily accessible to busier spots. Everything is graced by Anna and Paul's stunning sense of design and aesthetic impact--the buildings (including their gallery and home), their own artistic works (a sampling on display in the rooms, as well as in the gallery), the wooden gateway giving entry to the property, even the wood pile. The pond, walkways, and immediate grounds invite you to gaze, or maybe lounge lazily over a book. Our room came equipped with delicious foods for breakfast and snacks, as well as utensils for fixing simple dinners. We'll return.

“A heavenly spot!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a fantastic stay at the Orchard. The hosts are both artists, have a wonderful gallery, and are charming and welcoming.
The decor is elegant and simple, and the little kitchen perfectly equipped.
It was the highlight of our trip to Canada.

“relaxing and tranquil”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband and I stayed at Orchard Suite this summer. The decor was really tranquil, the place is super relaxing and the homemade granola was so yummy. Short drive distance to various beaches and a lake, great place all around!
