“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2007

We stayed at Heritage House in August 2006, so this review is a little late in coming. The neighborhood where the inn is located is a little off putting at first but once we found the quiet private drive leading up to the house, we were reassured that we had made the right choice. Our hostess, Sandy, was sitting on the patio reading a newspaper, and as soon as we drove in, she invited us to sit with her and offered us a glass of wine. Her husband, Larry, who was busy with chores on the grounds, joined us for a few moments. Before even seeing the inside of the place, we felt at home!

Our room was comfortable and clean, the rest of the house was immaculate and filled not only with wonderful antiques but also was the subject of a very nice story of a sea captain who brought his Japanese bride to Canada to escape the prejudice they were subjected to in his native England. He built the house for her. My husband and I are a Japanese-Caucasian couple and felt an immediate connection to the original owners of the home.

Our two nights with Larry and Sandy were way too brief. We would love to have stayed longer. The breakfasts were wonderful. We ate our first breakfast at the lovely formal diningroom table, but on the second morning, we joined Larry and Sandy for breakfast at the kitchen table, which we found preferable. Each afternoon after touring the wineries or downtown Victoria, we would retreat to the house and join our hosts on the patio for wine and conversation. They are funny, charming, and altogether delightful. They were helpful in guiding us to good restaurants and tearooms. (By the way, Sandy sent us to The Blethering Place Tea Room in Oak Bay in Victoria and it was to die for.)

Although as another reviewer stated, the home is about 20 minutes out of downtown Victoria, we would stay there again in a heartbeat and look forward to our next visit.

  • Liked — The host and hostess!!

The owners of this B&B are extremely friendly, the food is out of this world, and the accommodations are beautiful. It's a little bit out of town, but worth the drive there and the area is beautiful. Cannot say enough about the hospitality and the ambiance. This is a wonderful place to stay!
