You can see in the photos on their website that Einers Above Race Rocks is a special and very unusual bed and breakfast. The modern, beautiful building, designed by Ben Einer, sits atop a mountain overlooking evergreen-covered hills all the way to the Pacific below -- a majestic view. It was designed to take maximum advantage of its awesome setting, with numerous windows and private decks. The decor is sophisticated, upscale and very comfortable. And the Einers themselves give the place its homey feel.You can have utter peace and privacy, but the Einers are also warm, available,and helpful in sharing information about both the area and the journey that brought them to this heavenly spot. Bonnie delivers her scrumptious, bountiful breakfasts to your suite -- we had blueberry pancakes, fresh squeezed orange juice, fruit, omelettes and yogurt. (She had previously inquired about dietary restrictions.) And, she sends you off each day with the best picnic lunch, One of ours featured a selection of cheeses, fresh baguettes and Island-smoked salmon, plus fruit and tasty deserts. We were torn between sharing this place with all of our friends and keeping it all to ourselves. It's that special. If you are going to Vancouver Island, with a loved one or solo, it would be a mistake to miss the Einers experience.
