“Great Place, Great Hospitality”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We have been B and B-ing and ocean kayaking in the Gulf Islands for 20 years, and have always tried to stay at accommodations on the waterfront. This year we couldn't find such a one on Pender Island, so we decided to go inland, and found Corbett House. What a gem! The house is a large, 111-year-old country farmhouse, lovingly restored by its owners, set in a wide, peaceful valley with grazing sheep. We felt immediately relaxed as we were greeted by Eve and John, had a quick tour of the house and then stepped into the orchard where we settled into comfy chairs in the shade and let any remaining tensions drain away. A little later we were invited for wine and cheese (beer for John) in front of Eve's studio -- she is a photographic artist whose work is shown on the island -- which borders the orchard and where we met the two sheep and three goats, including Gertrude, a Nubian goat who stands on her hind legs and "prunes" the lower branches of the apple trees. We had a lovely large room with king-size bed, with our own bathroom and tub. The shower a few steps down the hall is shared with the two other guest rooms. There is a large, well-furnished guest lounge which is the original living room, with many books, games, flat screen TV -- and good floor lamps to read by, which is important for us; most B and Bs we've been to recently don't have adequate lighting for evening reading. Our room had it's own small deck with a valley view, and one can sit/read etc. in wicker chairs on the front verandah, or in the orchard. Delicious, full breakfasts are served in the dining room.

The real treasures of this place are Eve and John. They are warm and gracious, enjoy meeting people, and do whatever they can to help you enjoy your stay. My wife has some dietary limitations and Eve provided her a special breakfast every day (four days). On our last night, Eve brought tea and cookies into the lounge for us. They are a great source of island knowledge, including where to eat, the best beach accesses and viewpoints, etc.

When we go back to Pender Island, Corbett House Country Inn will be our first and only choice.

Room Tip: If it is available, get the room with the king-size bed.

John and Eve made us feel right at home. Charming room with a breakfast to die for. Have a glass of wine while watching the sun set, as the goats frolic in the yard. Need I say more. Pender Island is our favorite gulf island, thanks to its natural beauty and laid back Penderites.

I, my husband and daughter spent 3 days with Eve and John at their country inn. The rooms were large with very comfortable beds; the breakfasts were delicious - every morning; the conversations at breakfast and with afternoon wine were informative; the recommendations of where to go and eat were spot-on.
I recommend the Corbett House Country Inn, without reservation. We truly enjoyed our stay.

That Eve, lemme tell ya, she's about as wholesome a gal as you'll find -- and knows how to crack you up without really trying. John's no slouch either. Both make a great pair -- in their own "crafty" way. Eve is a terrific published photographer with her photos displayed in various art galleries. John is the ever-persistent fisherman. And a guy who sets the TV record button to watch sports the next day -- even when it's live! ;-)

Then there's the goats and sheep who like to show-off their humorous side.

Mornings will have you salivating for the yummy breakfasts!

All-in-all, a wonderful B&B. Our 2nd visit, but hardly the last.

What a joy booking into Corbett House and finding an exquisitely renovated and rejuvenated island retreat.The attention to detail for all the creature comforts is what you might say, second to none. Requesting wheat free breakfasts was treated as the norm, with gastronomic delights worth boasting about. As for the beds? Heavenly!!
In a nutshell, if you are pondering a place to stay on Pender Island, look no further!

We had come over to Pender Island for the weekend on our bicycles. We had a different accommodation booked, but to our dismay the other accommodation had double booked us. We were in quite a pickle because the last ferry heading over to the mainland was leaving in a hour! The people that had double booked us felt horrible and called the Corbett House to see if they had any vacancies.
Fortunately John and Eve have this quaint little cabin on there property which they got ready for us. It was perfect! Totally self contained, private and set in a totally picturesque setting! We were thrilled and John and Eve were the perfect hosts.
I would highly recommend the Corbett House to anyone looking for a place to stay on Pender Island.
Thanks again John and Eve for helping us out in a pinch, we really appreciated it!

As we were not bringing a car to Pender Island, Eve offered to pick us up at the ferry. She was so welcoming. We arrived at the house with time to unpack and have a glass of wine on the porch, before we were asked along to go out for dinner (we paid our own) and a chance to see some of the Island. The following evening after dinner at a great restaurant, we were invited to watch the sunset with their friends.

It was such a relaxing time. So quiet too! We live on a busy street (bus route) in Vancouver, and it's noisy all of the time. I loved the peacefulness and we had the room with our own private deck, so we put our beach blanket out and star-gazed. We saw so many more stars than possible in the city. The king bed was so comfortable, that one morning, we slept in and had breakfast later than they had hoped. They were very understanding, even though they are busy people.

Breakfast was also outstanding everyday (we were there for 3 breakfasts) in a beautiful dining room. Eve is really into photography and art, and is a photographer herself and a member of a group on the Island. While we were there, they were in preparation for an art show in their apple orchard.

John (Eve's husband) and their dog, Lucy, were always outside doing something on the grounds. It was such a relaxing atmosphere we didn't want to leave. We hope to go back sometime. It's such an idyllic setting with very gracious hosts. They are also a short walk away from Café at Hope Bay, which i will also be reviewing. I highly recommend Corbett House to anyone looking for some peaceful R & R and star-filled nights.

Pender Island also has a system call Car Stops. it's basically hitchiking but sometimes from a designated stop. So, if ya want to be adventurous, and not pay a huge ferry bill to put your car on, leave it at home. You get to meet some interesting people, and even their pets. Some people will even go slightly out of their way to put you on a better road to get a ride faster. Great system!

Room Tip: It's quiet no matter which room you have. The extra perks to the room with the king-sized bed, i...
