“Brian and Maureen L.”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Roger and Shirley make you feel welcome immediately. They are very down to earth people with a great sense of humour. Their place has a great view of the water where you can watch eagles and the odd whale. Huge and delicious breakfasts, quiet clean rooms and close to town for suppers. We were on a motorcycle, there was a nice easy to park cement pad out back. We would stay there again in a heart beat.

We only stayed one night but wished it could have been more after eating the breakfast! It was the best food we had on our entire trip. We wish now that we had taken pictures as the presentation was surpassed only by the taste! Shirley and Roger are warm and genuine hosts and we feel like family after just one night. Be sure to plan some time to sit on the deck at sunset to watch the eagles and get a first hand account of the history of Powell River and the Beacon B&B itself. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality!!!

Shirley & Roger are a wonderful couple and welcoming hosts. Your generous offer to greet me at the airport was very much appreciated. The B & B is clean and comfortable, the view spectacular and the breakfasts outstanding. Look forward to seeing you again!

We had the ultimate pleasure of spending 7 days at Shirley & Roger's b&b. The food was beautifully presented, absolutely delicious and very healthy too. Remember to bring your appetite because the breakfast is big. The BEACON is kept very clean, the view is unbelievable and we really enjoyed Shirley & Roger. They're great! We will come back.

Roger and Shirley did a fine job of making me feel at home. Room was not large, but was well ecqipped, clean, and comfortable. Bath is shared, but I was only guest. Breakfast was excellent, and Roger entertained with company and one liners. Thanks for you hospitality.

Thank you for taking the time to review Beacon B&B Spa. We truly enjoyed the opportunity of meeting you. Just a little clarification on the rooms. Both our rooms have private bathrooms. The Sunrise has a private bathroom adjacent to the room and Serenity Ensuite has all bathroom facilities right in the room. We hope to see you back in BC sometime soon.

If you want location, genuine kindness, great food, cleanliness, & great people...then stay here. We stayed for two nights and loved the information Roger & Shirley provided during our stay. We loved the beach walk and drives they suggested. The restaurants they directed us to were very good as well. We were very comfortable during our stay and enjoyed the view of the water in the common area. Their sense of humour added to our stay...and we laughed a lot.

During our visit we stayed in the ensuite. However, we would have enjoyed staying in the other room too as they have made it private from everything else with sliding doors. Smart idea. Their home is close to downtown and the ferry terminal.

We would stay here again if visiting Powell River.

We stayed one night at this B&B while visiting a relative in Powell River. Although right on a 'main' road, it was very quiet, as Powell River is a small community. The water views (and they are very expansive) are right across the street and you can use the telescope in the host's livingroom to take a look at what's happening. The queen bed was comfortable and the room was a pretty average size for a bedroom, but outfitted with all the basics for travellers including robes, slippers, extra pillows, small table and chairs, ceiling fan, as well as a flat screen TV mounted on the wall. We stayed in the "Sunrise Room", and the bathroom was right next door. A sliding door can be pulled closed between the host's livingroom/kitchen and the guest's area here. Bathroom is large and clean with a well-stocked amenities cupboard and nice in-floor heating infront of the toilet. There is a vertical blind that can be closed off between the Sunrise Rm. & it's bathroom and the other room (Serenity Suite) available (this one has it's own ensuite). Please note the bedrooms are at the back of the house, but the view of the water can be enjoyed from the front room, or walk across the street and stroll the beach.

Breakfast was beautiful, delicious and amazing with many added little touches. The host, Roger, was a real card and quite attentive. Shirley, his wife is equally wonderful and baked heart-shaped, healthy banana muffins for us 'to go' the morning we left. I would definitely recommend this nice little place.

Please note that their payment policy is cash, no cards for payment, although they are used for reserving spots.

Room Tip: Serenity Suite has a private ensuite if you don't want to walk next door to the bathroom
