“Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We recently spent two nights at Seasons Above the Bay, taking in the Cowichan Valley Wine Festival and enjoying the local golf courses. Our stay with Bev and James was made so comfortable by the thoughtfulness that they have put into the suites and the breakfasts which we enjoyed on their patio overlooking Cowichan Bay. Seasons Above the Bay is centrally located to all that the area has to offer. We appreciated having our own access to our suite as we were busy in the evenings and didn't have to worry about inconveniencing our hosts. We would not hesitate to recommend Seasons Above the Bay to friends and family and look forward to a return visit ourselves.

Rosemary, thank you for your wonderful endorsement! We enjoyed having you both, especially visiting by the fire in the mornings over breakfast. So glad you experienced much of what this beautiful valley has to offer. We look forward to having you stay with us again! Bev and Jim.

A beautiful place to stay in a serene setting! We were treated to delicious breakfasts with very local ingredients some from the garden! They were lovely hosts and would definitely recommend staying here. Close walking distance to the little shops and restaurants.

what a lovely haven to arrive at after a long hot summers day. before seeing our accomodations , i was drawn into our hosts thoughtfully designed gardens, full of exquisite colour
with towering flowers, grasses and berries ripe on the vine. this was toward the end of august. i am impressed! also a small kitchen garden from which the fresh herbs are picked . let me complete this garden scenario by saying it included 2 cats which totally relieved any stresses of the day. Once in our luxurious rooms ,fresh flowers,wonderful beds,bedding and pillows, artisan soaps and fluffy towels.Sweet dream land! hosts bev and jim provided a vast and delicious breakfast selection in the am. that will set you up for the day ahead. try the waffles.mmm

What a wonderful place to stay! The rooms are luxurious, well-appointed and incredibly lovely. Bev and Jim do a fantastic job of catering to your needs, pampering you and helping you to relax and unwind. The breakfast foods are delicious and varied and the attention to detail with presentation of food and, I must say, in all other areas of the B&B is second to none. Bev goes out of her way to make your space at the B&B feel like YOUR space - and her care regarding your comfort is evident from the cleanliness of the rooms to the artfully executed hand-cut flower arrangements. We feel that Seasons Above the Bay is a gem in our own backyard and are very happy to recommend it to anyone who's looking for an elegant place to relax in a charming area of this beautiful Island of ours!

Our stay at Seasons Above the Bay was very peaceful and relaxing. James and Bev have created a lovely and serene place to rejuvenate. Everything was new and spotless with artful decorations. You could feel yourself unwind the moment you stepped through the door. There were 4 of us (2 in one suite and 2 in the other), and it couldn't have worked out better. All 4 of us could hang out together in the "living room" in the front suite, but then have complete privacy in our separate suites. The major pluses were the beautiful garden and patio to relax in and sip a glass of wine. We used the BBQ several times to grill the fabulous local seafood and farm-fresh produce and loved the kitchenette. We chose Cowichan Bay for it's charm, easy accessibility from the ferry at Victoria and it's proximity to the local wine country. The wineries and wine-tasting was fantastic! It's also a designated "slow food" town. The sweet town along the bay is a short walk from the accommodation. What a treat to see great herons along the waterfront. We by chance happened to be there during the spot prawn festival. Very fun and the prawns were delicious. Thanks to Bev and James for being such gracious and helpful hosts and providing such soothing suites. I wholeheartedly recommend Seasons Above the Bay!

A wonderfully comfortable and well located getaway along the quaint Cowichan Bay...the accommodation was well appointed and cared for, the garden and patio were a great bonus to enjoy the good weather...the location was central to so much that the region offers, especially the local farms, vineyards, and water activities...Bev and James were gracious hosts, available, yet non-intrusive...highly recommend this retreat!

We were vacationing in Cowichan Bay with another couple and stayed at Seasons above the Bay. The accommodations were ideal for us and the owners went out of their way to take care of our every need, including fresh flowers in the rooms when we arrived, some snacks in the fridge and extremely comfortable beds! The outdoor patio and garden was absolutely beautiful, and we spent time there in the morning and especially in the evenings after returning from exploring this incredible part of Vancouver Island! It's an easy walk to town, where there is an amazing bakery, several great restaurants and a fantastic shop to rent kayaks and an incredible whale watching outfit.

I can't recommend this highly enough... it was one of the best vacations we could ever have imagined!
