Luxury accommodation without the luxury hotel price.

Private entrance bedroom, with private adjoining three piece bathroom. Queen size bed with a lush foam topper for ultimate comfort. The room is nicely appointed and clean. Fridge, toaster oven, coffee/tea facilities in guest space, plus tv (basic cable). It's an attractive private country home on a fenced five acres. We have three dogs that love a cuddle but won't pester you. We are approximately 9km out of Duncan, a 10-15 minute drive

The space

We have a very private property that is welcoming and holds a certain charm. Views of Mt. Prevost, but otherwise very private yard. We are approximately 9km out of Duncan which will take you 10-15 minutes to get here - give yourself another few minutes if you are not familiar, have (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps or if it is dark. After all we are considered "rural".

Guest access

You have a private entrance and private three piece bathroom. Your room has a private deck area to sit out and enjoy your peace and quiet. A bistro table 'n chairs, plus zero gravity recliner if the weather permits, are available for your use. You will be able to access our washer/dryer for occasional laundry duty. Welcome to wander the five acre property and enjoy the lounging in the yard.

Interaction with guests

Minimal. We like to say hi and goodbye, but if you are in need of something in particular we are happy for you to seek us out. We are available to provide information on the local area and give you some guidance with points of interest or local eateries. We know many of the local attractions and if necessary we can print out directions to get you to where you are going.

Other things to note

We'll provide a continental style breakfast, self service. A clutch of items will be in the room for easy access (ie. fruit, yogurt, cheese/crackers, nuts and a sweetie). Small fridge, coffee machine, kettle, and toaster oven are available.

Rural paradise. A slice of quiet. The place was fantastic. I loved the private room and the three dogs just made me feel even more at home. Leigh was very quick to respond and the place was everything a weary business traveller like me appreciated! I will definitely return when I am in the area! Thanks for the great restful place.

It was really unfortunate that your travel plans didn't go as smoothly as you'd hoped. We'd be happy to host you again in the future. We've clocked the distance from our home into Duncan and it is approximately 9km. Should take between 10 - 15 minutes from the center of town.

Leigh's place was absolutely lovely. The room and bathroom itself was beautifully appointed and so comfortable, and the extra touches such as the fridge and basket of snacks, Keurig coffee and teas, and bathroom amenities just added to the overall experience. Leigh, her husband, and the dogs were friendly and lovely and gave some great suggestions for the area. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

This property is amazing. They have friendly and playful dogs. Lots of greenery all around and it is definitely one of the most beautiful retreats one could hope for in the Cowichan Valley. Leigh and Chris were great, would definitely recommend staying with them.

Very much enjoyed my stay. Spacious room, comfortable bed, fresh fruit as well a small other breakfast foods provided. Well outfitted, peaceful, near trails and Duncan. Leigh kindly let me wash some clothes and was a joy to meet. I am now over my fear of boxers as her dogs all very gentle. Recommended!
