The Essex Inn on Osborne Bay - The Inn for All Seasons. Vancouver Island,
BC Canada.
Please note: we are NOT in Vancouver, but on Vancouver Island. Travel time to Vancouver, including BC Ferries is a 3 hour journey away.
We are situated in the Cowichan region of Vancouver Island with it's numerous attractions.

The space

ROOM 1 - Ensuite with bathtub/shower combination.
Our rooms are all ensuite and 7 have queen beds. Our garden room has twin beds that can be adjusted to a king bed. Perfect for groups, we have accommodated wedding parties, family reunions, seminar attendees and get-aways.

Guest access

Hiking and mountain biking trails are nearby on Maple Mountain and the BC Ferry to Saltspring Island and the Saturday market is 5 mins away. Kayaking is near at Maple Bay and also in Ladysmith. Great roads for motor cyclists also.

Interaction with guests

We hope you will find a comfortable home away from home here with us. We are here at all times to look after any discrepancy. Our aim is to accommodate you and your dietary needs while you explore this amazing part of the world. We encourage you to do as much or as little as you want. Just let us know if there is anything we can do to make your visit memorable. Spring in the Cowichan Valley is just beautiful. Pink blossoms abound and give way to lovely summer days. It is so nice to sit on the deck with a drink, and just listen to the birds. Autumn is a riot of reds and golds and it's own beauty. This last winter we had snow, so lovely to look at whilst sitting inside around our cosy fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.

Other things to note

We are fortunate to be midway between 2 outstanding live theatres, in Duncan and Chemainus. The Raptor Centre is 5 mins from here and the BC Forestry 'Ride the Rails' train just 15 mins. With these, two of many attractions, and winery and foodie tours, there is something for all ages to enjoy
