We spent a wonderful 5 days basing our visit to the Cowachin Valley here at Art & Elaine's. This B&B is run by the most delightful hosts, who went out of their way to produce delicious breakfasts that also accommodated our numerous food allergies. It's been years since we've been able to eat crepes or waffles or whipped cream, but Elaine managed to produce wonderful meals featuring those and more.

This B&B is also spacious, comfortable and clean. We would definitely make a return visit. Highly recommended.

Fabulous in every way! Elaine and Art are the most gracious hosts with a beautiful, welcoming home. Elaine's home cooked breakfast's are truly stunning and set you up fantastically for exploring beautiful Vancouver Island.

We spent three nights at this wonderful B&B - Everything was done to perfection - the breakfasts were spectacular and it was a treat to sit at the breakfast table with our hosts and all their beautiful china and talk about everything under the sun. The bedroom and ensuite were immaculate, and we were surprised to learn we had the entire second floor to ourselves - including a large sitting room and small patio. Elaine and Art were able to point us in the direction of some local sights and some great trails. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us! And also thanks for the delicious prawns!

Art & Elaine were very gracious hosts,stayed two nites. Breakfasts were fabulous. We had the whole up-stairs of the house to ourselves, very clean.Located on a dead-end street so was very quite. Would highly recommend this B & B.

Staying here was like staying at home. Elaine and Art were real friends and interested in my life. It was one of the best experience during my ongoing trip in Canada. They helped so much and they were so keen to do more than what expected. Gorgeous breakfast, every day different, gorgeous space with own living room and bathroom, spotless and taken care of. Thanks Elaine and Art for every single day spent in your company!

Thank you Art and Elaine for your wonderful hospitality! We loved your beautiful and spotless suite! Breakfast was absolutely phenomenal and so filling! We look forward to seeing you again on our next visit to the beautiful island!

- Brenda and Scott, from Red Deer, AB 15 July 2015

We have stayed here many times and love this place. It's new, clean, lots of space, the BEST breakfast and incredibly lovely people. We had such a great chat over breakfast the first time we stayed there we almost forgot we had to pay them and we were at a B&B and not a friends house!

- Faye and Paul, from Vancouver 5 February 2015

We had a lovely stay with Art & Elaine and would definitely recommend this beautiful Bed & Breakfast. The house was immaculate and the breakfasts were amazing. They are great hosts and made us feel very welcome and we hope to return one day. We are so pleased we found it - it was a lovely start to an altogether wonderful holiday.

What an absolute delight to come into Duncan and find such gracious and accomodating hosts as Art and Elaine. This reasonably priced, very clean, beautifully decorated suite was a real treat. Breakfasts were delicious, served on fine china complete with fresh flowers on the table. The beds were very comfortable. What a delight to stay with this couple who provided such a warm and friendly atmosphere. We'd highly recommend this home.

Dear Art and Elaine: Your wonderful hospitality and your very beautiful, spotless home, fabulous breakfasts, helpful suggestions combined to make our stay with you the best holiday we have had in years. We are still talking about it!! We will definitely be back. I told my husband that he had better not expect such wonderful breakfasts when we got home. Thanks so much Art and Elaine it was a pleasure meeting you both. Best Wishes, Donna and Don

Wonderful view of the sunrise from the balcony. Nice sized sitting area, and beautiful bedroom. The woodwork and colors are soothing. The breakfast and the hosts were amazing. Great quiet neighborhood. Tranquil Home away from home yet close enough to town if you needed anything. Would definitely come again. Thanks,
