Cole's Bay Vacation Retreat

Charming Bed & Breakfast on Vancouver Island

Location

Our Location

We are located on Vancouver Island close to Sidney and 20 minutes from Victoria. Our inn is in a country setting, very quiet and convenient travel time to all amenities. Our guests have expressed appreciation for the peaceful beautiful area we live and how relaxed they feel during their stay.

 ~My Husband and I stayed on Vancouver Island at this lovely Bed and Breakfast in North Saanich for 3 nights to complete our month long holiday in Canada. It was so lovely to be welcomed and treated to a home cooked breakfast each morning. Such a comforting change to staying in hotels as we had been doing for the remainder of our holiday. We spent time each morning chatting and getting to know our hosts. The location was excellent as it was close to the Airport and BC Ferries and an easy drive to Sidney and Victoria. I highly recommend this B & B.~
