Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

This idyllic cottage on a private road is a few steps away from a trail into the Grand Forest yet the ferry terminal is less than ten minutes away. It is surrounded by majestic cedars and next to a quietly babbling brook on protected wetlands. The main house is further down the driveway.

My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend at Karen’s and really enjoyed ourselves! The space was welcoming and clean. Karen was hospitable and friendly with terrific communication, all while giving us our space and privacy. The house is literally steps to the Grand Forest…

Me and my family had a great time at Karen's guest house. Karen was very nice and made you feel at home the moment you arrive. Lots of privacy and a great location. Close to town and great spots for hiking, perfect for an adventurous weekend getaway. Would absolutely stay again.

A secluded, peaceful, artful space — it felt like a big-city getaway, yet the main downtown is at most a ten minute drive (even after parking). It’s so obvious that the gorgeous grounds/property are well-loved and cared for, I felt lucky to stay there!

Karen was so lovely for our honeymoon. She went out of her way to bake us some vegan, gluten free treats and even got us a bottle of champagne to commemorate our wedding. She was so responsive and greeted us when we arrived and when we left. The place is beautifully secluded in…

A real hideaway in the woods but close to it all! Bainbride Island is pretty quiet and the stay is even more secluded but that is what we wanted. Only a ten minute drive to downtown. The house is very quiet and in the middle of a well manicured forest. Karen was waiting for us…

Interaction with guests
Guests have the option of complete privacy but I'm usually available and eager to help make their stay as pleasant and stress-free as possible. Private yoga classes may be scheduled ahead of time (I'm a Yoga Alliance-registered yoga instructor).
