Seven Hills B&B on Bowen Island

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Miller Road, Bowen Island, BC V0N 1G1, Canada

The Space

Hosts Anne and Horst Mann have greeted visitors to Bowen Island since 1992. Many of our guests come from Vancouver, to “get away”, slow down their pace and “smell the roses”; walk the trails, see the sights and visit the beaches.
One April, a number of our guests were students who just finished their exams. It was great to share their joy (and exhaustion) in having completed their exams. One snowy February weekend, a lone visitor arrived on his bicycle, his bag filled with books, seeking solitude. We have been hosts to sailors on a Sunday outing, arriving barefoot and cold, in need of a warm bed.

For those who need to stay connected we offer wireless access.

Bowen Island is a favourite place for Vancouver residents for a change of pace and we have regular guests from Germany, some from as far away as Australia and New Zealand, and visitors from Japan and South America. We hear many comments about our comfortable beds and the delicious breakfasts.

We are about 15 minutes walking distance from Snug Cove and the ferry terminal and close to Crippen Park trails and Deep Bay beaches. The Bowen community shuttle bus (part of the Trans-Link transit system) stops at our driveway - just ask the driver to be let off at “the bottom of Seven Hills”.
Don’t be fooled by deer looking like statues. They are real, and there are plenty of them.

  • Seven Hills was a dream. We stayed with Annemarie and her husband Horst for two nights over the long BC Family Day Weekend. Annemarie made the most outstanding breakfasts, with so many options to choose from. Annemarie gave us directions on where to go, how to get there, and where to hike. The room was very self sufficient, with kitchenette, washroom, bed and a big table for meals, work, and leisure. It was the perfect getaway for us, and we can't wait to go back again!

  • We could not ask for a better place to stay. The accommodation was clean, organized and perfect in every single possible way. The room had everything that we needed.
    The breakfast was the best one that we had in ages and Anne and Horst were so friendly and so lovely all the time that it felt that we were visiting old friends.
    If you plan to visit Bowen Island, this is the place to stay. We hope we can come back soon.

  • We stayed there over New Years 2013/14. Anne and Horst were great hosts and made us feel instantly comfortable in their home. The location was great with parking out the front and only 15min walk into town.The place is a room on the ground floor and great for a short stay for two people. It was clean, had a comfy bed and the shower was nice and hot. We got treated to a great breakfast with Anne crepes being especially good! The only thing that comes to mind is that you can hear people walking around upstairs and talking sometimes but that's to be expected when you're staying in someones home. Thanks for the great stay!

  • We had a wonderful stay with Anne and Horst. Our room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Anne and Horst were lovely hosts and made us feel at home from the time we arrived. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful and worth the price of our stay alone! We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a laid back, affordable and comfortable stay.

  • We found Seven Hills B&B to be located in the perfect area of Bowen for walking distance to the beach, parks, restaurants and shops. The b&b is very cosy and clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Anne-Marie, and her husband are a lovely host couple who made us feel right at home. We enjoyed a very delicious and divers breakfast and great conversation, learning about Bowen Island and all it has to offer. We had a magical and memorable time, we will certainly be back and look forward to visiting them again in the near future. This is truly a wonderful spot to stay whille visiting Bowen!

We shared some interesting conversation over the delicious breakfast she made us. She was always available if we had questions and even walked us to a lovely beach trail. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying on Bowen Island!

  • We had a great time at Seven Hills B&B, the highlight of which was the hospitality and friendliness of Anna and Horst. The suite was clean and functional, breakfast was delicious and the location was a great base for our weekend on Bowen Island. We hope to return for another visit.

  • We had a wonderful experience here - the Manns are perfect hosts and the house is just adorable. The breakfasts were superb, and the B and B is located very conveniently to the beach and shops in Snug Cove. I am familiar with Bowen having visited annually as a child and here all my wonderful memories came back - in the quiet woods, the rocky shore, and the gentle pace of island life. We will definitely visit again!

  • My stay at Annemarie's was lovely. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable and exactly as described. Annemarie and her husband were lovely hosts and provided lots of great information on the area and tips on what to explore. And the breakfasts were amazing!! Great communication before and during my stay. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Bowen Island.

About
Happily retired from over a quarter century as secretary of the local community school, I enjoy meeting people and showing visitors shortcuts through our trail network and special places on Bowen Island. I love to swim in the ocean (we are a five minute walk from Pebbly Beach) and walk for pleasure. Lately I have started bicycling again, mostly around the flat parts in Crippen Park or taking my bike to Vancouver, exploring the many bike routes. I am still learning about gardening and what works in our climate. Every plant that survives and even thrives despite pests and predators is a success! In the winter, I get back to knitting socks, trying new recipes and enjoy a slower pace of life.
