Beck Lake Luxury Guest House is slightly off the beaten path, just outside of Nanaimo, but easy to find and totally worth the effort. IT IS GORGEOUS and the nightly rate is amazing.
The guest house and cottage sit in a lovely garden, filled with ponds, sculptures, benches and wildlife. The awesome view of the valley beyond is pastoral and serene.
The cottage itself is so tastefully appointed, it could be taken for a boutique hotel or pages from House and Home with its warm colours, dark wood, custom made furnitures, high quality cotton sheets & downy soft duvet.
The kitchen is completely modern and stocked with everything required for housekeeping. No second rate castoffs here. The washroom, with its waterfall sink and hydrotherapy bathtub is also fully stocked.
Games, videos, cd's. It's all there. The only drawback - Beck Lake cottage is difficult to leave.
