we spent two nights with Joan and Chris and we were treated like Kings. They welcomed us with a glass of wine, they sat down with us and told us where to go, where to eat and what to do during our stay in the area. Our daughter N was happy to goon walks with Chris and Lulu around the...

We have stayed at many B&Bs over the years, and this is one of my absolute favourites, and here's why. The natural setting is gorgeous. The main living room has large windows that look over the pond. One can sit and look at the heron across the pond, watch eagles soaring by, or just enjoy the beautiful trees. There are...

We stayed the night on the way to visit my daughter's friend at Shawnigan Lake School. Super friendly hosts and their dog, comfortable stay and delicious breakfast topped by snowfall and a frozen lake--a big treat for my California girl. Highly recommended.

We had the experience of staying at Ambraden Pond this past summer. We had an incredible experience from the warm welcome upon our arrival, to the most beautiful breakfasts we have ever had at a B&B. Joan and Chris are incredible hosts and we cannot wait until we get to return for another visit to the island!

Tucked downhill on a quiet country lane, in a wonderful Cowichan Valley location. My husband and I had a delightful stay last month at the very beautiful Ambraden Pond B&B. A beautiful home (note though that there are stairs to the rooms upstairs) with very gracious hosts. We enjoyed the best B&B breakfast that we’ve ever had, and the setting...

We have stayed at Ambraden Pond yearly for almost a decade. Chris and Joan are the consumate hosts. The setting is unique; a gorgeous house overlooking a private pond that is well-suited for swimming should you choose. The B&B is designed specifically to provide a separation between guests and hosts, if desired. The design is contemporary and subtle, providing a...

The lovely hosts Joan and Chris created a wonderful secluded oasis amidst nature but very close to the quaint towns and vineyards in the Cowichan valley. Their very own large pond invites for a swim in summer. The whole property -the gardens, the house and the rooms- are very tastefully set up. They make you feel like home right away...

We booked two nights in Ambraden Pond while visiting family in the area. The B&B is stunning both in the setting and the decor. The rooms are very comfortable; the beds and bedding are to die for, and our breakfasts were exceptional on both mornings. The guest sitting room is bright, comfortable and looks out over the pond. We could...

Finding a place on the Internet and it actually is amazing... Priceless. Joan and her husband are lovely and their home and land is so beautiful and calming. I almost didn't want to write a review so I can still get a reservation here when I need one!! They deserve to be booked up. We had a great stay. Joan...

“Based on our brief look at the rooms a couple of years earlier, we requested Room No. 1 because of the placement of the bed, the position of the en suite bathroom, the particular view, and the fact that this room shares only one wall with another guest room.”
