I just booked a room for the week end, actually two for the family. All I can say is that Lynn was super accommodating and helpful. Also very patient, I phoned her four times following up on details, sorry Lynn! Headed to the Theatre Saturday, nice rooms, nice people, can't wait. See you on the weekend. Long over due break...

Great breakfasts and comfy beds. Lynne and John are great hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. Lots of fun and you are made to feel right at home. Very close to the theatre the season is starting with Jane Austins Pride and Prejudice.

I had a wedding in Duncan to attend and found A Small World B&B when searching for a place to stay in Chemainus that would accommodate not only myself, but my 2 year old and mother. I have to say that it was a wonderful decision! John & Lynne were gracious hosts. Lynne made us wonderful breakfasts both mornings. McKenna,...

A wonderful place to stay in beautiful BC . John and Lynne are the perfect host and their cat Sam is even awesome. The food was delicious as the conversation. Would definitely come back. I had a very quiet room and John let me park my Studebaker in the driveway.

And we hope you'll come back. Your Studebaker parked in our driveway got lots of "good" attention. It's a beautiful car and we enjoyed having you stay.

My daughter and I stayed in the Milliner Room and my parents stayed in the Tea Room. Each had it's own bathroom and shared a common sitting room. It was perfect for a family traveling together. Lynne and John were such great hosts. We had to catch the ferry the next morning. They advised us to go get a place...

Wow, your kind words are music to our ears. You felt like family to us and we're glad that you chose our place to stay. I hope your daughter's stay at Capenwray was all she hoped it would be. We're so lucky to have one almost in our back yard. We look forward to seeing you again.

On March 16th I exchanged e-mails with Lynne confirming a reservation (along with credit card information) for both The Millner’s Room and The Tea Room for check in on August 26th.

Joyce, again I can only apologize that things didn’t turn out the way you planned. In our seventeen years of operating the B&B, you were the first guests to turn down what I considered an upgrade. I thought you would love them, but instead you hated me for not getting the rooms that you booked. We offered you two separate...

The room was comfortable and we had our own bathroom with everything you need. Separate entrance so did not disturb others when we came in late from a night at Sunfest in Duncan. Wonderful filling breakfast and great conversation with hostess Lynne and host John. We would stay here again!

We were lucky to have found this lovely B & B on our recent bike trip. We stayed 2 nights in the Milner room - which had everything we needed. Our room had a separate entrance from the Main house so we felt comfortable coming and going throughout the day. Our Hosts: John and Lynne are wonderful down to earth...

Gracious hosts with wit and charm greeted us and continued throughout our stay of 2 days, Breakfasts were very good and very family-like! We arrived by motorcycles (2 couples) and parked right outside of our suite (safe neighborhood!!), with two bedrooms each with their own baths, and a common room adjoining the two bedrooms for gaming/talking/knitting/TVing/watching movies etc. Excellent value!...

You better believe having four motorcycles parked in front of our house for two days got attention. We enjoyed your visit too and I learned how to make a bracelet.
