:) Thanks for this warmly welcoming home! It defintely felt like staying with friends ;) and I slept so good on the (pull-out) couch :D. Hope I will make it back one day and will recommend it to my friends and family for sure! 

Thank you so much,

P.S. Those rosemary lemon potatoes were awesome!

Wonderful family getaway and awesome hospitality. I hope we make it back again.

Wonderful, wonderful! A perfect "homey" place to come back to at the end of the day. Was really nice to meet you and chat over breakfast? Breakfast was huge!! And delicious! Lasted us the whole day of shopping.

A lovely home and a tremendous couple. Thank you James and Alison for sharing a slice of heaven with us. The suite was very comfortable and the breakfast was "five star". Thank you very much.

What a beautiful place, the accommodations were great. Your place was also very, very clean and the beds were great. Someday we will be back and we would definitely stay here. Would recommend to anyone coming this way. Thank you for the great breakfast and chat.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! You have lovely accommodations, but you both make the difference! We enjoyed staying at Dockside and surely hope to come again in the future. thank you for making us feel at home, for out of this world breakfast, and  for being so sweet and thoughtful. We thank you very much!

Thank-you for your hospitality. The suite was perfect for traveling with a toddler. Thank-you for setting up the crib and providing toys for our daughter; playing with them might just be the most fun she's had on this trip! Tranquil surroundings and an amazing breakfast were the icing on the cake!

Ode to Alison's Nanaimo Bars

So here we are in Nanaimo, named for a dessert I'm sure

A part of our trip, oh was a search for the pure

On our first night we found no need to search any more

The most magnificent sample the whole wide world 'round, Alison makes at Dockside shore!


Hard not to repeat what's been said before, but our week here at Dockside we did so adore

Conversations with James, and with Alison too, and a lovely big suite and a nice garden with a view

The splendiferous breakfasts and baking galore left us wishing that we could just linger here more

But it's time to move on, though it makes us feel blue, We'd just like to say THANK YOU from this Prince George crew

 This place is a gem! So glad we decided to stay here. You both were wonderful hosts and I will now have to step up my breakfast-making skills -- the new standard has been set! Can't wait to come back -- hopefully you won't be booked up! Thank you Alison & James

Thank you for your warm welcome! We would love to stay longer in this quiet paradise, two nights is too short for a wonderful place! Hope coming back soon :)

This is a beautiful place and your hospitality is incredible. We have traveled a lot but we have never seen a B&B like this!!

Having missed the earlier ferry we arrived rather late at about 10 pm; yet, we were greeted with big smiles, delicious homemade Nanaimo bars and juice. Our apartment style accommodation overlooked the lake and we saw a Kingfischer, Hummingbird, and Heron during our stay. The rooms were spacious, clean, and functional with enough decor to make you feel at home. Our 8-year old son immediately felt right at home! Breakfast was scrumptious each day! Each hot entry was accompanied by fresh fruit, home-baked goodies, freshly squeezed fruit juice, and tea/coffee. We have traveled close and far and slept in all styles of accommodations; this B&B is by far the best: we slept well, we were fed well and received lots of good tips about the local area.

Really beautiful location. Smashing breakfast and lovely hosts. We will tell everyone we know to visit here!!

 What a beautiful setting! I caught a glimpse of the sunrise when I got out of bed this morning. The lake looked just magical.

What a perfect place! Loved having our self-contained suite by the lake plus getting amazing breakfasts each morning - what more could anyone want.
