BC Innkeepers Guild members La Pause Bed and Breakfast and Belle Vue Bed and Breakfast, both located in the Comox Valley, are prominently featured in the October edition of Victoria Tourism Mall’s online magazine Vancouver Island Travel.  In an article about the Comox Valley, authors Ron and Linda Kirstein sampled accommodations, restaurants, explored various recreational opportunities and visited with business owners.  Ron took many fine photos which are posted on the magazine’s blog.  In conjunction with the story, La Pause is offering the following special for those who reference the article:  Stay 2 nights – Save 30 % on the second night – enjoy savings up to $45.  (effective October 1, 2010 to May 15, 2011 – Dec 15 to Jan 7 excluded).  Belle Vue is offering 3 night stays with 50% off the 3rd night or for those staying 4 nights, the 4th night free (valid until March 31, 2011).   For those who don’t already know, the Comox Valley is located about half way up the east coast of Vancouver Island.  It is an ideal base for Mt. Washington skiing and all manner of outdoor recreation.  The Comox Valley has gorgeous scenery, great golf (year round!), superb dining, and is centrally located for day trips to the rest of the Island, being about a 2 1/2 hours drive from Victoria to the south or Port Hardy to the north.

Better Business Bureau Honors Guild Member

Hearty congratulations to Two Eagles Lodge in Union Bay, near Courtenay, for earning the Vancouver Island Better Business Bureau’s 2010 Torch Award in the Hospitality category.  Carolyn Touhey owns and runs the Two Eagles Lodge B&B along with her husband Steve, who built much of the house.  The couple fell in love with Vancouver Island and made the move from the East Coast of the U.S. in 2006 to live their dream.  Their slogan is “where new friends and great memories are made in paradise.”   Carolyn and Steve were ecstatic when they learned about receiving the award, but colleagues say they exemplify the high integrity and business honesty that are the basis of the award.

Abbeymoore Manor

It’s no surprise when elegant Victoria BC accommodations generate interest and excitement, but when three out of four in one article are members of BC’s Best B&Bs, it warrants taking note.  An enthusiastic Jeremy Ferguson, writing  for Doctor’s Review, featured three Guild members – Abbeymoore Manor, Fairholme Manor, and Villa Marco Polo – in a flattering article available at www.doctorsreview.com/features/victorias-aristocratic-bbs/.

In a separate piece author Suzanne Morphet, for Westjet Airlines, captures the essence of Abbeymoore Manor in a beautifully crafted feature available at http://www.upmagazine.com/story/article/abbeymoore-manor  As she says in her article “…The reason people love this place is because Ian and Anne care to get to know you”.
