Let’s start with me answering my own question: why, yes it is!  We’re returning today to a wonderful B&B here on Vancouver Island we recently visited and featured called Season’s Above The Bay in the character-filled town of Cowichan Bay in the Cowichan Valley.  If you are just joining us, please feel free to see our first post on the B&B at “A Lovely Island Getaway“.

Perfect for a vacation stay or a quick weekend getaway, Bev and Jim Oliver really go that extra mile to make sure your stay is both special and memorable.  Our return visit this weekend was to photograph the suite called “Memories of Paris” where Bev and Jim have added a few new touches to make your experience that much better.  Everywhere you look in the room you find little details that really do whisk you away.  The colors and features are so inviting and the feeling is quite authentic.

What could be better than curling up with your favorite person and enjoying a lovely bottle of champagne and some of the finest fares the island has to offer?  The town of Cowichan Bay is just feet away from your doorstep here at Seasons Above The Bay, making for the perfect destination if you are looking for something specific and special, or you just want to do some window shopping in one of the greatest little places in the world.  It’s so easy to whittle away a day perusing the various shops and restaurants in the town.

In every corner of the suite we find little touches that bring the vibrancy and character of a stay in Paris to you.  If you close your eyes and open your mind you can almost hear the constant chatter of the Paris street vendors all clamoring for your attention to their offerings.

If you are looking for something a little more intimate and personal, look no further than from within the suite.  Everything is here for a quiet and private time if you are hoping for something away from the bustle of the crowds.  No matter what your goals are for your stay, it can all be found right here at Seasons Above The Bay!  Come and see the best the island has to offer!

    I vividly remember that earlier post, Toad. What a delight this place is on the inside – warm and welcoming and I love the decor in this room. If we ever find our way out there, this looks like a fine place to stay.

    We try to stay in B&B’s whenever we can Toad. They have such a warm and wonderful feel to them over the coldness of hotels. I think I know where I will be staying if I ever visit your great island.
