    Great place for our families

    Stayed here for our wedding weekend, including the botanical house, everybody LOVED it. This is THE bang for your buck in tuff city. We had total 32 people and everyone commented how cozy it was. Fully equipped kitchen for both locations = big plus. Very responsive as well to our emails considering we were from out of town.

    Glad you had a wonderful time Ann! Your family was a pleasure to host. I'm sure your Karaoke speaker was a hit too!

    This venue was amazing. We had access to the entire garden for choice in our ceremony and photos, as well as use of the café for our reception (55ppl or less) The staff were friendly and helpful, they do not handle the planning of the wedding, but that's ok because included in the cost is a wedding planner from RareEarth in Tofino. The combination is superb.
