A convenient base for touring the Cowichan Valley wineries, this casual and friendly B&B has three rooms in a contemporary farmhouse set amid lavender fields. Childhood friends Alison Philp and Marsha Stanley, along with Marsha's husband Dave, are welcoming hosts in this property, which also includes a small winery and a shop selling lavender products. The upstairs guest rooms, with polished wood floors, simple furnishings, and mini-fridges, overlook the meadows; the
spacious modern bathrooms are stocked with the farm's lavender soaps and lotions. A full breakfast, which might include lavender-infused muffins or other baked goods, fruit, and eggs, is served in the country kitchen.
