Guests at our Victoria bed and breakfast naturally are most often from Washington State (WA) or British Columbia (BC) for geographic reasons. Seattle and Vancouver account for many travelers here, being an easy drive away. And we are a very short, and pretty, drive from the magnificent Butchart Gardens.
Ferry crossings are about 90 minutes and the BC Ferries route is hourly at peak times so you just need to estimate driving time to the ferry and add about 20 minutes once on Vancouver Island to reach our Victoria bed and breakfast.
We recommend Seattle travelers drive north on I5 and enter Canada on that highway, which becomes #99 in British Columbia. After passing through immigration there it is an easy 45 minute drive to Tsawwassen for the lovely crossing through the Gulf Islands. This may not seem as obvious as crossing from Port Angeles but there ferries are infrequent and it is a slow road to reach it via a further ferry.
So, since it is neither lengthy or difficult to travel betweem Seattle and Victoria you can plan to relax perhaps for a romantic getaway or weekend break. Our Victoria bed and breakfast is ideal for these – in a quiet yet central location. Choose from a secluded garden cottage or elegant manor house rooms, all with high quality decor and amenities. Relax in our acre of glorious gardens, visit the 50 acres at the Butchart Gardens, have soothing massage treatments, savour fine dining, wander in parks, on beaches or downtown. There’s so much to do (or not to do!). We hope to welcome you on your next trip from Seattle, or wherever home may be, to beautiful Victoria BC.
