As another year draws to a close, I like to reflect on the guests that stayed with us this year. We met wonderful folks from all parts of BC, and from most Canadian provinces; from all the way down the US west coast and from several eastern states and from Florida. Travelers arrived from the UK, from Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, New Zealand and Korea. It’s wonderful to share the Cowichan Valley and Vancouver Island with these visitors and help to make their visit as interesting and comfortable as possible. We had guests for weddings, reunions, birthday parties, the wineries or just to explore the Island or visit friends or family in the area.
It’s also a pleasure every year to see some of our “regular” guests. Some come for specific events in the area, such as the Brentwood College Regatta at the end of April, or the Shawnigan Regatta two weeks later, some come to visit their children who are attending any one of four private boarding schools in the area, and some come just to relax and rejuvenate, or because they love visiting the Island. It’s very rewarding to see them return to Cobble House, and to catch up on how things have been going in their lives.
Because some of our guests have taken the time to share their experience of staying at Cobble House on TripAdvisor, Cobble House B&B was given a certificate of excellence by TripAdvisor, based on a TripAdvisor rating of 5 as given to us by our guests. We thank all of you who have taken the time to write a review, and appreciate it so very much. We strive to offer the best Bed & Breakfast experience that we can, and after 17 years in business here in Cobble Hill we’re still learning new things every year to help make your stay with us the very best that it can be.
We hope to see you back with us, and would like to wish all of you a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah, a happy holiday season, and health and happiness in 2011!
