For the first time since 2004 we are officially closed for the winter.
Our apologies if you are looking for accommodation.
We have house sitters living at Amberwood to look after the property
while we are away but they won't be running the B&B.
If you'd like to contact us for bookings in 2020 (starting in April)
please forward an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we WILL get
back to you. Thank you!

If you are looking for a self-contained vacation home near Ladysmith or Nanaimo BC on Vancouver Island, come and experience the River House, the most magical place on the Nanaimo River! Where your privacy is our priority!
Whether you're honeymooners looking for a romantic getaway or a business traveller looking for a restful sleep, this is the place.
Our accommodations are perfect for 1 or 2 adults, or, a family with 2 teenagers who are travelling by car and want to stay on a rural acreage with the best swimming around. It's also a great spot if you're travelling with your pooch, and Fido will have his own private yard, well away from any busy roads! Our accommodations are spotlessly clean, comfortable, well appointed, tastefully decorated, private and reasonably priced. The River House was architecturally designed to be a private, self-contained vacation home.....
Amberwood is located on 3.2 acres in the countryside just south of Nanaimo. We are five minutes from the Nanaimo Airport and 10 minutes from the Duke Point Ferry, downtown Nanaimo and Ladysmith. We are also ten to 15 minutes from several golf courses.
Walk the spacious property, throw a ball for Fido on your own lawn overlooking the trout pond (they're fun to feed and Ron might let you cast a line!), take a short stroll to our own private spot on the Nanaimo River trout pond, or - just relax and soak in the sun on your private deck!

"Wow! What a wonderful spot! One of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. By far the most beautiful swimming river! A 5 star experience with a wonderful personal touch."

"This has certainly been my best B&B experience so far! I was truly blessed to have picked a retreat so perfectly suited to writing, hanging out and getting to know the area. Thank you both for your warm welcome. The homemade granola in the fridge (complete with recipe), the exquisite surroundings (indoors and out), the attention to detail.... I leave with a tangible vision of the personal space I need to create for myself. Thank you so much."
