Great place to relax and enjoy a spectacular view of the Bay. Cher is a fantastic host, making you feel like you are part of her family. You will enjoy a very well prepared breakfast while enjoying the view of the Bay. It is a very worthwhile experience. Can"t wait to visit again. Lonnie Sask. Canada

Cher is a wonderful host. She accommodated all my needs, including a rather restricted diet (iron, calls from friends, directions to town...). The view, food, relaxed atmosphere and ammenities were all excellent.

We stayed for 4 nights in Cher Thompson's Stephenson Point Seaside B&B while attending our niece's wedding. The view over Nanaimo harbour was spectacular. We had an extremely large room and even a balcony overlooking the water and surrounding mountains. The view was matched by Cher's attention to detail and service, and our room and the public rooms were immaculately... More
