Welcome to our beautiful and private South Garden Vacation Rental estate. The five suites (in the main facility) and lovely Cedars Cottage (suite #6) are classy, clean, well appointed and contain every thing needed for our guests to feel they are on a luxurious vacation. Warmth and coziness beckons our guests to totally relax, making South Garden their home away from home. If children are a part of the group, a tall fence surrounding the property will give the sense of safety and freedom. The huge lawn areas provide lots of room for games and R&R. After a time of activity, the outdoor Hot Tub calls our guests to enjoy a relaxing soak while viewing natural gardens, tantalizing the senses. Just minutes from the main facility, a 10 minute hike up will bring our guests to the Upper Deck for an awesome sight over the Harrison/Fraser River valleys. Once up top there are more hikes over Green Mountain, where some have enjoyed an incredible game of 'Capture the Flag', in and among the huge ever green forest.
A large kitchen area, dining area as well as a comfy meeting room round out this week away nicely, providing spaces to visit, catch up with one another, laugh, play and relax.
Just a short drive in many directions from South Garden B&B will take our guests to all kinds of activities, historic sites, beautiful nature, lakes, hiking, canoeing, boating...everything you can imagine. Pack a lunch or enjoy the services of the restaurants nearby.
Come enjoy South Garden Bed and Breakfast, open for week stays during designated times in the year. See you soon.

John and Jacquie have been married for 40, raised 6 children and now that our kids are flying on their own, we have room for more hospitality opportunities. 14 years ago we began our B&B and we loved it!! Now we no longer offer B&B options, but instead offer the entire facility and yard estate to our guests ie. we are now South Garden Vacation Rental. John is a teacher and so has the summer off (our busiest time) and I keep busy with the vacation rental, seeing our kids (all 11 of them) and grandkids, commuity involvement, church activities and just life.
Jacquie Zuidhof purchased this house in 2003
John received an invitation to be the Principal at the local Christian School in Agassiz. We looked for a place which we could develop into a B&B which would be close to Harrison Hot Springs, a marvelous tourist destination. We also needed a place which would welcome our children for home visits. Thus the B&B/vacation rental was perfect.
John and I love to garden. Having a business that requires our garden to be beautiful and well cared for is a delight for both of us. We also enjoy people and running our vacation rental gives occasion to welcome guests from all over the world. 'Tis a great added benefit.
We stayed for a girls weekend away. The property was perfect for our needs. A large kitchen, eating area and living room meant we could eat and socialize as a group. The 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms meant that everyone had their own space to escape to.
Just one warning, the hosts don't charge a cleaning fee if you wash the sheets and towels and leave the place clean. It's great to have the option (if you leave the sheets dirty, a cleaning fee is removed from your deposit) but we didn't know this ahead of time. We found out when we arrived. You'll also need to give yourself enough time the morning you leave to start all the loads before checkout.
We were greeted by Jacquie and John when we arrived. They're super friendly and did a nice tour around the house for us! The house has a cozy feel to it. Although it's secluded from the other houses in the area, it's still close and convenient to get to the village! A group of us stayed at the house for the weekend and there were more than enough beds for us! We also enjoyed the hot tub outside! Overall, great stay and will definitely be coming back in the future !
We had a fantastic stay at South Garden. John and Jacquie were super helpful and wonderful hosts.
The grounds worked very well for our kids - lots of room to play. And the accommodations were first rate. We especially loved the ensuite bathroom in each of the rooms. We will definitely be back!
We stayed at South Garden this past weekend to celebrate a late thanksgiving with our family. It was perfect! There was so much that South Garden had to offer! We loved having separate rooms/bathrooms for each individual family, and the common room allowed for a big family meal as well as lots of room for the kids to play. The kids were entertained for hours outside with games, biking, and the hot tub. We will definitely return! Thank you South Garden!
My family had a fantastic time here. We held our wedding with 12 guests... and it could not have been any better. The garden was an excellent venue for the ceremony and the dining room was the perfect size for our dinner. I recommend this spot for anyone planning to do the same!
We stayed at South Garden Vacation Rental for your Staff Retreat in September of 2016. It was ABSOLUTLY BEAUTIFUL. The house and cabin suited us perfectly. There was a large enough living room (for 9 people) and the kitchen table fit EVERYONE (as this was our biggest concern when we were looking for suites)!! The property is very well maintained and even though it is close to a main road, there are plenty of trees and shrubbery to act as a noise barrier. The bedrooms were very spacious and clean (3 single rooms and 3 with a bed and futon(cabin included)). Jacquie was very accommodating and quick in responding to emails and was more than willing to work with whatever we needed. South Garden Vacation Rental is a 10 on our list and we will definitely be considering staying here in the future!
