About Elaine Cowan
I emigrated to Canada 25 years ago, with my family from New Zealand. I am an avid gardener, and are enjoying developing an English Country style Garden. I have also developed a large cutting garden, and design arrangements, and bouquets for a local market, weddings, and other small events. I love living in this little piece of paradise!
Elaine Cowan purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2014
Why Elaine Cowan chose Nanoose Bay
Fell in love with the beautiful south facing property, its expansive view of the ocean and beyond, the privacy, and it's central location. It is a few short minutes to Hwy 19, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and close to many attractions in the surrounding area. A nice day trip to the West Coast, Mt Washington, and also Victoria.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Luxurious, and restful place to relax and enjoy, And the benefit of having walk on water ocean front property right outside front gate, fun to watch the ebb and flow of the tides across the shallow sands at the head of the bay, enjoy the water birds, as well as eagles in their perching tree, or nest nearby. The water is calm, which creates a restful place, and makes for easy paddling in a kayak, or canoe when exploring the bay, you are welcome to use B&B kayaks. I Built the home in 2011, and moved in early 2012, and have recently developed the Guest wing, into a B&B.

Little piece of Paradise!
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe this B&B at Nanoose Bay. The property and view of the inlet are stunning. Elaine is a most gracious hostess and fabulous cook. The fireplace was a bonus when we first arrived. And the well groomed grounds and little beach were fun to explore. Highly recommend this B&B! Pat and David
Thank you for your kind words Pat and David, I enjoyed meeting you both and I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay!
This was our 4th stay at Elaine’s beautifully appointed Country Manor.
We look forward to our annual stay. The water view , the property and surroundings are peaceful and the rooms very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoy the thoughtful breakfast. Thanks once more Elaine for a memorable stay.
Always a pleasure to see you both again, and to meet your son this visit! I hope the rest of your stay on the Island was enjoyable, and I look forward to seeing you again soon!
