This sweet seaside bed & breakfast is Dallas Road’s best kept secret


Nestled among the hustle and bustle of the scenic Dallas Road waterfront lies a stunning character house that is not only rich in history, but also boasts all of the creature comforts of a home away from home.

We’re talking about Dashwood Manor, of course—the seaside bed & breakfast where historic luxury meets coastal coziness.

Walking through the doors of Dashwood Manor is like stepping back in time, but with all of the modern amenities to make guests feel right at home.

Though the stained glass windows and exposed wooden beams ooze old world charm, dedicated perks such as a self-serve tea and coffee station plus in-room mini fridges and jacuzzi tubs ensure you’re well taken care of in every aspect.

In true bed & breakfast fashion, you’ll start your day with a chef’s fresh daily breakfast, featuring a rotating menu of delicious creations crafted with local ingredients. There is also daily fresh baked goods available for guests to sample throughout their stay.

As the cherry on top, enjoy free onsite parking during your stay!

Recognized as one of the Top 10 Best Bed & Breakfasts in BC as well as the Top 10 Most Romantic Inns, the cozy retreat offers 11 spacious rooms, each featuring breathtaking ocean or park views.

Rich in history, the manor at 1 Cook Street was originally built as a family home for Arthur and Eleanor Lineham in 1912. The Lineham lived in the home for many years, until it was eventually turned into apartments, likely in the 1940s.

The house was for sale at one point for $1500, and it was falling into a state of disrepair. In 1978, Derek Dashwood purchased 1 Cook Street for $125,000 and converted the building to bed and breakfast use in the late 1980s, which is how Dashwood Manor came to be.

Whether you’re looking for a staycation or a romantic getaway, Dashwood Manor Seaside Bed & Breakfast Inn is the perfect place to do so. Book your reservation online today and enjoy a breath of fresh island air for yourself!
