Historical Traveler Reviews Pepper Muffin Country Inn Nanaimo
Best place to date
We stayed for 4 nights. Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, both the place and the service. Beautiful quiet spot.
Would like to stay again
We booked our stay by directly calling Pepper Muffin. Our first experience in B&B in April still makes us smile. Thanks to Jolynn&Rich. We were expecting to have a few days with nature and country life. We found more than our expectations but unfortunately couldn`t stay more due to our following arrangements. I should mention the very clean and comfortable rooms, beautifully furnished guest house, nice garden, delicious breakfast, the hot tub in the middle of a green environment...
Not to mention Jolynn`s effort to answer all our questions by checking from brochures and internet. We would like to stay again in Nanaimo, Pepper Muffin Country Inn.
Gracious to me and mine
This four bedroom with a lounge and dining room was architechturally designed to purpose. Immaculate, and decorated and furnished with taste, this is an exemplary addition to the Bed and Breakfast milieu. The secluded, quiet, bucolic setting made an ideal get-away from our currently frazzled life at home. Our room was comfortable, and warmly inviting. Our Hosts, Jolynn and Rich, were very warm and accommodating, giving of their personal time and effort generously.(And is she ever a wonderful cook, and Rich makes a mean cup of coffee!) Breakfasts were varied, with emphasis on healthful fruits and entrees. Suggestions of activities, how-to-get-there-from here, and reservations at restaurants were graciously accomplished. We will return for more of the same, if we can snare a reservation.
Breakfast and beds both hard to leave
This is a return trip for me and my wife. The place is very well designed as a B&B with so many little extras. Our hosts were excellent in knowing when to gather around and ask us about our day, and knowing when to leave us to the gardens, the hot tub, the acreage to breath in the Island air! The bed was firm and comfortable and if we didn't have 'class' deadlines, we would still be there!
Breakfast was always varied and top class, served in a bright and colourful lounge area.
We will return.....Phil and Lynn Rutter, Vernon B.C.
Romantic and comfortable
We chose this lovely B & B on a whim and could not have been more happy with it. The hosts, Jolynn and Rich, were warm and welcomed us like family. They took the time to search the internet to help us obtain information on local outdoor activities and even went as far as doing a load of laundry for us when we came home soaking wet from a kayaking adventure. The accommodations were very clean, comfortable, and felt like home. Breakfasts were delicious - lots of fresh fruit. This is the perfect little romantic country inn. We will definately come back.
A Little Piece of Paradise
This was my first stay at a B & B, so I wasn't too sure what to expect. The Pepper Muffin Inn was such a tranquil, comfortable and clean place to stay, that I cannot wait to return with my husband. I feel it is truly a piece of paradise. Jolynn and Rich are warm and welcoming hosts, the rooms are all beautifully decorated and comfortable (I checked them all out), right down to the finest of bed linens to the softest robes and very inviting and calming rooms. The whole place is bright and beautifully decorated and clean. Outside is a hot tub which is soothing to ones tired body. The whole Inn and surrounding land are beautifully decorated and cared for with quaint little surprises here and there in the garden. The veranda was lovely to sit out on in the evening and have a cuppa. The beauty of this place is you feel so far into the country, yet it's easily accessible to the main road and into town in no time. Breakfast was outstanding! Bananna splits to eggs benedict, make you feel like royalty. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful B&B to anyone visiting Nanaimo, and I look forward to going there again.
An oasis of calm with real friendly folks!
Had to come out to Nanaimo on business. Due to fog my flight was cancelled, I got in at 1am, the hosts stayed up for me. Nice cheerful welcome! Had a beautiful yummy breakfast waiting in the morning ( I like to sleep in a bit so had a 9 am breakfast, usually in the chain hotels the complementary breakfast is of poor quality and finishes by 9am not at the pepper muffin. I stayed 3 nights and each morning was better than the last, all 3 breakfasts were tasty, plentiful, nice presentation and served with a smile. I found the website and the actual property was very accurate no "airbrushing" or dated photos-everything was just like the photos on the website. I didn't get time to go into the hot-tub but will save that for next time! My wife is expecting me to take her along, she too saw the website and wondered why I was "treating" myself without her-had to assure her that the room was for only one-ME! Enjoyed Rick & Jolynn's hospitality and found the stay excellent value for the money. They were also very open to any of my suggestions, not that any were needed. I highly recommend the pepper muffin and look forward to buying joelene's book on running a b&b! Enjoyed having the seperate entrance, could come and go as often as I liked.
The inn is located on beautiful scenic property, mountains in view from your window. Very close to downtown and a large shopping mall.
The owners are extremly friendly and hospitable.
They even picked me up and brought me to the Inn when I was unable to get there on my own.
The rooms are extremley clean, beautiful linens, they supply cozy robes and leave delicious chocolates on your night table.
I am not a big breakfeast eater, requesting something very light and she made a very delicious banana, granola and fresh fruit dish. If you are a big morning eater they will fix you up with whatever your likes are.
I would highly recomend staying here. It was a nice experience.
Great place, great hosts, can't rate it high enough.
We only booked the Pepper Muffin when our B & B in Tofino cancelled due to a water shortage and we were desperate for somewhere to stay. How lucky we were that Rick and Jolene could fit us in at such short notice. The property is outstanding, rooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable, it is peaceful and you immediately feel totally relaxed this is mainly due to the hosts and their relaxed attitude to things. Guests have their own dining room where delicious breakfasts are served at a time to suit the guests. Jolene's fruit omlettes and rhubarb muffins were so good my wife brought the recipes back to the UK . Although we didn't have time to use the hot tub it did look very inviting. Jolene is a mine of information and can't wait to recommend places to visit and restaurants to eat. We have no hesitation in fully recommending The Pepper Muffin and wish Rick and Jolene all the best for the future.
Great escape to reflect, relax & renew!
Rooms are comferting & comfertable - the bed's, you don't want to get out of!
Gourmet breakfast different everyday, the cooks & food are great.
The owners are very personable, and are looking to accomodate you in an way!
Can not wate to go back! Will do it again!

... reading and writing a paper—a first assignment due soon.
We took the puppies for a long walk before lunch and found ourselves at the hippie village. Tacos sounded good for lunch so we stopped by the Tacofino stand for burritos. We piddled around the camp after lunch and finally decided we may as well just start driving south instead of saving the long trip home in one day. The ...
... other boutique we went into was a second –hand clothing treasure box.
Staying at my friend’s place was like heaven for me. As I had only slept in bunk beds and mainly shared bathrooms for the last weeks, I was now more than thrilled to actually sleep in a normal bed and have a private bathroom as well. (Hint, hint, I am not the typical backpacker.) What a comfort!!! I felt blessed and was very grateful for ...
... chill out after a hectic day of packing.
My last day in Nanaimo included my last few goodbyes, including Mishko & Felix, Christina, my grandma, and of course the rest of my family. Everyone was upset that I was leaving, but not for the same reasons as when I left for London. This time my departure is definitely on a lighter note, as I'm going into a good job, in a town where I have friends looking out for me and a great school with tons of support for its ...
We got up this morning to an overcast sky and by the time we were ready to go the rain had started - so much for not travelling in the rain ha. Nevermind, I guess we should be used to it by now huh. At least it keeps everything pretty and green :) We checked out of Westbay Marine Village around 10am and hit the road to go and see the Kinsol Trestle (50km north). Basically it's a wooden railway trestle north of Shaw****n Lake that crosses the ...
... to hear the difference. Since we were already in the complex we stopped for lunch at Wildside Grill again and it was just as fantastic as last time. Ben had the salmon burger and I had the pork carnitas again - I did try to order something different but at the last minute changed my mind back coz these were sooo good! We drove into town to run a few errands and by the time we were done the fog was finally starting to lift and the sun was trying to come out. We had driven past the ...
