Private suites on the waterfront of a coastal lagoon wildlife preserve 20 minutes around the harbour from downtown Victoria will exceed your expectations. Experiences right here on our property will be the keepsakes you'll take home with you, and pull on you to return. Our ocean lagoon property is one-of-a-kind. You simply won't find this at any other B&B, let alone a hotel in Victoria.
Sit in our iconic yellow adriondiak dock chairs watching cruise ships dock downtown while around you playful otters feast on freshly caught dungenous crab as swans look on. Use one of our complimentary canoes, or kayaks to explore the wildlife in the lagoon. Paddle, walk, or bicycle next door to Hatley Castle - cast as Professor Xavier's school in X-Men 2 (2003) and X-Men The Last Stand (2006) - in the old growth forest on the north shore of the lagoon. While the Japanese Gardens at Butchart are beautiful you'll marvel at the Japanese Gardens next door at Hatley. Paddle, beachcomb, or use one of our complimentary bicycles to visit the 1850 Fort Rodd Hill and 1859 Fisgard Lighthouse - the oldest on our west coast - at the far end of the lagoon. Watch eagles, hawks and osprey pull huge salmon out of the lagoon from the luxury of your suite, or the relaxing massage of our waterfront hot tub.
Breakfast is a both a melody of tastes, and more experiences as guests sit in our kitchen around a large common breakfast table sharing travel stories. Like in a time not that long ago when the kitchen was the center of family life this too is the heart and soul of our bed and breakfast.
Birds of a Feather offers the hospitality of a small intimate B&B, and the privacy of a hotel with concierge service from locals who live here. Condo-like suites with private entrances were purpose-built for your quiet enjoyment. Enjoy spa and massage services in front of the fireplace in your suite.
Open the blackout blinds in your suite and the dock beckons you down to the water teaming with wildlife drinking and preening where the fresh water creek flows in to the ocean lagoon. Mount Baker towers in the distant background to the east. Oceanside locals are already beachcombing the driftwood splattered beaches. We live in a Postcard. Come for a visit and we'll share a the local experience with you.
"It's even better in person," proclaim so many of our guests. Allow us to exceed your expectations as you, Stay and Play™ or simply relax at our modern west coast destination. Sit on our dock, or in our canoe and watch wildlife - otters, seals, swans, great blue herons, bald eagles, osprey, kingfisher and a variety of seabirds - against the backdrop of the downtown Victoria skyline just around the other side of the harbour.
