BLOOM Organic Bed and Breakfast on Salt Spring Island

Our Review of BLOOM Organic Bed and Breakfast on Salt Spring Island

Owners Anna and Paul invited us to stay at their beautiful Bed and Breakfast for the weekend while we visited Salt Spring Island. BLOOM Organic Bed and Breakfast is located on their gorgeous property surrounded by trees, orchards, a pond and the famous Blue Horse Folk Art Gallery. Everything inside the Gallery is homemade by Anne and Paul including wooden sculptures, paintings using an element of beeswax in the paint and others combining historic imagery (like pages from old books) with modern design, and so much more.

The Pond Suite
The Orchard Suite

The B&B has 2 guest rooms- ‘Pond Suite’ is above the Blue Horse Art Gallery, and ‘Orchard Suite’ is located on the side of the property overlooking the orchards. We stayed in the Pond Suite, which overlooked the entire property. The country style room was filled with decor handmade by the owners really gives it a true Salt Spring feel and experience.


Wake up to birds chirping and enjoy a hand pressed organic coffee in bed. The room is also fully stocked with organic goodies in the standup kitchen including jams, bread, yogurt, milk, coffee, tea and olive oils and vinegars for you to enjoy anytime at your convenience.

Guests are allowed to stroll throughout the property- so take a bottle of local wine (we fell in love with Mistaken Identity Bianco) and go sit by the pond, or walk thru the orchards in the afternoon.

We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for any couple looking to escape for the weekend and wants to stay in a quaint and memorable B&B on Salt Spring. What we liked best is that the suites are very private and seperate. You will absolutely love your stay at BLOOM.


*Thank you to our hosts Anna and Paul for providing us with our stay at BLOOM Organic Bed and Breakfast.
