About the owner: I have been married for more than 30 years to my dear husband Nicholas Hunt. We have 2 wonderful children and 3 cats. Much of our life was spent in the book business in Vancouver; now we have a gallery of studio furniture and landscape art. We love to cook, eat, walk, read, garden and play bridge.
Why the Owner Chose Ganges: We chose our location because it is a very pretty property and lovely cottage; we are close to Ganges so we and the kids can walk there and our gallery is also within walking distance for boaters.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Visitors to the Gallery B&B will enjoy the art and studio furniture in the suite, the landscape art and sculpture on the property and the stunning and original work in the Duthie Gallery. As hosts we can recommend restaurants, studios and excursions, and provide maps of trails for hikes and rambles.
The suite is completely private, with a private entrance; guests will feel they're in their own place while staying with us at the Gallery B &B.
The kitchen is well equipped for gourmet cooking and when in season fresh greens and vegetables from the garden will also be available.
With our background in books, and being serious readers ourselves, there is always a good supply of current books and magazines available in the suite.
Visitors to our Gallery B&B suite will also enjoy its close proximity to Ganges village, Churchill beach and, for lavish dining, the Hastings House hotel, directly across the street.
