According to Our Guests

"My boyfriend and I came out to the coast for my birthday, to have a beach bonfire with my friends and decided to stay with Weegee and her husband. I don’t think we’ll ever stay anywhere else again. The suite was so charming, even more charming and high quality than the pics show, it was meticulously taken care of and you can tell a lot of thought went into making it cozy and adorable for guests. The king size bed was extremely comfortable, the view was gorgeous and the attention to detail in the suite was really apparent . . . " -- May 2015, Eric & Jervais via

"We had a wonderful stay at Weegee and Mike’s Sweet Start B&B on the May long weekend! The personal touches such as the breakfast basket and the essentials in the kitchen really made our stay memorable. The suite is lovely and tranquil with beautiful decor. It was the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration. Weegee and Mike were perfect hosts and even helped us with directions for our Soames Hill hike. We also appreciated the helpful communication before and during the trip with great suggestions of places to see and restaurants for dinner. Great location and we will highly recommend this place to our friends and family. Thank you so much!! — May 2015, Ellen via

“We stayed at Mike and Weegee’s cute suite on a weekend getaway and it was fantastic. They have thought of everything, all the little details in the signs and labels and the sweet touches of hospitality with the bread, homemade fruit compote, breakfast kit, activity and weather handout, it was very comfortable. Their place is a nice little walk into Lower Gibsons. The suite is clean, quiet and has all you need in the kitchen. Thanks Mike and Weegee! You guys have done a great job!” — March 2015, Leslie & Rob via

Finally, Jam Today!

It wasn’t until I stumbled on a recipe for refrigerator jam that used apple shreds for the pectin, a splash of lemon, a bit of sugar and berries that I realized how easy it would be to make “refrigerator jam today.”
