The space

John Lewis House is a Bed & Breakfast with two bedrooms each with one queen bed accommodating a maximum of two people. Each room has a private bathroom. The price quoted is for one room.

The John Lewis House was built in 1900 by master cabinetmaker John Lewis, who came to Victoria from Wales in the late 1890s. Evidence of his craft can be seen throughout the house, especially in the ornate mantelpiece and decorative woodwork in the living room as well as in the wood-panelled vestibule.

The John Lewis House is located on Government Street in James Bay, the oldest residential neighbourhood in Victoria. James Bay contains many significant heritage homes that are designated under the city’s Residential Heritage Program.

Our house is less than a block from the Dallas Road waterfront, where you can walk towards Ogden Point in one direction, or east to Clover Point and further around the coast. The scenery is stunning, with the Olympic Mountain range in Washington State to the south across the Strait of Georgia.

Downtown Victoria is 15 minutes’ walk from the John Lewis House. Local We are ideally placed for visits to the Royal BC Museum, the Legislature, the Inner Harbour and many other attractions as well as shopping and restaurants.

Beacon Hill Park is a short walk away, where you can enjoy the many landscaped gardens, especially the rhododendron garden, as well as the trails, playground, playing fields and petting zoo. Pause for a while to watch games of tennis, cricket, lawn bowls, or even croquet.

What a great place to stay we never started our car and walked to everything.. Start you day with a great breakfast and friendly and humorous company. The room is very adequate and the bath as well. Warm and charming home close to the water like a block and walkable to town.

The place has a good vibe, is immaculate and the bed was really comfortable. The breakfasts were exquisite and they had great considerations for a food intolerance. Bob and Becky are definitely great hosts. They were very helpful with activities and restaurants suggestions.
