    We stayed in the Orchard room. I swear we walked straight into the pages of Dwell magazine. Very serene with thoughtful touches–a loaf of fresh bread, jams, granola, milk and yogurt. The amazing breakfast pastry. The gallery is a delight with Anna’s and Paul’s work. We went with the idea of coming home with another of Paul’s sculptures and happily did just that.

    Thank you Anna & Paul for creating ‘Bloom’. there is something eye-catching at every turn from looking at watering cans & flowers through the “the Pond Room” windows, the Pond with your artistic touches / arrangements, the Studio, to the angled arbutus trees.

    You’ve made our first trip to Salt Spring Island a beautiful memory for us.

I was nice to have space both indoor and out to meet with our friends and then be able to go back to our simple, clean, crisp , elegant rooms. And the scones… glad you perfected them while we were here.

Surrounded by trees that must have inspired Emily Carr – back in the day. Wow the scones freshly baked! Granola, fruit, my tummy is very happy.

We admire the care that you took with the space, the food, and darling bottle of champagne. Your maps were enjoyed by the both of us. We only wish we could stay longer.

    We plan on coming back, in the summer again…

We are truly amazed at the thoughtful details and are both quite inspired. The surroundings are as beautiful as your artwork; we can see where you draw the inspiration from.

Everything was perfection, from the beautiful space, thoughtfully appointed kitchenette, tranquil surroundings, and most sumptuous danish we have ever had. Our kayak trip off the north tip of the island was amazing, we saw seals, cormorants, eagles, and even some sea otters… a first for us.

    I feel like I really got to know this island. Thank you so much for your help in locating “The Field of Salt Spring” I think anything that comes of this work it is in part yours.

    Bless each of you on your individual artistic journeys.

    It’s been ten years since I’ve slept this long and late in the morning –

    A testament to the space you’ve provided here!

    I found each time we set out to explore the island I had a strong pull to come “home” to our deliciously peaceful nest.

    We are so grateful Anna, Paul and Sophia, to share such a lovely summer week without the kids – and to share bits of lovely food, drink and learn snippets of each others lives.

    Our suite was more than a B&B, more a home from home with everything we could want and a very comfortable bed!

    We will certainly be highly recommending you both to anyone we know who, like ourselves, may be looking for a holiday in Beautiful British Columbia. We hope to return again in the future for another relaxing vacation.

    Oh and unlike some of your guests we didn’t meditate or talk to your fish, but we did sleep a lot…

    We did eat too much, starting with the granola followed by the entire apple cake, stuff from the garden, Sophia’s biscotti, chocolate…

    There are 2 separate suites on this property: pond and orchard. We stayed at pond which is on the second floor, above the owners’ art gallery, Blue Horse Folk Art Gallery.

    Bloom is a delightful accommodation with all the comforts of home. There’s a tranquil ambiance here that starts with the warm hospitality of the owners, Paul & Anna. The stylish suite overlooks perennial gardens and is decorated with the owners’ original art. The rooftop garden enhances the view. The yard and the owners’ country home provide a natural and serene backdrop. The suite is cozy and inviting. The vase of fresh tulips was a welcoming treat on a rainy and cold day. It is clear that Paul and anna have put a lot of thought into creating Bloom and they are dedicated to maintaining the property to high standards. We especially appreciated the spotless accommodation and the inviting bed with crisp, white linens.

From the beautifully done rooms (the mouldings, stained glass, linens and artwork combine to make this the envy of anyone featured in “Better Homes” or “Country Living”) to the lovely extra touches -fresh fruit tarts, dark coffee and your justly -famous morning cake – this is not merely a place to stay but an experience.

    I have been up for over an hour and still do not want to leave these beautiful creamy rooms.
    Every detail is lovely and appreciated, not to mention your book selection.
    My favourite so far…”The Museum of Bad Art” – laugh-out-loud hilarious.
    Maybe I will light these candles here and just stare out the window at the pond – but actually no – off to your gallery I go!
    Thank you so much for all of this – and your warmth too.

    The Best B&B we’ve ever stayed!! The room itself was like an art but very comfortable and relaxing as well. We’ve probably experienced the very “Salt Spring Island” moment here. Great hospitality and Anna’s cake is unforgettably tasty!! We definitely want to come back again.

    Thank you!!

    Thank you so much for creating this beautiful and relaxing retreat on Salt Spring Island… and thank you for sharing it with us! Should we ever be blessed with returning, we will stay here at Bloom again…”Why?”…because – your hospitality was warm and kind, your breakfast treats were scrumptious, your artwork and decorating is inspiring and the peaceful quietness is restoring.
    Thank you…and blessings to you and your family!

    From a first timer on Salt Spring to someone who has been here more times than she can count, Bloom was amazing for both of us. On our next trip to Salt Spring we will surely be visiting Bloom again. I can’t wait to see it in the summer time.

    The pastries and the granola were both absolutely exceptional.

    Hope to see you again.
