Tucked amid lush cedars and rhododendrons, you’ll find this charming, well-kept heritage home, with its comfortable rooms and welcoming hosts. The house was built in 1906 and is one of the very few to survive the building boom of the 1950s and [’]60s. Located as it is on the edge of the gay village, it’s not surprising that it’s especially popular among the LGBT set. And why not? It’s beautifully maintained and filled with antiques and historic photos of Vancouver taken by the original owners. Expect old Victrolas and damask armchairs, swagged draperies and bow windows. Each of the seven guest rooms has its own character, which could mean pretty upholstered headboards, toile comforters, or lace bed curtains, as well as wingback chairs, fireplaces, claw-foot tubs, or antique wood-framed love seats. Breakfast is a feast, and there’s sherry and iced tea to sip in the garden on a sunny afternoon.
