Irene and her family have been operating their bed and breakfast since 1992. Born and raised in the Alberni Valley they are a wealth of local and island information. In the summer, Irene can be found most Saturday mornings in front of her fresh cut flower booth at Port Alberni’s own Farmers Market. They would be pleased to answer any questions you have or help you organize your island travels.
At Strathcona Street B & B we pride ourselves in supplying our guests with all the comforts of a large inn but without paying the high rates. Like the original B&B’s of old England, where a weary traveler could find a welcoming host to talk to, a calming place to bed down for the night and a nourishing breakfast in the morning to begin his next day’s journey, we pride ourselves in making your stay a good one.
Guests may also relax in the lounge area, help themselves to coffee or tea or use the fridge or microwave to prepare a light snack. All rooms are non-smoking. This lovely B and B also borders Maplehurst Park, one of Port Alberni’s newest hiking and nature parks.
Only a short distance from the Pacific Rim Highway and shopping centers our hideaway is nestled in 4 acres of gardens and surrounded by majestic cedars and Douglas firs. We offer 3 guest rooms, a pool, hot tub, sauna, wireless internet and many other extras such as laundry facilities, fire pit, barbeque, free pick up/ drop off at the Lady Rose, covered parking and safe off road parking as well as space for self-contained RV’s. Strathcona is Alberni Valley’s best kept B & B secret.
