Great B&B experience
We enjoyed our stay -- comfy bed with nice linens, very clean, elegant breakfast, and great location. Although it is not an isolated home (neighbors are close), once inside it feels very cozy and relaxing. Short walk to Capilano suspension bridge and short drive (5 mins) up to Grouse Mountain. We drove 10-15 mins into North Vancouver waterfront area for some nice dinners out. Enjoyed conversation with Brian, our host, at breakfast.

Brian emailed us beforehand wanting asking us our arrival time and if we had any dietary restrictions. When we arrived the house was warm and inviting. Our room was ready and everything was very clean and Brian was very welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing and we were delighted each morning with the quality of the food! Brian talked to us at length about fun things to do and great places to eat and really made our trip enjoyable. We would recommend ThistleDown house to everyone we know!
