Very nice overnight stay at Froggy Fields. Great communication from the hosts with additional directions provided. Located conveniently off the highway but in a country setting with small quiet roads to cycle or walk. I had several 30min walks with my dog and saw very little traffic. Highly recommend.

Ruth and Gary are most gracious hosts and their park-like setting is a wonderfully peaceful place to stay. Ruth is an enthusiastic gardener and will likely happily show you what she has growing. Truly kind and wonderful people.

This was a wonderful stay! Ruth and Gary were very welcoming and friendly. They provided us a good amount of information to help us enjoy our stay. The parking was a shaded and level driveway. They were very close to Nanaimo, and had a few walking/biking trails near their house.
