We are back!
anneonbowen: Just in time before the end of the summer, we are back to welcome guests to Bowen Island. Blackberries are ripe, the ocean still beckons to go for a swim. It’s sunny and warm and days are still long. Come and walk the trails in Crippen Park or hike up Mount Gardner or just soak up the late summer sun at the beach. A doe and her fawn, that still has its white spots, are hanging...
Seven Hills B&B Closed April to September 2012
We will be closed from April 23 to September 3, 2012. It’s been 15 years since our last trip to Europe. This year, we are heading over there once again to visit family and friends, celebrating Horst’s big birthday and 40 years of our life in Canada.

Dear Anne & Horst, I talked to Ken today and told him what a great gift he had given his parents on their anniversary. Walt and I really enjoyed our evening with you, and Anne, your cake and dessert was so delicious. What a nice thing to do. Walt and I had...
Guest Message from 1993
Dear Anne & Horst, I couldn’t let “our” happening pass without writing to thank you so much for your kindness and assistance - for a pair of lost Americans. You certainly went out of your way to help us and made our visit to your island very pleasant. (your very BEAUTIFUL island). Our lodgings were very clean and comfortable and our breakfast was wonderful. We wish you good...
Darling Downs Mushrooms
In recreating guest messages from written records, I found the business card of Greg and Carol Holden of Queensland, Australia. They were side-tracked to Bowen Island on their way to Whistler after attending a “Mushroom Growers’ Convention” in Vancouver. We quite enjoyed their visit, talking about their country and about Canada.
