Bannockburn Farm today looks much as it did in 1855, when William and Margaret Thomson began building when remains today the oldest home on the Saanich Peninsula. As early as 1856, travelers across Mount Newton recorded the open hospitality and warm welcome that greeted them at Bannockburn, and today we offer three licensed (Central Saanich license #00017264) rooms for bed-and-breakfast guest accommodation. 

Guest rooms include a double bed, an in-room gas fireplace, and a WC. Guests may enjoy private time in the wood-fired Finnish sauna. There is a private outdoor cedar shower. Rooms include amenities for tea, coffee, and wine (an electric kettle, glassware, a small fridge) but do not include cooking facilities. Rooms are furnished in a clean, simple, farm-house style. Please note that we are a working farm and vineyard, so guests should expect to hear routine farm sounds, both overnight and in the mornings, from livestock and roosters. Complimentary ear plugs are provided should you wish to use them. Maximum room occupancy is two persons. 

Rooms booked directed through our website here are $150 a night plus taxes (13%). In order to keep prices reasonable in what we appreciate is a very expensive market, our room cost does not include breakfast. Hearty farm breakfasts are available with 24-hour notice for $20 per person additional. Morning tea and coffee are complimentary and self-service in your room. We do not provide daily housekeeping. To help you decide if our farm is a good fit for you, please know that we are not a full-service guest house. We offer clean, simple rooms at a fair and affordable rate on a beautiful rural property in a historic farm valley.

For guests looking for longer stays, we offer a weekly rate of $950 plus taxes (7 nights). Bookings for two weeks or more (14 days) are $75 per night ($525 per week) plus taxes, up to a maximum of 27 nights per booking. Due to the short-term vacation rental nature of our establishment, we cannot accept reservations for more than 27 nights. Please contact us if you'd like to discuss a series of 27 day bookings. We can occasionally accommodate this with a 72-hour gap between reservations. Weekly light housekeeping is included for stays of 7 days or longer. Rooms do not have cooking facilities, but longer-stay guests are welcome to keep light breakfast and luncheon convenience items in the in-room refrigerator and are provide with a workspace/cafe-dining area. We are a strictly no-smoking property, including cannabis. 

We are pet friendly, but please contact us to discuss suitability for your pet(s) before booking.

Pets may be left for a maximum period of five hours unattended in the room and must be crated at all times when guests are not on the property.
