The Perfect April Getaway

April brings out the best in world-renowned Butchart Gardens. No other time of year brings as much colour and beauty to this Victorian landmark. Tulips, daffodils, cherry blossoms and many others bloom into full colour as Victoria leads the rest of the Canada into spring.

Malahat Magnificence

Perched at the Malahat’s summit, and majestically sequestered behind its white picketed fence, our red-roofed gothic-Victorian destination beckoned a welcome with a view that only soaring eagles usually enjoy. The property of this Vancouver Island B&B is picturesque to a fault.

Vancouver Island’s Prancing Horse Retreat: A Gothic Experience!

Imagine getting away from in all in your own private world! Prancing Horse Bed and Breakfast is a red-roofed Gothic Victorian villa filled with elegant antique furnishings. The view alone makes guests feel as though they are situated on top of the world. The Prancing Horse Retreat commands a sweeping view of Finlayson Arm, and in the distance, the snowcapped peaks of the Olympic Mountains.


“We wanted to offer our guests a romantic retreat with Ferrari standards,” commented Elaine and Alan Dillabaugh, when revealing how their nineteen-year-old B&B acquired its name. It is obvious the Dillabaughs, with their background in automotive, know a lot about Ferraris. And after our stay at The Prancing Horse, it was also obvious that they knew a lot about running a top-notch B&B.
Various restaurants are available in the area, but none as special as Aerie Luxury Resort’s dining room adjacent to the retreat. In the morning, breakfast varies from Belgium waffles with real maple syrup to French toast soufflé to quiche. Seasonal fruit, croissants or muffins and freshly squeezed orange juice and champagne are always provided.
The Prancing Horse Retreat is home to Victoria’s Ferrari Club. If you are a motor enthusiast or a small corporate group of ten or less, this is a special, ideal meeting place. The prancing Horse Retreat is located approximately 25 minutes north of Victoria. Follow the Trans Canada Highway and the turn off at the Spectacle Lake Provincial Park, exit and look for the Prancing Horse Retreat sign.
