Guest Rooms :: Joey’s Retreat | Ivy’s Room | Florence’s Room | Molly’s Room

Inspired by the brief glimpse provided by the Vancouver Archives of the people who have lived, loved, laughed and cooked in this house, the second floor guest rooms in the Bee & Thistle are all named for women who lived in the home in the early 1900s.  Joey’s Retreat garden level suite is named for a little boy who had a secret hiding place under the main stairwell, where we found many of his “treasures” from the 1950s. The top floor suite is called the Lions’ Loft, so named because of its’ lovely view of the famous twin rock formations in Vancouver’s north shore mountains, which many people believe look like a pair of majestic lions keeping watch over the city.
