Even in this cosmopolitan Canadian city packed with high-rise condos, it’s sometimes nice to stay low to the ground. The bed and breakfasts in Vancouver exude charm, with excellent locations near beaches and parks, and many in lovely walkable neighborhoods. Best of all, you’ll have a knowledgeable host who will be thrilled to share their local tips and tricks. Here are the best.

Thankfully, heritage-home restorers Jim Britton and Mike Brown saved this grand Queen Anne mansion on the edge of downtown from demolition in 1995. There are six guestrooms (plus a cottage with garden access), each with a blend of antique and modern furniture; some have bay windows or skylights. Wake up to a three-course breakfast, and enjoy a sherry toast each evening, with snacks available from a guest pantry all day.
