Meet Lorette Smillie

Lorette Smillie is the owner of Smillie's Bed & Breakfast

Lorette Smillie is a professional interior designer by trade who has an affinity for island living. Previously from Duncan, B.C. on Vancouver Island, Lorette moved to Haida Gwaii over a decade ago for a change of pace and to pursue new adventures. Having owned a bed and breakfast before, Lorette looked for a house with B & B potential and located one through a friend that seemed to be perfect.

Being a B & B operator was a natural career choice for Lorette who loved to decorate but didn’t want to keep her designs to herself. Sharing them with others through entertaining and hosting seemed to be a perfect way to do this. Few things give her more satisfaction in her work than hearing her guests comment on how beautiful their rooms are and how much they love the Masset Inlet property that houses Smillie’s B & B. Many of her guests are regulars, and much of the B & B’s new business is generated through personal referrals and positive comments left by visitors on online travel sites like TripAdvisor.

Running a B & B keeps Lorette busy, but she does appreciate that working for herself means that she’s able to take time off when she wants to, such as for her annual trips back to visit family on Vancouver Island. She also keeps busy in her other job, as she is the drummer for “Outta the Blue,” a popular Haida Gwaii dance band.

Cozy. Warm. Relaxing.

Smillie’s Bed & Breakfast is situated on Masset Inlet in the center of Graham Island, a perfect location for visitors who want to take in every part of the island in both directions. Rooms are outfitted with queen bed, kitchenette, fireplace and deck. Your stay includes satellite TV, complimentary Internet and in-room coffee and tea. A hearty and delicious home cooked breakfast will be delivered to your door in the morning and you can choose to enjoy it in your room or outdoors on your gorgeous private deck while listening to the sound of gently lapping water and the call of seagulls and other water birds. Warm and contemporary d├ęcor and attentive hosts will complete your experience at Smillie’s Bed & Breakfast.
