Profile Last Updated: August 26, 2008
A newly renovated heritage home, Camelot Inn is the City of Vancouver's "2002 Heritage Honor Award Winner." Here you can experience the historic ambience of 1912 Kitsilano. Natural wood trims, beautifully restored hard wood floors, rich colours, chandeliers, warm fireplaces and eye-catching stained glass give this inn a solid aura of authenticity. It's not surprising that the house has been featured in many local and national newspapers, used in film and television, and recognized in numerous respected travel magazines.
Huge period bathrooms accommodate showers and two-person soaker tubs, and the garden landscaping harmonises with the house. Hostess Inara Austrins anchored a home-and-garden TV show in her native Riga, and she has focused all of her knowledge here. She and her husband - they speak Russian and Latvian - restored the home themselves, preserving period character while installing modern security and fire protection. Breakfast offers the usual choices, while the hot home-baked main dish changes daily.
In the Neighbourhood
In a quiet and safe area, Camelot Inn is a five minute walk from the great shopping areas of Broadway and West Fourth avenue, with two of Vancouver's best restaurants among the many ethnic eateries. Downtown Vancouver and the beach are also close.
Rules of the House
There is presently no accommodation for children. No pets are allowed and smoking is permitted only on the porch. Cancellations are required seven days before arrival: one night charge payable if the room is not re-booked.
