Join us in congratulating Ladysmith!!!

Ladysmith, November 8, 2017 – Ladysmith’s beautiful and historic First Avenue has been selected by the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) as Canada’s 2017 Great Street. The award was decided by a jury of certified planning professionals during the Great Places in Canada contest. CIP’s review of 17 submissions from across Canada was based on a set of criteria of planning best practices that considered social, economic, and accessibility and safety factors, and elements such as design, culture, history, and landscape.

Make it one of your favorite stops while traveling the island!

You’ll wish you stayed longer!


A fantastic place to stay and such a positive experience

“Mandy and Dwaine the new owners greeted us with a very warm and welcome that made us feel right at home. Mandy has a great eye for interior design and every room was beautifully appointed, You wake up every morning to a delicious selection for breakfast that is especially cooked for you at the time you have requested. The gardens are beautiful with plenty of areas to sit and relax in the very quiet location of the B&B.

“They have such warm and engaging personalities as well as a great sense of humour. They also have two wonderful small dogs for you to enjoy. It is a fantastic place to stay and such a positive experience. We stayed in the King room for two nights, it has a water view as well as beautiful decor. We highly recommend Hawley Place B&B. There many attractions and eating places near by and Ladysmith is a lovely town over looking the Harbour.”
