We stayed at Phil’s for a wedding in Fort Langley. The suite was comfortable and had everything we needed. Take the time to walk on the incredible nature trail surrounding the property.
Thanks, Denyse! Great that you enjoyed our Country Timbers Suite. Our nature trail on our 10-acre property is one of our hidden treasures that only our guests get to see. Happy that you got to experience it. Thanks again!
Great location and size for me and my family. Very convenient to all of the farms, Fort Langley.
Thanks Renee! Very happy that you enjoyed our Country Timbers Suite and got to enjoy our local sights. You were a treat to host and we hope to see you again next horse jumping season at nearby Thunderbird Show Park!
We were in Vancouver area for 4 nights in July 2018, and, stayed at this property. Though it's in Langley, it's just 30 min drive to Vancouver Downtown. The location was very good for us, as it was near to USA Border (we could cross border in very little time back to USA, compared to long waits that we heard in other busy border crossing locations from Downtown area), and, to Abbotsford, where we did Skydiving.
Host was very helpful in sorting things out, and being available for all our needs.
Wow! Thanks for the terrific review of your experience at our Country Timbers Suite! We’re thrilled that you enjoyed your stay, and that you got to do the tandem skydive at Skydive Vancouver in Abbotsford. Your wonderful family was a pleasure to host!
Very sweet place to stay
Very quiet and comforting house, we enjoyed our stay, close to the berry and honey farm and we loved the location. We will choose Phil’s property again when we need a place to stay
We so appreciate your 5-star review, Robert! Your family was a delight to host at our Country Timbers Suite. It’s wonderful that you enjoyed Krause Berry Farm next door, as well as our local sights!
Fantastic location! Wonderful owner!
We visited Langley for a horse show and loved staying at Country Timbers Suite. The suite was perfect for our stay...clean, well stocked and the location was perfect. Phil was super easy to work with. We will definitely try to stay here again in the future.
Thanks so much, Jill! Your group was a treat to host for your 8-night stay at our Country Timbers Suite. Thrilled that you enjoyed our unit and its proximity to Thunderbird Show Park!
