This year, we are offering special services to our guests including the ability to dine at the heritage church next door. If you are with a group, contact us for details.
Creativity, community and connection are key to our programming at The Hive Centre. The 2017 schedule will be available at The Hive's Community Night on Friday, April 28th. Unable to join us in person? Tune in on Facebook through the 1COMMUNITY1 sponsored live feed.
A Different Kind of Bee & Bee
Did you know that the owners of The Hive, Kevin and Elsii, live at the church next door and that the Bee & Bee is used exclusively for guests?
Guests report feeling comfortable and at home at the bed and breakfast. Common areas include a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious living area. A self-serve continental breakfast, with local food items, is provided for guests.
For groups who are interested in renting both The Hive Centre and Bee & Bee, packages are available for rentals and retreats. Learn more.
