Here is a B&B site you may want to look at: http://wcbbia.com
It shows B&B accommodation in Western Canada. -Jean and I live in Vancouver
and would be delighted to be of assistance to you and your husband. Perhaps
you could choose a few of the B&B's listed in the above URL and let us
know. We can then tell you whether they are well located and we might be
able to have a look at them for you.
If you could tell us what you are interested in seeing in Vancouver and
what restaurants ( cuisine, price etc) appeal to you, we should be able to
make some suggestions.
There might be a get-together? I don't know how many members of the list
are in Vancouver but this will be seen by them and they could tell us.
