This is a wonderful retreat - we feel priviledged to have been able to stay in the Shoreline Cabin. Great paddling, views and wildlife encounters. Whales feeding and slapping tails. Passing dolphins. Eagles. Even a few re-emerging starfish. The cabin was very well appointed, with everything that we needed.

You need to see this place to believe it! Whether you're a paddler or not, it's a total gem. But if you are a paddler, Paddlers Inn is an unparalleled place to base your trip out of. It's deeper into the Broughton's than you are likely to get on your own, so you're a bit more isolated compared to leaving from Telegraph Cove. It's difficult to do justice with words to just how comfortable this place is. Comprised of a series of float-homes and terra firma homes, the accommodation is incredibly comfortable and clean - more so than many hotels I've stayed at. My wife and I, along with our 4 kids and a friend based a five day trip out of Paddlers Inn. We all stayed in the Floathouse Lodge and had plenty of room. The kitchen is remarkably complete (full fridge, range, oven). The main living/dining area has tons of room for a large group as well as for organizing your gear and food. And did I mention how clean it is?! Bruce picked us up and boated us in. We brought two of our own kayaks and rented a couple of doubles and a single from Paddlers Inn. The boat trips were amazing unto themselves! We spent two nights at Paddlers Inn and then headed out for 3 nights in the Broughtons. Bruce and Josee have a deep knowledge of the area, so they were able to give us invaluable tips on key things like campsite locations, water availability, etc. We returned on our final day, and Bruce took us back. We can't say enough about this place. If you want a unique get-away on the BC Coast with all the comforts of home (and I'm not exaggerating on this point), this is the place to go. We'll be pack for sure.

Thank you for your appreciation and wonderful review of our facility. It's such a pleasure when BC folks discover how beautiful and accessible their back-yard is. It's nice to see such a solid and capable family as yours, spending time together in nature, and we sure look forward to having you all visit again. All the best until then.

Lovely accommodation in the Shoreline Cabin, hot showers, perfect amenities for any cook to create gourmet meals on the gas stove or BBQ. We found after paddling on sunny days the local forest walks were a welcome treat on our last rainy afternoon. Bear prints, chanterelles and a fresh water lake!

My wife and I have been visiting Paddlers Inn for several years now and always enjoy our stay. Josee and Bruce are conscientious hosts and stewards of their little pocket of paradise. As we prescribe to the minimal impact of back country use we feel very comfortable giving them our business. The rental equipment is well kept and the cabins clean and nicely appointed. Josee's amazing flower baskets allowed us to enjoy the birds (humming!) and bees up close. The other wildlife viewing is also amazing, marine mammals aplenty! Patrick and Bev

We just returned from a relaxing and fun filled trip to Paddler’s Inn with our friends. There were 6 of us and we found our accommodations to be lovely, great views from the shoreline cabin. We had all the conveniences of home, yet we were off grid. The covered common area was a great place to gather and still remain physically distanced. We will be back. Thanks so much to Bruce and Josée for being such great hosts.
