We must give credit to the new owners Jenna and Jeff for their attempt to comfort their guests. As hosts they are most gracious however the lodge did not live up to promotion. The site cabins are 1960s vintage with comfortable beds but amenities are severely lacking. Power only is available intermittently during the day and lighting in the cabins ill placed when available. Cutlery and pots and pans are random and inconsistent. Kindling and firewood is available but no axes should you require more to stoke the fire. Some of the shortcomings can be attributed to their recent purchase however customers expect functional accommodations when they arrive, perhaps they should have thought their possession date a little further before opening the facility. Access to the resort is very problematic when considering customers come from various points in the Province and may use Hwy 24 to access the resort. Signage is virtually non existent and forestry roads are not marked and in poor condition. This information needs to be disclosed to customers who plan on attending. If you want a ‘rustic’ experience this may be your place but make sure you have a 4x4 and chainsaw to get there. Good luck.

We have been to Thuya lakes resort many times and always enjoy our stay. Somethings change over the years while others remain the same. Over the years I have noticed that the fish I catch in the lakes where the resort has boats (and there are many lakes where they have boats) are getting larger. where previously a fish of 14 or 16 inches would be a trophy now this seems to happen quite regular and I have seen other fisherman/woman bringing back catches with fish well over 20 inches. But the charn if the resort is not just catching big fish. Depending on the lake you choose (ask Neil for advise) it might be better to go for a lake that holds lots of smaller fish as these are normally easier to catch and certainly for impatient kids that might be a better option. It is lovely to sit in front of your cabin and just read a book, enjoying the sunshine and relax while overlooking the lake. It doesn't have to be all about fishing, The cabin comes with an outdoor firepit and during our stay there was no fire ban so the firepit could be used for cooking or just sit around the fire at night. Nights can be cool (depending on the weather), but all cabins come with a wood stove and wood is provided to ensure you are comfortable. Cooking facilities are included (stove, oven, fridge, cutlery, crockery, etc. as we fly in from overseas this is great as it would not be practical to bring that all on the plane. An excellent alternative is to do the american plan where Neil or dawn will cook you a lovely meal and provide interesting conversation over diner. Overall the place comes highly recommended whether you want to fish for large trophy size wild rainbows, or just enjoy the peace and quietness of a remote (20 KM from Highway 24) location. Thuyalake did provide us with an excellent holiday and we look forward to returning next year. Rien

Question is.... When you search "Thuya Lakes Lodge" in Google the #2 position results in a 1 star review from 2015. Odd because the Resort has 21 more recent reviews and 4.5 rating?. Why could this site be so wrong? Meanwhile.... We stayed a week, time went too fast, weather could have been better, but the reason for coming was to have a great family fly fishing experience and that is what was provided. The owners are the most genuine, kind, informative and helpful people and will do their best to provide you with a great experience with compassion for the sport of fishing and remote living. Cabins are set up for the "do it yourself" type but you can opt for the American plan with meals and more provided. If there is something you need, they will try to accommodate if it is in their ability. Road in to the lodge is via a main "forest service access road", as any remote fishing lodge should be and saves you the expense of a helicopter ride. This location results in the reality of truly being "off the grid" and is all part of the charm. Our suggestions for a great stay is as follows. Drive appropriate vehicles, A Rav 4 is okay, but a 4x4 allows for expanding and exploring the many more remote lakes on secondary forest roads that " MAY" result in even better fishing, but are NOT absolutely required as many quality lakes are an easy drive on the main roads and short trails to provided boats, at over 20 lakes. RV 's or Motor boats are of no use, leave them at home or store them where you want to use them. For all guests ....Binoculars and cameras!!! lantern/headlights, stereo or BT speakers, Towels, bath and hygiene products (or not), blankets, your favourite pillow (optional), bug spray and after bite (not optional)(ha)....comfy outside chairs...they provide the standard plastic ones that work fine also For the cabin guests (Non American (food) plan customers) may benefit by bringing... ....Food!, snacks and extra SMORES, ....Cooler for beverages and other frequent use items so you can leave the fridge/freezer closed when the power is off, bags of cube ice is available ($4) and a main freezer is also able to store your items also. .....Propane BBQ, all your spices/condements, we also took a coffee press (optional), (perk type supplied), Saran wrap, tin foil, thermos, zip lock bags, paper towels, insulated cups, folding outdoor table, Your favourite heavy axe or hatchet (optional), fly/mosquito swatter (not optional) For your fishing experience, Bring all the basics as we fishers are so particular (or not) (they are be able to help if you forgot or need something more appropriate) , small cooler/pack, rain gear, hiking wear, patience and perseverance also provide excellent results. Don't forget your fishing license and lots of room in your cooler for the smoked and fresh trout. Thank you to the owners for the amazing time and experience hope to see you soon!

Spent a week at Thuya Lakes. The accommodations were comfortable and the cabin had everything we needed. Every cabin has a view of the lake and they are spaced far enough apart for privacy. Our host, Neil Beeman, really went the extra mile to ensure we had what we needed. With Neil’s assistance, we were able to fish 7 beautiful, remote lakes. Truly a wonderful experience and we will be back with our friends!

The accommodation is rustic but clean, the road in is not for your sports car. The fishing is good and your host Neil is the best you'll ever find.The Hillbilly cabin has hot water and it's own bathroom, very comfortable, the two bedroom cabin sleeps 4 -6, no hot water and no bathroom but a great view of the lake from the portch. The two local lakes are good fishing for smaller trout with lots of fight, a short hike or short drive and a hike can open up your fishing adventure
