Sailcone's Grizzly Bear Lodge is situated on Minstel Island, a 40 minute seaplane from Campbell River, Vancouver Island. A warning for those who don't enjoying flying in small planes - the ride can be bumpy. The lodge itself is set on a small bluff directly overlooking a very scenic strait. It is very clean & well maintained, & whilst it...

My wife and I visited at the beginning on June and we went with no real expectations because of the time of year but we couldn't have been more wrong. The lodge is in idyllic settings which can't really be done justice with written words. If you don't like sitting with a coffee in the fresh air first thing in...

We stayed at Sail Cone Lodge on Minstrel Island from September 25 – 27, 2014,and it was an amazing experience. Don’t confuse this lodge with the larger one on Knight’s Inlet. This lodge hosts smaller groups no more than 8, and is more intimate and personal. Angus is the owner and was our host and guide for our stay. He...
