Stayed at the Lodge for a work trip and loved every minute of it. The location is breathtaking and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Really enjoyed the variety of buffet food and custom cocktails from the bar. Don't let the shared showers and bathrooms be a surprise!

This is a perfect location for a company retreat. The meeting rooms were flexible for different activities from sofas to boardroom style and all with a beautiful view of the bay. The weather was perfect so we were able to enjoy our breakfast and lunch out on the sundeck. The caterers did an excellent job with our meals. Everything was well prepared and ready for us. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Beds were very cozy. The shared bathrooms were not an issue at all. They were spotlessly clean and spacious. Staff were attentive and very easy to work with. We would go back.

This is a charming property located in beautiful, West Coast setting. Rooms are clean, and comfortable, with cozy beds and linens. The amenities provided are like those in dorm-style accommodations and these were clean and pleasant. The great hall gathering space is truly wonderful with a fireplace and comfy sofas.

Very clean. Not a hotel. Rooms do not have a bathroom but the bathroom is central. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent grounds with lots of parking. On the water with amazing views. The hall was just the roomy enough for our group and the staff served the food promptly. I highly recommend the lodge for your group event.

We stayed in the lovely Seaside Cottage. Fantastic view and location. Walking distance to shops and services and walking/hiking trails. Close to Vancouver but felt like a long way away. The patio in front of the cottage was fairly private and commanded a fabulous view of the cove. Birds in abundance. Cottage was comfortable and recently updated. Staff were friendly and eager to please. Boat dock could provide great stopping point to get off the water and stay in a real bed for a night or two. Super facility for weddings, retreats, family reunions.

We just went for a course retreat over the weekend and it was AMAZING. So close to the ferry and one of the little shopping areas as well as hiking trails, the lake, and the marina. I swear, within a couple hours of being there we were totally relaxed as it was just so peaceful. The owner takes very good care of the lodge (and I assume the smaller cabin though I didn't get to see it as someone else was in it). The food is catering and was excellent as were the choices of wines. He closes bar early which was good for our purposes, but know that if there, bar's done around 10pm. There is, however, an excellent little wine shoppe in the shopping area close by. It's NOT a hotel so there are shared bathrooms and the rooms have just beds, tables, and a TV. But that's all you need as you won't be spending much time there given how much else is around. There are games for playing outside, hikes to take, water to jump into (it's cold but fun), and boats to ride. I highly recommend checking this place out - all of us had a blast (two adults, a 12-year-old, and a 4-year-old).

Greeted by Manager Sam and his trusty canine partner Irish was a great start to our visit. With Irish around feel free to stroll in your bare feet and not worry about the presents left by the local geese! This lodge is not a typical hotel. My sons and I stayed in the standard rooms which were impecably clean. A huge hot tub, mountain bikes, kayaks from a private pier. Walking distance from the ferry. As well as walking distance from town center, pubs, grocery stores, liquor stores and restaurants. Only a 20 minute ferry ride from the Mainland Horseshoe Bay. A huge common room with a stone fire place as well as a fire place outside. Besutiful grounds right on the ocean. My next trip will be spent in the canvas tent perched over the cliff over looking the ocean. Roughing it at its best!!! Thanks to Sam and his staff!!! And Irish..
