We arrived just at check-in time to our cabin with its breath-taking view over Okeover Inlet. It was a bit of a hike down the pathway to the cabin with our gear but everything was ready for us and, after a short nap, the hot-tub beckoned. The supplied robes were a lovely touch. The kitchen is fully equipped but basic...

For my 40th birthday a group of close friends and I wanted to enjoy a weekend together and we booked with this resort. We were a group of eight and the only resort we could find in the Powell River area to accommodate us was Desolation Resort. The booking had been made for about 4-5 weeks when I just happened...

We loved this place. The forest and grounds are very beautiful, there are free kayaks and canoes readily available. We hiked, picked oysters and muscles from the beach, took in the breath taking views from our hot tub on the balcony. It was perfection... a must go!!

My wife and I stayed in May with our two Sons (aged 6 and 9). The views are stunning, exploring and walking is great. Loved the kayaking, over the other side, down river, etc. Take lunch and come back after exploring an even more remote area. On our list of best ever holidays.

My husband and I recently stayed in Chalet 1 for two nights after the Thanksgiving long weekend. I had been twice before, about 6-7 years ago. We were looking forward to getting away from it all, which this place provides. It is quiet, rustic, no cell service, TV, or WiFi to distract or tempt us. We loved that about this...

You were fully aware and our website has the bed configuration for this place, which is two double beds. If you wanted a king bed, there were other chalets available with the king bed configuration and a...
