Loved it. Stunning location, super peaceful. We saw bald eagles and seals from their dock. Well built spacious cabins, very private and fully equipped.

Lucky enough to grab the Groupon to this fab resort. Rustic, beautiful, so nice! We got the 2 bedroom because it was only $20 more, we stayed in "4-b" (or "4-2"), which had a very nice view, and the bedrooms were separated by the living/dining/kitchen. Each bedroom also had it's own FULL bathroom, so it would be perfect even for...

Like early explorers who once named this area, we found this great place by chance. Unlike those first sailors, who surely found themselves struggling to escape the confines of the seemingly endless waterways, we could have stayed forever. Being late march, we found these cottages quiet, charming and cozy. The cedar cabins have a classic west coast charm and are...

Spent 2 nights here over Thanksgiving weekend. I was blown away by the resort. Our cabin was immaculate, fully stocked, and quite large. The best feature of this resort is its location and proximity to the ocean (Okeover Inlet). Cabin 5 had a huge wrap around deck. It was so peaceful sipping coffee in the morning and staring out at...

We arrived by boat and rented cabin #5 as two couples for four nights. We were doing day trips into Desolation Sound and this was the perfect base camp.
