I'm almost hesitant to write this review, as I would love this place to stay my secret--but WOW!! what a great stay!! We stayed in cabin 5 for two nights after a few nights of kayaking/camping, and it was the perfect end to our time up north island. I wish I'd known about this place on previous trips up there! Cabin 5 is their newest cabin, and is absolutely WONDERFUL. Clean, great design, gas fireplace, kitchen with everything you need (except scissors!), BBQ, a SUPER comfy bed and great shower. The front porch has a little table, chair and two adirondack style chairs, and you can gaze out across the immaculate lawn and out onto a river view of the strait. STUNNING. We could have stayed for weeks. Only issue we had was the when cooking any meat in a frying pan on the stove, there is naturally no ventilation and we set the smoke alarm off pretty reliably (and I promise we are not terrible cooks! lol). If youre not frying/cooking meat on the stove itself, you should have no problem--maybe stick to the BBQ. Otherwise, was a dream of a stay and we are already planning our return. Also, I cant leave a review without mentioning Lisa, would is FAB. SO so helpful, kind, and could not do enough to make our stay wonderful. Thank you!!…
We had a great stay at Cedar Park Resort in one of the cottages. Lisa was so accommodating, and is exceptionally meticulous with her cleanliness and linens and towels and labeling. I wouldn't normally take a bath somewhere that isn't my own house, but both my mom and I took baths because everything was spotless! The cottage was great, and had lots of useful amenities (coffee, coffee maker, pots, pans, stove, fridge, microwave, hair dryer, shampoo, body wash, conditioner, etc) as well as TV. It was also a great layout, and had a huge eat-in kitchen with a table and chairs. We were extremely comfortable here, and it was a wonderful base camp for doing whale tours with MacKay Whale Watching.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom Cottage, it was very clean and well equipped although no hanging space for clothes. The reception was friendly and supplies were replenished daily. The coffee machine and supplies were much appreciated. The resort is quiet and well maintained. The WiFi was rather frustrating as it often disappeared. We took trips to Telegraph Cove - the interpretive Whale centre is great, and a whale watching trip with Seasmoke from nearby Alder bay and that was amazing. All in all a lovely stay and we would recommend Cedar Park resort
Great little cottages to stay in whilst in Port McNeill. These are a couple of km out of town so you’ll ideally need to be driving. Kitchens are well kitted out with everything we needed and Lisa was lovely. Our bed was really comfortable and we slept well. The only thing which would have been great (given were touring around) would have been laundry on site. We eventually did it in town (down near the jetty) and it was faster than expected though.
We live further south on the Island and wanted to show visiting family a bit more of our Island. Cedar Park Resort exceeded our expectations. Very clean and nicely furnished cabins (we got two, adjacent units, with a bbq on an adjoining deck). Great views, quiet, and lots of room for the children, as well.
