DO stay here if you love nature, stunning views, and want a truly peaceful location... DO stay here if you want a warm, spotlessly clean and well appointed suite with a deck by the water’s edge where deer will wander and graze below you.... DO stay here if you can’t get enough of watching the ever changing light over the ocean and the mountains behind, whilst you enjoy your first beer after a long day of exploring... DO stay here if having a friendly and knowledgeable host will help you discover the area more fully.. DON’T stay here if you want a generic hotel/motel experience with TV and WiFi. All other amenities are up to date and efficiently working! Hidden Cove Lodge is a rare find. A lodge with cottages that were built specifically to be in harmony with the natural landscape, by owners who cherish their land and the creatures who frequent it. We loved staying there and would definitely stay again, hopefully in a post COVID world when we will be able to enjoy eating in the main lodge! 😊

A very warm and safe welcome from owner Sandra and other helpers. We were the first guests for this delayed season. A well-appointed self-catering cottage right on the water’s edge (can recommend cottage #1), with a deck and good views of two humpback whales passing close by one early morning. The gravel road in was not in too bad shape for our low slung car, but Sandra promises it will soon be even better if she can track down the grader driver. Having had to cancel our international travel this year, we were delighted to discover such a wonderful destination in our home province! Well worth the trip.

This hotel is located by itself on a small cove about 15-20 minutes from Telegraph Cove. It has great common areas, but our room was fairly small. But we spent very little time in our room, so this was not a problem for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the dinners and breakfasts were good. You can get picked up at their pier for wildlife tours. I would recommend this hotel over staying in Telegraph Cove if you are whale watching or grizzly bear viewing, but you would have to have a car to stay here. It is great to stay in a peaceful place where you can watch wildlife and the bay while eating a good dinner or breakfast.

Wonderful “hidden cove” near Telegraph Cove on Vancouver island. Our first room had an ocean view we saw a humpback whale our first night from our deck. Also, Mackay whale watching tour picked us up at the hidden cove pier and we saw 32 orcas. Also saw bears, blue herons, sea lions, harbour seals while staying here! We would highly recommend. You will need a car to stay here.

We stayed in a cottage for three nights. The cottage is well conditioned, with kitchenette and fridge, but there is no daily room cleaning: there was only one towel for person and they were not changed in three days. The lodge is located far away other houses, in a truly wilderness area. This may be an advantage when interested in animal observation (we were able to see some deer and a black bear very close our window), although there is no paths and the only walk we could do near the cottage was along the road. Actually, marked trails, shops and supermarket are 30 minutes driving away. The lodge also offers a restaurant for dining and breakfast. This could be a very useful option due to the distance to any shop. However, although the dinner was good, it was very expensive and there was only few personal to serve it -the last day we were there we had to wait for more than one hour in spite we arrive to the restaurant on time according the staff indications. Also, the breakfast was very scarce for its prize. So, as a whole it is an interesting place to stay just one night if you love wild animals and you take your own food.

We arrived at Hidden Cove and within half an hour were on a beach watching 5-6 Orca swimming around in the inlet in front of us. How do you beat that! The second day we watched a mother bear and cub on the beach opposite the lodge, foraging on the low tide leftovers. We saw the bigger bear again the following day. All the time there were Ravens, Eagles and other birds constantly flying by. We also saw Otter on the beach and a deer on the lawn. If you love nature you will love Hidden Cove.

Certainly "hidden", 2.5 kilometres down a rough road through a forest. We were concerned if that would be classed as going off-road by the car hire company! Pleasant place right on the cove with a pier to wander out on. We had a bear on the shoreline one evening. Not much else to explore without taking out the car each day so be prepared for 5 kilometres of rough road daily. Roomy place with two lounges. 60's music played which is great, at first. After I had heard Mr Bojangles five times I was not so keen. The breakfast was high sugar but the cakes were homemade and irresistible. Eggs, how you wanted them, each day with toast. For a bit of variety bacon, sausage, hash browns would have made a nice change. Excellent evening meal with four courses or fewer if you wanted. Licensed for alcohol.

While taking in the beauty and wonders of the Telegraph Cove area the Hidden Cove Lodge offers a lovely, serene setting with friendly owners who built it 30 years ago. There is a dock for pick up from Tide Rip Grizzley tours and breakfast and dinner available in the dining room. We loved the entry down a long gravel lane and then arriving at the cove and lodge.

We were struggling to find a nice hotel for a reasonable price in Telegraph Cove and then just accidentially found this cozy lodge.It's located in a beautiful area. We loved to sit in the communual living room in the evenings and mornings to look out for wildlife. Besides it's only a short drive from Telegraph Cove and some of the tour operators even pick you up at the lodge by boat directly, which was perfect for us. The two ladies who worked for the hotel were very helpful and nice. Only small minus from our point of view - the rooms were a bit oldfashioned, but very comfortable and clean. So all in all we had a great time and can highly recommend it.
