Kiwi Cove is a hidden treasure. My wife and I have stayed there three times and have also brought friends -- each time we love it more. The setting is a beautiful acreage on Oyster Bay near Ladysmith. We chose the Salmon Room, which -- with its large private deck -- overlooks the kiwi orchard and the bay, with mountain views in the background. The dining room and the secluded hot tub also look out on the orchard.

You can spend a quiet, relaxing time strolling the grounds, picnicking, playing horseshoes, walking the shoreline, and watching the wide variety of birds. You are also only a short drive from opportunities for kayaking, swimming, hiking, fine dining, and a surprisingly large variety of arts and crafts studios and music events.

The breakfasts are delicious and the rooms modern and very comfortable. For us, a weekend at Kiwi Cove is a luxurious getaway at a moderate price.

Room Tip: Go for the upper-floor rooms overlooking the orchard

Upon our return to Europe, when thinking back on our wonderful vacation in Vancouver Island, the Kiwi Cove Lodge is the lodge we keep thinking of. After a long drive we were fortunate enough to see the sign for the lodge, and exited the highway. The lodge was easy to find, check-in was quick and easy. Once we had settled in the room we went for a walk on the property to stretch our legs. The lodge is located on a 10 acre plot of land right on the water, with a view of the beautiful snow covered mountains in the background. We saw hares, a great variarety of birds on land and bald eagles playing in the air. The serenity and this scenic part of Ladysmith completely caught us by surprise. In the evening we relaxed in the outdoor jacuzzi.
The room was great, it was large, nicely decorated, very clean and had a great view of the kiwis and the mountains in the background (no tv in the room).
Peggy served the best breakfast, which primarily consisted of homade things.
We had only planned to stay one night, but it was so nice that we extended our to two nights. I can sincerely recommend this lodge, and we will definitely return to the Kiwi Cove Lodge when we go back to Vancouver Island.

Our family booked 9 rooms with Kiwi Cove and were extremely happy the reception we received and our superb rooms. What a wonderful spot at the end of Ladysmith Harbour. Great views and balconies. They even setup a private dining room for our Mother's Day brunch and Birthday celebrations. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms at the back of the building for the best views and balconies. Very quiet.

The Kiwi Cove Lodge is located in a rural area close enough to Nanaimo to be convenient to get to but far enough away to leave the city behind. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, and ours had a private balcony with room to visit with the rest of our family staying elsewhere in the hotel. The breakfast was delicious and enjoyed by all. The grounds are quite lovely and our child was delighted by the rabbits and birds in the area. Recommended!

The room that I have is generously proportioned, has a private balcony, georgous view of a nearby inlet with mountains in the distance. It is comfortably appointed and furnished with books and magazines about birds, an unexpected plus for me.
The whole lodge is delightfully placed on the land, and comfortable with beautiful hardwood floors throughout. I am here for a four day conference with 22 other participants and as well as it works for this, I look forward to coming back with my wife for a vacation in the Pacific Northwest. The kitchen staff and chef have put together a great menu for this group that is delicious vegitarian cuisine.
