We stayed in the lovely Seaside Cottage. Fantastic view and location. Walking distance to shops and services and walking/hiking trails.
Close to Vancouver but felt like a long way away.
The patio in front of the cottage was fairly private and commanded a fabulous view of the cove. Birds in abundance. Cottage was comfortable and recently updated.
Staff were friendly and eager to please.
Boat dock could provide great stopping point to get off the water and stay in a real bed for a night or two.
Super facility for weddings, retreats, family reunions.

Room tip: Cottage is stand alone from the rest of the facility, and provides the most privacy.

Take a ferry from Horseshoe bay - lovely lodges - great greenery and peace and quiet and some water sports. Plenty of things to do- long walks, water sports good family time. Good when with a few few friends

We just went for a course retreat over the weekend and it was AMAZING. So close to the ferry and one of the little shopping areas as well as hiking trails, the lake, and the marina. I swear, within a couple hours of being there we were totally relaxed as it was just so peaceful.

The owner takes very good care of the lodge (and I assume the smaller cabin though I didn't get to see it as someone else was in it). The food is catering and was excellent as were the choices of wines. He closes bar early which was good for our purposes, but know that if there, bar's done around 10pm. There is, however, an excellent little wine shoppe in the shopping area close by.

It's NOT a hotel so there are shared bathrooms and the rooms have just beds, tables, and a TV. But that's all you need as you won't be spending much time there given how much else is around. There are games for playing outside, hikes to take, water to jump into (it's cold but fun), and boats to ride.

I highly recommend checking this place out - all of us had a blast (two adults, a 12-year-old, and a 4-year-old).

Room tip: If your room is near the back you won't get wifi - it doesn't extend that far. Also, one side of the rooms face the water - you want that view - it's gorgeous!

Greeted by Manager Sam and his trusty canine partner Irish was a great start to our visit. With Irish around feel free to stroll in your bare feet and not worry about the presents left by the local geese!

This lodge is not a typical hotel. My sons and I stayed in the standard rooms which were impecably clean. A huge hot tub, mountain bikes, kayaks from a private pier. Walking distance from the ferry. As well as walking distance from town center, pubs, grocery stores, liquor stores and restaurants.

Only a 20 minute ferry ride from the Mainland Horseshoe Bay.

A huge common room with a stone fire place as well as a fire place outside. Besutiful grounds right on the ocean.

My next trip will be spent in the canvas tent perched over the cliff over looking the ocean. Roughing it at its best!!!

Thanks to Sam and his staff!!! And Irish..

Room tip: Spend a bit more for the private cabin. Or for the adventurous, the Canvas Tent!
