I booked the cottage and 2 days of fishing for my husbands birthday. I know nothing about fishing and Shannon was very helpful in getting me familiar with what the cottages and Wicked Fishing charters had to offer. The cottages are lovely and have nice updated touches. Check in staff was inexperienced but suspect that is due to pandemic and challenging gets in even getting staff in move remote locations. She did check with owners when asked for info. Location is fabulous...good view and very quiet. Due to Covid we had preferred this to a fishing lodge but would do it this way again even without a pandemic as it suited us perfectly. Our Fishing guide Toby was awesome and really worked hard at making sure our Two days were successful. He was helpful and geared his conversation to both of us even though I was a ‘non fishing person’. The packing of the fish went smoothly and we had a very good experience. We will definitely be back.

Room tip: All cabins have lovely view.

Thank you so much for choosing us for your husband's surprise trip! It was a great way to wrap up our fishing season. It is always great to have new guests try our cabins, if they have previously done other styles of trips. We look forward to hosting you again one day!Take care, Shannon

Like everyone, stuck at home with Covid and going stir crazy in Victoria! So we decided to plan a fishing trip. and get some R&R as well. We booked two cottages (#7 and #8) and arrived mid afternoon on Sunday. Very surprised to see how beautifully appointed each cottage was. Great views of the bay; jacuzzi tub; fireplace and a king size bed that was super comfortable. We enjoyed our meals on the deck and even though there are 8 cottages side by side, it felt very private. And the fishing?!?!? Wow - went out with Wade (owner of Wicked Salmon) and for 2 novice women that have never fished, we had the time of our lives! Caught 2 Chinooks each, plus 4 black seabass each - fun fun fun!!! We are coming back!!

This was my fourth stay here, and I will back again next year. Another fantastic stay @ Bear Cove. Amazing fishing with Wicked Salmon Fishing Charters. Beautiful views, sparkling clean, and great hosts. Lots of big fish caught with the pro Wade Dayley. Highly recommend!!

stayed as a getaway for 3 nights but with a 2 nite min. had to stay anyway, had to clean coffee maker for quite a while till usable, window above bed handle broken so could only open then had to go outside to close by pushing it.
window in kitchen needs new blind, for cleaning would give 2/5 stars
view of ocean is wonderful and seemed to be very quiet at nite.
if you sleep in forget it no way to block skylight so up early no matter what.
seems catered to the fishing charter, even chatted to neighbor and they also agreed 3/5 stars.
won’t return.

We are sorry you left feeling this way Michael.My cleaning staff had told me you thought the window was broken. It actually has a lever that needs to be in the upward position to open the seal.We installed all high-end Loewen windows when building 20 years ago.You are one of very few who didn't notice this.We have since replaced the uneven blind, these things happen and we appreciate that you let us know.Most people really enjoy the skylight, or perhaps we do have mostly early risers at our resort. We are generally marketing to fishermen, you're right. After having 85% of our pre-booked clients ripped out from under us this year, we had to use creative and last minute advertising to attract a new client. This summer has been challenging to say the least, but we are grateful to have stayed very busy. Staffing has been a huge issue also, this may explain why your coffee pot was not perfect, for that I apologize.If you had come to our office, called, emailed about your dissatisfaction, we would have likely rectified this and come to a financial understanding.So thanks for the 3/5, this really helps! Best,Shannon

We had a wonderful stay at Bear Cove Cottages and a couple of super fishing days with Wicked Salmon Charters. Would highly recommend if you are looking for an all-inclusive fishing package in Port Hardy.
