West Coast Wilderness Lodge

West Coast Wilderness Lodge

The Sunshine Coast & Desolation Sound, Canada

West Coast Wilderness Lodge is an undiscovered jewel on the west coast of Canada. Located on the northern tip of the Sunshine Coast, northwest of Vancouver, the lodge is tucked amid cedars and firs, with spectacular views of the Pacific coast.

There’s a range of rooms and suites. Each of the suites features a king size bed with down duvets, a window seating area and a private balcony overlooking either the forest or the ocean. Dining at Inlets Restaurant is a truly unique experience, it offers exceptional views and specialises in fresh West Coast cuisine, using local and organic ingredients.

Close by is the coastal village of Egmont, a small village dating back to early European settlement but with an older First Nations history. Princess Louisa Inlet and the Skookumchuck Rapids are also accessible from the lodge by sea-plane or boat. Kayaking tours, wildlife tours and marine excursions, such as the Princess Louisa Inlet tour are available to take you to true wilderness locations.

OUR OPINION:

This is an easily reached wilderness lodge in a fabulous setting on the water. While the lodge attracts weddings and events, its impressive location and views, and the range of tours, make it a worthwhile stop.

Rooms

There’s a selection of rooms and suites overlooking either the forest of the ocean. Rooms and suites are spacious and thoughtfully decorated to feel fresh and open, while still maintaining a lodge atmosphere with wood furnishings and comforting touches. Each room and suite has a private deck or balcony to relax on, along with a satellite TV, mini-fridge, kettle and coffee machine. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout.

Location

The lodge is located 145 km northwest of Vancouver on the little-explored Sunshine Coast. Surrounded by fjord-like waterways, lush forest and mountains, it is a scenic location. While, nestled in the wilderness, the small town of Egmont is easily reached in just a few minutes, and the larger towns of Madeira Park and Sechelt are 30 minutes and one hour away respectively.

Food and drink

Inlets Restaurant boasts a panoramic view of the ocean and surrounding islets, both from the covered outdoor terrace and the floor-to-ceiling interior windows. Breakfast and dinner are included during your stay and the small menu features classic West Coast cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. The lodge can also arrange for special dining experiences and on-the-go food.

Facilities and activities

The lodge makes the most of its surroundings with several guided tours on offer. Take a boat into Princess Louisa Inlet, a hike or boat trip onto the Skookumchuck Rapids, hike one of the local trails for aerial views of the peninsula or rent one of the kayaks or jet skis for your own exploration. For the more adventurous, you may wish to fly to a mountain lake for a canoe trip, or take a helicopter to a mountain top and hike in the alpine meadows.
