  • West Coast Retreat

    Alert Bay: Lodge
    4 BDR • 4 BA • Sleeps 12 • #59769
    458 to 525 CAD/night
    Alert Bay Lodge is a west coast retreat lying off the pristine north-east coast of Vancouver Island, B.C. Located on the south shore of Cormorant Island, the lodge overlooks Johnstone Strait. This narrow, glacier-carved waterway is home to a population of about 200 orcas, the largest pod in the world. Cedar log in construction, the Lodge was originally a church. This legacy is reflected in the arched cedar beams that frame the expansive common room and the former pulpit which now serves as the dining room. Guests can peruse the library, relax by the woodstove and exchange stories with others. Wireless internet is available without charge. The main kitchen, including a cold room and freezer, is available. Orcas are often spotted from the sundeck, which is a stone's throw from the beach. Across the Strait from the Lodge, the Vancouver Island Mountain Range rises from the shores of Vancouver Island, providing a stunning backdrop to our ocean view. The lodge is busiest from mid-June to the end of September when orca and grizzly bear viewing is prime. Year round attractions unique to Alert Bay include the U'Mista Cultural Centre. Known for its potlatch collection, the Centre is a 20 minute walk away along the ocean road and is open Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. About one kilometer inland lie the Ecological Gardens and Big Tree Trail - haunting and beautiful at any time year. Our resident managers live on site and would be pleased to offer their support during your stay.
