I can't believe there is only one review for this place. Let me add to, what that review says. The lodge is in an old but fully updated building 33 nautical miles from Port Alberni, on the edge of the Broken Islands group, the world's best ocean kayak/canoe destination. It's a park, with lots of campgrounds. The Lodge is the only place to stay near the islands. Rooms are small, but large enough for two. Queen beds, good mattresses, dead quiet, a great night's sleep. Good wi-fi, TV in lounge. Lavatory in rooms, shared toilet/showers. Good, simple food. Ten white, ten red wine list @ 15. BYOB encouraged. Various beers @ $5/6. Campfire at night, with host playing guitar and singing. Nice tenor voice. Guests are encouraged to play percussion and join in. One hint: bring beach shoes. The water is swimmable, but it's a shingle beach.
In the summer, the outfit that owns the lodge runs a special. For $300 you get two round trip fares on the boat that serves the water-only communities in the area (which they also own, the boat, that is), lunch and dinner on Sunday, breakfast on Monday, and your room. A bargain.More
