The West Coast Wilderness Lodge

Egmont, Rural British Columbia

The hotel

Giving you all the adventures and solitude of Canada’s wilderness, with all the bliss of a super-luxury retreat, West Coast Wilderness Lodge nestles along the waterfront in the little fishing village of Egmont. Easily accessible, it is the perfect spot to appreciate all the Sunshine Coast has to offer. The waters promise calm kayaking after you’ve experienced the thrill of Skookumchuck Rapids a few miles away — just one of the water and wildlife focused experiences in store here. To really enjoy the lakes, fjords, islands, and cedar and fir forests, the lodge has everything from fishing gear to mountain bikes for rent, as well as guided treks and trips, and picnics. When you return, you can head onto the deck of Inlets Restaurant to survey the surroundings you’ve been exploring, before entering its timber-framed dining room to gaze out at the lake through a wall of windows while dining on authentic BC fare.

Despite smoky skies which marred the magnificent view, we enjoyed a delightful weekend tucked into a forest-view cabin savouring the outstanding food at the Lodge's Inlet Restaurant. Such delicious food and friendly service in a charming old-world ambience surrounded by giant wooden beams, firesides and first nation art. This place is special.

My family surprised me by treating me to a birthday dinner at the West Coast Wilderness Lodge. The food was delicious, the service staff were outstanding, and the setting, stunning, It doesn't get any better. What a gift!

Firstly this lodge is in the middle of nowhere. Which is great. It’s actually an easy drive in but there’s not much around it for about an hours drive. We caught the late ferry and knowing this we called them up to say we’d probably be arriving a bit late at night as the ferry schedule can be less than predictable on a long weekend.

Firstly this lodge is in the middle of nowhere. Which is great. It’s actually an easy drive in but there’s not much around it for about an hours drive. We caught the late ferry and knowing this we called them up to say we’d probably be arriving a bit late at night as the ferry schedule can be less than predictable on a long weekend. They truly went above and beyond to make sure we were able to access our room after hours and even left us some food as the restaurant was closed by our late hour arrival. It was far beyond what I was expecting and it was so hugely appreciated. And the food was fantastic. Delicious and fresh and the view you get while you eat is in my review!! We only stayed one night as a last min addition to a pre planned trip but I can’t wait to come back and spend several nights sometime very soon. Thanks again to all the staff at the lodge, Paul and Randi were the only names I recall but everyone was so great. Read less

We booked the 2 night "Princess Louisa Inlet" package from June 28th to July 1st, which was two days after they reopened after being closed for several months due to Covid-19. There was hardly anybody there, so we were upgraded from a forest view room to an ocean view room at no charge. There are four private rooms in each cabin, and we were the only people in our cabin the first night. Unfortunately there was a dog in an adjacent room the second night and it barked for 2 hours straight when the owners were away for dinner. We told the front desk who explained that normally pets aren't allowed, but they made an exception because there were hardly any guests booked. Unfortunately we bore the brunt of their generosity. We could tell that the staff were working hard to get everything in order. Everyone was so friendly, it was like being with new friends rather than employees of the Lodge! The nearby Egmont Adventure Centre is owned by the same people so the staff work in both places. Mark was our waiter the first night and he was funny, friendly and efficient. Lucas, our guide on the Princess Louisa Inlet tour, was fantastic as well. Best of all was the food at "Inlets", which is the restaurant at the Lodge (I'll write a separate review about it but suffice it to say that it was gourmet!). Our package included 2 breakfasts and 2 three-course dinners (tips not included). The sunsets from the huge deck are gorgeous. Wifi is adequate. There's a trail down to the rocky beach. This is a place to go if you want to get away from it all in a beautiful setting with great staff. I highly recommend it. And yes, they are following all the guidelines re: sanitizing, social distancing, etc. Read less

With COVID-19 restrictions, we are travelling close to home this year. The package which included all breakfasts and dinners was a wonderful treat. The restaurant is “fine dining” with a decent B.C. wine list. They managed the safety requirements of the pandemic beautifully. We took our masks but we were always able to be more than 6’ from everyone so we, mostly, were able to not focus in the special care. It was clearly there but did not hinder our experience in any way. The only thing that made this a 4 instead of a 5 was the shower. A bit dark and small for the rest of the accommodation. I wish there was a 4.75. Read less
