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.

We booked the wilderness package for three nights with half board. It was a much needed break from the stress of being healthcare workers during the pandemic at hotspots area. The lodge was beautiful, the flowers especially the fragrance of the lily was so nice, we immediately relaxed on arrival. We had an ocean front king room with awesome view, in cabin 2. The check in was fast and they helped us book a double kayak at Egmont Adventure Centre. The room itself was slightly dated, the carpet has a wet patch that took the whole 3 days to be dry but it smelled clean so we put up with it. The shower sometimes has not enough water at peak hours but they are depending on the well system and BC has no rain for a long time already, we were conscious of saving water so that was fine. Bed was super comfortable, but it was a bit hot with no air conditioning, despite that we slept really well. The wifi was almost non existent, again this is a wilderness lodge and we are glad to be off the grid for a while. It is really nice sitting outside reading a book with the breeze and sun and watching boats go by… The restaurants was beautiful and we saw orca swam by during our dinner one of the days. There are a good selection of menu for dinner and the nightly specials. Food were average though with starters and dessert better than main course. Breakfast was better especially the benedict. We have a really good time. Read less

Everything about Wilderness lodge is perfect. The lodge is located on the northern tip of Sunshine Coast, and is quite away from all the hustle bustle of city life.

Everything about Wilderness lodge is perfect. The lodge is located on the northern tip of Sunshine Coast, and is quite away from all the hustle bustle of city life. Running it can’t be easy and still it does a terrific Job. Our experience was amazing and 90% because of the staff. Everyone we encountered, check inn staff, house keeping, restaurant staff, the owner, all were super helpful and kind. They even let us use electric outlet all night to charge our car. The lodge was busy because of the long weekend but the hospitality and surroundings make you feel like you are in a peaceful and blissful island (which it’s not). We took the jet ski tour from the Egmont adventure Centre which was booked by the hotel. Cam and Taylor were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend taking this tour or one of the amazing boat tours (unfortunately they were sold out). We rented a Kayak and kind of lost our way. Cam from the Centre came rushing to guide us back. Over all an amazing weekend and we will definitely be back again. Read less

The staff is so kind and accommodating without being stuffy and pretentious! Peter our server is professional, attentive and actually pretty funny! We started with Roast Brussel Sprouts with toasted hazelnuts and bacon and honestly could just eat 2 of these for dinner!! However I did have the Smoked sable fish entree and my friend had the Cioppino which were both delish! Just go!! Read less

This lodge was wonderful. We had a forest room and felt like we had the forest to ourselves - extremely relaxing. The suite was roomy, clean and comfortable. The food and service from reception to restaurant was excellent. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was fabulous. Highly recommend a visit!
