The kids were at camp and my husband was working - what better time to steal away for a solo adventure to a gem of a spot I have been dying to visit - Bamfield, BC. With no advance research, I called the first lodge I found in West Bamfield (boat access only) and I was lucky to land an... More

Beautiful location, friendly staff, and all around great service. Flash freezer and vaccum sealer were ideal for packaging the fish we caught before we travelled home. New dock addition looks amazing and provided an extra area to relax with a book, beer and a view. A local sea lion would visit the dock every afternoon to pick up scraps from... More

For fishing enthusiasts, the boat dock was efficient, well organized and great for guests returning from a fishing trip. Great layout for guides to gut, clean and prepare fish. Ice house was great for storing... More

I stayed in one of the houses, not the main lodge. It seemed quite nice and new and was a very comfortable stay. The smallish individual rooms each had their own bathroom and the bed in my room was great. We had meals in the main lodge and they were really very good. They were able to accommodate a bunch...

The service from staff and owners was excellent!! The bedrooms were very comfortable and the lodge setting was gorgeous!! The cook was incredible and so was the food. The newly added outside bar/gazebo was perfectly placed at its Oceanside location.

I'll never forget the kindness of Mel and Cheryl, owners of McKay Lodge I had just finished hiking the West Coast Trail and finished one day earlier than planned Mel most kindly picked me up at Pachena Bay trailhead and drove me to their charming beautiful lodge. Instantly I was greeted by other guests in a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere. Mel... More

Great weekend spent with family and above and beyond hospitality by everyone at the Lodge. Amazing location on the beautiful rugged Westcoast yet with all the creature comforts of home :) The meals were spectacular which matched the scenery perfectly. Treat yourself and your family and come stay at the Lodge, I know we'll be back!

We had another 6 night stay this year. Bed was great, food was wonderful, they remembered to get supplies for our dietary needs. Did forget the 'no dairy / no mustard' in the lunch sandwiches a couple of days, but plenty was packed so we didn't go hungry. Super friendly other guests happily sharing their fishing knowledge, as did the... More
