“Amazing place”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We had the most wonderful time at Eagle Nook. It's a magical place with wonderful views with water in front and back. The food was amazing and every morning we watched sea lions while we ate breakfast. The sea safari was brilliant.

Just another fishing trip I thought. Wrong, fishing with the Lucky Sport Fishing (Dan) and crew was over the top. We caught so many fish even at the end of the season, it was crazy. The resort accommodations and food is first class. I'm looking forward to taking my son for there father's day package.

We have just come back from spending 3 nights at Eagle Nook - what a fab experience, from the excellent facilities in the log cabin, the chef and staff giving us top quality food each day, canoeing and the hi-light for us doing the wild life boat trip. On our 3rd attempt of trying to see black bears in the wild - we finally did it this time at Eagle Nook! All the staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Go and experience the wonderful wildlife right on the door step and relax in very comfortable surroundings in the evening.

My wife & I enjoyed 3 days at Eagle Nook in late June. (I wrote a review the day we returned but it disappeared from Trip Advisor - I must have goofed). We had a blast!! We flew up there & back on a float plane from Seattle & had quite a scenic flight each way. We even saw humpback whales.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the amazing staff members at the dock & shown to our quite large and comfy room. We then had a pleasant lunch & went for a hike through the woods. Dinner was very good - both the food & the service.

Next morning we went fishing with the house charter company - Lucky Sportsfishing. With the 3 of us in the boat, we had plenty of room & as non-fishers we received a tutorial in procedures & expectations. A few hours later we headed back to the lodge with 5 salmon. We caught our limit of Chinook & a Coho as well. We even 'fed' an eagle! Our fish were cleaned & cut up then frozen for our return flight home the next day.

Dinner of course was delicious. After a very comfortable sleep & a terrific breakfast we went for a kayak ride in the bay in front of the Lodge.

The plane was ready to ferry us home. Ahhh - what a fun & relaxing stay!

We just returned from our 5th visit to Eagle Nook and had such a great experience that I decided that I needed to write a review. Both this year & last year our visit began with sitings of gray whales and humpbacks on our skiff ride to the lodge. Last year 3 grays surrounded our boat & the driver was very cool with staying as long as we liked to watch them; they were 10 feet away! It was late July & we fished for 2 days & caught our limit of King & Coho. Barkley Sound was full of humpbacks, which was a thrill to watch. This year we hit the jackpot. We brought another couple & the fellows rode out to the south shole & limited in King, Coho & Halibut (though the halibut was small), and we saw a humpback & her calf breach not even 100 years from our skiff - check out my photo! My girlfriend & I hiked the trails that were filled with moss-covered trees & patrolled by eagles, and Eagle Nook provided the bear spray, which we, thankfully, didn't need! We hiked to a pristine beach where anyone could feel comfortable sun bathing - nude or not. Afterwards we treated ourselves to massages & facials...it just doesn't get any better! They also offered kyaking & paddle boarding, but we were feeling a bit too lazy...& preferred to enjoy the Canadian beer & a little R & R instead. There is wi-fi, movies & games, including a pool table, but I recommend disconnecting instead; sit back & let Eagle Nook take care of you.

Dinner is always superb, and the outside fire-pit & hot tub are ready to go. And, if you want, the chef will prepare the salmon you caught for dinner that very same day! This is a great lodge for fishing, but the real insider's secret is that it is romantic, rustic and a fantastic get-away for couples too. We have travelled to Eagle Nook 3 ways; you can fly in (expensive), take the ferry from Vancouver to Nanaimo & drive (2 hrs?), or drive up from Victoria (4 to 5 hours w/stops).

Room Tip: The cabins are romantic & rustic for two. Not fancy, but cute & super-clean. The rooms are l...

Eagle Nook was a fantastic place for a company fishing trip. We have tried several different options over the years and and finally found the perfect fit. Spectacular property, well appointed and very comfortable logde with great meals and a wonderful professional staff. The fishing guides are top notch fisherman, boat handlers, guides and friends that make you feel welcome in their group.

This resort is set in a breathtaking cove. Natural beauty surrounds the lodge. There are so many activities its hard to choose. Fishing, kayaking, ecotour, hiking, or just staring out at the mountains and sea. Wildlife is everywhere! Sea lions, whales, eagles, bears and seals! The food is five star. A menu to choose from that has variety to amaze everyone. For those not wanting to wander out the spa is a relaxing alternative. (I loved the aromatherapy massage). And there are places to curl up and read your book. We had a happy hour outside by the fire pit. Fresh oysters on the grill! This was our first visit and we really need to go back. Just not enough time to doit all! As others have said the staff is gracious, attentive and professional. Eagle Nook did not miss a beat.
