Another great weekend for a knitting retreat with friends and family!

Kiwi Lodge is located at the north end of Ladysmith harbour. The owners Doug and Peggy have created a relaxing atmosphere that is quiet and beautiful. There are kiwi vines, (trees?), that are harvested in the fall and kept fresh, frozen, jams and juice.
A lovely private hot tub that overlooks the orchard and harbour.
If anyone has dietary restrictions Peggy will accommodate their needs, just let her know ahead of time.
The lodge is close to Ladysmith and Nanaimo, the local airport and beautiful drives through the local farm area. If a day trip is planned to Chemanius, Duncan , or maybe Victoria, it is possible to make if back to the lodge for your evening.
Enjoy your visit.

A wonderful place to stay, eat, enjoy

My first stay at Kiwi Cove Lodge was with 19 friends. We rented the facility for the Awakening World Society. It is located just minutes from the Nanaimo airport and close to a BC ferry terminal. The rooms were spacious, clean and all had excellent views: some of the forest most with an ocean/orchard view. I have been on many retreats at different facilities and without a doubt Kiwi Cove has the best food. Make sure you take home some kiwifruit jam. The owners are very warm, helpful and flexible. There are great places to take walks around the property. Like warm water many of our participants enjoyed the hot tub. Sometimes several times a day. Our stay was for 5 days and we were so impressed that we booked 2 more retreats at Kiwi Cove Lodge
