This well known lodge now has energetic new owners who are working hard to make the Imperial Eagle a Bamfield icon. The 5 cabins are all undergoing renovations and all will soon have kitchens added so that guests can prepare their own meals. Located on an acre of gardens overlooking the inlet, The Imperial Eagle is perfectly located for explorations of the area, and both Don and Dianne are impeccable, genial hosts. We were thrilled to discover this place and this wild part of our coast. Anyone can go to Long Beach, but those wanting a special experience should opt for Bamfield. Definitely take the Frances Barkley working boat and enjoy the half day trip there rather than trying to drive that killer logging road in from Port Alberni.
