Arriving in Port Renfrew on a whim, we found that many of the places to stay had just 'closed for the season'. Following a sign to Big Fish Lodge, we were eagerly greeted by Lucas, who showed us in, cranked up the heating and made us feel at home .... the fact that there was no one else there certainly helped the homely feeling.
Obviously an old lodge, we found it very clean and well set up.
After cooking our own breakfast the following morning, Lucas dropped in to get us some local tips and provided a hand drawn map to 'Avatar Grove' - a hidden patch of old growth forest 20 min drive away. Magical.
Our 13 month old loved crawling around the vast lower level, as well as 'conquering' the staircase numerous times.
