“What a wonderful adventure in Port Alberni. The boat is beautiful and such a piece of history. We arrived on a rainy night and felt very cozy inside. Dinner is not to be missed! Incredible food by and wonderful hosts. Rooms are exactly as you’d expect on a boat. They are nicely appointed and beds are very comfortable.” – Dana, via Google Reviews

“Such a great find. Rooms were very quiet, and clean with an impressive view of the lake and beaver dam. Restaurant food was so good, reasonably priced with unique dishes. Got to use the kayaks on site, which was very convenient. Staff were extremely friendly. Great hiking nearby. Will definitely come back again.” – Speedy, via TripAdvisor

“This cabin has become our favourite spot for a summer ‘staycation’ on Vancouver Island. The cabin is super cute and stocked with everything one (or two!) might need for a fun and relaxing getaway, and the location cannot be beat. We loved the new additions of A/C and the SUPs. The only problem is that it’s always SO hard to leave!” – Kris, via vrbo.com
