Nice location,comfortable beds. Didn't like the caharge for each persons over double occupancy. It is a three bedroom chalet.To charge for extra persons is a rip off.

8/10 Very good

Absolutely beautiful location - not too far away from civilisation, but quiet enough to make you feel a hundred miles away. I stayed in 9-1 and the view was divine, and it felt super cozy, and it was great having a kitchen - stock up in Powell river - but my only complaint is how loud it is staying underneath someone. Even them just walking around felt like an earthquake (when they walked up the stairs it was even worse!), and I could hear all their conversations as if I were in there myself - so if you are a light sleeper like myself, don’t take a bottom floor for sure. Otherwise, absolutely fantastic place to stay, and I would be more than happy to return!

A cabin, actually.
Facilities are on gravel road. Felt very remote in late April. No office staff when we arrived; friendly groundskeeper filled in best she could.... Cabin was down very steep steps, but footing was good (but dry conditions).... Cabin is very Spartan... Kitchen very functional.... Those room signs: "...if you don't obey you will be charged,,,".... Beautiful view of water, where not obstructed by trees.... Local restaurant/bar was closed.... So empty and quiet it bordered on spooky; more like camping, actually. (BTW, we are not city-slickers; we live in the country in forest). Might be great for a large fishing party, say. Good dock.
