Escape From City Life
An inn with old-time charm and history. Quiet and serene surrounding. No en-suite bathroom but there are two shared bathrooms that are neat and tidy. Excellent food in the restaurant. About 10+ km of Hwy 540 was under construction (Aug 2019) so beware.

Lovely relaxing spot!
An oasis at the end of a long, lonely road! Wonderful spot, very clean. Good food and service. However, tall people beware...make sure to get a room that has no footboards on the beds! Otherwise, lovely view, great garden!

The reception was wonderful and the food very delicious. It is a long way out, almost two hours from the ferry but well worth it when you get out there!!

Wow what a great experience our 2 night stay here was. One of the best we've had anywhere. Comfortable rooms and beds, Fast wifi and Shirin, the most gracious, friendly and helpful hostess we've ever had the pleasure to meet. She even took time out from her busy day to sit with us and provide more than enough information to fill our days with exploration, discovery and dining. And speaking of dining, smoked trout, cheese, crackers and grapes followed by pan fried lemon pepper whitefish with caramelized onion mashed and veg on the patio surrounded by myriad hummingbirds visiting the many feeders hanging above the rail is in itself worth the trip to Meldrum Bay but of course there's more. The historic, well maintained inn and lovingly tended grounds are a pure delight. On our second evening we arrived too late for dinner but just in time for an impromptu vocal/ukulele performance by one of the guests (way to go Ruby. You were wonderful!) and Shirin was kind enough to accede to our request for a smoked trout platter and two glasses of wine even though we weren't expected for a meal. Thank you! Can't wait to go back. We'll probably spend a third night when we do.
