About this property

Alert Bay Lodge - Waterfront Accommodation in Alert Bay, BC - Garden View With Loft and Hot Breakfast

Waterfront room with patio and fireplace
This room features a queen sized bed. There is a personal vanity in the room as well as a full bathroom with a shower/soaker tub. The room features a mini fridge, hangers and a storage closet for belongings. A small loft can accommodate one child or a limber adult. In addition to our private rooms with en suite bathrooms, all guests have access to the Great Room where they can peruse the library, enjoy the multimedia room, cozy up by the fire and connect with fellow travelers. The only TV resides in the Great Room. Our resident manager provides great local knowledge and will welcome you with a beverage, map of the Island and take your order for breakfast the next morning. There's a short trail up into the woods which leads to our "Eagle Lookout". For those late night conversationalists, please feel free to use our Great Room.Alert Bay Lodge is a west coast retreat lying off the pristine north-east coast of Vancouver Island, B.C. Located on the south shore of Cormorant Island, the lodge overlooks Johnstone Strait. This narrow, glacier-carved waterway is home to a population of over 200 resident orcas, the largest pod in the world. The lodge is busiest from mid-June to the end of September when orca and grizzly bear viewing is prime. We utilize a variety of operators for our bear tours and whale watching trips, most of whom pick up near the lodge. Please contact us to make sure we find the right tour for you. Towards late September things start to wind down. There is an out-migration of sorts: the salmon have moved into the streams, the bears retreat to hibernate and the resident orcas head out into the open ocean. Most visitors to the Island follow this cycle. Others come to enjoy the winter storms, savour the crisp air tinged with cedar and salt and read by the fire. Others simply find solitude in this small community. The U’Mista Culture Centre is open and our few restaurants and pubs keep varying hours. Turning right from the BC Ferry Terminal, follow the ocean road for 1.5 kilometers. On your left you will see a brightly painted yellow building with a large sign in front that says "Alert Bay Lodge".

5/5 Excellent

excellent location
charming hosts, amazing view

4/5 Good

Pleasant b&b
Great interaction with the owner and his family. Very nice and large common room. Very enjoyable breakfasts. The downsides would be that the bed mattress was uncomfortable (too soft in the middle) and the walls are thin: we could hear next room occupants talking and snoring.
