Set on the water’s edge with views across British Columbia’s Inside Passage, find the charming 94-room Painter’s Lodge. The lodge is located 2.5-miles from Campbell River and is a great base from which to explore the Discovery Islands and embark on wildlife excursions such as whale and bear watching, or salmon fishing – for which the area is renowned.
The simple yet comfortable accommodations include Garden or Ocean View Rooms, Loft Suites and One to Three Bedroom Cabins. The lodge offers a seasonal outdoor swimming and hot tub, fitness centre and tennis court; for those seeking more relaxation and pampering there’s the Aveda Spa at the lodge’s sister property April Point on the adjacent Quadra Island.
Legend’s Dining Room offers gourmet cuisine, making use of locally sourced produce and specialising in seafood and its popular Sunday Brunch. For light bites and a casual atmosphere, The Fireside Lounge offers a place to unwind while enjoying a drink, tapas and stunning views of Discovery Passage. Tyee Pub is a favourite with hotel guests and locals alike, offering hearty comfort food in a casual setting.
