Wilderness Lodge brings luxury to remote BC coast
By TONY MINER
The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia is a traveler's paradise to begin with, but toss in a stunning luxury resort, add exciting eco-adventures, a top notch restaurant, spa and more, and you have a new entry on your northwest bucket list.
We recently spent a fantastic weekend at the West Coast Wilderness Lodge , which is located in the village of Egmont, north of Vancouver BC on Sechelt Inlet. Don't let the rustic exterior fool you. Inside each of the 26 guest rooms you'll find total class and comfort, with thoughtful furnishings, private decks, down bedding, and super fluffy towels and bath robes. Believe me, this is not “roughing it.” Our room had what only could be described as stunning; world class views of Jervis Inlet, Sechelt Inlet, Hotham Sound, with various islands and mountains also part of the vista.
The lodge may sound and feel remote, but there are a number of ways to get there that are really quite easy. You can drive north from Vancouver BC, take a short ferry ride, and complete the journey with an incredibly scenic drive. You can also relax on a bus, or go via seaplane, which is one of our favorite modes of travel.
We chose the friendly folks at Harbour Air Seaplanes and that turned out to be a great decision. We live not far from the Canadian border, so driving to their seaplane base on the south side of Vancouver Airport on the Fraser River was very easy. If you spend any time in BC you no doubt will see one of their fleet of seaplanes.
