On a lovely cove with lots of wildlife. Restaurant really good and free breakfast great. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Room was old but well kept, nice deck. Indoor pool & hot tub. Billiard/Pool table a nice extra. The island has lots of short or longer walks. Sandstone formations on beaches intriguing. Ferries in Active Pass were fun to watch--up to 3... More

My fiance found this hidden gem online and treated me to a wonderful birthday weekend. The management and staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Inn and totally enjoyed the rustic old hotel feel even though everything has been upgraded. Waking up to the sun rising over the bay was spectacular. The cabins look fabulous...

Hello Ron, thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad you had an awesome birthday weekend.

Okay, for all the complainers out there, let's get the record straight: this is a small gulf island, it's a small community; don't come here with big city expectations, this is what makes the place charming, if you want luxury and state of the art, stay in your city. Now that's out of the way, we LOVED our stay in... More

Hello Alla-Rustica Thank you for writing a review and I am happy you loved your stay. In the winter months I try to have a blazing fire going in the big fireplace most mornings when guests come down for coffee and muffins. It takes logs about four feet long so it takes a while to get going but its worth... More

Wonderfully appointed cottage. Fabulous view. Lovely windows. Granite countertops. Bathroom tiling looks like it is a home job. Unfortunately, staff are not overly friendly but this seems to be a theme on Mayne Island.

My husband whisked me an hour away from home to celebrate my birthday and this place made us feel like we were on a far away vacation!

Hello Cthomas, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes I agree, although it only takes a little over one hour to get here by Ferry it feels like an escape to a far away vacation spot.

I recently (Oct 2016) stayed at this resort. Let me first go over what I though was good about it.. We went in the month of Oct and I will say that this is not the best season to come to Mayne island, or BC for that matter since this is regarded as the rainy season. I found the staff... More

I came here with some lady friends to get away from the city and drink some wine and relax. Check, check, check. The resort is excellent. It's small, but has everything you'd need to do in a weekend. There are bike rentals, kayak rentals, SUP, hot tub, pool, spa, restaurants, and, most importantly, a liquor store. The resort provided a... More
