An amazing place where their commitment to local, sustainable produce and high quality service makes the stay so fantastic.
The rooms are fun - Murphy beds mean that there's more space. But, you hardly need it, considering the lounge chairs by the ocean (or when it's cold, like it is now, you can go in the spa lounge) or the hot tub, steam caves, outdoor heated pool, or more are on offer. The spa is fantastic - amazing hydrotherapy (a MUST!!) with divine massages and services available for reservation.
The food is one of the greatest highlights. Local seafood, cheese, meats, bread...you name it, they have it. I definitely recommend that you book - the restaurant is a favourite with locals and tourists alike, and you may be waiting if you don't have a reservation. But, you MUST eat here...don't cheap out and go to McDonalds in Courtenay!!
Bring some good books and unwind...this place is ideal for getting away without it breaking the bank...and trust me, you'll feel a whole lot happier and relaxed than if you take a stressful flight for 12 hours somewhere else!!

... Once again, it was a non-existent corner that made them agree. We still missed the final corner – which the handheld GPS would have given us correctly, but the highway designers must be used to this as there was a u-turn to the ferries a couple of km further on. From there we entered a booth where we purchased our ticket ($80 for 2 adults and a car) and entered lane 4 for the 90 minute crossing to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. We were told the food on ...
... and douglas fir. Early again for the next ferry but walked around and watched the smaller vessel come in. All aboard and off to Saltry Bay - a shorter trip but just as scenic. Off and driving for another hour until we came to Lund, a pretty little cove, full of boats where the water taxi services the nearby islands. Very low tide so steep ramp to get all our stuff down and Chris took the car to ...
... see any on their plates. J For those that wanted to know the brains (okay technically all their innards not just their “brain”) turn to a liquid-y mess once cooked. You suck out the juice and it really isn’t bad. It’s a very sweet fishy juice but the aftertaste is a little sharp. I would most likely try it again but I was describing it to table (how polite I know but they asked) and I got a little queasy after that so I ...
