Greeted by Manager Sam and his trusty canine partner Irish was a great start to our visit. With Irish around feel free to stroll in your bare feet and not worry about the presents left by the local geese! This lodge is not a typical hotel. My sons and I stayed in the standard rooms which were impecably clean. A... More

Bowen Island Lodge was recommended to us as we planned a special birthday/family/friend weekend. I cannot say enough good things about the Lodge, the Management, their facilities, comfortable beds, bathrooms (clean although shared which isn't something we are used to), and of course the amazing property, the ocean, the list goes on. It was special having the whole facility for... More

Communal bathrooms and a complete 'Camp' feeling was the initial impression. The rooms were not kept clean every day and they were very small or rather cramped. The price was outrageous for something of that quality - they should not be able to charge more than 60-70 dollar for what they offer. On the other hand - the place is... More

I don't understand how they can charge 150 for a room that barely could hold a double bed. It really was very small, and having shared bathrooms at this price is just ludicrous. Would not stay here again, unless the price was like 50-70. I've stayed in roomier hostels.

My husband and I recently got married at the Bowen Island Lodge. It was perfect! We love the outdoors and camping and wanted a wedding that reflected our hobbies. The Lodge offered an 'outdoorsy' feel without being too rustic (although the bathrooms are shared)! It sleeps about 40 people. You actually get the whole lodge to yourself when you book... More

The company that I work for had decided to have the department heads go on a team building retreat. I had never heard about Bowen Island Resort, and when I arrived all my hesitations about going to a smaller lodge rather than a typical hotel were gone in seconds. We were all greeted at the door by a very helpful... More

I was told the lodge is under new management and has been updated with wonderful beds, bedding etc. Every room now also has Television (but who needs it with a wonderful view of the bay). This was actually our first visit to this location. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the ferry. We went with a choir for... More
