We stayed at the lodge for four nights, kayaking every day. The two ladies in charge were delightful, helpful hosts. Rooms were inviting and comfortable. The set-up is European Pension style with common bathrooms and a very large common area with kitchen. Breakfast was included and was hearty for all of us outdoor types.

First impression on arrival - unbelievable view and quietness. Simple but sparkling clean rooms. Wood burning sauna right on the water – we were jumping into the ocean to cool down. Then the next morning - the sunrise fills the place with sunshine and warmth. Delicious and healthy breakfasts cooked by Beth. A hiking trail that starts right by the... More

Stayed at Discovery Island Lodge for three nights. Kayaking, hiking, swimming. Couldn't have been better. Fabulous breakfasts by Beth. Comfortable beds, stunning views, luminescence in waters. Porpoises, Orcas, eagles and friendly staff. Who could ask for more. I am new to kayaking but was made to feel like an expert. Beth is an astonishing guide, both patient and knowledgeable. I... More

If you're looking for a lodge from to serve as your base from which to develop your kayak paddling skills, or serve as accommodations for your guided or unguided day trips, or for launching that extended multi-day kayak tour you will not find a more comfortable lodge or beautiful setting, or more capable staff than that at Discovery Island Lodge,...

The other reviews from August 2013 say it well. My wife and I spent 2 nights here, and enjoyed it a lot. Great staff went out of their way to make the stay special, up to and including a 'private' kayak tour when the group we were intended to join changed their agenda. Access is via a gravel road with... More

Discovery Islands Lodge is a former fishing camp that was totally renovated to serve as a lodge, both for kayakers leaving from the premise, daytrippers as well as a stop over for kayakers on their way through the area. The rooms are immaculate, everything is super clean, the views from each room fantastic. The bathrooms are shared and the kitchen... More

We stayed two nights here and were sorry to have to come home. A fairly easy drive from Vancouver Island, the lodge is off the grid and looks out into wilderness. Solar power runs the lodge but it is part of the experience and no hardship for the guests. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and provide excellent breakfasts each morning.... More

I agree with the other positive comments posted. This wilderness experience was truly magical for us. We spent 2 days there in early September. The 3 staff members we met were helpful and friendly. Our breakfasts were nutritious and delicious. We enjoyed spending some evening time with the other guests. As a bonus a humpback whale came right past the... More

The lodge is perfect for any interests or skill level. Owners and staff are ultra friendly. The lodge is rustic yet civilized. They provide an excellent vegetarian breakfast and there are hot solar showers. You can choose activities from sea kayaking (their specialty--rent or bring your own), guided tours, hiking, or just relaxing in the wonderful day room with a... More

I stayed at the Discovery Islands Lodge for a weekend at the end of August this year, and found it to be a wonderful respite from city living. It felt like a true wilderness experience: other than eagle nests and kelp beds, there are no other accommodations close by, and while easily accessible the Lodge doesn’t see many folk other... More
