We stayed here for four days in June in the main lodge. It's a wonderful place away from it all, with wonderful views and grounds. Freshly cooked evening meals by Julia were a delight, coffee and cake on the on the deck, watching the birds and widlife was superb. We spent most of our time there, in and around exploring... More

Stopped by while kayaking and saw the beautiful property, visited with Dan (the owner.) Lovely recently renovated cottages, and attractive rustic West Coast main lodge overlooking Johnstone Strait. Will definitely try this place out next time we're in the area.

This time stayed in the lodge main building. Lovely room with shower. Great dinners cooked by Julia. Great conversation with the owners. They should be very proud of this fabulous place. If you want to wind down it is perfect , if you want excitement whale watching and grizzly tours nearby

This hotel is very secluded and should be romantic, but it's not. I feel the owners have been in the hotel game too long iit feels as though your a paying hiderence. Not much love here any more it's a job. Shame really. I know their off the grid but Dan goes out of his way to reduce your conveniences.

As others have reviewed, this could do with a tidy up and refurb. I think Dan said that it was coming? There was no special greeting when we arrived although we met bot Dan and Sandra later who were both pleasant. They tend to circulate at dinner time. The food is lovely with a great variety, you book for dinner... More

The location is literally fantastic, the lodge is signposted off the main road to Telegraph Cove and down a 3 km track, you really do feel like you are going to a hide away wilderness lodge. Outside and around the lodge there is a small bay, with a jetty, and a real "hidden cove" behind a small island. This place... More

We had a hiccup with our room having been told by our agent that we had a cottage but we had a room in the lodge. Putting aside our disapointment we had an excellent visit. Dan and Sandra are both friendly and helpful and the evening meals we had were excellent with the fish and crab dishes being especially good.... More

Loved the rustic lodge. Being a photography buff I managed to capture some shots of black bears that wondered into the yard. Saw the lone otter sunning on the dock. The food was excellent. The hosts Dan and Sandra were wonderful. Enjoyed my visit immensely and the two days that I stayed at Hidden Cove just flew by so quickly.... More

What a lovely spot this lodge is built on. Within an hour of arrival we had seen a river otter eating a fish on the jetty and a black bear turning stones over for food on the lodge beach. The food was outstanding. Imaginative ,interesting and plentiful. I did find the couple who owned it seemed to be watching you... More

This was not a cheap option, but we had stayed here before and liked the location. Saw bears every day on the beach and were picked up from the jetty for trips - a bonus. Dinner was good but breakfasts could have been a bit more imaginative considering the prices charged. Rooms are fairly good and you have to accept... More
