Absolutely unforgettable scenery, accommodations, and staff! We stayed in the Qualicum house during our stay at the resort. We were very impressed with the welcoming staff and the cleanliness of the cabin upon our arrival. The cabin offers stunning views of the harbour from both the lower and upper decks and is located in the most peaceful setting! The meals in the restaurant are definitely 5 star! We ate at the lodge everyday - nothing beats a delicious meal on the gorgeous patio with an awesome view of the ocean. We loved every meal we had - organic and locally grown ingredients are used and the combination of flavours - amazing! The staff at the resort are very helpful and knowledgeable about places to go and activities to do while on Quadra. We will definitely be back!!
