Every year we do more and more to improve the lodge and rest assured that there are plans in the works to improve our curb appeal. We realize that the front parking lot area is still looking a bit rustic,... More

The gracious hosts were friendly, kind and very helpful. The food and service was exceptional and all homeade. It felt like a home away from home feel with the many sections of the lodge you could lounge in. It was clean and well run always with a smile from Jen and Giacomo. The homemade from scratch Italian dishes and deserts... More

As chance would have it, we picked the few rainy days in the entire summer to travel, but even that couldn’t dampen the mood during our stay at Alert Bay Lodge. Jen and Jiacomo (aka Jack) were fabulous hosts - warm, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Our room (#4) was spacious and included a private deck, and the entire place was... More

They have a very good relationship with the locals and are able to source information and assistance whenever required. Jack is an excellent cook and Jen... More

We travelled to Alert Bay to explore the culture and beauty of the Island with friends who booked our accommodations for us. I'll be honest in saying that when we came to the address and looked at the exterior of the building, my initial thought was 'oh, oh'. But we headed on in. Jen was there to greet us, and... More

I recently spent two nights at the Alert Bay Lodge - it was warm and inviting with it's comfortable great room that had cozy furniture in small conversation groupings - book lined walls and homey atmosphere.

This was a family trip and it blew us all away. The lodge is located along the water so the views any time of day were amazing. Both our rooms were clean and comfortable. The great room had it's own ambiance and relaxed atmosphere. Our hosts Jen and Jack were outstanding. They were both friendly and knowledgeable about the area.... More

I spent two nights at Alert Bay Lodge with my dog and two human friends. We loved the relaxed and homey ambiance and the comfortable feeling of the place. There's a large lounge area with comfortable furniture arranged in groupings for conversation. There are also chairs arranged for a more private, quiet time. And lots of books. Our room had... More

If you've ever watched Northern Exposure, Alert Bay will remind you of Cicely, Alaska. Complete with the chef at Alert Bay Lodge. What a terrific meal. There are only two tables though, so you will need to book in advance.

We had a fabulous 3 nights here. Alert Bay has the vistas, the eagles, the sunsets and the culture and more! People are super friendly. And the Lodge....it was great! Very clean, comfortable and hospitable. Jack and Jen are wonderful hosts and, be assured, this is the very best food on the island! Scrumptious!
