Had the best three day visit to Eagle Nook, the weather was great, the fishing was good, the food was incredible, the staff was friendly and totally wonderful, and the rooms were first class all the way.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great here!

Drive to Uculet, B.C. to meet Eagle Nook's catamaran for a safe comfortable 1 hour 20 minute ride through Barkley Sound and the scenic Broken Islands group to the gorgeous sheltered bay that hides Eagle Nook Resort and Spa. This is a beautiful, well maintained property hidden away in the already beautiful scenery of the rugged B.C. west coast. We were greeted by the manager's Patrick and Anouk Braspenning and given a brief orientation of what happens while at the resort. Safety, staff introductions, and meal times all covered. We were shown to our large rooms to refresh and get settled in. King sized bed, love seat and chair, writing table, WiFi internet in your room. No cell phone service in this remote location.
Amenities include: library, computer, chess and checkers, pool table, card table, hot tub, board games, horse shoe pits,and a bar.
There is a marina to tie up to with your own boat that will also accomodate a float plane. Helicopter landing pad is located right in front of the main door.
The dining room overlooks a sheltered bay from which we watched eagles and seals fishing. There has been whales in here also. A black bear showed up during one evening dinner, but maintained a healthy distance away as it foraged for berries and grass.
Dinners were beautifully presented, 4 courses, served with the flair and extravagance of any 5 star hotel in the big city. Chef's special, soup or salad appetizers, choices of 3 main dishes and desserts. Too bad we got full so soon. We chose the house wines that matched up with the meals and found them excellent.
Breakfast and lunches were also served with the same flair as our main dinner meal. The chef and the maitre'd were on top of their choices and very caring for their food and guests.
I, of course, used the wrong fork and knife almost evertime.
There are many activities to choose from during your stay including fishing, wildlife watching cruises, hiking, beachcombing, bird watching and my favorite, photography. There is also an in house masseuse and spa treatments available that I did not use.
The king sized bed was very soft and inviting. Down duvet topped it off nicely. Pillows were perfect for me and I hated to leave this bed.
I enjoyed this trip into luxurious wildeness very much. Would like to do again one day.

This resort is an under appreciated jewel on the west coast! Our journey to Eagle Nook started when we left Ucluelet aboard their comfy resort shuttle. After an hour of cruising through the beautiful pacific rim islands and taking photos of numerous Hump Back Whales we arrived at the resort just in time for dinner. From the first dinner to the final breakfast nothing was over looked from the kitchen to the guest. The staff and food are all superb! Every room in the resort has a stunning ocean view which you can enjoy while nestled into a warm down bed with your loved one. During the day the fishing, kayaking and hiking were absolutely fantastic! We were sad to leave and will certainly be heading back.

Room Tip: The rooms in the resort are virtually the same.

We were very pleased with the service, ambiance, location and overall resort. They pay attention to all the details and treat everyone first class. The fishing was excellent and the dock facilties are well suited for boats of almost any size as well as seaplanes. We accessed the resort with our deHavilland Beaver and it is an ideal resort for seaplanes.

Park your plane or boat right in front of the lodge. Fabulous food and service. I will return for a few days in July of 2011.

You want quiet? This is it.

My wife and I discovered Eagle Nook Resort & Spa while cruising in Barkley Sound B.C. four years ago. We were completely enchanted by this very special hideaway. Since then we have made a point of returning at least once every season. It is one of our favorite places anywhere. Beautiful, pristine, majestic, and eloquent, Eagle Nook is just terrific. Don't pass on any opportunity to visit this very special place.

With a maximum of 50 or so guests when full you are always going to be well looked after by the team at Eagle Nook. The location is enchanting and very remote with a 1 hour boat transfer to get you through from Ucluelet and the Broken Islands to the resort.
We opted for a 3 day 4 night package of activities and full board. Day one we hiked a trail from the hotel through the surrounding temperate rain forest. and then had a practise kayak session. Day 2 was sea kayaking with a very knowlegable and likeable instructor/guide. With just one other couple we paddled through the tranquil and enchanting waters of the islands stopping for lunch on a deserted beach. Day 3 the whale watching boat trip was a highlight if a bit bumpy. This is not a cheap option but it is a very special one.
