“Fabulous fishing vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Eagle Nook was a fantastic place for a company fishing trip. We have tried several different options over the years and and finally found the perfect fit. Spectacular property, well appointed and very comfortable logde with great meals and a wonderful professional staff. The fishing guides are top notch fisherman, boat handlers, guides and friends that make you feel welcome in their group.

This resort is set in a breathtaking cove. Natural beauty surrounds the lodge. There are so many activities its hard to choose. Fishing, kayaking, ecotour, hiking, or just staring out at the mountains and sea. Wildlife is everywhere! Sea lions, whales, eagles, bears and seals! The food is five star. A menu to choose from that has variety to amaze everyone. For those not wanting to wander out the spa is a relaxing alternative. (I loved the aromatherapy massage). And there are places to curl up and read your book. We had a happy hour outside by the fire pit. Fresh oysters on the grill! This was our first visit and we really need to go back. Just not enough time to doit all! As others have said the staff is gracious, attentive and professional. Eagle Nook did not miss a beat.

Eagle Nook staff and "can do" attitude is top flight. They will do anything to make your stay memorable. 5am lattes to 5pm cocktails, with great fishing and eagle watching in between. The food was outstanding; I asked the chef to cook the salmon that I had just caught. It was on the menu for our table that night. Loved every experience. Thanks for a great vacation!

If you love the outdoors, like to catch salmon, enjoy being on a boat, marvel at whales sounding in the distance and an eagle presiding over the lodge this is the place for you. The staff is exceptional and soon feel like family, the food is tasty, well prepared and nicely presented, the accommodations are warm and inviting. Your fish will be vacuum packed and frozen immediately upon being offloaded from the guide boat. Guides are experienced, know how to find fish and are friendly. A wonderful experience.

I normally dont write reviews or do surveys but I would be remiss if I didnt mention EAGLE NOOK RESORT.I have stayed and fished at many BC resorts over 55 years and have always enjoyed them but my three day stay at EAGLE NOOK was the best. You can see by the pictures that the place is beautiful but I was so impresssed with the staff. The people are the best and as
nice and caring as you could find anywhere. They made a great trip even better

How many vacation spots has one been where the service is so perfect that one remembers all the names of the staff? Thanks to manager Glenn, guide Ky, then Ashley,Nikki,Ericka,Martha, and Rachel. My son and I stayed for two days of fishing, caught salmon and halibut, the salmon was prepared fresh for us that night while we dined, overlooking the Pacific while sipping fine wine. Kayaking, canoeing, hiking, eagle watching, whale watching, sleeping under the canopy of God's glorious creation, my what an experience. If I had to nitpick, it is tough to get there and the room furniture could use updating. But all in all well worth the price and the time. We will be life time customers. Thanks Eagle Nook!

Room Tip: Since both sides of the lodge face water, one can't go wrong.

We just finished a 3 day 2 night stay here at this incredible resort. We arrived to a really nicely prepared dinner. Nothing heavy, just delicate greens and everything made with a gourmet chief's touch. My wife's fish dish was to die for.

The next day we were off for kyaking all morning. What a place for it! We saw eagles, orcas, sea lions and otters on our paddle out to Broken Islands. All the gear including safety vests and radios were top notch and provided by the resort.

We went fishing in the afternoon and caught 3- 20 plus pound salmons which were flash frozen for our trip home. Because the resort is virtually in the Barkley Sound park, the boat ride to go fishing was a whole 10 minutes.

Another great dinner followed with relaxing by an outside fire late into the evening. Next morning it was up to go hiking with views of the water at every turn of the trail.

The boat ride back to Tofino Airport has me reflecting on what a truly special place Eagle Nook Resort is. The staff was uniformily gracious and helpful. The location is just right for a vacation trip that is truly out of the ballpark!

I have no affiliation with anyone related to this resort and had never been here before, nor was I compensated in any way for writing this review.
