“paradise found”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

What a great lodge in such a magnificent valley!
We have travelled 3 weeks in British Columbia, Alberta and Washington state, USA.
Eagle Lodge is the best hotel we have stayed at....ever. The rates for the rooms are very affordable. Just check on their website to make an opinion.
The lodge is maintained to perfection, the location is overwhelmingly relaxing, the scenery around is pristine.
The owners are just marvellous, very friendly, very knowledgeable of the area and the people. Plenty of great advices, always extremely helpful. You can even have a wonderful dinner cooked just for you; just give a 24 hour notice.
We enjoyed very much our room a 100%. THe quality of sleep is backed with a great bed and nights so quiet! We just felt at home.
All i can say is that we have been heartbroken to leave such a biautiful place: the lodge and the owners, the valley and its people.
So i would defenitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Bella Coola.
You can also park your RV, set up your tent in the green prairie.
You can relax around a fire pit for a very small price.
Eagle Lodge is the perfect spot to stay and feel like you are in paradise.
Have a good stay everyone!

Room Tip: Jim's room is great, the lodge's rooms are all great

Loved it from the second we walked in. Great views, rooms, amenities and of course staff. Would I go back? Yes in a heartbeat. Would I recommend to my friends? Absolutely.

You've answered a question I always have in the back of my mind. Does the marketing of the lodge accurately depict the reality? If you walked in and were disappointed, I'd know we didn't hit the mark. If you walked in and were impressed, we did it right! Thank you!!!

The proprietors and staff were extremely friendly and accomodating. They truely went out of their way to accomodate. My room was clean and quiet. The shower was shared with another guest and was a bit cramped but clean and functional. Internet was a bit slow but much improved over previous stays. The food was excellent - home cooking every night with a diverse menu.

Thank you for the warm review!

For those of you wondering about the "shared bath" - the winter of 2010/11 brought road repair crews to the Valley to work on the flood impacted portions of Highway 20. We opened every available room to house them and had the pleasure of accommodating most of them for months.

The room this guest is talking about was the small second bedroom in the staff suite that we used for those coming for shorter stays. All guests assigned to this room are informed of the choice when they make their reservation in case they would rather book elsewhere. It is gratifying to note that, without exception, the regulars have said they would rather stay in that room that anywhere else in the Valley!

Eagle Lodge is a well placed inexpensive location to explore the natural beauty and delights of the Bella Coola valley. Friendly and helpful staff and clean and well decorated rooms with en-suite facilites. Guest lounge is a comfortable social area with a wood burning stove, TV and a good selection of local guides and information. Self service buffet style continental breakfast offers good choices. Plenty of car parking space, superb mountain views. Also has a spacious RV/camping park area to the rear of the property.

This year's trip to Bella Coola was nothing short of spectacular. The Smart family was more than hospitable and my friend and I always felt as if we were right at home at Eagle Lodge. If you are looking for local insight ranging from finding that special bear viewing spot to accessing trailheads the Smart's will point you in the right direction. I would not hesitate to recommend Eagle Lodge to anyone looking to visit Bella Coola. This is the second year my friend and I have stayed at Eagle Lodge and we look forward to returning to Bella Coola and staying at the Eagle Lodge next summer.

I come back every year because I find I do my best writing here. It is very private and quiet. Exclusive. While here this time, the owners hosted a "Mid Summer's Night of Music" event. According to the owner, Rosemary, it was a casual small town gathering. I highly recommend this place to any professional needing to get away.
