“Good but........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2004

Great place, good food but.......
The rooms are quite a bit smaller than in other places we stayed in Canada this summer, consequently we could often smell the smokers on the next balcony, no TV in the room, we could also hear the newly weds next door! Not fantastic for privacy.

We visited Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge on Quadra Island, BC with our three children, aged 11, 8 and almost 2. We rented a cottage fronting Discovery Passage, a main thoroughfare for all kinds of seacraft and cruise ships heading to Alaska. The main lodge is very lovely - designed to look like a Pacific Coast native Indian long house. The property includes 1100 forested acres and is owned by the Cape Mudge Band. Everything is very well maintained, including the cottages. The meals at the dining lounge were excellent.
I think this place is better suited to couples looking for a romantic getaway, or perhaps families with no toddlers. While our older children enjoyed exploring the rocky shoreline in front of our cottage, they could not really go for a swim since the current is too strong, and there is no pool at the lodge - just an outdoor hot tub. Quadra Island itself is a very quiet place and there are no sandy beaches. However, if you are into canoeing, kayaking or hiking you should definitely check this place out. (Sandy beaches can be found on another island a short ferry ride away.)
I did enjoy quiet evenings after the kids went to bed, reading by our fireplace and watching the huge Alaskan cruise ships sail by.
One disappointment was our discovery that the nearby Cape Mudge Museum has been closed for renovations for a very long time with no foreseeable re-opening date planned.

Twa-Kwa-Luten Lodge is such a great facility that I almost hate to share it. Its location on Quadra Island removes it from the touristy Campbell River area as one must ferry across Discovery Passage in order to reach it. This small accommodation has only 29 guest rooms all featuring ocean views and many having private patios or sundecks facing the passage. The dining room serves a variety of gourmet west coast cuisine just off the main lodge entrance. The rustic long house design and first people artwork throughout adds to the ambience. Four cottages with kitchenettes, fireplaces, and private verandas are also available.
Though somewhat removed from the main lodge, they share the wonderful views of the passage. Activities including whale watching, scuba-diving, kayaking, and golf can be arranged at the lodge.
