We (family of four, with two daughters aged 10 and 12) spend a memorable week in July 2008 at the desolation resort. We stayed at Chalet 6 - a two story a-frame structure with a hot tub, situated high above the Okeover inlet of BC's desolation sound.
The place is clean and cozy, the kids loved the upstairs bedroom. Bathrooms are very small and dark. You have to go to Lund to get supplies in the general story (the ony story), or go to the Laughing Oyster restaurant around the corner, which is pretty good and has an amazing view.
We spent the day kayaking, swimming, boating, sunbathing or exploring Lund. Once the sun settles, the hot tub provided warmth, and the barbeque was fired up.
In summary - a unique place - if you like the outdoors, you'll love it!
