Plato Island Resort & Marina
Reviewed July 20, 2014

My partner and I were fortunate enough to be treated to a spectacular weekend at Plato Island Resort; sleeping in their “White Cloud” tent. Our booking included a two-night stay with breakfast and dinner.

Although we did expect a degree of comfort beyond a basic tent, we did not expect the degree of luxury offered by “White Cloud”.

A very spacious canvas tent the size of a small cabin, with an attached tiled bathroom, complete with hot shower. “Stunning” does not quite describe it.

From the loving decorations, to the super-comfortable mattress, replete with duvet and the stupendous lake view from the attached deck, “tent” is a complete misnomer.

The owners, Marita and Kyle, were most welcoming; Marita even going to the trouble of emailing us before arrival to inquire as to our meal wishes.

Marita’s cooking skills were such that we wished we could stay longer; if only for the delicious meals. Meal presentation ranked up there with high-end restaurants.

As the restaurant is not licensed, we brought our own wine. Works for us :)

We highly recommend a stay at Plato Island Resort and would definitely recommend "White Cloud" for those looking for the ultimate "tent" experience; without having to worry about setting up a tent and having to bring camping gear.

Thanks Marita and Kyle!
Bernd and Tina

We found Plato Island Resort through friends' recommendation. We were impressed with the variety of accommodation offered - cabins, RV sites, and very unique luxurious (royalty-like...) tents with ensuite bathrooms. The accommodation was very clean and well looked after. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We could cook our own meals in the cabin or order from the resort's cafe. Marita's cooking was delicious. Make sure you try her Schnitzel! Plato Island Resort is also a kids and dogs friendly place. I would highly recommend it for family vacation. As far as we know, Quesnel Lake is the biggest fjord lake in the world. The view is stunningly beautiful and the fishing trumps any other smaller lake. It was closed for Winter but we look forward to our next visit some time this year.
