I have stayed at many lodges in British Columbia and Tweedsmuir is the best all around lodge. The accommodations are so comfy, and we loved the bathrooms and the fireplaces in the room. Also the property is incredible, with bears grazing on grass, a perfect wildlife watching platform, and a beautiful hot tub and steam room. The food is also world class, this place should be on everyone's Bucket List.
This is an amazing place to stay not just because the food, accommodation and location are all first rate but because the whole team of staff go to every effort to make this stay special. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone. The service and food far exceeded our expectations. The guides on our river drifts were not only knowledgeable but friendly and enjoyable company and the valley itself made every moment on the river special. In addition big thanks to Ellie who took us on our hikes for helping to show us even more of the beauty in the surrounding countryside. We learnt so much about the wildlife, the trees, and the First Nations people. We have memories that will last a lifetime and of course the special encounters with the bears above all. We saw so many every day - including the two occasions when they came to graze in the meadow near the lodges! This really was a holiday to remember - wish we could go back next year!
From the moment we arrived the warmth from the lodge, staff, guides, and ambience flooded over us. Food was excellent. And nothing was too much trouble, coffee, tea was hot and always available with cookies and snacks. Other travellers were happy and excited to share their adventures, we saw bears, eagles, birds in abundance. And the landscapes were magical, guides are knowledgeable and courteous. A great wild space.
