The Lodge


Home of the Grizzly Bears! The historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, set on 60 acres of private land within the vast wilderness of British Columbia's largest provincial park and the Great Bear Rainforest, is the ideal setting for your wilderness adventures. Originally built in 1931 as a hunting and fishing resort, today the lodge accommodates those seeking out a more eco-friendly adventure as well as a relaxing refuge from the pressures of modern life.

The surrounding environment is stunning. Rising above the valley floor are the majestic Coast Mountains, to the west is the largest fjord system in the Americas, and to the east the high Chilcotin Plateau. It is a bio-diverse and spectacular wilderness, home to the totemic wildlife of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Even though our location is deep within the wilds of British Columbia, we are only a 70 minute flight from Vancouver, making us one of the most easily accessible wilderness lodges in Canada! The property consists of the main lodge building, as well as 10 chalets, nestled on the forest's edge.

In addition to amazing wilderness experiences, our team aim to exceed your expectations. Perhaps this is one of the reasons we are consistent winners of TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence and the Traveller’s Choice award as part of their Top 25 Small Hotels (Canada). We are also honoured to have CNN Travel call Tweedsmuir Park Lodge one of ‘British Columbia's best luxury lodges’!

We look forward to welcoming you to Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, a founding member of The Magnificent 7 – Luxury Wilderness Lodges of Canada.

Lodge History

Stooick has been shortened to Stuie, and this is now the location of Canada’s historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, one of the first lodges on the West Coast of Canada. The site was well chosen and to this day people frequently remark on how peaceful and well rested they feel after a couple days in the area.
