We stayed at the Wisteria B&B's Studio 1, which was a cheery orange bedroom with a full kitchen and bathroom. The studio was hidden behind a grove of trees with its own private patio. It felt like we were staying in a private house as the studio had its own entrance - a sliding glass door overlooking the patio. Because it was a long weekend in high season, we paid the premium price for staying here - $170 per night!
They have a variety of room types: 6 bed and breakfast rooms, 2 studio rooms, and a garden cottage. As a result, there can be a lot of people staying here at once. Breakfast is delicious and is served in a communal dining room where there are 3 large tables. Beverly, one of the hosts, used to be a pastry chef at a Westin Hotel in Manhattan, New York, so you know you're in for tasty treats! While there's no real view of the water or of scenic vistas, you're located in a quiet residential area which has a relatively large garden area. Sometimes their pets (dogs and cats) roam around the garden and pay visits to the guests!
The Ruckle family owned the land around beaver point for decdes but decided to donate it to the state of British Columbia and make it a park for the public.
There is a campground there and it's a primitive campground with few facilities, but the most amazing setting you have ever seen.
If you are lucky you might even see killerwhales playing in the bay.
The worlds best setting for a campsite.
Head to the Tourist Info centre and get a handout on all the campgrounds on the Island. We drove and examined them all before settling on Lakeside Gardens Resort (see my individual tip on this choice).
Cedar Beach Resort - best for families; pets welcome; treed, lakeside; kind of dark; all amenities inc. fire, showers, pool, hot tub, boat rentals, etc.
Garden Fair Campground - Tiny, close to town; treed; portable toilet not many amenities
Lakeside Gardens Resort - families, couples, pets, lake setting, shared toilets, also rent "cabanas" and cabins. Boat rentals.
Ruckle Provincial Park - forest setting; rustic west coast; 78 sites.
I loved this place. It is very secluded, clean, and reasonably priced. Please note that since it is so secluded, the boathouse (where we stayed) required a walk through some woods to get to the front door. While it only took about 30 seconds to walk from the parking spot, it might not be for someone who doesn't like things like that! However, the view is so worth it!!
This place has two different places to stay - the boathouse which sleeps 2 (or 2 adults and small child) and the larger cabin. The boathouse is right on the water, while the cabin is further back. Be prepared for the sulphur-smelling water! Both have full kitchens, bathrooms, wood stove, electricity, etc....it is NOT camping! There is also plenty of hiking right on your doorstep, wildlife in the water and on land to see, and an eco-reserve nearby.
This is the best campground on the Island. It is a private campground located on St. Mary's Lake. You can camp in one of the approx. 8 campsites ($20-25), rent one of the approx. 8 cabanas ($60-70)or rent one of the cabins approx. 2 ($100-125). Any of these choices are great. The property is absolutely gorgeous; there are large willow trees and beautiful gardens. Row boats, paddle boats, canoes are all for rent on an honour system ($10/hr); lifejackets provided. Firewood for sale $4. Small sandy beach. We stayed in a cabana which was great. You get a small cabin with a double bunk bed, 2 small couches (kids could sleep on these), small kitchen table, small fridget, dishes, bedding etc. and an outdoor cooking area. (See photos for lots of pictures of cabana and the property). Check in 3pm; check out 11am.
This is a sign I carved for one brothers restaurant & Inn on Lasqueti island, you won't find this sign there anymore, as this building has changed businesses.
But if you click open the link, you will be given choices for the gulf islands and where to stay etc.
Like all of the gulf islands, Lasquite is beautiful. But not on the usual tourist destination. After my sister in law learned that I was posting info on her island, she was obviously not too happy, so I've removed it. (some people are very private)
Click open the link and you will discover islands such as Saltspring, Mayne, Pender (north & south), Galiano, etc...
