Pitt River Lodge

Activities: Fishing, Nature, Photography, Old Growth Forests

At the Pitt River Lodge we believe in promoting a wilderness experience for ALL, for years to come. Despite being close to the largest city in Western Canada, the Pitt River has kept its wilderness qualities - 40 miles of river await... there are no crowds! Our boat departs regularly from the head of Pitt Lake, just outside Maple Ridge. After a 1 hour ride on the River Wind, a working commercial salmon boat, you are taken up to the riverside lodge. With big resident Bull, Cutthroat and Rainbow trout, the Pitt River offers year round fishing as good as anything you’ll find in British Columbia’s most remote wilderness rivers.

Our new 5000 square foot farmhouse style lodge plus four cabins are all the perfect place to experience the ultimate Angling Adventure! With a wrap around porch, cedar interior, hardwood floors, cedar burl bar, leather furniture and big screen tv, our lodge can assure you and your group can relax and unwind in comfort at the end of the day. Dining is family style at a huge rustic redwood cedar table, with good homestyle cooking, scrumptious desserts and homemade breads.

Our lodge is located on the edge of a great wilderness. During the fall salmon run, black bears and eagles can often be seen feeding on salmon along the rivers. Deer are plentiful and there are occasional sightings of mountain lions. The region is rich in bird life in season. The area is typical of a west-coast rain forest. At the head of the valley, giant old- growth trees can still be found. Two thirds of the way up the valley there is an accessible hot spring right next to the river with two pools for those who want to relax after fishing, hiking or mountain biking. The upper Pitt River valley offers great wilderness experiences - including native sites to explore.

Raven's Cove

Activities: Kayaking, Nature, Boating, Fishing, Hiking, Beachcombing

At the northern tip of the Lower Sunshine Coast near the Earl's Cove ferry terminal lies a hidden cove rich with marine and land life. A place of contrasts - a sunlit bay of glassy calm water in the long lazy days of summer, a protected harbour in fall's first rush of storms, a snowy refuge in winter months where waterfowl congregate in the crystalline waters of the cove. It is a special place that families, s and groups come to explore, rejuvenate, celebrate, and reconnect - all in a private and secluded cove that offers the illusion of remoteness only 2 1/2 hours of the city of Vancouver.

Ravens Cove offers a three-bedroom cottage perfect for couples or small families to share a vacation together. The main cottage has two queen beds and a single as well as two double sofa beds in the livingroom. All beds have their own comfy duvets. The rooms are attractively decorated and offer plenty of room for putting your things away to create that "home away from home" feeling. The cottage has 3 bathrooms (one is an ensuite). The cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen. The Crabshack is perfect for older children or teenagers, is a 6-bunk unit outside the cottage that offers lots of privacy and gives the adults some space of their own as well!

Ravens Cove has a spacious 50 foot cedar deck overlooking the calm beauty of the waterfront below... relax in one of the loungers, or sit and play a game of cards at the outdoor picnic table just steps from the ocean. Rental includes the use of a canoe and a 16' Harbercraft aluminum runabout with 30hp engine.
