"Our group of 4 couples had a good time at the Ruby Lake Resort. The staff were friendly, food at the restaurant was delicious, cabin was dated and not super clean but it was spacious and had all the amenities we needed. One of the highlights was the 2 hour canoe trip around the lake, thanks to the complimentary rental included with our package."

Why We Love This Hotel

  • The resort has a network of walking trails, a picnic area and bird sanctuary
  • The lagoon doubles as a wildlife sanctuary for painted turtles, otters and beavers
  • Tents are elevated on wooden platforms with full beds and fireplaces
  • Cottages are individually designed; some have fireplaces or full kitchens
  • The on-site restaurant serves dishes using ingredients from the resort’s garden


British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast “has an independent, island-like mentality that belies the fact it's just a short hop […] from Metro Vancouver” (Lonely Planet). Add on the fact that it’s “the province's most celebrated year-round recreation center” and “the scenery is spectacular,” it’s a tantalizing haven for those looking for an easy getaway (Frommer’s).

Within this renowned region and sprawled over 80 acres on the edge of Ruby Lake, this expansive resort is an outdoor sanctuary. Though accommodations are amidst a rustic setting, guests will appreciate the myriad of amenities -- in addition to creature comforts like feather duvets, there’s an outdoor amphitheatre, private dock and beach, onsite canoe, row boat, and stand up paddle-board rentals, as well as lakeside yoga classes, swimming, hiking and cycling trails. Be sure to leave time to explore the nearby Skookumchuck Narrows saltwater rapids and picturesque Princess Louisa Inlet.

The on-site Italian restaurant, linked by a floating foot bridge over the lagoon, creates dishes using as much local produce as possible including farm-to-table goods grown right on site. Guests can enjoy menu standouts like fresh steelhead trout from Lois Lake Powell River and spaghetti with homemade pesto and vegetables from the resort’s own garden.

being in a beautiful setting & sleeping in the huts, loved all the wood carvings from old trees and driftwood. Staff were very friendly and funny.

Didn't realize there was a community kitchen, would be nice to have it listed in the ad so people are aware you can bring food from home and use the facilities. Nice to talk to people from other parts of the world.
