The expansive property features a central lodge building and 10 elegantly appointed chalets, all perched on the edge of the forest for maximum privacy and immersion in nature. As a certified Climate Positive establishment, Tweedsmuir Park Lodge has been lauded as one of “BC’s Best Luxury Lodges” by CNN Travel and proudly stands as 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.
