The Lodge

Located in the rugged wilderness of the Central Coast of BC, Duncanby Lodge has all the comforts and conveniences you’d expect to find at a five star resort, while surrounded by the natural beauty of Rivers Inlet. All of the cabins and buildings are land based, just steps away from the dock and fishing grounds.

Every year during the off season improvements are made to the Lodge. Some of the recent upgrades are a new office and storage area, a new helicopter float for the “Hummingbird” and electrical upgrades to the dock. The next major project will be a new restaurant and lounge redesign which is scheduled to be completed for the 2022 Season.
