How does one begin to put down on paper a review of a place when there are no words adequate to convey what one finds there? I could list 100 adjectives yet this would still be entirely insufficient to capture what you will experience on a visit to Clayoquot Wilderness Resort. After struggling with this over the past couple of...

Ah Julie G you are simply amazing! Our first "Over the Top" experience and it was indeed "absolutely magical"! For those reading this that haven't heard, we have introduced a mountain top camp known as "Over the Top" that includes all the creature comforts that one would find in camp. Also included is your own personal chef, guide, gourmet meals...

Have you ever stayed at a resort that we so incredible - so deeply satisfying and enjoyable - that you almost don't want want to talk about it to friends, for fear that future reservations will be challenging to secure? Clayoquot is such a place; so good I want to keep it quiet. Despite this urge, I feel even more...

This was our 3rd visit in 5 years and we had booked for 12 days/11nights (1st time 4 days - 2nd time 7 days) so we were questioning whether we could last this long in this activity heaven !! But sure enough, yet again, John and the crew at Clayoquot over-delivered. We all (family of 5 with 17, 14 yr...

How can we convey the magic of Clayoquot Wilderness Resort? We want to encourage all those who are considering a trip to this one-of-a-kind resort – it is a must! From the moment the seaplane circles over the clear waters of Bedwell Sound, you know you have been transported to an otherworldly place. After the warmest, most personal greeting you...

We visited Clayoquot in the beginning of July and our only regret is we stayed for 4 nights and not 7. We were coming from the Four Seasons in whistler and have never "glamped" before so we were slightly afraid we would be missing the comforts of the Four Seasons (which we loved)-my husband even asked me if we could...

We can't thank our guests enough for reviews like this one! WOW is all I can say and THANK YOU ChicagoLambeau!!

Words could never discribe this incrediable relaxing magical place. It really is the perfect family vacation, everyone is able to schedule their individual activates each day while discussing the options at dinner the night before. Food.... let's just say, as everyone knows I'm a food snob- every meal is off the charts while having a fantastic wine list. Sleeping.... Best...

We spent four days at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort three weeks ago, and have NOT stopped thinking about it and raving about it every single day since our return. The most noticeable difference between this and other five star experiences is the heart and soul that John and Adele (the proprietors) have put into every aspect of the resort. From the...

This trip was truly magical, from the first hello to our last goodbye everything was handled with the utmost care and attention to detail. When we landed we were picked up with horses and upon arrival to Clayoquot Resort a welcome drink was the start of this dreamlike vacation. The tents are kept in sparkling condition and most importantly the...

This is our second visit and it was better than the first time. We love the ensuite! The activity guides were great, we tried river kayaking, hiking , horseback riding, fishing, shooting, bear watching! Great fun for our whole family. The food at the cookhouse was very good and all the stuff were attentive and friendly.

We returned last night from Clayoquot, and have to say it was the best vacation we have ever taken, period. The kids had a blast and we can't wait to return.
