About the location

Accommodation

A Luxurious Lakeside Wilderness Lodge After a long day of activities, a warm fire and a cold drink start to look pretty good. Now add a hot tub and a three-course meal. A single-malt whisky and a game of billiards. Perhaps a massage. Getting the idea? When we completely renovated this massive log lodge in 2010, we wanted to bring a sense of pampered elegance to this lakeside wilderness, without losing the rustic touches that let you know you’re a long way from downtown.

Location

In addition to a full service spa, an incredible dining experience and relaxing guest rooms, Tyax Lodge also boasts a lounge and bar with fireplace, a comfortable den, a full service ski shop with a technician available for any equipment needs (in winter), and a gift shop that features a range of high quality ski wear and accessories. The lodge offers complimentary WiFi throughout the building for guests bringing laptops or mobile devices, though connectivity may be limited.

Food

Locally Sourced, Impeccably Delivered British Columbia is blessed with some of the finest terroirs in the world. The pristine waters of the North Pacific provide us with fresh seafood of exceptional quality that we demand is sourced only in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.The interior of the province provides us with magnificent organic vegetables, stone fruit and produce. We use many foraged ingredients that are harvested daily by our culinary team within sight of the lodge.
