Welcome to Soule Creek Lodge, Port Renfrew, B.C.
"On the Big Tree Trail" - Vancouver Sun & Calgary Herald
"Guests find seclusion, serenity and sophistication on the edge of a pristine wilderness." - EAT Magazine
Soule Creek Lodge is perched high on the San Juan Ridge with 360 degree panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Olympic Peninsula, Juan de Fuca Strait, West Coast Trail, San Juan Inlet and Coastal Mountains.
We have just completed our newest and largest yurt (Yurt of the Salish Sea) which can be booked online. Pictures should be on the website mid to late June. This unit has awesome views of San Juan Bay, the West Coast Trail, Olympic Peninsula and Straight of Juan De Fuca.
With 160 private acres bordering Provincial Park lands our view shows very few signs of civilization making it a great site to see wildlife viewing and get away from it all while only a 5 minute drive to “downtown” Port Renfrew.
We are just a two hour scenic drive from either Victoria along Hwy 14 or Nanaimo along the newly completed Pacific Rim Circle Route. Enjoy the scenery or take a hike along the way.
"The lodge is quiet, a place to escape from the frantic pace of 21st century life. We only wish we could have planned for another day and night there." -
While at the lodge guests will enjoy ocean view accommodation in our Lodge Suites, Yurts or Cabin complimented by a wonderful hot breakfast (included with your stay). With advance notice guests may join us for our three course dinner using many Vancouver Island ingredients, fresh local salmon, halibut and freshly grown local vegetables in season. Dinner is prepared by Chef/Owners Tim and Jon Cash. The brothers are both experienced internationally and use the finest ingredients when preparing their meals, from organic produce to hand foraged local mushrooms.

Many day trails are close at hand to explore local forests, lakes and beaches. Some of the largest trees in the world are just a short drive away. Visit Botanical Beach at low tide and explore the tidal pools. Eco tours and Kayak rentals are available. Come discover where the black bears, bald eagles, Roosevelt elk, and other wildlife call home. Learn more about local attractions and activities here.
