Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Marilyn,

Our family had a wonderful time, and are already talking about staying at the Lodge again next year. A special thank you for the ping pong table, which provided hours of entertainment. The commercial kitchen was also great, and of course the main gathering space with the beautiful fireplace was wonderful.

The only maintenance item I'm aware of was that one of the black chairs at the smaller dining table had a loose front leg, which seemed like it might give out if someone sat on it at the wrong angle, or a little too abruptly. Otherwise everything worked well.

Thanks again,

Nov 2015

Amazing Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of 5 families including 9 kids. This place was way more than enough space. The cabin itself is beautiful and perfectly clean. The commercial dishwasher was amazing for a quick cleanup after meals. The kitchen has pretty much everything you might need and the bar area was great to keep the drink making out of the kitchen. This was my second time staying here and I would not hesitate to recommend this place for any large groups.

Huge! Beautiful! Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Riverside Lodge was the perfect place for our recent annual friend trip. Vast is an understatement when it comes to the lodge. There were beds for everyone to sleep in and the beautiful table sat all 23 of us! The setting is so pretty too that it didn’t even matter it was cloudy and rainy all weekend. The large wood burning fireplace kept us nice and warm! This is a perfect place for large groups and I would highly recommend Riverside Lodge to anyone!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Our family rented the Riverside Lodge for one week to host a family reunion. When we arrived we found it a pleasant surprise. It was mostly exactly as advertised, a large country home setting. It suited a happy family reunion perfectly. We did, however, find that the kitchen needed some updating. The ovens were rusty and one didn't work, also the dishwasher was a bit of a problem. It would have been better if we could have used ALL the appliances on site. No matter, it worked for our crowd for the most part. The rental ladies, Marilyn and Joanne, were very helpful. All in all, it makes for a good place for any occasion hosting a moderately large group of people. Being centrely located on Vancouver Island was also a plus.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the constructive feedback. We strive for continual improvement so that return guests can continue to enjoy the Riverside year after year, and in that regard the dishwasher has been promptly tended to. For clarification the ovens are Vulcan Professional Bakers series (non convection). The exterior are high polished stainless steel with a very large stainless (polished and not rusted) flat top with 6 adjacent cooking elements. There are two ovens which are true bakers ovens with stainless racks (not rusted). One is the oven and the second is a warming oven (used more for storage). With the years of use the bottom of the oven appears rusted and its surface is very worn because of the nature of its material and discoloration due to high heat and spills over time. While the oven is by no means new, we thought it would be important for readers to know the entire context of their condition and the kind of ovens they are. Thanks again from the Riverside.
