Pender Island is one of BC’s laidback, picturesque southern Gulf Islands.
Still retaining a bucolic rural feel with its historic farms and port communities, Pender offers lovely waterfront parks, rolling countryside perfect for cycling, a lively arts scene, and a full slate of water activities.
Factor in good dining, several spas, and plentiful accommodations (ranging from affordable to deluxe), and it’s no wonder this island gem is popular with stressed out urbanites. “To see the beauty in the air, the ocean and on land,” says Pender photographer Jacquie MacDonald, “take a few quiet seconds to let it all sink in.”
Pender is referred to in the singular by its Chamber of Commerce even though the island was separated into northern and southern halves in 1903. With construction of the Panama Canal a hot topic in the US, islanders petitioned to improve local navigation by having a humble canal of their own dug across a narrow neck of land dividing Bedwell and Port Browning harbours.
Breathtaking place to stay!
The spectacular views alone are worth the price. Being able to sip a morning coffee on the back deck while looking over the gulf islands and water down below was simply an indulgence.
Out of all the amazing views
that Pender Island has to offer, the view from this place is the best I have seen. It is such a relaxing place to stay. The private suites are very nice. The entire place is well-kept.
The most amazing 360 view
you’ll get... gorgeous private and shared patio space overlooking the water and islands. Quiet and peaceful. Breakfast and snack foods were plentiful and the beds and pillows were very comfortable.
The hosts very friendly and helpful
The view from both the front and back decks are amazing. It is a quiet and peaceful place to stay. The bed was very comfortable. We recommend this as a lovely get away spot.
