Overlooking Chesterman Beach, the Wickaninnish Inn, or “the Wick,” as locals call it, offers 75 cabinlike rooms with Adirondack-style furnishings. Amenities include a library stocked with board games and movies, a spa that offers West Coast–inspired treatments, and guided hikes to nearby tide pools every Saturday morning. Swing by the Henry Nolla Carving Shed on the beach, where local wood carvers⎯“Feather” George Yearsley, for one⎯craft wooden objects such as eagle feathers, dugout canoes, jewelry boxes, and First Nations masks.

I stayed here in September 2015 and absolutely loved it. Stayed in the Beach rooms (they also have rooms in the Point). What a treat to be tucked in the beautiful woods, on the beach, with such comforts, including great food, and so much to do. They provide bikes, wet weather gear, and just fantastic service. I will go back!
