SunwolfJust 30 miles south of Whistler, where the Cheakamus meets the Cheekye, Sunwolf is a restored fishing lodge that retains the charm of its midcentury origins without sacrificing comfort. The family-owned-and-operated property features 12 pet-friendly cabins with everything you might expect from a modern riverside retreat—en-suite bathrooms, hardwood floors, fireplaces—minus Wi-Fi. Warmer months bring a summer-camp vibe, with lawn games, volleyball, and fire-pit gatherings, plus white-water excursions down the Elaho River organized with the Squamish Rafting Company; during winter, eagle-watching float trips end just a short walk from the lodge. If you're looking for a quick fuel-up, don't miss breakfast at Fergie’s, the lodge's riverfront restaurant, which has become a popular year-round stop-off on the Sea to Sky Highway between Vancouver and Whistler for its poached-egg veggie bowl and house-smoked salmon burger.
