On our trip to Vancouver Island we stayed at the Brentwood Bay lodge & Spa. This lodge is set on the coast of Brentwood bay, has a spa, fine dining, sushi bar and a pub. During the spring, summer and fall you can do kayaking and scuba diving from the Lodge. It is a very nice piece of architecture with the room we were in being spacious and having an excellent bathroom with seperate shower and large 2 person jet tub. Why can't our apartment in Seattle be like this.
My wife got a great deal on our room, because it is off season currently. But who cares, the area is still lovely to visit, the room is outstanding and it is a lot cheaper.
I had fun talking to the sushi chef, especially on a slower night when he had time to actually talk back. He was able to make us some special dishes, which were beautifully made and delicious too.
If you get the chance I highly recommend the Brentwood Bay Lodge and Spa.
