All guests have access to Cedar Coast’s many facilities, including the shower house, shoreline deck, hot tub, gardens and the main lodge. Inside the lodge you will find the great room, library, classroom, field science lab, bathrooms and the multi-purpose room– where you can play basketball, volleyball, badminton, foursquare, and practice yoga.
The Great room is located in the main lodge and is the central hub for gathering, dining and warming up on the couches by the fire. Lofty ceilings and abundant skylights give the Great Room an open airy feel. If you’re looking for a cozier spot head upstairs to the library and living room.
The lodge library is a place to study and relax. In addition to an array of fiction and non-fiction books, the library is equipped with a variety of ecology field guide books that are available for guest use.
We have a large Multi-Purpose room where guests can enjoy games of half-court basketball, volleyball, badminton and four-square. On rainy days yoga and movement activities move into the comfort of the MPR with its ocean views and heated floors.
The upstairs living room is a cozy spot to curl up with a book, play a board game, or just relax.
A breathtaking space with a hot tub, high-tide swimming access, and ample space to relax, gather, move, and soak in the expansive ocean and mountain landscape. Can comfortably accommodate up to 100 people at a time.
The shower house is located directly adjacent to the main lodge building and has four separate showers with private change rooms and four sinks for hand washing, teeth brushing etc.
We encourage guests to use our natural, biodegradable soaps and conditioners supplied by our neighbours at Sea Wench Naturals. Hot water is supplied from the wood fired boiler in the main building, with propane heat as a backup.
We have a small, but productive garden surrounding the lodge. This year it is producing kale, arugula, garlic, onions, potatoes, squash and beans! It is a growing communal space where we strive to supply as much as our own food as possible.
We have six stand up paddle boards and 7 kayaks available for guest use. We have 4 single kayaks and 3 double kayaks.
All kayak and paddle board groups must be accompanied by a kayak guide with a current certification.
All visitors must abide by the Cedar Coast Risk Management Plan if they wish to participate in any water sports. Life jackets must be worn at all times while on the water.
