It is a very natural and beautiful setting. Top marks!!!!! Some friends and I decided to go on an overnight trip up the Sunshine Coast about two weeks before the August long weekend.
Like any long weekend in August, everything gets booked up weeks in advance. Plus, we were a group of 10 so our choice of accomodations was pretty limited. I give this resort a try; cabins are full but the tents are available. I proceed to make a booking for the family tent with 2 bunk beds and 3 safari tents. I was told that there were no minimum nights for the stay for the tents. Went ahead and gave my information, including my credit card number, to hold my reservation.
I wanted to cancel at that point, because I find this totally unfair especially AFTER they had verbally confirmed my reservation and taken down my credit card information. But my friends still wanted to stay there so I call them back and tell them that we agree to the new amount. Again, Jonathan tells me that he has to check with Giorgio and that he will phone me back. They never did. I phone back 2 days later to ask about the status of my reservation.

Again I speak to Jonathan, who feigns ignorance of the situation Oh, I thought Giorgio had gotten back to you! He then goes on to tell me that if Giorgio didn't return my call then it means we don't have a reservation. The nerve! Frankly, I'm concerned about this Giorgio who, I'm told, is the proprietor guy's business practices. If this is how he treats would-be guests, jacking up the price, insisting we stay 2 nights AND THEN not returning a phone call to confirm our reservation Buyer beware!
My friends and I were reminicing about what a wonderful Easter weekend we had up at Ruby Lake Resort. We have told all our freinds about this gem and felt that maybe we should share our experiences with you all as well.
The little piece of heaven is just 3 hours from downtown Vancouver and just the thing to do when you need a change of scenery. The first glimpse of Ruby Lake as you come around the last bend of the highway is breathtaking, especialy as the sun sets. Upon arriving,we were welcomed warmly by the efficiant staff, given our cabin keys and advised that our dinner reservations were for 7pm but that if need be we could arrive even as late as 8pm.
This suited us, as we all wanted a quick shower and to relax with a pre dinner drink in the gazebo that overlooks the lagoon. The rooms are located across the lagoon in 5 comfortable, clean double unit cabins, some with full kitchens, all have one or more large comfortable beds with fresh clean bed linens and large soft fluffy towels in the small but emaculate bathrooms.
We always bring snacks and drinks with us, so we make sure that we reserve at least one of the cabins with the kitchenette and as always the place was clean and fresh. Glasses, plates and cutlery, as well as the kitchen table, floor and carpets were spotless. As we settled in for our long weekend stay the discusion became very annimated, helped along by a good bottle of Pinot, wondering what to have for dinner?
Would or wouln't we make time for massages and did we really need to make the hike to Skukumchuk Rapids As we've all been to Ruby Lake on numerous occasions and have had many memorable meals, we decided to wait and see what Aldo, the chef, would suggest for our meals and the other decisions would be left to the following day From the time our little group sat down to the time we got up to say good night the evening was magical.
Service was fantastic, menus presented at seating, specials plesantly anounced and drink orders taken.
When our waitress ,Tannia, returned we advised that we had no idea as to what to order so could Aldo please decide for us and cook what ever he felt we would enjoy , we were leaving it in his capable hands Coffees won out.!!! Yes some of us did take that hike and some of us enjoyed being pampered with a massage by Brigit the resident masseuse. Ruby Lake Resort never ceases to amaze us, we have visited other resorts on the coast and elsewhere in the world, but this beautiful haven is next to none. Our "Ruby Lake Getaway Group" started with two and has increased over the years to eight to ten per visit.
We highly recomed this enchanting retreat to anyone looking for some time away from the hustle and stress of city life. The drive up Highway 1 in British Columbia is breathtaking. We loved every minute of it. Then we came around a corner to Ruby Lake Resort where we had booked a four-day stay for Easter week. It was much more than we could have ever hoped for.

There is a rustic and warm restaurant overlooking this beautiful lake, complete with it being a haven for all of the birds of that area. The Resort's rooms were bright, cheerful and very comfortable. When you open the drapes you can not experience more natural beauty. Then we went down to the restaurant to sample some of the best Northern Italian food we have ever had. The cook, Aldo, his brother, Giorgio, and their family grow many of the herbs and vegetables right there.
They also have such fresh seafood that it melts in your mouth.test.trailblazer.outdoorsy.co/54.php
We also tried some gorgonzola pasta with a wonderful red wine they recommended and we couldn't believe how good it was. We would recommend this place highly. Stock Image. Condition: Good Soft cover.
