Built in 1999, and formerly known as the Roots Lodge, this property was developed to give the feel of a 1920’s oceanfront fishing village nestled amidst the lush rain forest. Cedar walkways and paths are peppered throughout to connect each cottage and loft home.
The vision of the Roots Lodge was to offer a “grown-up” version of going to camp. Sleeping bags & bunk beds were replaced with beautiful maple beds covered in soft, cozy Roots Home fleece sheets. Free time activities of “kick-the can” and “arts & crafts” were replaced with whale watching, sea kayaking and beach combing. And, campfire sing-alongs were replaced with unplugged performances by none other than the iconic, Canadian Bare naked Ladies.
This unique vision is what drew Jason Priestley as an original investor. Known for his acting, directing, and race car driving, Jason wanted to be part of this eco-tourism venture. He wanted to share his passion for the West Coast experience. Facing some struggles, the original Lodge owners sold the property to the Priestley family, who in turn, relaunched it as Terrace Beach Resort. By rebranding and adding some personal touches, the resort experienced a positive turn around.
After years of promoting the West Coast and enjoying years of success, the Priestleys decided to retire. It is in the summer of 2020, that Island Creek Developments purchased the property to fix up the resort and share it with a collection of owners from around BC.
Now each suite is individually owned while being taken care of by a local team to ensure all guests have a wonderful stay.
