Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, British Columbia

From the Harper Collection: Idyllic wilderness retreat located half an hour by boat from Tofino at the mouth of the Bedwell River. The grounds contain a cluster of log cabin-style buildings, plus guest accommodations in 11 luxurious tents. These are connected by cedar boardwalks and come with thick rugs, antique furniture, Adirondack-style beds with down duvets, electric lighting and propane “woodstoves.” Each tent has a dedicated dressing room/shower in an adjacent central bathhouse. The cookhouse is a handsome post-and-beam space with high ceilings, a doublesided fieldstone fireplace, picture windows, an open kitchen and a wraparound deck. Chef Timothy May creates memorable “modern natural cuisine,” and his five-course dinners include dishes such as truffle-marinated spaghetti squash salad with tiger prawns, and lightly seared albacore with a duck confit. Activities include hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, whale-watching, bearviewing and fishing for steelhead, salmon and cutthroat trout.
