This eco-retreat is located on top of a bluff in the center of the Cowichan Valley, offering truly unique and stunning views. Hiking along the bluff provides a spectacular perspective of this beautiful valley, from Salt Spring Island and the Pacific Ocean in the east to Bald Mountain at the center of Lake Cowichan in the west. Guests will appreciate the forested valley walls surrounding them in a way which just isn’t possible from any other vantage point.
Stoltz Bluff affords magical views throughout the day and the seasons. Guests can take in both sunrises and sunsets, as well as brilliant fall colors, snowy mountain tops in a white winter wonderland, carpets of spring wildflowers, and of course, warm, dry summers with endless blue skies. Even a cloudy day at this property is a special experience, as guests look down on the cloud-covered valley and feel as though they are floating on their own private island.
Stoltz Bluff also provides one of the best bird watching locations in the valley due to its high elevation and proximity to the thermal winds that birds of prey love to glide on. With such a panoramic view, observing eagles, hawks, and vultures in the sky is commonplace, along with a large variety of birdsong in the Douglas Fir and Arbutus forest. If glampers are interested in viewing some aquatic life, take a short trip to the Cowichan River to see the salmon run, or a quick drive to the ocean to look for sea lions, seals, whales, and much more.
