History of
Klahoose Wilderness Resort 

Klahoose Wilderness Resort was original erected in 2008 and the originally named Homfray Lodge after the channel where it is located. The resort is within the territory of the Klahoose First Nation and in proximity to our neighbours of the Homalco, Kwakiutl, and Tla’amin Nations.

Klahoose Wilderness Resort is off-the-grid, and does not have road access and sits on the remote shores and calm waters of Homfray Channel (Thee chum mi yich – meaning further back inside), just north of the Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park, the Sunshine Coast and just south of Yekwamen (Toba Inlet) on the southern edge of the lush Great Bear Rainforest and coast mountain range of the beautiful British Columbia's Pacific Coast. 


Homfray Channel was named after a civil engineer Robert Homfray, Civil Engineer , b.1824 d, 1902.  Homfray attempted to find a better way to the Chilcotin Gold fields via Bute Inlet with the aid of the Klahoose Chief. 

Improvements were added to this Sunshine Coast wilderness lodge after 2011 including: a new  water filtration system; environmentally friendly septic system; hydro electric system, thanks to a river that runs through the property, with 24/7 power and back up generator; a massive dock for water sports and marine activities.


In 2017 the resort was re-imagined as an all-inclusive eco-resort with stays including wilderness cruising, marine adventures, kayaking, yoga retreats and Klahoose First Nation grizzly bear viewing tours in Toba Inlet.

In 2020, Homfray Lodge was purchased by Qathen Xwegus Management Corporation (QXMC) , the Klahoose First Nation’s Economic Development Corporation and relaunched as Klahoose Wilderness Resort. The BC Resort now offers immersive Indigenous culture experiences alongside the outdoor experiences such as kayaking, nature and wildlife viewing and the Klahoose grizzly bear tours in nearby Toba Inlet.

The main lodge is of massive cedar timbers and includes the dinner area and a lounge where guests can sit by the fire and relax after a day’s adventures. Stays at this BC resort are all inclusive for 3 or 4 nights and all details for your day of adventures, accommodation, meals and cultural experiences, wildlife and grizzly bear viewing are included. 

The resort offers two accommodation options including Lodge Rooms and private cedar Cabins. The private cabins offer one- and two-bedroom options, while the Lodge Rooms are perfect for two guests. All of the accommodation have a private bathroom, and offer ocean views.

You have to see it for yourself to truly experience the beauty and natural wonder of the area. We absolutely love the Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound, Toba Inlet and Klahoose Wilderness Resort, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
