A Vancouver Island Escape at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort

For the first night of our Vancouver Island road trip, we escaped to the magical and woodsy cabins at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort in Parksville, BC. The rustic log cottages were the perfect "BC" experience, and we loved cozying up in the huge forest, with the ocean just steps away.

After spending the day exploring Nanaimo, BC, we headed to Parksville for the night. Waking up underneath a ton of Douglas Firs is definitely a "BC" experience, and we had the best morning with our bestie Lindsay from Treasures and Travels blog. We took full advantage of our cabin's kitchen, because who doesn't enjoy breakfast in the woods? 

We loved the warm and inviting interior of the cottages too, this is definitely one of the best places to stay on Vancouver Island. The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort is also one of the best spas in Canada, so if you have time for a spa treatment, definitely book one...it's on our bucket list for next time!
