Sunwolf Cabins Review

Bottom Line

There are fewer things better than staying in a cozy cabin tucked away in the forest, somewhere you can disconnect and unplug from the outside world. We found this when we stayed at Sunwolf Cabins. Only a few minutes down the Squamish Valley Road, the Sunwolf cabins are nestled in the trees right along the banks of the Cheakamus River. Even with it’s close proximity to Squamish and Brackendale, as soon as you drive in you feel like this is the perfect place to unwind and connect with nature.

Our Experience

We had the opportunity to stay in the Logger’s Shack early this December. A beautiful, newly renovated 550 square foot cabin. It had all the modern conveniences you need but it was still kept rustic enough to feel set apart from everyday life. There were no screens to be found in the cabin, but plenty of windows to look out at the trees and a wood burning stove that kept the cabin toasty warm.

I don’t know about you but the coziness of a location is tripled when there is loft, which is where the main bed was in this cabin. Tucked in the A-Frame roof, it isn’t quite standing room, but it’s enough room to sit and curl up in one of the softest most comfortable beds we have slept in. There is another pull out bed downstairs so the cabin can comfortably sleep 4 people.

There was a fully equipped kitchen so we were able to cook our own dinner and brew up a cup of coffee to sit by the fire and listen to the rain falling outside. When the rain decided to break we took advantage of the open grounds to go rambling in the mossy forest and go sit by the river. It was quiet and secluded, it felt more like we were staying at a retreat; somewhere we could really rest and relax.

What They Offer

Being at Sunwolf for us was about slowing down, adjusting our pace so that we could just be in the surroundings. It helps that they have an on site cafe, called Fergie’s, that serves the most delicious brunch around, so there is no need to get up too early to grab breakfast.

They even have guided river rafting and eagle float trips, depending on the season. We took one of their winter Eagle Float Trips and have to say it was one of the most spectacular ways to see eagles. Within one hour we spotted over 200 and that doesn’t even include the other 13 varieties of birds we saw. For a fully detailed review of this trip check out our post on the Hello BC Blog here.

There is even an open air hot tub near the guest lodge that is free for all guests to use. We took a soak at night while it was peppering rain and let the day melt away.

For all of you pet parents out there you will be happy to know that Sunwolf if pet friendly, so you don’t have to worry about leaving your pooch at home.

When to Go

Summer or Winter will give you a completely different experience at Sunwolf. We got to experience the wintry side of Sunwolf and can definitely recommend it. One of the words we heard used throughout the day, especially during our trip on the river, was “magical”. There was magic in the rolling fog winding it’s way down the river, filling the forest with clouds and then being able to snuggle up inside a cozy cabin for the night.

Conclusion

Whether you are a local or a visitor to Squamish this is the perfect place to take some time to relax, unwind and unplug from daily life. If you get a chance to check this place out we can highly recommend it – whether it’s for a night, for a trip down the river or just to grab a delicious breakfast.

I moved to B.C. with my husband in 2010 after spending 6 years living abroad in Ireland. Originally from a small town in Alberta that was minutes away from the Rockies, I always knew I would return to the mountains one day. I love spending as much time as I can in the mountains, whether it be mountaineering, rock climbing or simply running on the backcountry trails. I love to challenge myself and seek out new experiences.

  1. Looks like a nice place BUT nowhere in this post or on their website is there a price. Must be too expensive for normal folks 🙁
