Telegraph Cove Resort

Near the northern tip of Vancouver Island is a great little place called Telegraph Cove, which probably has a population of about 20 and is home to the Telegraph Cove Resort. The resort is made up of old homes, cottages and buildings from a former lumber mill and salmon saltery that was established in the 1920s. Telegraph Cove is one of the last remaining boardwalk communities in BC.


This photo was taken at mid-low tide. At high tide, the water line is at least half-way up the pillars under the cabins.


A word of caution to anyone planning on staying at the resort: Don't eat there. The food is mediocre at best, but you'll pay premium prices for it. The resort itself is great, but it's well worth the 20-minute drive to Port McNeill if you want a good meal at a reasonable price.
