Our Environment


The main attraction of Yellow Point is the setting. Not only is the property a fine example of temperate west coast rainforest, but it is nestled among the pristine Gulf Islands of British Columbia. As the name implies, the lodge is located on a point of land that commands a 270 degree ocean view at its tip.

Only a small portion of the land is developed, and barely at that. The man who founded the lodge, M.G. Hill, wanted his guests to be able to escape the urban pressures and felt that Mother Nature was the best landscape architect. The feeling around the property is rustic and very natural.

On any given day guests may enjoy seeing a family of deer or river otter, bald eagles fishing for salmon, wild mink, great blue heron, seals and sea lions, our extended family of quail or on a very lucky day, a pod of Orcas (killer whales) may pass by.

In 2008, 68 acres of the main property was protected by a conservation covenant. Registered against the title, it is a permanent restriction on any logging or development in perpetuity. The covenant holders are The Land Conservancy and the Nanaimo Area Land Trust. It allows the maintenance of our existing trail, road and water systems within the covenanted area, but that’s about it.

Our apologies: due to the wildlife on the property we are not able to welcome your pets.
