Their story

Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge sits within the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The evergreen forests slope down mountains and meet the Clayoquot Sound. Right on the water is the Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge, an eco-lodge where all the beauty of nature shines through.

The founder of Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge, Richard Genovese, was inspired by the landscape and decided to open the lodge to share his love for the area. In 2000, Genovese bought and opened the 600-acre resort. For seventeen years, the lodge was lauded for its eco-safari approach. After Genovese died, the property was acquired by KSL Capital Partners, who bought the property in hopes of maintaining Genovese’s vision.

The Baillie Lodges network currently maintains the Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge. They have renovated the Lodge to bring it back to its former glory with all the contemporary styles of 2021. The Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge is currently the most remote and wild offering of the Baillie Lodges. Read more about them here.
