Main LodgeOur 20,000 square foot Lodge is called ‘Rivendell', after the home of Elrond in JRR Tolkien’s novels. Rivendell was a ‘refuge for the weary and the oppressed, and a treasury of good counsel and wise lore’, and was visited by those seeking sanctuary, healing, and wisdom. We hope you will enjoy the peaceful setting, the warm hospitality of our staff, and a deep sense of restoration that can come from a stay at Homewood! The lodge can sleep up to 70 in a variety of types of rooms. Rivendell Lodge also includes two games room areas, comfy seating nooks, and 2 smaller lounges for seminars. The Fireside Room features a massive stone fireplace and can accommodate up to 150 people. Click here to find out more!
Dining RoomOur Dining Room seats up to 200 people, and provides spectacular views of Gowlland Harbour and the mountains of Vancouver Island to the west. The only thing that surpasses the view is the quality of our food! You will love the special attention our Red Seal Chef puts into every aspect of your meal! Each menu is specially crafted to meet the needs of our guests. Special diets (gluten free, vegetarian, and allergies) will be accommodated as long as you communicate your needs in advance. Floor to ceiling windows provide ample natural light, and quilting guilds and scrapbookers typically set up shop here for a week at a time! Find out more by clicking here.
Guest HouseThe Guest House is one of our nicest facilities! The main floor kitchen, living room, 2 washrooms and 4 upper bedrooms have all been renovated, and offer a cozy, inviting space to sleep or gather. The 4 downstairs bedrooms have not yet been renovated, but offer privacy and a quiet refuge from the activity of the Lodge. The lower level has two washrooms. Each bedroom is equipped with either a queen or a double bed. The Guest House is typically used by our primary Guest Groups, but may be rented by a small group. Self-catering is an option during some parts of the year.
HomesteadThe Homestead is Camp Homewood's original Lodge, and was completed in phases from the early 1950's onward. The charm of the meeting room is unparalleled! The stone fireplace and exposed log ceiling joists help create a very special atmosphere that drywall cannot match. The 5 bedrooms can sleep up to 16 people. The main floor includes the lounge, a kitchen area equipped with cooking utensils, dishes, and 2 stoves, plus two 3-piece washrooms. Self-catering is an option at certain times of the year. This is a good option for men's / women's retreats, or family camps.
WaterfrontHomewood's waterfront is where fun begins! Stroll down the 350' wharf and enjoy the views as you approach almost 5,000 sq. ft. of docks. Swim in our enclosed swimming area, or take a turn on a tube behind one of our ski boats. Want to play on the water and stay dry? No problem! Why not try one of our canoes (12), kayaks (12), Stand Up Paddleboards (10), or row boats (8)? Our docks also provide moorage for our fleet of four 27' Catalina sailboats and a rescue boat. The Paddle Pound and Boat House provide storage for paddles, oars, life jackets and other equipment.
CabinsOur 3 cabins are heated and insulated for comfortable use year-round. The unique triangular layout and high vaulted ceilings set these buildings apart from your typical 'rustic' camp cabins! The design is perfect for building community and facilitating discussion. Wash houses with showers are located just a few steps away through a towering grove of towering Douglas Fir trees. Each cabin can accommodate up to twelve people. The cabins are ideal for school groups, youth events, family camps, or men's / women's retreats.
Bunk HouseThe Bunk House provides comfortable dorm-style accommodation for up to 24 people. The main floor is divided into two halves. Each side is equipped with 6 sets of bunks and clothing storage units, a large washroom with two showers, two toilets, and two sinks, and separate outside entrances. A third sleeping area called 'The Bump Out' at the back of the building offers 3 additional sets of bunk beds to bring the total bed count up to 30. The Bunk House is conveniently located across the main driveway from Rivendell Lodge. It is an excellent housing option for school groups, youth groups, or men's / women's retreats.
Y2KThe Y2K has two suites on the lower level. Each unit is equipped with an ensuite bathroom, a double bed, plus a sleeping platform with 2 twin mattresses. The upper level has a large dorm-style room with 7 sets of bunk beds to sleep 14. A large, bright washroom is located adjacent to the bedroom area. A meeting space for up to 20 people and a spacious deck complete the layout.
TentsAdd an aura of adventure and romance to the whole camping experience and therefore they are the primary lodging for our children's camps in the summer. They comfortably accommodate ten people on mattresses on wooden floors with pulp mill canvas carpets. A fly extends beyond the tent on all sides and six feet in the front, keeping them dry in rain and cool in the heat. Wash houses including showers are located in the near vicinity of the tents.
Riding ArenasOur indoor riding area. It is 120' x 80' and allows year around riding, instruction, and rodeos. The Barn, Tack Shop, & Okey Corral are located adjacent to the Riding Arena. They provide winter storage for hay, stalls and mangers for the horses, heated storage for all the tack, and outdoor instructional area.
SailingOur fleet of four Catalina 27' sailboats can take you away! Enjoy the wind, water, scenic shoreline and abundant marine life surrounding camp for a one-hour excursion around our harbour or book a multi-day cruise to Desolation Sound or the Discovery Islands. We can work with you to customize your trip!
Craft ShopThe Dirks Memorial Craft Shop is designed to facilitate up to four small groups of people working on different projects at the same time. In addition to the main work room, there is a room for beading, leather work, and plaster mottos. A supply room and 2 washrooms complete the craft area.
