Reviews for Brentwood Bay Lodge and Spa
Wonderful place for adults, 2016-09-01
Captain: , Redmond, Wa (101)

Visited in late Aug, wonderful place for adults.
The lodge was well maintained and Staff was great.
A good place to stop when visiting the gardens.

Great stopover, 2016-08-22
Captain: , Saanich, BC (50)

Get to use the resort facilities with the hot tub and swimming pool (adults only). I would give it five stars but the only problem is there is only one toilet for women and one for men for the entire marina which is an issue.Staff are fantastic and quick to help as you arrive.

Convenient to Butchart Gardens, 2014-09-20
Captain: , Portland, OR (279)

We enjoyed two nights at this friendly little marina in September 2014. Reservations are a must. When entering, keep the red can buoy to starboard. There are also white obstruction markers. Locals say that there are frequent groundings in the area between the buoy and the shore, and it is rock, not sand.

The restrooms and showers are very clean and the docks are in good repair. The ferry next door runs infrequently and we were not bothered by noise or wake.

The pub and the main dining room at the lodge are both excellent and the service stellar. The resort recommended a kennel for our two dogs, and the lady who operates it even came and got the dogs and brought them back bright and early the next day. Butchart Gardens is a short taxi ride.

Still solid! Updated review..., 2013-08-27
Captain: , Novelty, WA (214)

August 2013 review: Still great staff, very helpful. Restaurant options nearby that take kids, Seahorse and Grill exist. We ate at the Seahorse twice and it was just fine, if a bit busy. Power was great, even with some larger boats in marina. Sense of community still a bit lacking, but I've decided thats due to size of the marina and capacity for guests- folks still really nice that you talk to. Laundry needs two driers I think, to keep up with the one washer. Actually causes issues for people and friendly relations. Proximity to Butchart still a big draw, and the location is very friendly!

August 2011 review: Staff here was unbelieveable. Matt at the dock was THE MAN. Helped this newer cruiser and our family in so many ways. Really, a great attribute to the whole operation.

The marina is nice, docks, power, water, etc. Little tough to get in to some of the slips for larger boats, but we were allowed the outside tie and that was easy. Only downside to that is the wave action from the ferry which was literally right in front of us- but that only ran until 7pm so it was FINE. Wind made waves one night that had us in an uncomfy- but safe- roll that got old for those trying to sleep at 3am.

The facility is very nice- really upscale and for those that want to get in and have a bite to eat at a NICE restaurant, this looked good. I say looked because small children are in general not welcome around here, and we have 4. Pool doesn't allow kids, the low-end food in the pub doesn't allow kids due to liquor laws, etc.

The marina lacked what I call "community". We had very few interactions with other boaters, which I find as odd based on every other marina I've been to where I am bowled over by the friendly nature of the marine community.

For major provisions its a hike- as mentioned almost a 2km walk- UP HILL- to get to the liquour store, grocery, etc.

Proximity to Butchart Gardens was AWESOME and we did like the location- a lot. The facility is not kid friendly, but we knew that going in. We'd go back, but it wouldn't be as a main goal- more along the lines of going to also hit the Gardens and such.

Two negative facility comments though- the power (30amp/120v) seemed to dip down to 113v once some larger craft arrived, which isn't good for motors. Also, the single washer and dryer setup is a bit limited- and the dryer took forever to dry a load.

Really, just nits here- we will come back if we are in the Saanich area for any reason- would recommend with the caveats stated above.

A wonderful resort with a marina, 2013-04-11
Captain: , Sequim, WA (130)

This is a really relaxing resort with staff that does not forget you are staying at the marina. We had a relaxing evening with food and drink and then a quiet night in the marina. This is a stop worth considering!

A Gem In The Ruff, 2012-09-19
Captain: , Seattle, WA and Ft. Lauderdale, FL (330)

Pulled into a side tie with a 70' to watch the fireworks from Buchart Gardens. The fireworks weren't all that great as their focus isn't toward the water but toward the folks within Buchart Gardens. The resort however was most pleasant. There is a pool, sauna, a great little restaurant with good food. Call ahead for reservations. There is no fuel.

Great Resort, Average Marina, 2011-07-12
Captain: , Portland (100)

The resort/spa is, as reviewed, spectacular. The marina is average and fairly small in terms of facilities. The dockside staff is great. Provisioning is problematic as the main township is a fair 1.5 to 2 km hike away.

We both loved it here...., 2011-06-12
Captain: , Bremerton, WA (10)

What a nice retreat. Great place to relax, get a message, go for a swim and the food is good too! There were a few kids around but what a break from the likes of Poets Cove on South Pender, no offence kiddies. Took a cab ride to the Church and State Whinery which was fun. Ran the dinghy over to Butchart Gardens for the fireworks show too. One of our favorite stops.

Great spot, 2011-03-13
Captain: , Sidney BC (582)

This is a five star resort and the use of the pool and showers makes this good value for the money. Have enjoyed the bar and restaurant here too. Some caution is advised on approach but it is pretty clearly marked and charted. Stayed here many times over the years and this one is an example of where things have improved considerably with investment in the property. Shopping is a fair distance away (walk up the hill to Brentwood Village) as the stuff that is truly local is limited.

WOW, what a great place!, 2011-01-30
Captain: , Olalla, WA (342)

We docked and headed up the the Brentwood Resort for a fabulous breakfast that was very affordable. If you can, ask the dock master for shower access. They are first rate and not coin operated. We did not use the spa or pool but look forward to trying that as well on our next visit.

Brentwood Bay--A Word of Caution, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Anacortes, WA (282)

Brentwood Bay is a first class facility, although space for visiting boats is limited. Reservations suggested in the summer. Exercise care when approaching the southern guest docks. There are exposed rocks at low water to the SE of the docks.

Great get away, 2011-01-06
Captain: , Friday Harbor, WA (490)

can not say enought about the place. A great week end get away

Brentwood Bay Marina, 2009-11-19
Captain: , Cap Sante Marina, Anacortes, WA (61)

Small marina and well protected. Walk to eat. Power 30 & 50a. Well maintained, some docks are new.
