Darke Waters Inn and Adventure Lodge has recently changed hands and we are excited to begin another new adventure with our family and recent new grand babies, Mason (Nov. 21, 2017) and Bella (Dec. 21, 2017). We are certain that Jim and his family will take good care of you and will be as excited to have you be a part of his adventure, just as you were for ours!

We are sad to be leaving it all behind but we are grateful for the amazing memories and wonderful friends that we’ve made and will continue to journey along with. Because of all of you we were kept very busy taking care of our guests and patrons, and sometimes the long hours (and months) kept us apart longer than we had anticipated at times. Sometimes we need to edit our dreams a bit and that can find us headed in another direction.

Becoming brand new grandparents late in 2017 was the highlight of our year and our hearts couldn’t be more fill. The thought of being so far away from them for extended periods of time was more that our hearts could handle (well, Corrina’s anyway). Running the lodge and having a piece of paradise to escape to every year was a dream come true and it was extremely hard to walk away from. But we know that we are about to venture out on another exciting journey as we build a future with our kids, and theirs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who have supported us for the past 6 years. We couldn’t have done it with out you!

  1. The site is just great guys! Hope I can come and stay one day and I am so glad as a former resident to see that some buildings are being maintained and used and folks like yourself are bringing life back to our beautiful and special little town. I hope you have a long and prosperous time in Ocean Falls.

    1960 to 1967 & summers of 1975 & ’77.

    Well I had a nice long phone conversation with Rob and just hearing about the beauty of this lodge I had to see for myself how much beauty it really held within. It’s beautiful I have never been to BC but if I ever do get to visit I will definately have staying here at the top of my list.

    What a beautiful venture for a husband and wife…all the best to both of you.

    Hope to visit the special little town,next year. We are checking prices now. We will drive to Bella Coola and come over on the Nimpkish. Will stay for approximately 3 days. We lived there from 1962-1966. Lived in Martin Valley for awhile. Then in the the Willow (#3) and the Cypress.

    Back in Ocean Falls for the third year and look forward to the fishing and the people every year. The fishing derby in August is one not to be missed.
