Are you in the mood to go off-grid on your next vacation but you don’t want to give up some of life’s modern conveniences? Check out the Squitty Bay Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast on Lasqueti Island, which is not served by B.C. Hydro.
This eco-tourist B&B has a windmill, solar power, and a water wheel, not to mention an outdoor shower and incredible hiking opportunities. And there’s a glorious view of Squitty Bay Provincial Park to accompany brekkie that comes with farm-fresh eggs and homemade bread.
Lasqueti Island is home to more than 400 residents, and it’s only accessible by a car-free ferry from French Creek, just north of Parksville.
