Mussel Beach is a place to rejuvenate in nature whilst enjoying the tranquility of remoteness.

Our season runs from May to September ~ come and experience getting back to nature on the pristine west coast of Vancouver Island.

Mussel Beach Private Getaway is located on 153 acres, on the north side of Barclay Sound, with 1.45km of south and east facing oceanfront.

Our private glamping site sits between the Long Beach and Broken Group Islands units of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, near Ucluelet.

Welcome to our unique, wilderness private glamping getaway.  We live onsite in our off-grid cabin, which also houses the reception office for our getaways.  We look forward to meeting you during check-in.

Camper Reviews

Read What Our Campers Thought

“PURE MAGIC is the first two words that come to mind trying to describe our stay in the Eagles Nest hut. Our stay was beyond better than we expected and we cannot wait to return! Lori was an incredible host, very kind and responsive to any questions. You can tell a lot of thought and details went into our hut and all other sites with several special touches and gorgeous lighting. The glamping hut literally has everything you could need for your stay and the bed and blankets are so cozy! The location is absolutely surreal with an ocean front area and views of wild life (bring your binoculars for viewing bears)! You feel like you are on a private site/beach yet have the comfort of knowing you have neighbours in the wilderness. We cannot wait to return here again and we are so grateful for the opportunity!”

“Ocean front glamping at its best. An amazing gem on a private beach. The views were stunning and the Sea Shack was a touch of glamour amongst a breathtaking ocean backdrop. Lori and Curtis didn’t forget a thing! Espresso percolator, Bodum coffee press, pitcher, cutting board, propane stove, BBQ, BBQ utensils, cutlery and kitchen utensils, Saran, foil, parchment paper, drinking water and wash water, fire pit, firewood, fire starters, camp chairs, two level deck….the list goes on. Really just bring your food and enjoy stunning moonlit views from bed. The stars were amazing, untouched by any light pollution. Mussel Beach is a private, wild rugged piece of paradise! It will surpass your expectations. Lori and Curtis, thank you for your amazing hospitality and prompt, communication. There is a reason why Lori and Curtis are super-hosts!!”
