Tsa Kwa Luten Lodge
1 Lighthouse Road, Quadra Island 250-830-2299
Long before European explorers made their way to the Pacific Northwest, Cape Mudge on picturesque Quadra Island was called Tsa-Kwa-Luten, which means “gathering place” in the Kwak’wala language. Today the Laichwiltach people have conceived and built a modern, full-service beach-front lodge where their ancestors once lived, hunted, and fished the salmon-rich Discovery Passage. Tsa-Kwa-Luten is one of the few lodges featuring authentic Pacific Coast native architecture, art, and culture based on traditional Kwagiulth historical values. The lodge exudes the warmth of west coast wood construction and features the design of a Kwagiulth “Big House” as the main foyer and lounge area.
