A Must-go see Gem Hidden Along the Banks of Beautiful Haslam Creek!
A hidden gem near Nanaimo awaits snowbirds and explorers seeking an affordable, natural getaway this fall. Vancouver Island travellers can book a stay at Parkbridge’s Rondalyn Resort for a secluded, picturesque escape just a quick drive from the Duke Point ferry terminal or a quick drive from the Departure Bay Terminal.
Nestled in the woods between Nanaimo and Ladysmith, Rondalyn offers easy access to outdoor activities but is only a 5-minute drive from city comforts like restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and other attractions.
The resort is a perfect addition to anyone taking a scenic road trip from Victoria to the north of the island, particularly up the coast through Coombs, Nanaimo, Qualicum Beach and Cumberland.
Those on such a journey might stand in awe beneath the towering Douglas firs of Cathedral Grove, pop into the Fanny Bay seafood market for farm fresh oysters and live crab, take a nature hike through the Morrell Sanctuary and pop into White Sails brewing for its award-winning Snake Island Cascadian Dark Ale.
They will rest easy with Rondalyn’s amenity-rich accommodations, including overnight voyageur camping, rustic tent sites, seasonal RV sites and cabin rentals. All sites feature a fire-pit and picnic table. The friendly staff is on-site to help guests with whatever they need.
The amenities of the resort include a 9-hole golf course, a clubhouse with TV, cable and dvd and a basketball court as well as horseshoe pits, beach volleyball and road hockey. Later, relax in the heated pool and hot tub. Of course, there is also a children’s playground on the site. Pandemic protections are in place, including contactless check-in and measures to allow physical distancing.
Whether you are passing through or staying for a while, you won’t want to miss this must-see gem. For all inquiries about Rondalyn Resort, please visit them online.
