Bowen Island gives you the perfect escape from Vancouver’s hustle and bustle. Its charming, rural setting and friendly vibe makes you instantly feel at home and removed from city life. Yet, this quaint little haven is located only a 30 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. The short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay brings you to Snug Cove, with Bowen Island Lodge located just 800 metres from the terminal. Both close and far away from everything, Bowen Island Lodge offers the perfect wedding venue for those seeking a rural setting without having to go too far.
