A hotel room is a standard accommodation that contains the basics you’d find in any hotel room. They’re usually outfitted with a television, a bed that can span from a twin to a king-sized, a desk, a bathroom complete with a shower and/or bathtub, and a dresser. Hotel rooms don’t really contain anything special, although the quality will definitely vary depending on the hotel itself.
Hotel Suites
On the other hand, a hotel suite is a larger room that consists of several more features than a hotel room. Suites can range anywhere from 400 to 3,000 square feet and will include a bedroom, kitchen, living space and dining area. But why such a wide range when it comes to suite room sizes? It’s because there are various types of suites that a hotel can provide. It’s important to make sure you book the suite type you intended to, as they can differ quite a bit from what you initially thought. The four variations of hotel suites you’ll encounter are regular suites, junior suites, residential suites and presidential suites.

The Regular Suite is complete with one or more bedrooms, a separate living space, a bathroom and dining area. This is the most common suite style and is best for families with children or travel groups.

The Junior Suite is smaller than a regular suite. These feature one bedroom and living room that are only separated by a partial wall or room divider. There’s no dining area but the suite comes with a bathroom and gives you the lowest price range between each suite option.

The Residential Suite is for someone looking for a home away from home. More like an apartment than anything else, you can expect a separate living space, dining room, one or more bedrooms as well as a wet bar or full kitchen. Some suites also come with a washer and dryer set up or even a balcony.

The Presidential Suite is luxury at its finest. For the ultimate experience, the presidential (also known as the penthouse) suite has everything. You get all the features of a residential suite, as well as great views, high-end spa fixtures, a foyer, private balcony and maybe even a butler or two.
Which Suite is For You?
That depends on who you’re travelling with and the length of your stay. If you’re travelling with a bunch of your friends or family, then booking a larger suite with multiple bedrooms will leave you all a bit more comfortable. If you’re travelling alone but still want to experience a luxury suite to de-stress, then choose the suite that fits your budget while allowing you to have fun outside your room.

Windsurfing has been a popular sport in Harrison Lake for decades. The Harrison Windsports Society is a wonderful group of windsurfing enthusiasts that maintains a small beach area at the breakwater on the south west side of the Harrison Village – commonly referred to as Breakwater Beach.  They have produced a short guide on how to get the best windsurfing experience in Harrison Lake. Here’s their best advice:

How Can I Catch The Best Winds?

Harrison Lake’s winds blow from the south on most sunny summer days at around 15-25 mph. The best winds occur during May through August. Check your local weather forecast or weather website for wind speeds. In general, winds are calm in the morning, with the wind beginning to blow in the early afternoon and lasting to early evening.

If you’re in B.C. and looking for a camping and canoeing adventure, look no further than the fine campsites in Harrison Lake and Sasquatch Provincial Park. Here are some of our favourites:

Harrison Lake: Chehalis River Recreation Site

Chehalis River offers 52 campgrounds located along the banks of Chehalis River, in the Fraser Valley of BC. The sites are nestled in an old growth forest with over 1.5 km of riverfront perfect for canoeing. This is a beautiful site built around mature timber.

You’ll find picnic tables, fire pits, and outhouses positioned around the property. There’s a beautiful walking trail through the forest that terminates at the river downstream from the campground. After a few days of camping and canoeing in Chehalis, we guarantee you’ll feel refreshed and recharged. (more…)

Sasquatch Provincial Park is a beautiful getaway in the heart of Fraser Valley. You can enjoy camping, paddling, and fishing in any of the park’s three lakes: Trout Lake, Hicks Lake and Deer Lake. Here are some fun activities available at Sasquatch Provincial Park.

See the Wildlife

Sasquatch Park supports a large variety of wildlife including beavers, mountain goats, woodpeckers, warblers, and vireos. Many rare species have been seen in the park, including bald eagles, tailed frogs, and black petaltail dragonflies. The lakes and streams in the park are full of fish with over ten species of fish from the sturgeon, smelt, salmon, catfish, and stickleback families. For anglers, all three lakes are stocked with rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and brook char.

Keep an eye out for the park’s namesake Sasquatches as well. Sasquatches (aka Bigfoots) are large hairy human-like creatures said to live in the forests of Canada. They have notoriously large feet and footprints. Bring a camera, because a Sasquatch photo will sell for big bucks. (more…)

Harrison Lakeview Resort prides itself on being a family oriented resort, in a small town where family activities for both children and adults are in abundance. We value the importance of family and want to help as many families as possible, which is why we are bringing attention to a fundraising campaign for Lanie, a single mother of two children, 18 year old Jolan and 21 year old Kayla.

Lanie was diagnosed with cancer and is now in the terminal stage, and is very worried about how her children (who have recently arrived from the Philippines in 2015) will be struggling to make a living after she passes. Currently, they are financially struggling with Kayla working three jobs in order to hold them over. At the request of Lanie’s family doctor, Harrison Lakeview Resort is participating in this fundraising campaign to help offer Jolan and Kayla the opportunity to build a life in Canada, and we are urging others to do the same. We want to help Jolan and Kayla feel secure in this troubling time, and for them to see Canada as the safe and secure home that will always be giving.

Harrison Lake Hot Springs

“Come ye who suffer, and lose your pain…” read a sign near Congress Spring, NY in 1867. Since the late 18th century those natural waters have been hailed as a cure for everything from dyspepsia to gout. But Congress is far from the first natural hot spring to be celebrated for its healthful benefits. People have “taken the waters” for thousands of years as a cure for ailments both common and complex. That tradition continues today all across the globe.

Ancient Practices, Scientific Results

The treatment of disease through bathing is known as balneotherapy, taken from the Latin word “balneum” for bath. It is a fitting root, as bath therapy is an ancient remedy, stretching as far back as the Ancient Romans and beyond. In our modern world driven by synthetics and pharmaceuticals, it may be surprising that such an old form of traditional medicine is still recommended today. That’s because it still works, with science to back up the claims. (more…)
