  Broughton Archipelago and Broken Group
  Posted by: WestCoastPaddler on Dec-07-12 3:47 PM (EST)
 

If you're looking for cabin-based trips in an area that is fairly sheltered, I'd suggest the Broughton Archipelago, and specifically The Paddlers Inn -- it's a fantastic place that I've stayed on several occasions that makes a great base for exploring the area. You can expect calm flat waters for the most part in the summer months in the Broughton.

As far as the Broken Group goes -- it's like a theme park for paddlers. I've done a few trips there and highly recommend it as it has something for every level of paddler -- and it's absolutely gorgeous. As has been mentioned, there are no cabins there but the Sechart Lodge offers some accommodation nearby. Here's a couple of Broken Group trip reports:

Hope this helps,
