Although I've never stayed at Painter's Lodge in Campbell River, I did take a quick boat ride there and enjoyed lunch at the Tyee Pub while staying at nearby April Point Resort & Spa on Quadra Island. 

Coming up in May is the 8th Annual Photographer's at Painter's, a weekend getaway I'd truly enjoy -- too bad I'll be off to New York City at that timeHere's the official description: 
Picture yourself spending the weekend with some of Western Canada's premier professional photographers, May 3-5, 2013. This weekend will broaden your horizons, polish your skills and inspire your creativity -- whether photography is your passion or just your pastime. 
During the three-day workshop, participants will learn techniques from professional photographers in small-group workshops and panel discussion. The weekend includes: 
  • Two nights accommodation at Painter's Lodge 
  • Two full days of workshops, demonstrations and panel discussions plus entrance to the photograph gallery
  • Two brunches
  • Wine and cheese reception with workshop photographers
