Inn At Laurel Point Blog | Stay different…


Things are about to smell a bit different here at the Inn.

What does BC’s pristine Great Bear Rainforest, the Coastal First Nations and Silk Road all have in common? Well, they’re the masterminds behind our new line of guest amenities that includes great-smelling and eco-friendly shampoo and conditioner, soap, bath foam and salt, body lotion, massage oil and face mist.

One of the awesome products in our new line of guest amenities!

Our new exclusive products are just as unique as all of us who work here at the Inn and feature great-smelling tree bough oils (harvested by members of the Coastal First Nations – Great Bear Initiative from BC’s pristine Great Bear Rainforest). If you close your eyes and take a whiff, you just might, for a second, think that you’re walking through a West Coast rainforest just after a rainstorm – yum! The products are also blended by our very own Silk Road (the same local company that also creates our signature hotel tea).

Daniela Cubelic, owner of Silk Road, poses with one of her great-smelling products.

So why did we make the switch to these products? In two words – Guest Experience. We believe that our guests deserve the most authenitically local experience possible. And of course they’re good for the environment by being both plant-based and biodegradable (as BC’s first carbon-neutral hotel, this one is a biggie for us).

Next, they support other local businesses, such as the Coastal First Nations – Great Bear Initiative and Silk Road. The Great Bear Initiative does great work in our community, helping to create meaningful (and conservation-based) employment for our First Nations people – we’re so proud to become the first commercial client for this awesome group of people!

We were joined this morning by Harold Yeltatzie, president of the Coastal First Nations – Great Bear Initiative.

Lastly, these products smell and feel awesome and we’re pretty positive you’re going to love them as much as you. To appeal to all our guests, the scent is gender neutral and the products mild on the skin.

So next time you’re staying in our Erickson Wing, throw your cares to the wind and take a hike through our beautiful BC wilderness… all without having to leave your room. (Not visiting us anytime soon? You can also buy them off our website!)
