Heriot Bay is on the eastern side of Quadra. The original inn was built in about 1895, rebuilt in 1912 and updated since.
We chose to stay in the marina with our Bayliner 2452. They have diesel and gas, and offer slips for boats large and small.

There's also a dinghy dock for people from the nearby anchorage at Rebecca Spit to tie up. Call ahead for a reservation or check in on Channel 66a to get a spot. Amenities include water, showers, laundry, Internet, and some power hookups. The village grocery store is within walking distance for re-stocking.
|Getting to the Inn from the Marina.|
Other accomodations options include rooms in the inn, suites and cabins, or oceanside tent and RV campground spots.
|The Heriot Bay Inn.|
We love to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Inn's Heron restaurant. There is inside seating, but we love the outside deck with marina and ocean views. There's also a pub for music, watching games on TV, or dancing.

The Heriot Bay Inn and Marina are open all year long. Travelling in winter or shoulder seasons offer a substantial discount, but with such reasonable prices coming during the summer is your best bet.
