Stay with a heartthrob: Inside Jason Priestley's BC cottage for rent
Of course, the Private Eyes (and 90210!) star has the quintessential Canadian getaway
If you've ever dreamed of hanging out with Brandon Walsh from Beverly Hills 90210 – this might be the vacation for you!
Jason Priestley owns a resort of quaint cottages in the surfing village of Ucluelet, BC on Vancouver Island which is about 5 ½ hours from Vancouver proper via car and boat. He co-owns the resort with his father Lorne, and stepmother Norma.
The resort has 6 different configurations to suit the needs of their different visitors from multi floor beachfront units to smaller one person or couples retreats.
The cottages bear names that are oh-so-west coast. The room above is the "Morning Mist", which includes all the creature comforts of home including a kitchenette, barbeque, TV, and a hot tub on the balcony with stunning views of Terrace Beach.
The Captain's Quarters is built for a King and Queen who just want to get away from it all. Spread across three levels, the cottage has enough room to sleep 8 for that extended family or friendly friends. It's also got a hot tub with more incredible views of Terrace Beach, because let's be honest, that's the whole reason you're here . Oh, right, and also a Brandon Walsh sighting.
The rates are reasonable too, ranging from $216 - $369/night for the Captain's Quarters down to $99 for the bachelor option.
I was in Ucluelet for a wedding a few years ago and can definitely say it's an incredible place for a rest and recharge. It's quiet, secluded and quintessentially Canadian. Getting to the resort can be a bit of a journey depending on where you're coming from, but it's definitely worth the trek.
Full disclosure: there's no Peach Pit in town, sorry.
