Sunwolf Riverside Resort

Squamish Success Stories: Food & Beverage, Hospitality

Sunwolf Riverside Resort offers a boutique, rustic lodging experience set on five acres of grassy woodland on the Cheakamus river below the picturesque Coast Mountains. One of a select few businesses in the Sea-to-Sky to hold a Green Tourism Canada Gold designation, Sunwolf was also recently awarded the Squamish Climate Action Network’s Green Business Award, as well as the Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Service Excellence Award.

Owners Jake & Jess Freese, who live on site with their three young children, have decades of experience in the service industry and are passionate about hospitality and responsible tourism.

Whether for weekend getaways, weddings, reunions or corporate retreats, Sunwolf’s year-round resort has seen exciting growth in the past seven years. And the popularity of its award-winning riverside café has been explosive; Fergie’s has been voted Best Breakfast three years running in the Squamish Chief’s Annual Reader’s Choice Awards.

Sunwolf and Fergie’s are all about bringing people together, and with so many vibrant, forward-thinking local businesses in town to partner with, Jess and Jake continually look for opportunities to work closely with local suppliers and vendors. There is no shortage of creative entrepreneurs to collaborate with in the area. 

Sunwolf’s continued growth and success exemplifies that Squamish, with its flourishing population of active young families, students and outdoor enthusiasts, along with booming tourism traffic, is not only a great place to live, but also an ideal community for small business.

"It's impossible to live in Squamish and not be moved by the extraordinary natural environment that surrounds us. That sense of wonder is what drives us to bring people here, and to do so in a sustainable way."
