Charlene Patterson retired from the cruise ship industry and moved to Port Alberni in 2010 with the vision of building a lifestyle in a welcoming community with potential. She bought a big 100+ year old church and revived it into what is well on it's way to be Port Alberni's favourite community social hub. She named it Char's Landing, because Charlene previously worked in the airline industry, then the marine industry and now after travelling the world, Char has landed and planted her feet firmly on the ground.
Char's Guesthouse is hosted by Cat, the Bar Manager upstairs at Char's Landing 19+ Public House. She was raised here and raised her family here in Port Alberni and is always ready to visit, answer questions and give tips about nice/adventurous places to check out around town. Char's Landing 19+ Public House is open until 12midnight 365+ days per year with a comfy patio and lounge, live music and community social events. Our guests are encouraged to enjoy the privacy of the Guesthouse (with the muffled sounds of community emanating from upstairs), or to join us upstairs in the Public House for a bevy and some community social time.
