We were met warmly by Colleen at this fab accommodation. Our ensuite room was very spacious and well equipped with a generous continental breakfast. Very comfortable with a lovely bed, right on the track with a stunning view. NB no TV but you won't need it. Great wi fi. For dinner we decided to have Colleens dinner and were very... More

Got there at 2:15 after our first day walking the Queen Charlotte Track, so had time for a swim in the sound - very bracing! The room was very comfortable, and beautifully located, with a superb view across Endeavour Inlet. We slept well on the queen-sized bed, the dinner Colleen cooked us (main and dessert) was excellent, and went down... More

We stayed here after our first day tramping the Queen Charlotte Track. Tired and sweaty, the lodge was a welcome sight. Colleen, our hostess, was welcoming and supplied cold beer and chilled wine. Later our dinner (excellent pork chops) was brought to our room. My wife's gluten sensitivity was observed. A great stay!

We stayed here after our first day on the four-day Queen Charlotte Track walk. Our room was lovely and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. There was a beautiful deck where we spent our afternoon reading before we discovered that there was WiFi available, as well. Colleen is an excellent host (and a great chef; be sure to order... More

Walked from ships cove to Cnoc la Lear and arrived not knowing what to expect and found the most beautiful room, marvellous hosts, gorgeous food and a view of sunset over Queen Charlotte Sound that was spectacular. Sitting out on the deck and having a world class meal delivered with a local wine and a dessert to die for was... More

Absolutely loved our stay here. The hosts were lovely, the room was beautifully decorated and had a nice sunny deck. Our dinner was amazing! Had one of the best sleeps ever! Took some amazing sunset photos.

A great day at a great location. We had a wonderful room overlooking the garden and the sound. We were greeted like old friends and felt right at home. Colleen is a great cook. Thanks for a great dinner. Hope to be back one day. W & A

Had a lovely relaxing after first day on the track. Our host was most helpful and friendly, cooking us a delicious meal of blue cod. Deliciously fresh! Beds very comfortable, and the rooms were roomy. Thanks for a lovely evening, a shame we didn't know you did reflexology!! Have a relaxing winter 😊

We stayed here for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. We had a sweet room that overlooked the water with a porch that we could sit on and look at the inlet. The host Colleen was wonderfully nice and even made us a home-cooked dinner that was delicious. She also prepared us breakfast and lunch. We very much appreciated her... More
