My partner and I had the opportunity to stay at the Point au Roche Lodge on the last night of vacation before flying out of Burlington Airport. My only regret is not spending more than one night at the lodge. It was absolutely beautiful!
We were greeted by Karen who gave us a quick tour of the lodge, told us about breakfast and then showed us to our room. She was very warm, friendly and welcoming.
We stayed in the Gardener Room, which was very comfortable. The room had a queen-size bed, which was very, very comfortable. We also had a balcony shared with the room next door, which also provided access to the garden downstairs. The bathroom was clean and roomy. About the only thing I would have liked to see is a better shower head, but I can surely overlook that for how wonderful everything else is!
Also provided in the room is a wonderful guide for the area, which included a list of local restaurants. We decided to have dinner at the Happy Pike in West Chazy and we couldn't have been happier. It's a very simple restaurant, but the food was excellent, the service was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed.
Breakfast provided in the morning was also excellent. We had the choice of a ham, chive and cream cheese omelet or blueberry pancakes. We both got the pancakes and they were absolutely delicious!
The common areas were also very comfortable and included a guest fridge, books, games, etc. There's also a catwalk that leads to another balcony not attached to any of the guestrooms. It was definitely a beautiful touch to the building!
We will definitely be back to the Point au Roche Lodge.
