Great weekend spent with family and above and beyond hospitality by everyone at the Lodge. Amazing location on the beautiful rugged Westcoast yet with all the creature comforts of home :) The meals were spectacular which matched the scenery perfectly. Treat yourself and your family and come stay at the Lodge, I know we'll be back!

Did forget the 'no dairy / no mustard' in the lunch sandwiches a couple of days, but plenty was packed so we didn't go hungry. Super friendly other guests happily sharing their fishing knowledge, as did the... More
