Wow! Just loved this place. So comfortable and homely. Frank & Alexis are superb hosts. Our meal was delicious and the best we had on our trip. Views are stunning and a lovely outdoor area to relax and large lounge area inside. Highly recommend this lodge. Wish we could have stayed longer. And Daisy the little dog was just gorgeous!

1. You MUST leave your shoes and panniers outside 2. You MUST not bring any food or alcohol 3. You MUST pay top price for any food and alcohol 4. You MUST be ready for dinner at 6 5. You will get 1 choice for dinner (which will be cooked very well, but salmon isn't always for everyone) 6. You MUST not go into the kitchen (sign on chair to block you) 7. You WILL BE UNDER SURVEILLANCE The strangest thing of all.... there are multiple cameras throughout the living area. We were told they are only turned on when they are away, but "coincidentally" very soon after one of our group took a photo of the STAFF ONLY sign in the kitchen, the owner was over to explain why it was there...YOU WILL BE WATCHED (And maybe listened to- regardless of what they say) Nice place, but very strict rules and supervision. Alexis seemed always on edge. They look always for an opportunity to take another few dollars- and the prices seem very high. The surveillance seems very obtrusive, unnecessary and a little disturbing

The weary travellers arrived to a close-up with a native falcon in the tree, and a lovely wee dog, Daisy, to greet us. Then we had to celebrate having completed a day in the saddle with cold beers and a fine dining meal. Our rooms were luxurious, and the hospitality from Alexis and Frank was so very kind. They thought of everything we could possibly need. The environment is breath-taking and being right on the rail trail, this is a gorgeous place to stop.

The Lodge owners were VERY warm, friendly and accommodating as we had arrived earlier than expected and they welcomed us. They politely offered packed lunches when departing to assist us which helped greatly. Dinner was OUTSTANDING! 5 STARS all the way! Well worth the spoil!!! Highly recommend. The view and facilities are too die for, so lush!
