Each summer for the last 6 years I have had the great pleasure to be the guest of Dr. Howard Mills and his wife Ruth, who is a Hostess Supreme. The Lodge is in fact the lovely large home of the Mills where they raised a large family and now have 10 superb rooms for B&B guests. The public spaces...

The rooms, the grounds, the food, the hosts - simply amazing! A great location for business socials or a private get away. Three suspension bridges adorn the beautiful walking trails surround this amazing venue!

The location is fantastic right on the water and the folks make you right at home. The drive in is a bit strange but make sure to visit. Peace and quiet with fantastic panorama. Just a few minutes outside of Kitimat and beats the alternatives!

I arrived mid afternoon to find a very friendly message in the lobby welcoming me. I made myself at home in one of the many rooms in this very large Home on a very large acreage nestled in a forest facing the inlet of Kitimat. Many walks and paths to wander the property. The wifi was great so that I...

I have visited this lodge many times over the years. What impresses me is the service offered by hosts Howard and Ruth have never changed plus the lodge itself is as pristeen the day it opened as it was during my recent visit. The lodge itself is nestled in Minette Bay and is surrounded by trees, creeks and water. Many...

This is a beautiful, peaceful spot to visit. The bed and breakfast is very large, so you have plenty of space. My bedroom had its own sink in the room, and an bathroom right next to it, as well as a private sitting area. The breakfast was all homemade and delicious. We were offered anything we could possibly have wanted....

Have stayed here 3 times over the years and never been in the least bit disappointed. It's absolutely wonderful in every respect: location, privacy, hosts, breakfast, and even Frank, the dog to greet you when you arrive
