“The Most Incredible Trip”
Reviewed August 8, 2008

Slam dunk!

Susan and I have traveled the world's resorts and there has never been a more pleasurable, professional experience ever. The property is impeccably maintained, the staff over the top professional, the food is world class and the wilderness is, well wilderness! The fishing was great and a half day helicopter wilderness tour crowned the list.

We did not get a chance to sample the Spa but other guest praised the therapist on staff. We were having so much fun for the 5 days we stayed I never open my book that I brought along. That is not to say there is not ample time to sit back and enjoy the fireplace and serenity of the lodge.

Eagles, black bears with cubs, deer and fish in this most beautifully Northern rain forest, yet so close to the States, seemed impossible.

We live in Memphis, not exactly near the West coast of BC. Flying on Northwest Airlines we departed Memphis at 6AM and arrived the dock of the lodge at 3PM! Heck, I can not do that going to Florida.

Yeah, I know I am gushing but this is THE HIDDEN place to visit.

Enjoy and say hello to our pet rock on the back deck.

P.S. ask the lodge manager for the link to our photo web site for some "home movies" of our experience.

We stayed 4 days in August, and had a fantastic time, even in the one day of bad weather. Staff are genuinely friendly (how often do you get hugged goodbye at a hotel) and took a lot of trouble to talk to us, especially our sons, aged 10 and 12. Food was great, and service also - not intrusive, but attentive. Expensive break, but well worth it, we saw things you can't see every day - whales, seals, black bear, otters, in their natural environment. The hotel architecture is striking - rooms are standard hotel type, but the main area is a double-height wood panelled huge-windowed space with amazing views - perfect for relaxing after a day kayaking or scrambling on the forest trails.

  • Liked — The situation - only reachable by boat or float plane, deep in the wilderness
  • Disliked — Dim light in the bathroom - not very good for makeup!

Upon our arrival from a thrilling speed boat ride to the property which is inaccessible by land, this was a treasure. Everyone was wonderful here--just trying to make you happy. Food was lovely, personal, and beautifully presented. Rooms were spacious--no a/c, so request an eastern view. Hot tub was a welcome respite after hiking. Wish there were some flatter trails, though. Kayaking was really special--whale and eagle watching spectacular--skip the picnic lunch and request a real meal back at the resort before embarking on nature cruise. Could use a place to swim. Did not miss tv or phone.

From the moment we first saw the resort until we left six days later, we were never disappointed. The food was the equivalent of a four star restaurant at every meal. The offerings were varied and the presentation a delight. The staff was always available and ready to help as needed from aloe for sunburn to an evening of sea kayaking. We rarely have time to relax during the year and found this lack of computers, television etc a most enjoyable adventure. We were able to be as active or sedentary as we wished. The resort has a philosophy of encouraging first name use for both staff and guests and this turned out to be quite comfortable while dignified and respectful.We stayed six nights and managed to stay occupied however I would suggest four or five nights as the ideal with perhaps some time allotted for the city of Vancouver.To sum it up, this was an incredible experience. A setting that was as beautiful and serene as one could imagine coupled with first class service and food too good to describe.
