January 26 2013, my boyfriend and I wanted a little getaway and he had just purchased his first new sled and wanted to use it to the max before going back to James Bay for work. My dad spoke about auld Reekie Lodge, didn’t take him too serious about how amazing this place was... Well we were SOOOOO wrong!! While we were on our way to the lodge, there was 2 young men packing down the trail told us to watch out for a little tree that had fallen on to the trail and they are to remove it. (Thank you again guys!! Even though it wasn’t a huge tree lol)
After a 7hrs ski-doo trip, we were greeted by all the ladies in the lodge; the two daughters’ greeted us with smiles and were every professional! We went to change for dinner and our room was nice and warm and very cozy! Beautiful view of the lake!
We went back to the lodge to have a well-deserved drink! And Dianne and her mom were wonderful!! Very down to earth and very pleasant had a few drinks and chatted with the family, I couldn’t believe the atmosphere and the friendliness of everyone!
The DINNER!! Am 5’3 and 100lbs and I’ve been with my boyfriend for 6yrs and I have never finished my dinner he couldn’t believe his own eyes! I cleared my plate!!!!
(We went to a restaurant 2 weeks before “that is known for steak” THIS OVER PASSED it!!) I did not want to share nor give my leftovers to him, THAT GOOD! And dessert Yummy!! If I could rate the food you all would have 10 stars in my books!
The next morning, they all greeted us with good morning and Diane knew we wanted coffee LOL had a fresh hot cup waiting for us! Breakfast was as good as dinner the way we wanted it! The best part was having conversations with everyone even the grandfather! (Sorry for not sharing my dessert haha) We gassed up and said our goodbyes and just was we were out the door the there was a little voice saying goodbye to us (the littlest one on the bunch) that put a big smile on our faces.
We will defiantly be going back again this summer, this time with our four-wheeler
Thank you for the great night! We couldn’t have asked for better!!
