Had a great 4-day stay at LBLR earlier this month, and only wish it could have been longer. The lodge is a beautiful facility. We stayed in one of the beachfront rooms on the ground level, so just had to walk out the door and through the patio to get to the beach. We had spectacular weather the whole time we were there. I understand that this is not always the case, but it seems like this would be a great place to stay under any weather conditions.
We were extremely impressed with the staff. All of the young women at the front desk and the restaurant were just wonderful -- friendly, cheerful, helpful and informative. That really helped to make the stay a special experience. Also, Josh is a great tour guide -- very knowledgeable and informative. The boat trip on the Sound was super. We did not happen to see any bears or whales on this trip but the scenery is spectacular, and it was a super day to see the sights and learn about the area and the native culture.
Restaurant in the lodge serves a terrific continental breakfast, as well as cooked-to-order items. Had breakfast there every morning, and a very nice dinner as well.
Facility, food, atmosphere, location (and of course, the weather!) were great.
