When we arrived at Pinewood Lodge we were pleasantly surprised to see some deer in the adjacent, forested area beside the parking lot.
We arrived on May 1 for a much needed get away. The reception was warm and welcoming- very helpful. Our room was spectacular- we were in a corner luxury suite-the view was breathtaking- one window overlooked Dorothy Lake and the other faced the parking lot- forest area- The deer were there every day.
In our suite- we had a full kitchen, gas fireplace, 2 person jacuzzi tub, living room area, separate bedrooom area, lots of closet and storage space.
This lodge was obviously built to last- beautiful, massive wood beams- with a rustic splendour.
Pinewood Lodge is both a wilderness sanctuary and a spa retreat in Whiteshell Provincial Park. It is right in the middle of the North Whiteshell Trans Canada Trail-great opportunities for
hiking and wildlife sightings- we saw a beautiful fox on the trail.
The spa area had a salt water pool, salt water jacuzzi, steam sauna and exercise room-which was such a treat- both soothing and invigorating.There were floor to ceiling windows- which offered a great view of the outdoors.
They don't have a dining room but you can order from their room service menu- we had a delicious freshly made (on site) pizza.
We had a great continental breakfast-lots of choices-
They have a great gift shop- anything from bathing suits to butter- lots of fishing gear etc
This is one of the nicest places in the Whiteshell
Needless to say- we will return- again and again
