Blue Water Lodge was the venue of my first night's sleep on the 4 day hike on the Queen Charlotte Track. I was the only guest that night, and had a wonderful room with outstanding views. The food was excellent. Rod was really interesting, friendly, and helpful, and is passionate about and highly committed to the environment; it is quite apparent that he really loves the area and wants his guests to love it too. A young French lady was helping him with the work when I was there, and I was delighted that she and Rod ate dinner with me almost like we were a family. I found this particularly enjoyable.
