Woow! It is hard to know where to even start!
I am blessed to have opportunity to stay at Solitaire Lodge, when i didn't even dare to imagine that places like this exist in reality. Here you fall in love again, in your partner, nature, life! Ingrid and Wayne made this place a perfect getaway, such a serene nature, view from room is astonishing, lake and sky are perfect blue and lush greenery to rest your eyes. Room is beautiful and comfortable. Newly renovated bathrooms offer baths with view, so I would be spending whole day soaking in bath if not for divine food! It is amazing to get through 5 course dinner and be surprised with every taste again and again, combination, texture. With every new course i did not want to start eat, to not spoil picture perfect plate presentation. Chefs David and Mirai are amazing, smart and creating, class A. They have eye for detail and just perfect perfect amount of food to get through night being spoiled with fresh cuisine. To not even mention breakfasts, anything you can imagine. I better stop or i will become hungry :)
I don't know how to describe Solitaire experience shortly, but it is perfect in all seasons, even in bad weather. There is much things to do, early morning hot water beach excursion is my favorite. Whole experience is so refreshing. Staff is so friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed chatting evenings away with host Graham and owners. I felt better than at home, because i could relax and be sure that everything will be taken care of. Thank you so much for this memorable experience, beautiful people and astonishing place to stay. We will be back, definitely!
