See other reviews for an in-depth and accurate description of this astonishing Lodge. Our family of five (older and young adults) spent two days at the end of a "Canadian Excursion" at the Lodge. We should simply have stayed at Mt. Engadine Lodge the entire time. The service, the food, the rooms, the entire physical living space was simply excellent and the staff very personable - but it is the physical place that is truly remarkable. Set at the edge of a meadow, and with stunning views of towering rock mountains, the Lodge is a naturalists window. Wildlife is everywhere. Make no mistake - if you need a cell phone, television, radio, computer, or other electronic connection to make your day complete - this is NOT the place for you. If you like nature "sanitized", "tamed" or "sprayed into submission", this is NOT the place for you. This is a very, very comfortable Lodge inside, with an up close and uncontrolled view of nature outside. If you enjoy a natural setting, fantastic food and meaningful conversations - along with a night sky full of stars, this is truly a wonderful experience, Trails are everywhere, and the staff will make excellent recommendations. Most guests spend the entire day out hiking - with the evenings in conversation about where they went and what they saw; or watching the moose and wildlife from the deck. It is a special lifetime experience worth the effort (and the drive) to make.
