My husband and I stay here for 2 nights last weekend (June 27-29th) We were able to book one of the cabins with a beautiful view of this gorgeous lake. We arrived at about 2 pm - I had asked for an early check-in but our room was not available. No problem - we decided to go for a paddle on the lake. Just fantastic! By the time we finished about an hour later our room was ready. It was very nice (Cabin 7) but actually smaller than I thought and for $625/night it was a bit of a disappointment. The Wifi is very sporadic which we knew would happen - you are in the wilderness. Anyhow we sat on the deck and had some bubbly that the hotel had left for us in the room which was very thoughtful as we were there to celebrate a special occasion. We had made reservations for dinner. The dining room is lovely with a great view of the lake but our food was not great at all. Both of us were very disappointed with the food both nights. No taste, tough pheasant and bison. I had the Sable fish the second night - it was cooked very well but there was no taste. The wine list is fairly good.... Breakfasts were better.
So - a fabulous location but they need to work on the food aspect in our opinion and again for the price you pay we expect more.
The staff was very friendly and we met some lovely people from all over the world.
Our hike to Consolation Lake with the staff naturalist was really fun. We also did the lake trail and the rock pile.
