“A taste of heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2010

After many summer vacations of trying to take in the glory of the out-of-doors while camping in tents along river banks and in mountain valleys -- I opted to enjoy the very cushy and spectacyular Lodge at Chilko Lake. This proved to be a very wise decision as each aspect of my trip tp Chilko Lake and the stay at the Lodge made for a truly wonderful holiday.
You start with a fun flight over the coastal range of mountains in British Columbia and land, almost out of nowhere, at the private air stip by Chilko Lake. If you havent used enough "ahhs" and "oooohs" on that flight there -- your jaw drops as you see the glimmering Chilko Lake ahead.
From the moment you set foot you are made to feel welcome and settling into this spacious, beautiful lodge is just more ice cream on a day full of deserts.
Yes - yes! We would definitly go back and recooomend this to our discerning travel friends.
