This year my mother came to visit me and after visiting with friends and shopping she really needed a break from the city. So we looked around and found Yellowpoint Lodge. We had no idea how lucky we were to get a last minute booking but it became abundantly clear as soon as we got there. The lodge is gorgeous and has so much character, the staff are so friendly and helpful. The clientele is definitely older and they don't allow children under 14 but it makes for a very relaxing time. We didn't realise at first that the price included all your meals and because my mother can't have gluten we were a bit worried about that. We needn't have worried, we let the staff know and they were so accommodating. The food was wonderful for me and my mother. We stayed in the barracks on the first night and the staff emphasized us how rustic it was to the point where we were a bit hesitant. But they were lovely, a part of the wall swings right out and the ocean is all you see from bed. It is a very basic room and the bathrooms are shared but the bed are comfortable, the view is unparalleled and I loved it. We went kayaking (no extra cost), sat in chairs looking over the ocean, played scrabble, drank wine, walked the trails, sat by the fire. It really was such a wonderful time, and I can see why people go back every year. Although we were new faces, and there weren't many, everyone made us feel very welcome and at home. I can't say enough good things about Yellow Point Lodge, it's the perfect way to enjoy the west coast.
