This location is REALLY ideal. Stayed here about a dozen times over the years. About as good of a location as you can find on the North Shore. Not too far away from 'civilization' and yet still close to a multitude of different vacation locations and activity options! GREAT as a "base-camp" for day trips. Scores of waterfalls and beautiful cascades within a reasonable drive and even walking distance, as Cascade River adjacent to the property. You can also visit nearly limitless incredibly beautiful hiking trails nearby.
We stayed in the lodge this time. Had a wonderful fire in the rustic main floor common area's floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Very relaxing, long ago-era atmosphere. The staff are extremely well mannered and you can sense their true sincerity of trying to help out as best they can. The owners work very hard at not just hiring people, but hiring the 'right' people.
If you are looking for a 5 star spa and luxury experience - stay at one that focuses on that. Not here. You can probably stay in your own city to get that experience. But for a "North Shore Adventure" (as we call them in our home) this is your place to start it off from!
