After reading all the reviews I went in with very high expectations of the lodge. Some how my expectations were beyond exceeded! As soon as you arrive you are immediately given time to unload the car, unpack, and meet up with Lucas or Bonnie when you are settled in. This relaxed feeling never ended for us. Even with a nearly full lodge on the weekend we never had trouble finding time to use the kitchen. The pool table and lounge were also shared well by all. The speakers with a phone/mp3 player hookup was also very welcome. Each of us took turns having our own music. The lodge itself is host to many board games like Cranium, Trivial pursuit and card games like Crib. Lucas was extremely helpful with the surrounding area and I even saw him hand drawing maps for the other couples. Him and I happened to spot a pod of whales in the bay which we enjoyed from the awesome new deck. Right on the beach this place is a must for anyone looking to spend some time away from city life. The addition of wifi did help as I needed to keep in touch with work sadly. This is a very special place that is run by a group that really cares and it shows in all the recent upgrades and personal service. We will be going back as soon as our schedules match up. The breakfast is a must and they offer a wide variety of options. The sugar free gluten free pancakes were an unexpected treat! Do not miss out on Botinany Bay, Botanical Beach, Avatar Grove and the local beaches to watch the surfers. Great area, great lodge and great hosts. Do not pass up on any chance to stay here!
