The private Japanese wood-fired hot-tub beside our dome made our weekend, it was heavenly. The dome was beautiful but lacked a few things in the kitchen that we desired like a toaster, teapot and pepper grinder. While the pellet stove kept us cozy and warm during the day we had to turn it off at night as it was loud...

We stayed in a cottage (Robin's nest), it was wonderful, and relaxing...the cabin was cozy and had everything we needed. It was quiet, no tv, unlimited supply of wood for the stove, and even with other cottages and domes in the vicinity it felt as if we were far away from anyone else. Will be going back for sure!

We stayed in the dream dome it was wonderful. Myself being a city girl and hubby being a country boy this was the perfect balance! It was truly remarkable! Well worth the wait and booking again for next year!

We just arrived from a weekend at Ridgeback Lodge, one word to describe our weekend was PERFECT. We stayed in Dream Dome 1. From the moment when you walk in the "door" you feel at peace, completely relaxed and "unplugged". We put our phones away for the weekend except to snap a few pictures. It rained the entire weekend and...

We stayed in the dream dome. It had everything we needed for our stay and none of the things we didn't need. We didn't leave the area. It was the perfect two night getaway for us. We were able to just relax and enjoy our time in this secluded private setting.

We spent three nights of our two week "Right Coast" adventure at Ridgeback Lodge. We let our "google machine" do the work taking us on the long road there but truly a worthwhile drive. The colours only an artist could attempt to speak about. The location is perfect, close to everything or close to nothing. The owners story will only...

We loved our stay in the Dream Dome at Ridgeback Lodge. It was the perfect way to spend our honeymoon: a chance to disconnect, truly relax and recuperate after such a busy year. The staff are amazing, super helpful and easy to find when you need them, otherwise you don't see them at all. They really take guest's privacy seriously....
