What a place to visit. The experience of boating 45 minutes to this Lodge with all the beautiful scenery was outstanding. Peaceful and a lot of history.
Choices of activities a plenty including kayaking, fishing, hiking ( 1100acres of land ) through forests, boat trips, brilliant scenery or you can relax in the lodge and just enjoy the peace and views. Slept so well as no noise at night. Food etc beautiful. Fully solar powered and fresh spring water so you can live in the lap of luxury with all the city amenities but in a superb location. IF you are a hunter there are pigs and deer if you prefer to catch your own dinner.
