They can each easily accommodate up to 4-7 people and an adjoining door can be opened up to accommodate larger groups. The lodge is angled so that is has a full view of the small picturesque lake and has some gorgeous sunsets to the west across the lake.
The area is filled with many outdoor adventures and activities to do. There are many types of adventures that can be found in the area, including hiking, site seeing, boating, blueberry picking, bird watching, wildlife sightings, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, 4 wheeling and the list goes on!
