A very relaxing night away. In a beautiful spot. We had the Sunrise Room which had a beautiful view of the water. Your hostess Michelle is warm and welcoming and a fantastic cook. Satisfied overall, room in need of some new wallpaper but minor complaint. Very close to the beginning of the Queen Charlotte track. Would stay here again. :)
