Sleeps 6 in A-frame open floor plan with 2 loft bedrooms (California king, double, trundle bed w/2 twin mattresses). Full well-equipped kitchen. Comfortable and spacious living/dining area that opens onto a large 750+ sq. ft. L- shaped deck overlooking the water. Deck equipped with 2 chaise lounges, dining table, cafe table, gas barbeque.

The Lodge is situated just above the beach with a panoramic view of the harbour and a view thru the harbour entrance of Vancouver Island mountains in the distance. Wildlife abounds. You may see bald eagles and many varieties of birds, deer down by the beach or out the kitchen window, sea lions, seals or an otter playfully swimming by, mink, and perhaps dolphins or a whale on the ferry ride over.
The Lodge is not as remote as it sounds, neighbors are within walking distance as is the Gorge Marina with restaurant, grocery, laundromat, gasoline, beautiful outdoor swimming pool & hot tub overlooking the harbour/marina.
