Fall time at the Lodge is always exciting.  School kids arrive and get to explore Vancouver Islands rivers, mountains, lakes and ocean.  One can walk around the property and fill up on fruit and berries as they come ripe and so much more.  Call 250-286-3122 for more information about the abundant activities available at the Lodge.

Its a great day for a drive on one of Vancouver Island's most scenic highways, #28.  While you're driving why don't you stop by and have an ice cream and beverage.
