Little Miss Sunshine (Coast)

JULY 8TH, 2010

Little Miss Sunshine (Coast)

Summering with Clooney on Lake Como is in your five-year plan, but until that happens make Sakinaw Lake Lodge your second home for holidaying.

Only an hour north of Langdale, the off-grid lodge is as lakeside as it gets. Hosts Liza and Garrett, young, hip and hospitable ex-Vancouverites, ferry you over on their pontoon cruiser with a glass of wine. The spacious second storey Cedar Suite, steps from the water, features a fully equipped kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, claw foot tub, private deck and big windows for lake and mountain views.

A hot breakfast is provided (lemon ricotta pancakes anyone?) or rent out the whole lodge with friends and prep all your own meals in the outfitted outdoor kitchen.

While just gazing at the pristine water is entertainment enough, a world of water sports, like kayaking, tubing and hot tubbing, are also there for the taking, not to mention our favourite activity—fireside chats over smores.

From $269 a night, Sakinaw Lake Lodge, Sakinaw Lake Rd., Pender Harbour, 604-341-1720,
