The Peace Country of Northern BC shares a special place in the hearts of many. After recently moving here myself, I have found that I am growing to love it here as well. My name is Erin, and some co-workers and I decided to do a little exploring around our area. One of the places we went to was the Williston Lake Resort, near Hudson's Hope.
The Peace Country boasts nature's delights: plentiful fields, snow capped mountains, rolling hills, lush forests and sparkling lakes—my co-workers and I were amazed at the scenery.
As soon as we entered the lodge, I loved it right away. The Williston Lodge was built in the traditional log cabin style, with each of its logs hewn by hand for a beautifully seamless fit. The lodge is a work of art.
Not only is it beautiful, but the lodge is an excellent place to vacation and recharge, as it offers many lounging areas, including a large, sun-drenched balcony that is perfect for reclining. I felt like I was on an exotic island somewhere, just soaking up all those UV rays. It was great and wonderfully relaxing.
The Lodge offers a lot of activites that I didn't have time to do, but would have loved to. In the summer, there is fishing, horseback riding, ATV adventures and hiking. Winter guests who enjoying skiing or snowboarding will have the opportunity to ski the local mountains and enjoy the fresh powder. During the winter season there is also snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross-country skiing and wildlife observation.
The Williston Lodge Resort is a gem that sparkles in the Peace and draws travelers from far and near. After spending a short visit to the lodge, I was beckoned back for a second stay.
