Dawson Creek, Accommodation

We just spent the most wonderful weekend of peace and tranquility and disconnect from the modern world of technology at Torwood Lodge
just 2 hours away from Dawson Creek.
It was a much-needed weekend to get away from our usual routines that include TV, phones and computers and busy schedules that leave little time for relaxing.
The lodge is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with Williston Lake in the front yard. Wow! A scenic drive from Dawson Creek, to Hudson's Hope and a few miles farther takes you to wilderness paradise!
We couldn't have chosen a better time of the year either. Fall was in full bloom with leaves of orange, red and yellow. The air was fresh and cool and clean and smelled of spruce trees and cold water. We played golf and hiked and sat and soaked up the sounds of the lake and the forest and thoroughly enjoyed being catered to by really friendly staff.
We could have gone fishing and for a horseback ride and next time we hope to.
We ate like royalty and slept in big comfy beds way past our usual morning routine. We will definitely go again next year!
