Queen Charlotte Lodge is heaven on earth. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit QCL on more than one occasion, and they never cease to amaze. Anticipating guest’s needs and fulfilling them seems to be seamlessly engrained in all staff, without fail.

    If you want a great fishing adventure and vacation, this is the place for you! I can’t say enough about the organization and planning that goes into making each person’s stay special. Anything you need is taken care of. The staff are friendly and seem to truly care that you are well cared for. The food they provide is the quality you would find in an upscale restaurant, and there is plenty of it. Our fishing guide Luke was so helpful and fun. He made it easy for me, a novice fisherman, to be successful and feel that I could do anything. I would highly recommend this resort to others, and can’t wait to go back myself!
