We were fortunate enough to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary here. Beautiful setting. Porcupine Pie is off the main road. There is quite a narrow meandering path leading to the lodge. The lodge consists of a couple of cabins on a steep slope, spaced well apart from wach other. Very romantic, serene, peaceful and quite. Cabins are well equiped....
