My husband and I stayed at Blachford Lake Lodge in Point Cabin over the March break, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The people at the lodge were so friendly and helpful, and organized great activities. You could choose to participate in the activities or just enjoy the trails and property on your own.
We saw the aurora a few evenings, and staff would be on Aurora duty and wake you up when they saw it. The Point Cabin was a few minutes’ walk from the lodge, but not an inconvenience at all, it was nice to have our own personal space away from the lodge. There was an outhouse right next the cabin, and the view was INCREDIBLE! You could see the sunrise right from cabin window.
Blachford lodge was a wonderful experience and I would love to visit again in the summer.

Our winter season (January to April) offers great opportunities to watch the aurora (northern lights), to go snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking, ice-fishing or simply to relax in the hot tub.Our summer season (June to October) offers great fishing. Canoe or kayak under the midnight sun (June/July) or hike one of the many nature trails. By late summer (mid August) the aurora becomes more visible again and one can watch the northern lights being reflected in the water.
