We just spent 3 days at this lovely lodge. The owner and staff (especially Virginia) are personable and helpful regarding local activities and wildlife; the food idelicious; and the wildlife sublime! We watched whales from the dining room during our first breakfast - a great way to start our day and visit to Brier Island. We also saw an eagle that morning in front of the lodge from our room! The zodiac whale watching that day was terrific. We followed a mother and calf and saw another whale as well as birds (including a few puffins), seals and dolphins. We returned to the Brier Island Lodge for an amazing dinner including mussels, scallops and more! The following day we watched a whale incredibly close to our zodiac for many close up views! I strongly recommend Brier Island and the Brier Island Lodge to whale watchers, bird enthusiasts and hikers.
