I have been lucky enough to stay here at the resort twice. The second time in a lakefront room - the best! The staff were wonderful, very welcoming and friendly. The accomodation was comfortable and the lodge very rustic and warm. We went horse riding and canoing out on the lake, very back to nature for me (in other words not too much for my comfort levels ;o) ) My friend and I went for a relaxing time to get away from the busy-ness of normal work lives and to regenerate our batteries. This was the perfect place for it, we took our books, our cameras andour bathing suits - the hot tub was lovely in the rain! One of my favourite memories was of the horses that were roaming in front of the main lodge - they were rolling in the sand and playing around out there having a great old time. My friend took a plane ride from the lake and said it was gobsmackingly wonderful and would reccommend it to everyone.
The only drawback to the lodge is the cost of the food - there are few choices so my friend and i found it expensive. The cost of the accommodation was fair enough, but the food made it more of an expensive stay.
We took the Duffy Lake road up north of Whistler to get there. If your car has a low chassis then I suggest going the Lilloet road instead, I drove my cavalier and on some of the roughest parts of the road we were travelling about 10 and 15 km as we kept bottoming out. The last part of the trip to Tyax is the best, the views are gorgeous, it's worth stopping every now and then (where the road permits) to take a look over the edge.
All in all, if you are looking for a get away in natural British Columbia this is the place to go. Beautiful.
