Truly a home from home. One of our favourite places to return time and time again. The welcome is always warm. The food is always delicious. There are games and books in the common areas and always someone to play with or talk to if you choose. Rooms are comfortable.

They continually ask for the time amid their play. Annabelles stand on their tip toes, eagerly looking for animals. Kaeleb alternates from a lesson on glaciers to eagerly watching ...
... where all the muscles and nerves were attached. In the woods, we passed a tree that bears had used for scratching, and then saw a permanent bear path. When we saw the video of our trip, Mike, the naturalist, was showing the kids the permanent bear path. He was talking about habits and asked the children what a habit was. Sophie responded, "something you do over and over." Mike asked ...
... whale" and we all went on the deck to try and catch a glimpse. Little did we know that Bartlett Cove was a Vegas buffet for whales. There were 4-5 humpback whales in the cove spouting and diving and feasting. In every direction you could hear them spouting before you could SE them. We paddled across the bay at low tide and along the far coast trying to get close to the whales. We did get close ...
