Being born and raised on kipawa lake and knowing the Douglas family for the last 10 years, I truly know that they are some of the nicest, hard working people I know. They do an amazing job at constantly renovating cabins and making sure everything is in good running order for the guests. I would recommend Alwaki to anybody looking for a beautiful summer getaway. Alwaki lodge will always be a home away from home for me. Thanks guys for everything you've done for me in the last 10 years.
Great week. Made reservations for next year. Looking forward to it already.
Actually stayed last July 2015, then as I just booked a week for this year I remembered I didn't write a review. This was a return trip to Lake Kipawa after last coming up the year after my father passed in 1994. As a kid this was our yearly pilgrimage and back then we stayed in what used to be known as Turtle Camp. I always told stories to my son about those trips and I was delighted when he said he wanted to go this year. Then realization set it in and donned on me now I need to do some research after being away for 21 years and also I better do some maintenance on my 38 year old boat. I choose to stay at Alwaki since it was close to the area I knew the old Turtle Camp had been sold and I was glad I did.
What a difference, not that there was ever anything wrong with where we previously stayed but I was impressed right from the start. The cleanliness, overall upkeep of the cabins, friendliness and just a good natured attitude from our hosts was in evidence from the time we arrived till we left. Rob and Brian were very helpful with fishing tips, and questions I am sure they have heard a million times over but they never minded answering. These are folks who you can tell they truly enjoy what they do and will make you feel right at home. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
Another fantastic 2 weeks at the outpost cabin. Fishing was great and the peace and quiet was much needed! Thank you Brian, Tina, Rob, Stacy and Roy for all your hard work so your guests can enjoy your beautiful paradise! See ya next year!!!
