When travelling, I always seek out restaurants that reflect the local culture. I'm a self-professed foodie, and throughout my travels, I've been fortunate enough to dine in some fantastic restaurants, including some with Michelin stars. With that being said, some of my favourite meals have been at Minette Bay Lodge. An absolute gem in our community. The food is superb, and the ambiance and service are outstanding. We've celebrated many milestones at Minette Bay and have stayed overnight for celebrations. Their bed and breakfast is a touch of England, with spacious rooms and large windows framed with chintz tapestries that look onto their impressive property. Their beds are luxurious with soft linens and cozy duvets, perfect for respite or staycation. When we have out-of-town guests, I often bring them to Minette Bay. All leave in awe of the property, the outstanding accommodation, and the gastronomical delights. Ruth and Howard are gracious and generous hosts who always go the extra mile.

Fantastic 3 night stay! Howard was an attentive and accommodating host and we enjoyed hearing his stories about the area and the local wildlife. Our room was lovely; the bed extremely comfortable; and the view over the front lawn to the water was amazing. The tastefully decorated common rooms, full of books and treasures, provided many cozy spots to curl up with a book. The grounds were peaceful and relaxing and there were some interesting walking trails to explore. We enjoyed sumptuous daily breakfasts and drinks on the terrace in the late afternoon. Overall, a delightful interlude in a beautiful setting.

Minette Bay Lodge was the perfect location for our daughter’s bridal shower! The lodge had a warm welcoming atmosphere and ample space for our party of 20. We were treated to a stunning array of cakes, cookies, macaroons and tea sandwiches. Ruth was also very accommodating to prepare a wide variety of tasty vegan treats as well! We enjoyed our tea in beautiful tea cups and had champagne circulating as well. The property provided a Picturesque background for Ruth to take photos of our group. Moments we will be able to look back and cherish forever. After the tea party a small group of us stayed the night in the very comfortable rooms upstairs. In the morning we were treated once again to amazing food by Ruth. Thank you Howard and Ruth for being such wonderful hosts! I’m so happy that we chose Minette Bay Lodge for our special celebration!

Dear Peter and Danielle, It was a pleasure to make you comfortable down here on Kitimat's snowy shorefront over the weekend, light the library fire and leave you to quiet contemplation, a good book and Ruth's home made fare.. We're delighted that you felt restored as you left for another week of work. We're looking forward to seeing you again. Yours, Howard and Ruth.

Our staycation weekend at Minette Bay Lodge was exactly what my husband and I needed to rejuvenate. To say the experience and hospitality was exceptional would be an understatement. Some highlights: Ms Ruth’s fabulous breakfasts and 4-course dinner, misty morning walks through their well-kept forest and shoreline trails, the welcome wine and graze board next to the crackling fire in the library, the luxurious feather bed, the soaker bath with a view, and quality unplugged time with each other. We will most definitely come for another stay!

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Minette Bay Lodge. Location is amazing. Decor makes you feel you are in some other part of the world. Howard and Ruth will make sure you feel perfectly at home and are by far the most hospitable owners you can imagine. If you ever visit this part of Canada, and need a place to stay, don't look further. This is it!

Tremendous hospitality, wonderful attention to detail made our 3 nights here something to remember for years to come. Ruth prepared fresh cinnamon buns, fruit plates, a variety of egg dishes, a delicious apple cake and much more for breakfast. Installed in front the fire, we also enjoyed a rich and diverse "aperitif" platter with wine in the afternoon. We also appreciated the tea served in the afternoon, after our walk along some of the many trails surrounding the lodge. Bravo Ruth and Howard!

Very relaxing atmosphere in this character building. Loads of trails and wildlife to see just steps away. Came to disconnect and definitely accomplished with this remote B&B that provides attentive service and food albeit at a premium price.
