What does a lodge mean to you?
When we started our journey, we surveyed several people in our community and asked what a lodge represents to them. Their answers were consistent in the atmosphere, feeling, and love that comes from a lodge. We have taken all of these answers to heart and we cannot wait to share how we translated the quotes below into our food and space.
"Hanging out at a lodge makes me feel happy and together with people I enjoy! It also makes me feel calm and peaceful because I am away from the grind and my typical day to day! All in all, a lodge makes me think of the people closest to me and that I want to spend quality time with them in a cozy destination."
"Hanging in a lodge makes me feel at home in a place that is meant for people to gather, relax, and enjoy in a beautiful rustic and moody setting. A wholesome down to earth feel."
"Like I’m part of a grand tradition."
"A place of comfort after a fun day! Warm, inviting, good drinks, and poutine. Friends, fire, and freedom."
"Hanging out in a lodge is a time to consider the day, cheers with new friends and old, and relax!"
"Hanging out at the lodge is probably my favorite part of a trip. Nothing better than getting buzzed with good drinks and good food."
"When I am hanging out in a lodge I am excited. Excited to debrief the happenings of the day. Excited to talk a little trash. Excited to have some beers. Excited to plan the next events."
"Warm, cozy, rustic."
"Love hanging at a lodge. Makes me feel relaxed and content. Love the feeling of being with family and friends in a comfortable, warm environment. Simplicity."
