We stayed for one night while walking the Queen Charlotte Track. This was one of our best two stays along the Track. Blue Water Lodge is run along the lines of a B&B rather than the slightly larger resort style of accommodation available along the track and of course much nicer than a backpackers. We had a double ensuite room...

We had an amazing few days staying with Rod. He took us out on a free fishing trip and we both caught our first fish, saw dolphins swimming around the boat, and he dropped us off at Ship Cove so we could walk some of the Queen Charlotte Track. His cooking was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed eating the fish...

A really comfy and great place to stay. The scallop entree was the freshest and best and definitely well enjoyed. Rod is an excellent host and the three course meal was more than appreciated.

We (couple from New Zealand) stayed at Blue Water Lodge for three nights in early January 2016. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would highly recommend it. The Lodge is nestled up in the hills above Endeavour Inlet, surrounded by native bush (and wildlife) and with amazing views over the water. The nearby jetty and beach is good for...

We are so pleased we chose to stay here. Rod was a great host. Very considerate and friendly. Very knowledgeable about the local environment and about world affairs. Waking up to see dolphins feeding in the Sound, Wekas on the deck and the beautiful bush all around was a real treat. We have already recommended Rod's place to many other...

As a group of 6 ranging in age from 22 to 68, we couldn't have had a better stay than at Blue Water Lodge. The memory of the view from the deck will sustain us through the winter months. Rod was simply terrific and prepared us a 5-star meal including scallops and roasted wild boar that he'd hunted himself, leaving...

With no idea of what to expect we were seriously impressed. Rod is as hospitable as anyone could possibly expect and cooked us by far the best meal we had on the QC track - including a starter of scallops hand caught by him just off the lodge. The 4 of us had the lodge to ourselves and we felt...

We found Blue Water Lodge to be an excellent refuge for trekkers. We walked into the lodge completely drenched and tired. Rod immediately served us with piping hot tea and had the clothes horse near the fireplace for our wet clothes etc. The accommodation could not have been more relaxing and comfortable.

We stayed two nights at The Blue Water Lodge with 3 friends and had the whole lodge to ourselves which made it very cosy. The lodge is beautifully set on a steep hillside overlooking Endeavour Inlet. The view from the large deck and from the rooms onto the inlet is amazing. The three course dinner prepared by Rod was delicious....
