What people are saying about Island Point Lodge
"This was my first trip to Island Point, my husband's second. I gave 5 stars because it was definitely the trip of a lifetime for me. One of the best features of this lodge, compared to it's closest neighbors - is they have their OWN dock!
You do not have to rely on the tides, or anyone to beach your boat for you to get in int. No mud, no fuss! We also took advantage of the side trip fishing for salmon in the nearby river. WOW - was that fun! There could be some MINOR improvements made. Some of the fishing equipment needs some basic maintenance - boat seats, reels etc. The double mattresses need updated. The food was family style and above average - it's not an exquisite restaurant folks - but you certainly will not go away hungry! The staff were all friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled at their positions. We can't wait to come back!"
