Dear Larry and Marlene,

Just wanted to tell you what a grand time Carol and I had during our stay at Caverhill Lodge. The food was elegant, and fully as delicious as it looked. Our cabin was clean, cozy, and attractive. And the fishing was a ton of fun! Standing in front of the map on your lodge door every morning trying to decide which of the many beautiful lakes we’d hike to that day made our visit seem like a pioneering adventure.

I’m no fanatic about big fish (never have been) but I do like action, and even on the slowest days we caught quite a few fish. On the best days, we caught scads of handsome Kamloops rainbows—frankly, I can’t imagine how you could catch many more during the period of time we fished.

And we sure saw and fished a lot of lakes. One day we ran a boat up the main lake, hiked to a smaller lake, crossed it in another boat, hiked up to another lake, crossed it in yet another boat, hiked a little further to yet another lake on which we wound up spending the day—the fourth lake we’d launched a boat on that morning. All that and yet it didn’t take very long to get clear up there with such short hikes and relatively small lakes.

It’s great just hiking up to a lake with only tackle and lunch in hand to find rowboats waiting in the water, easily launched from small docks. The trout weren’t big, but they were big enough to be fun! And we caught enough twelve- and thirteen-inchers to keep us on our toes. (I know we could have caught bigger ones at some of the lakes, but we weren’t worried about size). Some of the fish we caught were surprisingly strong—thirteen-inchers running hard and tearing line off a screaming reel? Making three or four such wild runs? I’d have trouble believing it if it weren’t my own reel that was doing the screaming.

Anyway, please feel free to share this letter with perspective clients. If they want to spend some time in pretty little cabins on a beautiful lake, eat wonderful food, and explore a variety of lovely little lakes containing aggressive dry-fly-loving Kamloops trout, I’d suggest they come to Caverhill Lodge.

I trust all is well with you and I wanted to thank you and your colleagues for the exceptional assistance in finalizing our arrangements to Caverhill Lodge.

The Caverhill Lodge is truly a Genuine Brand and can be recommended without hesitation. Marlene and Larry Loney and their associates are wonderful hosts. The experience was a rare delight with the fine cuisine, spectacular natural beauty and a personal style of hospitality and grace that is rarely found.

Caribou Helicopters provided on-time charter departures and arrivals from Kamloops and were very fair in their rates.

I hope to see you soon and all our best in the meantime.”

Dear Larry and Marlene,

I want to write to thank you both for a thoroughly enjoyable 5 day stay at Caverhill. Other than drive-through trips with stops at B.C.’s National Parks, this was the first time I experienced fishing in this part of Canada. And what fishing!!! Your Kamloops trout are fantastic.

My son, Jim, and I really enjoyed the peace and quiet, the beauty and serenity of the area, and the pristine lakes. We also appreciated the generous hospitality that you two show your guests, and especially the gourmet meals.

I hope you continue to maintain the quality experience you now offer your guests – it is one we’ll never forget.”

Sincerely, Your Friendly Alien,

Dear Marlene & Larry,

Can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our two night with you last week and that we are already talking about our time next July.

Everything you do at Caverhill is so well done, from the food, the decorating of the cabins & bath house, to your warm and friendly hospitality.

Many thanks again for making my first fishing trip a great one and sharing your part of “heaven” on earth with us.”

Dear Marlene and Larry,

Just a note to thank you for the wonderful week we spent at your Lodge this summer. We appreciated all the many things you did to make our stay so enjoyable. Our many pictures will remind us of the happy days on your lakes for years to come.”

P.S.: The smoked trout were great!

Peter and Shirley

Dear Larry & Marlene,

I’d like to thank you again for your gracious hospitality. I really enjoyed my trip with my father to your lodge several weeks ago. It made it really hard to come back to work in Seattle!

It especially makes a great place to stay when the hosts are friendly and go out of their way, as you do, to take care of their guests. It not only makes you great hosts, but also great people.

As I snack on the smoked trout (in between the bones…), I’ll think of Caverhill and how relaxing it was to be there. And I’ll question what I’m doing sitting most of the day at a desk in downtown Seattle!

Thanks for the great meals also. I kept saying to myself “I haven’t been so stuffed, so consistently day after day, since I was 10 or 12 years old.” I was lucky my suits still fit when I came back.

Thanks for an excellent stay at a wonderful lodge.”
