The lodge itself, while recently renovated, dates from the same era. A handsome, airy building, complete with pub and restaurant, spa and outdoor pool, it sits on a -hectare island where Lovesick and Stony meet. A modest inn for loggers who rode the waters en route to the lumber mills was first built in 1857. After it burned down, Burleigh Island Lodge emerged at the turn of the last century. Its only rival for seniority, Viamede Resort on Stony Lake, went up in 1870. But it, too, fell victim to a fire, with the elegant current version of the “Grand Lady” resurrected in 1909.
