To many, White Point Beach Lodge is their vacation home away from home. When the original lodge was destroyed by fire, in November 2011, the outpouring of support and call for its reconstruction, was global.
The building is designed to provide guests the White Point experience that evokes the rustic charm and honesty of the old lodge. This includes signature ocean views from every room and material textures – like beach stones picked from the property; rough sawn wood and heavy timbers milled locally, and custom metal work from just down the road. The authentic wood-burning fireplace creates an impressive visual impact and provides the atmosphere with its radiant heat, wood crackle sounds, and smell of wood smoke. These historic characteristics are complimented with more contemporary design features such as exposed structural steel and concrete.
The upper level includes a lounge, 3,000 square foot meeting and convention hall, and a 3,000 square foot dining hall, both served by a new, modern commercial kitchen. The lower level will feature a new pool and hot tub, fitness centre, games room and “kids’ zone”. Provisions will also be made for a spa and two barrier-free accessible rooms, all with signature White Point views.
The new lodge is designed to continue the great traditions at White Point, ensuring it remains a special place for visitors, guests and staff for generations to come.
