What an amazing destination. Not only is this remote location fairly easy to access but it offers visitors the opportunity to experience nature at its most pure and picturesque. From the warm and welcoming staff members to the beautiful architecture of the lodge itself, Tenahead is a place I will be returning too for all of my life. We could not have asked for a more beautiful, breath-taking or... Read more

Our stay at Tenahead was much more than we had anticipated. Everyone from top management down were so helpful and kind. Nothing was too much trouble.Thank you all for a most enjoyable time.

A beautifully designed lodge, remotely situated and thrills getting there.Designed for tranquil times.We stayed two nights mid-journey, but it would make a special destination for, say, a week to read, walk, enjoy the scenery, perhaps work on a project.Warm people, atmosphere, log fires. Great for a private party but not if you about to party!Highly recommended.
