  • joanj's Profile Photo

    by joanj Updated Jun 24, 2005

    While on a very brief stopover in Hope, all was needed was a takeaway drink and sandwich.

    I had a delicious hot chocolate with the trimmings, plus a sandwich, which was eaten in the park on the opposite side of the road on picnic tables.

    The coffee house was packed to the rafters, delicious food on offer, both hot and cold, soups, sandwiches, cakes, hot food etc., plus a couple of easy chairs too as well as tables inside and out.

    For those of you who are interested, there is also an internet cafe housed in the coffee house premises.

    click here for info and pictures of the exterier and interier of the coffee house.

There really aren't any facilities to speak of here, the laundry area is so run-down I wouldn't set foot in it (or the showers). But this is such a pretty spot, it's still well worth a visit.Access to the resort is via an old logging road. It is steep and twisty and not for...
