The spirit of Bonniebrook Lodge was born out of the hospitality of the Chaster Family whose original home was located near this site. As the only year-round residents of the area, the Chasters would invite summer cottagers over to enjoy a nice home cooked meal and some west coast hospitality. When their home was destroyed by fire in the 1920’s, they decided to build a larger residence which would be better suited for hosting guests. Built in 1929, Bonniebrook Lodge has entertained countless visitors from all over the world and provides a unique vantage point on the heritage of the region.
