Sewall Lodge

While flying over Graham Island in the Queen Charlotte Islands ( British Columbia, Canada ) you will find many patches of areas without trees. Large squares of earth only showing ground litter the landscape as far as the eye can see. For decades on end, trees were chopped down to feed the numerous sawmills of the Queen Charlotte islands. Today, you can still see some large sawmills operating around Port Clements just across the inlet from Sewall.

Sewall however is an old small sawmill town. And while the mill is still occasionally active, only two people still work there. Sewall has changed but people still need places to spend their leisure time at. Welcome to Sewall Lodge! This location is a great get away destination because there is a beautiful sandy beach along the shoreline. And it's one of the only beaches in the Masset inlet area where people come to swim at when summer time arrives. All year long though people come here to fish, hike and hunt or just to get away from the mainland. When the camp first started there were only a few small cabins. Then a few small houses came along and then some larger ones. But soon, the word spread about the beauty and unique location to be found here so the small holiday houses were not enough for the growing number of people who came to visit. The owners decided to build a log cabin lodge that could accomodate more people and once it was built, more guests arrive each year to spend time enjoying the locations scenic splendor.

However, Sewall Lodge is isolated and will need to be supplied by air and boat. The airstrip is sufficient in length for bush operations and there is a floatplane ramp on the beach that can be used to and from the water. A hangar facility for lodge and aircraft maintenance was built recently and mechanics are on call.
