Fodor's Review

This big, comfortable Canadian log house close to a tiny harbor on the Rausu side of the peninsula has soft beds and rooms with private sink and toilet. Wildlife photographs cover the walls, and you'll need a fish reference book to identify everything at the dinner that's included in the overnight price. Technically on the "wrong" side of the peninsula, this is a good, quiet alternative. Basic English is spoken, but faxed reservations are best. The same family owns sightseeing boats in Utoro, so guests can book discount cruises. It's 2 miles east of Rausu village but beware: car navigation systems guide you half a mile short.
