About Us

A Century of Family Traditions

Loch Lyme Lodge was originally a large (200 acre) farm. The main house was built in 1784 and today houses our dining rooms and sitting room. In 1917, the farm was sold and converted into a bed and breakfast, with the cabins being constructed between the 1930s and the 1970s. The Barker family bought the property in 1946 and ran the lodge until they sold it to the Pinnacle Project in 2006, who continue to operate the Lodge in much the same manner as it has been.


Many of our guests return year after year with their families, and some have been coming for generations!
