Jean Paulson Lodge

Rental Application and Policies

JPL midThe building of the original Jean Paulson Lodge started in 1988 and opened in 1990.  Expansion started in June 2006 and this major upgrade was finished in 2014.  Many thanks to all the volunteers and to the Nechako-Kitimaat Development Fund, Burns Lake Kinsmen and Lakes District Maintenance – it could not have been done without any of them.
We now offer a full service building that is suitable for meetings, parties, family reunions, weddings or any type of get-together.  There is a fully furnished kitchen, audio-visual equipment, tables with a capacity for 97 people in the main room plus a separate small meeting room (13 people) with projector and screen.  And we have a great outdoor area for any type of activity.


The Jean Paulson Lodge is open for bookings for 2022. Please take note of the current PHO order specific to Northern Health when booking dates. We expect that renters will understand and follow the PHO orders and will adapt accordingly if the orders change at the time of booking. If the order no longer allows your event, we will fully refund any payments or deposits towards your booking. Thank you for your understanding and support!
