Your host at Belize River Lodge Mike Heusner & Marguerite Miles, welcome you to their Lodge and home.
Most people are quite impressed with the construction of the well kept Lodge as it was built from solid mahogany and is situated in a colorful tropical setting among the palm, coconut, mahogany, logwood and mango trees. Many native trees were left in place around the Lodge for atmosphere and shade.
The Lodge is located just ten minutes from the Belize International Airport, approximately 10 miles north of Belize City, and 4 miles up-river from the Caribbean Sea.The Lodge can accommodate up to sixteen people.
The Guest House is a two story mahogany building which contains four rooms, each with two single beds, private hot and cold showers, ceiling fans, and screened verandas overlooking the Belize River.
The Cottage is set up for two groups of two or for a family of four. Each room has separate hot and cold showers, ceiling fans, and two single beds. Both are separated by a connecting door and share an open veranda.
One of the cottage rooms has a cozy sitting area. The Bungalow has two rooms, each with a double & a single bed, private hot and cold shower, ceiling fan, a/c, and a large screened veranda.
All of the Lodge rooms are air conditioned and decorated with a tropical Belizean ambiance. When you return from fishing, fresh water and ice will be ready in your room, and your bed will be turned down for you during dinner.
The main Lodge houses a large porch with a fly tying desk and self service bar, comfortable lounge and dining room where you can find some of the finest dining and socializing in Belize. After a good day on the water, drinks, appetizers and stories are shared on the veranda.
Belize River Lodge offers warm hospitality, great food, amusing tales and a history lesson if you want it. Everyone at the lodge is absolutely great.
Belize River Lodge operates two great fishing locations in two beautiful and unique settings ; From the Lodge and From Long Caye Outpost.
