The following are the most common coverages that wilderness lodges need to protect themselves from legal liability and other business risks.

Commercial General Liability Insurance

This is standard policy for all businesses and is the coverage that helps the owners sleep better at night. If the number of guests is injured or claims they were injured due to your lodge’s negligence, CGL policy can provide coverage for lawyer’s fees, defence costs, out-of-court settlements, and awards for damages if that guest decides to pursue a legal claim. CGL policy can also cover you for lawsuits alleging property damage, libel/slander, and false advertising.

Additionally, if your wilderness lodge serves or provides alcohol, you will need extension policies, such as liquor liability, added to your CGL coverage. Otherwise, you can be held liable for the actions of intoxicated guests who cause injury or property damage.

Property Insurance

Because of their isolated locations in natural environments, wilderness lodges and resorts are vulnerable to a number of extreme weather events and natural disasters such as forest fires, flash floods, lightning strikes and more. Property insurance is vital for protecting your structures and contents. Without it, your investment could be lost overnight.

Business Interruption

This type of coverage can protect your resort’s income by reimbursing you for lost revenues in the unfortunate event that an insured peril causes you to close down your wilderness lodges for repairs.

Boiler & Machinery / Equipment Breakdown Insurance 

If, for example, an electrical storm damages an HVAC unit or an electrical generator, which in turn causes financial losses, boiler and machinery insurance can cover the cost or losses.

Hull & Machinery + Protection & Indemnity Insurance

If your lodge owns boats or watercraft of any type, a hull and machinery policy can protect your investment in case of damage. Protection and indemnity coverage can protect you from legal liability if one of your boats is involved in a collision claim or a named peril in the water and/or if a passenger is injured.
