Having arrived an hour later than we'd intended (we got the hour time change wrong traveling from Alberta) Rosewitha couldn't have been more welcoming and we really enjoyed our one night here. Sitting on the lovely patio watching the humming birds was stunning (despite the mosquitoes). We really enjoyed talking to fellow guests over breakfast the next morning which was... More

We stayed (2 families of 4) 2 nights at the Kapristo lodge. Despite arriving late, around 10.15, our host Roswitha was very welcoming. The rooms were very spacious with huge, comfortable double beds and breakfast was both plentiful and delicious. The property is located about 45minutes from Lake Louise, but the local town Golden is a destination on its own.

Had a lovely 1 night stay at Kapristo Lodge. Very very welcoming host, and fabulous communal breakfast - chance to meet other guests. Special Bear shaped pancakes for the kids was a lovely touch. Do note that this is a Lodge (not a Hotel) so it did feel like staying in someone's home - but that was part of the... More

Perfect place to tay. Just outside of town, beautiful surroundings, excellent staff, immaculate cleanliness and delicious food. Will return, its an incomparable value in general but especially when compared to the places in town. Make the short drive and stay here, you wont be disappointed. Wish I could have stayed longer.

This is a very attractive property about 12 minutes south of Golden up a gravel driveway but worth the effort. The house is impressive and filled with interesting pictures and pottery and surrounded by a lovely property. Completely quiet. We had two adjoining rooms with a bathroom between (the wolf room ). A beautiful sun room is available to guests,... More

No matter when we call, Rosewitha is always great. She has the best place to stay in Golden. Hot tub situated outside on a romantic deck. Gorgeous scenery!! Love this place, wouldn't go anywhere else! Kicking Horse Mountain close by. Perfect.

We reserved the family room. It says 1 room for our couple and 1 room for our daughter with a bathroom for both of us and between the 2 rooms. Nice, clean and big. We could prepare every day (we staid 5 days) our sandwiches as the kitchen was open free. Staff was nice, helpful and effecient. Place to recommend... More

This place is a nice fusion of smaller woodwork hotels in the European Alps and a Canadian-style lodge. Really nice wood and rock work in an open-concept layout that the owners have obviously put their hearts and souls into. The patio alone is worth the visit. Clean, big rooms, my wife and daughter really liked it too. The owners are... More

Roswitha and Willy have been at this a while and you can tell. They have a comfortable style and relaxed way that lets you know you're welcome, and all you need to do is ask... they've got it covered. This wonderful alpine lodge just minutes south of Golden B.C. and the incredible Kickinghorse Resort is a bit of a flashback... More
