Since we were not use to this type of lodge we were surprised at 4 things. No air conditioning, no shampoo, check out at 10:30am and breakfast was done being served by 9 am. It was our own fault I guess for not asking. Rooms are small without a tv. BUT if you LOVE a bath like I do.... They... More

Nice rooms, comfortable beds, close to Yoho NP. Very friendly owners. You can also book a rafting adventure in this B&B. Nearby highway but still pretty quiet. Not in city centre. We saw some deers in the garden.

This is a lovely lodge with lots of homely extras like the cabinet of antique toys and dolls and home quilted bed spreads . We didnt see many other guests but we were only there overnight after a long drive. There was tea and coffee making facilities in the communal lounge and a lovely breakfast in the morning.

Quaint, friendly, clean and comfortable place to spend time! Breakfast was consistently delicious, warm and fresh with a nice variety for everyone. Interesting and friendly guests from countries afar! Right in the lap of the best rafting opportunity with capable and entertaining guides every time. Do yourself a favor - go!

This was a wonderful place to stay! Brad, the owner was so accommodating as well as his staff. The rooms were clean, comfortable and homey and the breakfast was delicious! We were in the area for 6 days and this lodge was our favorite. They also offer rafting trips which we totally enjoyed! Would definitely return!

We were the from Sunday July 7th- Tuesday July 9th for the beginning of our honeymoon. I couldnt have asked for a better lodge to spend our time at. The staff was so friendly and welcoming.

We had a very enjoyable 2-day stay at this quaint, cozy lodge/B & B! The rooms were clean, quiet and far surpassed our expectations. It is located 5 minutes from town, has amazing views of the mountains all around, beautifully kept grounds and flowerbeds with chairs and benches on the property for a quiet read or just a relaxing break...

Our only motivation to book this lodge was because we were going river rafting with the Wet n Wild group and they had this lodging option on their website. The lodge also accommodates their office (think it's the same people running both). We only had to stay for a night before moving on. Much to our surprise, we were glad... More

We stayed at the Mclaren Lodge for one night after our days rafting with Wet and Wild. The lodge was extremely characterful and comfortable. It had excellent facilities and offered a lovely breakfast. It maybe out of the central town area but is at most only a five minute car drive away. The average reviews do not give this lodge... More
