It doesn't get any better than this. We spent a long weekend at the Vagabond in a reunion with old colleagues from New Zealand, several European countries and the United States. Lori and Ken were terrific at helping us plan this event; finding us an exceptional chef, Caroline Green, organizing boat trips on the Columbia River, a gourmet picnic, chair... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights during our recent hiking vacation in the mountains. We have stayed in a number of lodges in the US and Canadian Rockies on many trips over the years, but the Vagabond is now our favorite. The owners, Ken and Lori, go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and... More

Driving across the Trans Canada, tired and wanting to be off the road, you wonder, "did I make the right call," booking a lodge that means MORE driving? That's a huge, "YES." the down feather-beds, the dead quiet, the breathtaking scenery, the warmth of hosts Ken and Lori and then, if they don't make the best damn breakfast west of... More

We spent four nights at the Vagabond Lodge in February. Ken and Lori adopted us and made us feel at home right away. There are ten rooms at the lodge, all filled with interesting guests. The room we had was very spacious and warm, the bedding very comfortable. We had delicious breakfasts, and what we didn't expect was also hot... More

We stayed for 8 days on a skiing trip and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt relaxed and at home. Ken and Lori who own and run the place are the best of hosts in a building that is relaxed, friendly and of very high quality. The rooms are comfy, the general areas large... More

I stayed here for a long weekend with my sister and my Dad (we are all grown adults). Ken and Lori are amazing hosts and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. Home cooked breakfasts and lunches were fantastic. My sister is on a gluten free diet and Lori would go out of her way... More

Our third stay at this fantastic lodge in the ski resort of Kicking Horse with an enviable location 200m from the main gondola. Ken and Lori are truly superb hosts who do everything in their power to make your stay as good as possible - restaurant bookings, weather reports, advice on ski routes and transport. The lodge is warm and... More

We were officially the last guests at the end of the autumn season. So we had this enormous lodge to ourselves. It was a fantastic location, and would be unbelievably convenient during the ski season as the gondola is a short stroll away. We had a couple of nights here on our way through to the Rockies. The guys were... More
