Ken and Lori are wonderful hosts! The Vagabond is a such a comfortable and warm place to stay while at Kicking Horse. Fantastic amenities, from the ski room with boot dryer to the great hot tub as well as the fireplace. Warm breakfast and lunch included, clean rooms and a wonderful location. Hard to beat!

My husband and I stayed at the Vagabond Lodge for a week, including New Years Eve. Lori and Ken, the owners, have put so much love into ever detail, from the beautifully decorated common areas and nooks, to the comfy rooms and hand-built stone fireplace. They offer wonderful breakfasts and hardy lunches daily and are quick to help with every... More

The best place in kicking horse hands down! My wife has a dairy and gluten allergy and they made her feel right at home. The accommodations are very comfortable from big comfy beds to nights around the common fire, the hot tub is great to with a sauna right beside. The food is second to none and recommend eating breakfast... More

Close to downhill trails and easy access to mountain bike trails. Spectacular breakfast and close access to town to some great restaurants for dinner. Rooms were very nice with comfy beds. Ken and Lori... More

Ken and Lori are fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was wonderful, the rooms were extremely comfortable, and the lodge is spectacular. I will definitely be back. Hopefully next time the weather will be a bit more cooperative. The location is perfect, easy walk to the gondola, close to the bars and restaurants (such as they... More

Kicking Horse is one of the great mountains of the Powder Highway, and the Vagabond is one of the really great Ski Lodges of the world. Small and intimate, yet glowing with Western elegance and the most gracious hospitality anywhere! Ken and Lori are simply the nicest couple you will ever meet. You will never forget how comfortable and cozy... More

It was the perfect place to stay for our holiday. Ken and Lori (the owners) were so kind, nothing was ever too much and they were so helpful. The beds were incredibly comfortable and now makes my own bed seem totally inadequate. The food was utterly perfect for breakfast and lunch. I had pancakes every morning and eggs and then... More

The owners, Don and Lora, made us so welcome at the Vagabond Lodge. They have built it from scratch based on the idea of a European chalet. It's not a sophisticated hotel, but we prefer this atmosphere of a stock-yourself bar in a beautiful and comfortable lounge area. It's a 5-minute walk to the base of the Kicking Horse ski... More

We traveled from Norway to spend our Christmas in Kicking Horse at the Vagabond Logde. Lori and Ken (the owners) are the most hospitable, caring and wonderful hostes. They don't know what good they can do for you. You get what you want for breakfast and if you are lucky they introduce you to Don (The King of the Hill),... More
