My husband and I were recently married at Island Lake Lodge and we can't even begin to express what a phenomenal experience it was! We couldn't have hoped for a better wedding weekend - we and our guests enjoyed everything from the SPECTACULAR venue to the the delicious food, and from the courteous and attentive staff to the the plethora...

Had a wonderful "date night" dinner which the lodge offers on Mondays. The food was excellent, our server was attentive and knowledgable about the wines on offer. The deal is $80 for a couple to have two glasses of bubbly, two entrees and one appetizer/dessert to share. The only shocker was the bill at the end as we had added... More

We had our wedding here in July and it was the most amazing day. Everything was well organized and the food was amazing! The venue helped with creating the perfect day and they were all great to work with! I can't wait to come back for our anniversary!

What an amazing view and environs! Rooms were very nice - try to get one with a balcony; it's totally worth it. Restaurant was lovely, food delicious, well prepared, and nice seating options both in and out. Complimentary breakfast, ordering off the menu, made for a great start to the day, Very popular with mountain bikers, and cat skiers int... More

We are a couple in our mid 60s celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We booked into Island Lake Lodge on the zoomer package which includes 2 nights in a deluxe room, full breakfast, 1/2 day guided hike, 1 hour canoe rental, cook book and $50 resort credit. It was an outstanding value and an amazing place to stay - wilderness... More

It is a harrowing 8km drive past the provincial park on steep and windy gravel roads but the payoff is well worth it. Service was great, the scenery was amazing, the food and drinks were beautifully presented and delicious. I had the seared Tuna Nicoise and a panna cotta. Both were perfect. I would have liked to taken more time... More

Took some family and friends up there for some hiking, scenery and a pint on the patio. Following our hikes, we waited to be seated on the patio. No one came, so we sat ourselves. No one came to our table after 20 minutes, despite wait staff passing our table numerous times. Went in to inquire, they said they didn't... More

Wow, what a fabulous mountain resort! The beds are probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the food simply delicious both visually and taste, and the inclusive breakfast far exceeded my expectation. The Lodges are beautiful, comfortable, relaxing with a welcoming hot tub at the end of a day of hiking. Every staff member I dealt with was... More

Really enjoyed this place. Past fernie provincial park, so bout 5 or 6 miles up a dirt road. So worth it. Great food and beautiful views! Walking down to the lake the views of the back of lizard range where the actual ski resort is located are absolutely amazing! Go!!!

This place absolutely blew us away. Wow. The views are amazing. Our room was roomy and spotless. The staff were top-notch, from the front-desk person to the restaurant staff, to the gardener lady that was adjusting the sprinkler and wished us a good morning, to the maintenance worker talking about fishing. It really seems like everyone really enjoys working there... More
