Loved loved the area and hikes! Spectacular mountains and beautiful lake. The hotel staff were beyond accommodating and helpful!! Friendly and efficient and went way out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The spa was so nice - fabulous treatments and quality products. I came away relaxed and rejuvenated! The dining was exquisitely delicious with lots... More

We spent one night at Island Lake Lodge in the summer. Stayed in a king room in the Cedar lodge. Comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. Very quiet and relaxing. Good sized balcony and use of shared hot tub for the lodge. Ate dinner in the restaurant which lived up to its reputation - very good. Only complaint was there is... More

The staff, quality of food and surroundings exceeded my expectations. It was my first trip to Island Lake Lodge and I was so impressed, it will not be my last. My first encounter with Jen when I made my reservation to my last breakfast in the dining room was wonderful. The food was some of the best I have ever... More

We drove up from Fernie - no overnight stay. The lunch was fab!!!!!! The food was very fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the excellent view of the mountains. The grounds are very inviting to explore, and we took a trip to the lake.

This would be my twelfth trip. Possibly the worst weather one could imaging yet, somehow the fantastic guides manage to pull a rabbit out of their collective hats and provide yet another fantastic experience. The streak will continue. I will be back!

I will be coming back to Island Lake Lodge with my Husband on our anniversary in December. If nature and luxury combined are your thing, then the romantically secluded cat ski lodge is the place to be. We were there on a snowshoe trip, however will be back for cat skiing, snowshoeing and cross country! Can't wait to try the... More

The staff from the lodge to the mountain make this trip truly memorable. The snow and terrain are fantastic, the food and dining top notch, the facilities & spa are great and the rooms are just right - not too rustic, not too fancy. If you're a ski/snowboard enthusiast, this is a must for your bucketlist.

Imagine waking up, the moon is full shining into your room and as you take a look outside you see a mountain chain framed in the moon light... It is by far the most beautiful place to see in Canada maybe even the world. We were there in early July and it was memorable to say the least. In the... More

Island Lake is a great place to cat-ski. Heavy rain in early December were a worry but by December 18th with a bunch of snow, they were good to go. Not a lot of terrain open but the guides made sure we had a great 3 days. The staff at Island Lake were phenomenal (were they always like that?), and... More
