A remote setting that few people see. The high mountain setting is usually reserved for hikers willing to put in the sweat. Yet you have beds, showers, and gourmet food. It is truly a unique experience. The dinners usually have at least five unique dishes. You'll think you're in a fancy restaurant and not miles from civilization.

We have stayed at other backcountry lodges and understand the challenges they have in supplying to a remote area and Cathedral Lakes does a very good job. Breakfasts and dinners by chef were excellent - a nice blend of hearty with interesting flavour twists, friendly staff, informative shuttle drivers. Lodge room spacious with large bed, common room on main level... More

Thank you. It is reassuring to get a review from someone who understands the challenges of running an alpine lodge and does not expect the same level of amenities as found in hotels on the grid and with public access. . More

we just came down from the lodge after a weekend stay, I would like to start off by saying how great the staff was that we encountered always a smile and a laugh, the lodge and cabins where nice with comfy beds, we had a fairly large group up and the general feeling was everyone had a great weekend. our...

We live near and hike in the Rockies so were a little worried that the views around Cathedral Lakes would not be as dramatic. How wrong we were! The Rim hike was absolutely fantastic and make sure you include a trip to Devil's Woodpile and Stone Pile. They have fishing gear and canoes to borrow. We saw many people fishing... More

Disappointed and sad with lack of interest from owner and staff with guests. They had very little interest in communicating with us. The place feels old and tired and in need of new life, new energy, higher quality service and more creative healthy food options. A staff member should greet the guests each morning with a discussion of the hiking... More

I have owned and operated Cathedral Lakes Lodge for the past 25 years and I assure you that the couches, beds and furnishings are not the same as 35 years ago. The collection of past issues of National Geographic magazine were left to the lodge by my late mother and added to the library 3 years ago. It would be... More

Another fabulous stay in Cathedral Lakes. The Lodge can't take credit for the scenery or the weather, but they can take credit for decent accommodation (though don't expect hot water) and exceptional food. The food has been better each year. Thanks, Jordan!

I had the privilege of hiking here for three days during the last week of July. The hiking was absolutely spectacular and would highly recommend visiting this beautiful area. Hiking here is definitely a five star experience. Staying at Cathedral Lake Lodge is the only game in town unless you want to camp at one of the campgrounds nearby, which... More

Unbelievable hiking up to and on the rim of the Okanagan Mountains. The only accommodation is at the Cathedral Lakes Lodge which has seen better days and is reminiscent of a logging camp. Food is basic, but satisfying after a hard day's hiking. Rooms are very basic and mostly no hot water available. Sloppy staff. BUT, all this does not... More

We had the amazing experience to stay for 3 days at one of the cabin of Cathedral lodge (Cabin #4) right in front of the Quinscoe Lake and Quinscoe Mountain. Highly recommended if you like being near to the alpine meadows hiking trails and enjoying an amazing meal and warm hot top at the end of your hiking day. This... More

Well here's another review for a place I didn't actually stay at. We were camping in the provincial campground about 100 meters from the lodge. We used their shuttle service to get from the trailhead up to the lodge in the alpine. Well worth it at $100 per round trip. That way we can camp in a bit more comfort.... More
