A very nice find. The facilities were very clean. Friendly staff, coffee in the room, nice private decks for each room overlooking Kootenay Lake - wonderful therapy! And these is a shared BBQ should you be inclined to just hand out and do your own thing. Close to the Balfour Ferry and the local crafts, bakery, pub and cafes, not... More

My husband and I had our wedding there in July and had the best experience! Reg was more than helpful during the planning process through phone calls and emails, and it all came together perfectly once we arrived. Stephanie did a fantastic job decorating the tents and tables and it was great not having to worry about anything once we... More

Great area, great hotel. If you are looking for a lot of activity and night life, this is probably not the place for you but this is a great relaxing low key place to stay. Beautiful views of the mountains and the lake. Large well equipped room. Basic continental breakfast included. Was not busy season (after the long weekend in... More

This is a beautiful place with an amazing view of the lake. We were there for a wedding. Prior to our arrival, we had many changes, Reg and Stephanie were unbelievably accommodating! They were the best hosts! It was great to finally meet them. Reg is the owner, Inn Keeper, host, organizer and master DJ--thanks for the Pitt Bull!

Our family stayed for three nights at the lodge. The adjoining rooms were comfortable with the king room having a fridge and seating area with pullout sofa. I think the 2nd and third floors have a better view of the lake but the property has lovely views of the mountains from each room's patio. One reason we booked here was... More

We had an inexcusable experience with our reservation. Planning a Canadian Rockies road trip, I phoned the lodge in March to make a reservation for 2 September 2013. Reggie was at the desk and when I asked what was available, he said "anything you like. We are wide open." I booked the Corner King and made a deposit. Two months... More

Reg, the owner, is very accommodating and friendly and did a great job as wedding DJ too! We enjoyed the views from the balcony, the only... More

We just had a wedding up at this magical location. The scenery spectacular, food excellent, rooms & restaurant on the premises and Reg , the owner, does a magnificent job . He's such a personable guy and does so many weddings he can do a wedding package to suit your needs! We loved everything about the wedding. Highly recommend Kootenay... More

I know this review is kind of unusual, but I run a field school for geology students, and Balfour is a really important place for us to stay because we do a week's worth of day-trips out to some fantastic places. This is the first year we have stayed at the Kootenay Lakeview Lodge, and it worked out even better... More

The location was beautiful with a very nice view of the lake. It was a smaller hotel with a well kept course to play golf. The fellow in charge took really good care of us and was very friendly. I would for sure come back!
