Our hosts Alan & Madeleine went to great lengths to ensure that our stay was a rewarding one. We especially enjoyed staying in the Lodge where we had the opportunity to meet &... More

I stayed here for 4 nights and was enthralled by the scenery woodland walks and the nearby wildlife watching sites pointed out by the friendly owners who were extremely helpful.

Stayed 2 nights while travelling through the Rockies. Agree with all the positive reviews that we've now read. Totally taken with the location, scenery, ethos and atmosphere of Aurum Lodge. Great view across Lake Abraham from our bedroom on the upper floor of the main building. Very friendly welcome from Alan and Madeleine, who were great hosts, had good advice... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in one of the 2 units separate from the main lodge. It suited our needs perfectly. A very clean and fully functional unit that included a flush toilet, shower, kitchen, table, bed and reading chairs. Their commitment to renewable energy is admirable, and a bonus that I was not aware of when I located... More

I feel I have to counteract the recent negative review of this location. My wife and I just spent 4 nights at the lodge. The setting is magnificent, we particularly enjoyed the wonderful view from our bedroom. The wildlife here is abundant, we were fascinated by the humming birds. Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. I thoroughly recommend Aurum... More

I am sharing my experience trying to book a room with the Aurum lodge. I was trying to stay for a Sunday night in the “Shoulder season” as their website describes it. I was told that I would have to stay 2 nights because it was the “Peak Season”. I only wanted to stay 1 night and offered to get... More

I have stayed at Aurum Lodge twice. I stayed in the separate cottage both times and enjoyed the quiet accommodation. The place is super clean and comfortable. The surrounding country side deserves exploring and should be visited numerous times to discover all its beauty. I recommend visiting the Nordegg Mine in the nearby town while staying at the Aurum Lodge.
