“Feeling at home -you don´t want to leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We loved this place from the very first moment! Lynn is a lovely host, sharing lots of helpful information, like good places to dine or the farmers market, where you can buy german bread from a german baker who is baking fresh right at the market. The house is a architectural gem, especially the terrific view from the living room which you share with the other guests. To begin a day with a smile you need and get a wonderful breakfas. It is not typical Canadian, but offers even more than fresh fruit and yoghurts, like fresh real bread, cheese, marmelade, self baked muffins and everything you ask for.
We were happy that we have decided to stay four nights- we left knowing that it would be hard to find a similar heavenly place during our 3 week trip through West-Canada. Thank you Lynn!

Room Tip: they are all quiet and lovely decorated

Sometimes life treats you to a real joy. I have just experienced one such event. There is always an element of doubt when yo think you have discovered the ideal accommodation. But Home Lodge delivered everything I had hoped for, and the a dollop more. I do not believe Lynn Moffat could do anything more to improve the quality of experience at Home Lodge. It starts soon after booking with emails asking what she could do to make our visit a success. The a lodge is a true home from home, with the guests encouraged to mix and chat. It is amazing how tips on places to see or to eat at get passed on. The Lodge is impressive, set out of town in its own land. Sitting on the veranda offers utter peace of mind. It is serene. We were only there two nights, but they will be nights we shall remember it for many a long day.

Room Tip: Any room will be more than good enough. Just make sure you go!

Seeing this place for he first time as you approach up the drive is the first eye-opener. It is lovely!! Hostess, Lynn, is fantastic. So welcoming and accommodating. The house itself is just stunning, with guests genuinely encouraged to use all of the generous living space. Views from the sitting room are fabulous.
Rooms are extremely comfortable and Lynn provides a first class breakfast. Wander round the property at your leisure and meet the friendly highland cattle that Lynn and her partner keep.
If you're passing through Golden, then don't miss this 'nugget'! (Sorry).

My wife and I were at the tail end of a two week motorcycle trip and on our way home. Golden, B.C. on the trip was the first and last leg of our trip. The trip out the hotel we stayed at was less than satisfactory. We have always wanted to stay at a Bed & Breakfast and found the Home Lodge. Where to begin, wake up in the morning fresh mountain air blowing in the room, a cow calls out letting us know time to get up. Window in the shower looks out over a mountain range with the sun tickling the peaks. The smell of fresh coffee fills the air. We enter the dining area to find Lynn has a fruit salad on the table, different cheeses, cereals and breads. We have stayed and fancy resorts that don’t put out this kind of breakfast. Her cheery disposition and knowledge of the area and beyond is impressive, need a good place for supper she knows the local establishments like the back or her hand. Felt like we were at home rather than staying at someone’s home. What a great ending to a 3000 mile road trip, defiantly we will be going back. Lynn has set a very high bar in our books for a Bed & Breakfast.

We want to add our endorsement for Lynn's wonderful bed and breakfast. Having all day access to the whole house and grounds makes it seem as if you are staying at a friend's house and adds an extra dimension to the experience.

Lynn cannot do it better. Since you arrive in the Home Lodge, you feel like in your own house: she explains everything and is eager to provide help when need it.
The house is simply amazing. I have never been in a house like that. The rooms have a very good size. There is no TV in the house but in fact you don't need it.
And one of the best things is during breakfast: she is preparing everything. Even the muffins that were wonderful!
Only one thing that is stopping me to give a 10 to the home lodge: noise isolation could improve. From your room you can hear everything that is happening in the room next to you or even in the kitchen. Maybe something to think about...
I would come back if I am back in Goleen.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review. I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon.
One of the reasons there are no TV's in the rooms (but there is one in the TV room in the basement) is because of noise, and being unable to control just how much of it other guests choose to make!
The sound insulation in the home is to the standard of all properties in Canada. Some guests request breakfast at 6.30 and others at 9, and the Lodge was completely full the night you stayed.
Hope to see you on your Anniversary! Lynn
