“Great little getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Booked 1 night for our 20th anniversary. Great deal for room included dinner and breakfast. Dinner was fantastic. They upgraded our dinner to a 6 course meal when they found out it was our anniversary. Happened to have live music that night, was awesome. Room was clean and nice. Best thing was the staff, very helpful and friendly. Will stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We stopped in for the night on our way through to Penticton. This is a really nice little place, very comfortable and clean. The staff were great and there was kind of a pride that they took in their lodge, there was a vegetable garden out back. The grounds and scenery were just beautiful. The food was really great as well. We felt right at home, we would recommend this lodge and we will be staying there again, next time we are through that area. The only thing I'd say was the signage is not that great, there is a very small sign saying Heather Mountain Lodge and then the turn off is RIGHT there, keep your eyes open for it :)

Location:
We stayed two nights at Heather Mountain Lodge, making trips in the direction of Golden each day. Make no mistake, when the hotel's website says "off the grid" they mean it's off the grid. There is little or no cell phone reception and the wi-fi is more off than on. It's 55km from Golden on the one side, and 89km from Revelstoke on the other - and there are no towns inbetween. It was not a light drive to Golden since there were roadworks while we were there, which slowed the traffic down. However, this is exactly why people come to this hotel: - its proximity to national parks, trails, hikes, ice fields and glaciers.

If you want peace and quiet, access to the top natural attractions of British Columbia, and amazing mountain views, and if you are the sort of person who likes luxury in the countryside, this is the place for you. In the winter months, Heather Mountain Lodge is closed to the public, to accommodate heli-skiing parties.

Room:
The hotel is really attractive, with attention to the finest design details - expecially the restaurant area with its beautiful wood work. Booking-in was straightforward, and the receptionist/manager made an effort to get us into our suite even though we were early. The suite was attractive and spotlessly clean, and the bathroom was large and luxurious. The two beds were just firm enough and had good linen. Our room had an excellent espresso maker with good coffee, which I've never seen in any hotel room. It also had a fan, which was necessary since it was boiling hot and the room gets a lot of sun.

Food:
The hotel emphasizes that it is a place for "foodies" and while the menu was brief, the food was really good and they had a good selection of wine. This is an important point since, being so isolated, you are basically stuck with the hotel food. On booking in, we immediately bought some gelatos at the front desk, which were delicious. Sometimes the service in the restaurant was slower than we expected, but that forced us to take it easy and relax.

Entertainment:
On our last night, the hotel booked a rock band from Golden to play live - "Willhorse", and it was a pleasant surprise since they were excellent. Those guys are really talented. Upstairs from the restaurant is a cosy pub with books, magazines, TV and a billiards table.

On our way from Bamff to Kamloops, we happened upon this lovely Lodge for lunch. The setting is beautiful. They only had a small lunch assortment available- but it was delicious. My husband had a Elk and cheese pastie or potpie and I had a focaccia sandwich with Brie and garden fresh basil and tomatoes. We sat on the porch and relaxed for our drive ahead. Would try and stay at the lodge and have dinner next time up here.

Our 2 boys paid for this weekend at Heather Mountain Lodge. It was like a 31st anniversary gift. From the moment we walked in to register til the moment we left we felt like family to the staff. So friendly and helpful. The food was amazing . Hats off to the chef and his help. It was nice to really relax and unwind for 2 days and nights. The packed lunch was a nice touch too. The waiters and waitresses were great. Highly recommended. Will return again.

On our road trip from Clagary to Vancouver, we stopped off for the night as it is just off the Highway. The food was amazing and the staff very friendly they made us really welcome. They gave us tips for hikes and walks that were on their doorstep, the views were awesome we stayed an extra couple of days. The food was to die for. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We will definately be back.

Room Tip: Don't miss any of the meals - they are to die for.
