We booked last minute for one night when our car broke down in Golden. The (new) owner, Bill, was extremely helpful and accommodating, even printed contact info for the car dealership for us upon our arrival. We got the best room in the house, a beautiful two-story loft with 3 beds and amazing views. The lodge has a homey feeling to it, it is rustic but modern, and has a beautiful central fire-placed living room. I liked that we had to take our shoes off when entering, as we would do in our own home. The rustic pub is right next door and could be located in Austria or Switzerland. The ribs were outstanding, great beer, and the atmosphere was perfect for apres ski. Breakfast was included, and was simple but ok quality. Staying at this lodge turned our car break-down into a great vacation experience. We will definitively come back - did I mention that the lodge is located across the street from the Kicking Horse gondola?
