Not the bargain option, but so lovely to put on the robe and walk down the hall to the pools. The king bed was totally comfortable and cozy and the view of the lake is wonderful. The only complaint was the strong smell of bleach in the hallway from the laundry on our floor. The restaurant is fine, not spectacular but plenty good, well appointed, great service and convenient. Dinner was $20+ Canadian, but was fresh and healthy. We had the breakfast special, a delicious omelet that was cheaper than restaurants at home. Ainsworth Hot Springs is a wonderful experience-the caves are amazing and it's fun to sit in the hot pool outside the cave and chat with people from other countries.
We visited on a quiet mid-week late winter time. It is very crowded in the summer but I totally recommend this as a romantic overnight from the North Idaho or Spokane area. On a two night trip, spend the middle day visiting Nelson or the cute town of Kaslo.
