We booked the Cascades Room on the main floor. It was fairly big room with a private bathroom, small screen TV and a working wood burning fireplace. There is no view from this room it was very comfortable. Our friend booked a room on the second floor, it was nice as well with a limited view of the forest but no fireplace. She was comfortable in the room.
There are many acres of property to explore and lots of photo opportunities in the area. On the property there are a number of quite friendly llamas and a large flock of chickens (no roosters that I heard) which soon will be laying eggs.
The hosts Kevin and Jen are just delightful. They have only been working at the Lodge since January but you can see they are enjoying every moment here. They are in love with the area with the natural setting and their beloved mountains all around.
Jen is a very good cook and Kevin is the "sous chef". The cheese souffle was just delicious. Jen also baked fresh muffins and scones each day. They are aware of special dietary needs of some guests and were most accommodating.
There was a small fridge in the dining area stocked with bottled water, soft drinks, and chocolate milk for guests to enjoy at anytime. There was also an extensive Tea Box to chose from.
We were welcomed by Kevin and he saw to our every need. My husband has some mobility problems so our room on the main floor made it easy for him to get around.
The photos of the lodge on their web site show the lodge as it really is. A large great room with a sweeping staircase to the second floor. This would be a great place to have a wedding reception.
We drove the Mt Baker Scenic Hwy and stopped at the Nooksack Falls along the way - Both spectacular sights. We were only able to get to Heather Meadows as there was still 35 plus feet of snow at the higher parking lot and it was not plowed. We also drove Hwy 9 to a small community of Acme for lunch at the Acme Cafe - great food and a fun place. We had dinner in Emmerson at a Steak & Schnitzel house - huge portions of good food. All places within an easy drive of the Lodge.
Summary, The Anderson Creek Lodge Bed & Breakfast was a nice welcoming place to spend a relaxing weekend and for us not too far to travel from our home in BC. We plan to return in the Fall or Winter when it is sunny, cold and lots of frost.
