A lucky find for my husband and me on a rainy September afternoon in Golden. We had driven down the ice fields highway in increasingly wet and chilly conditions, then turned west at Lake Louise to take a chance that we would find accomodation in the beautiful mountain town of Golden, BC. We were lucky. By chance our first stop... More

We loved staying at this bed and breakfast! It was charming through and through. It is a large log cabin surrounded by beautiful gardens and conveniently located along the TransCanadian Highway 1. Our room was just right, cozy and with a very comfortable bed (Room 9). The woman who greeted us was friendly and helpful (sorry, I didn't get her... More

Hospitality, food, rooms, location all top notch! After a not so welcome, welcome at Quantum Leaps Lodge my sister and I left to find a better place to sleep.

The best lodge we had in Canada, the breakfast was exzellent! The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a gondola in Golden with offers you the best view over the Rocky Mountains. Rafting is offerd, Golden is a good place vor doing that.

This place was a pleasant surprise. Nestled in the midst of a nice garden yet close to the TransCanada highway is this large log building. The interior is decorated with antiques, collectibles, quilts, etc - don't forget the full size stuffed bear in the dining room! The rooms were small but adequate with very comfy bedding. There's a large living... More

The 'wet and wild' rafting sign guided us to McLaren lodge, where we had a quaint log cabin-room in the mountains! It is conveniently located close to the turn off to Golden. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast plentiful and delicious. We especially liked the egg casserole called fritata! There are no TV's in the rooms, but a common... More

We spent a very restful night at the McLaren Lodge. The Lodge is easily accessed from Golden and is near the Visitors' Center. The bed was very comfortable and the room was warmly furnished and cozy.

I have stayed here with my wife for 2 nights. Pro: very clean linen sheets and room; easy to find the hotel by any GPS; very quiet by night; beautiful landscape around the cabin; spacious parking lot. Con: a dictatorial rule that say the entrance door will be locked up at 11:00 pm with no exception, so we struggled to... More

Great place (that will probably leave you disappointed)! They were rude, unaccommodating, and didn't let us in. We had been driving for 9 hours to spend a night here to divide our trip, expecting to have a comfortable and quiet sleep, a homemade breakfast and morning showers before yet another day of driving.

Thank you for outlining our policies and times of operation. Some other B & B's may have different circumstances, but we run more than one business from our premises and do not allow public access or leave keys after hours for many reasons.
