Lifetime of memories from the stunning vistas, top rated hiking guides and incredible meals from a talented chef. Our photos do not do justice to the beautiful flowering meadows and the mountain glaciers. We would love to return with our family for another adventure!

All around, courteous and professional staff really focused on delivering the best possible experience. The food and trail guiding was second to none. The Lodge is perfect for those who want time to themselves and to those who really want to experience alpine hiking at its best! Dan & Cindy Delaloye

From the outstanding scenery to the excellent guides to the great food and comfortable beds, we could not have had a better mountain experience. It is very unusual to be in such a beautiful and isolated place and still have so many comforts - a cold beer, creative meals and a hot shower at the end of a solid day... More

Unbelievable scenery, incredible food and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The helicopter ride in was a fun way to begin our adventure. The guides not only took us to all the best trails but they were also entertaining and informative.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Purcell Mountain Lodge this summer, and it was a joy from start to finish. After a short, early-morning helicopter ride from Golden, we arrived at the Lodge in plenty of time to settle in, munch some yummy treats from the buffet (did I say our departure from Golden was early?), and pack...

We were invited with another couple to Purcell for a wine and food weekend. It was a great opportunity to get away from the urban city grind we are so use to. With a short helicopter ride from Golden, we arrived at the lodge high into the mountains, surrounded by beautiful meadows. The lodge is beautifully done, with nice common... More
