At an elevation of over 2200 meters, we already had high expectations of our time at Purcell. Somehow those expectations were greatly exceeded.The guides, master chef and house manger on minute 1 treated us like old friends and effortlessly brought a group of very diverse guests together for adventure, and many laughs along the way. The scenery did not disappoint including a light snow fall hike that was a winter wonderland. The bear family daily show was priceless. We felt like we had hiked to a Michelin Star restaurant in the middle of mountain no where far away from civilization, comforted knowing our hikes would take care of any extra piece of gourmet cake or glass of fine wine. You will never feel more alive than standing atop a mountain summit with the clear sky above and earth below. George Mallory said it best; Go because it’s there.

Thank you for the "rewarding three days!" review of your fall stay. Our Purcell Mountain Lodge family of staff love hosting guests in our home in the mountains. Thank you for sharing your feedback about the guided hiking program, attentive crew, meal services and lodge setting. The helicopter ride in over the Rockies is indeed a special way to start and end the trip. Thank you for your visit and please come back and see us again in the future. There are more summits to conquer and explore.

Amazing location, scenic moderate hikes. The guides (Joe and Lorraine our week) were knowledgeable experienced and great at managing pace and the group’s abilities. Food was excellent. Jackie is a very pleasant host. Really enjoyed the company of the other guests and the staff.

The Purcell Lodge is located in a wonderful high mountain meadow. There are lots of opportunities to hike with great views of several different mountain ranges. Staff is very knowledgeable and happy to accommodate most requests. This is the perfect place to enjoy hiking while unplugging from the world. It is also a place to just enjoy the lodge and the decks with their fine views. The Chef makes wonderfully prepared and presented meals. Do not go here if you want to lose weight, the food is great.
