From start to finish this was an incredible experience. We stumbled across this experience last minute and it ended up being nothing short of amazing. Rob, Mar and Teresa were wonderful to be with and made it a very special time. River rafting and camping was top notch and we will definitely be back. Bucket list material. Strongly recommended!

We started our holiday here and it was an absolute highlight. It started auspiciously as we met a black bear on the long unmade road that takes you to this remote and wonderful spot. The hospitality from Rob and Marilyn the owners and their brilliant and welcoming chef and helper, Theresa was one of the standouts of the stay. The cabins are ancient (originally they housed workers building the trans continental railway I think) and solid and wonderful, eclectically and thoughtfully decorated and very comfortable and soooo quiet. It was great being "off grid" and having to think about power and light usage. We had wonderful meals at the lodge (breakfast, dinner and a thoughtful packed lunch) and went on a number of spectacular hikes. We also had a fantastic morning on the river with Kootenay Rafting Company under the brilliant guide Carson. Highly recommend this place as a fabulous place to get away from it all into spectacular and wild countryside, we loved it! One day I hope we will be able return and do it all again!…
Cross River is the stand out memory of our Canadian trip. We opted to explore on our own and Rob's advice and assistance was invaluable. It enabled us to walk for hours without seeing a soul! The views over the Kootenay and Cross Rivers epitomised, the Rockies for us. The cabins were cosy and comfortable and the woodburner was a treat on late summer evenings. The food was delicious thanks to Teresa's flair and imagination and the use of top quality ingredients. Marilyn, Rob and Teresa made us feel very welcome and the atmosphere at Cross River is very special.
Haven't been able to visit for several years, so we were really looking forward to our visit. Well it certainly didn't disappoint! Beautiful scenery, wonderful hosts, Incredible food and lovely peace and quiet! The cabins are as usual lovely and homely with a nice wood burning stove for those cold nights. I HIGHLY recommend Cross River!
We have just returned from an amazing holiday in Canada. We spent 3 days at Cross River in our beautiful cabin. The beds were so comfortable and the food, cooked by Teresa, was the best food of the holiday. We did a half day hike with Rob and Marilyn to the Kootenay river seeing canyon and waterfalls on the way. We returned to make our own Dreamcatchers with Marilyn. The next day we joined a white water rafting trip just 5 mins from the centre, this was a wet, fun trip and highly recommended. We were really sad to leave this oasis. Thank you for a wonderful time.
