My wife and I stayed at Island Lake for one night in August 2019 and were very impressed. It is a gorgeous location in the Rockies, surrounded by tall mountains and a few minutes away from a picture postcard lake. We had dinner in the evening and the food was excellent, nicely presented and the server was good too. Our room in the Cedar Lodge was large, with a small balcony. The shower was walled in some dark material and that made it difficult to see. My main complaint is that there were four pillows on the king-sized bed. They were too small and uncomfortable. The mattress was topped with thick foam and that was too soft for us. We certainly did not like the heavy duvet and think that a blanket would be more appropriate for summer temperatures. The breakfast was very good and the menu of items was large enough to satisfy anyone. This resort is well worth staying at and we will return.

Scenery, staff, and food were all outstanding. Stayed here for 3 nights in the summer- gourmet meals, challenging hikes and top notch service. Exceeded only by the breath-taking location,.. Would highly recommend.

We regard Island Lake Lodge as somewhere to go that's special. The scenery is spectacular as it is settled right in the mountains above a pretty little lake. We like to dine there outside on their deck on a warm summer's evening. But the last time we went we were disappointed with the Tamarack Dining room. The atmosphere of course was superb, the service was adequate, but the menu was limited and way over priced. My wife and I split an order of strip loin steak costing us $45. The kitchen wouldn't split the meal on individual plates. They just gave us an extra plate and we split it ourselves. The steak was so so but we gagged at the price and we were happy we didn't order a meal each. We just didn't feel, after enduring a torturous drive up the mountain that it was a good value for our money.

Thank you for your feedback. We will have a look at our portion sizes and pricing. Please be advised that we do have a more casual restaurant - The Bear Lodge Bistro, which has a great menu at a lower price point. Cheers

Perfect family hike around the lake followed by dinner on the patio. Locally sourced fresh ingredients. Delicious meal. Kids aren’t very adventurous; but they are their meals without persuasion. Have the chai!

Had a small summer elopement. It was perfect. Staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. Food and drink were spectacular. Service was in a secluded area with a beautiful stream on one side, right on the lake. Could hear fish jumping during our vows. Would recommend to others looking for something similar.
