“'Home Lodge' away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Home Lodge is an amazing little gem hidden away in beautiful surroundings in Golden. My wife and I stayed there a night in July 2013. Lynn greeted us at the door and we were welcomed warmly into the house. You immediately felt at ease and relaxed, and that is a credit to Lynn the host. The place is beautifully renovated and there is very tasteful touches all around the house. We stayed in the basement room and we had the downstairs lounge and the entire area to ourselves.

We were given helpful tips on what to do and where to eat etc. The vibe even between the guests were fantastic, and I am sure it's all down to the friendliness of the host. There are numerous places you can sit and relax around the house and the grounds.

The breakfast was amazing and there was a wide variety to choose from. The place really feels like home and we definitely felt we were home visiting with some friends. We will definitely pass word around to other Brits who want to travel in Canada.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review - it's very much appreciated.
The atmosphere round the breakfast table in the morning was lovely to witness, but you as guests must take credit for making it that way! Thanks for your great energy.

Rarely did I have to admit that good taste and functionality go together well. Home lodge is a flamboyant proof of that. Going up the winding roads above Golden while passing thru farm land and small mountain ranches one cannot expect such a stylish, modern, yet rustic and charming place. Open and bright living spaces, comfy and neatly decorated bedrooms as well as a Breakfast in par with high end food establishments, wrap up the experience package that we had the opportunity to experience twice with the same renewed pleasure. An extraordinary experience to have Scotish cows and bulls grazing while you are having breakfast in the hart of Canada...unexpected! Thank You Jenny. This place breathes and shines of your personality and caracter...see you soon!

The Home Lodge is a beautiful, cozy B & B nestled in the woods near Golden. The owner, Lynn, is super friendly and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and gorgeously decorated in a comfortable modern style accented with local art. There are Scottish Highland cows in a field next to the house. If you are lucky, they will serenade you in the morning! It is a short easy drive to town. The public spaces are open for your enjoyment. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

Home Lodge is perfect in so many ways: the whole building is beautiful and brand new, it's on a beautiful location, Lynn is a very friendly and helpfull owner, nice clean bedrooms with a brand new bathroom with perfect rainshower, beautiful relax rooms for public use with books and music, seats outside on the veranda, but also at the back of the house, a hottub outside, the lovely highland cows, the hummingbirds, delicious breakfast made with love and I can go on and on....!!

At home lodge it's possible to relax and have some privacy, but you can also chat with Lynn or other guests if you'd like to, it's up to you! Too bad we could only stay 1 night, hope we can come back some day!!

Our stay at Lynn and Sigi's place was just wonderful. They have a really nice and well equipped house, in which we felt at home from the first moment. The view through the huge window in the living room was amazing and we enjoyed sitting there and reading or listening to music. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable.
We were aloud to use much of the facilities in the house and the Breakfast was great. Not served in different courses as in other BnB, were you feel like forced to eat everything. Everything needed (fresh fruits, jogurt, bread, fresh juice, etc.) was available and one daily dish is served if wanted.

Lynn was very keen in helping us to plan our days and give recommondations and was interested in how our trips were, but had a good balance between interest and respecting privacy, she is just a great host.

Great scenery, very kind and welcoming owner, excellent place overall, very clean and comfortable, quiet, owner very respectful of privacy, beautiful house.
No TV in room (one large flat-screen available downstairs, with 40-50 movies, but none in room). King bed is actually 2 single beds stuck together; it's still comfortable overall, but there's a hard line in the middle -- can't sleep in the middle of the bed, have to be each on their own side.

Well, I can't really say much more than the other 40 or so people who have given the Home Lodge 5 stars here. We stayed for two nights recently and to tell you the truth I was sad to leave. Not because of Golden and the mountains, but because of Lynn and her fantastic hospitality. This is the best B and B I have ever experienced and you won't be sorry if you stay here. Thank you Lynn for a wonderful experience.
