Four of us, 2 adult couples from Montreal and Calgary, spent the night of July 18th at Glenogle Lodge. We wanted our Montreal cousins to experience a quiet evening in the mountains as it was their first trip West; it was our first time at the lodge as well, but the reviews in Trip Advisor were so glowing that we wanted to try it.
When guests arrive, they enter a large main room which features the registration desk, a bar, fireplace lounge, and a dining area with lots of windows. Doris greeted all of us with hugs and showed us to our 2 spotless rooms in the lodge itself which were on the main floor just off the main lounge space. More rooms are upstairs.
Although both the owners had spent the day building a retaining wall, Doris quickly rustled us up a large, tasty meal in her large kitchen. While dinner was being prepared, we enjoyed the hummingbirds on the balcony-porch, and were delighted when a deer decided to graze just below us. We invited Doris and Norbert to join us as we ate, so while we chewed, they sipped wine we had brought, and told us the story of their hard-working lives. A thunderstorm temporarily took the power out, but luckily it was restored in half an hour or so, as they told us otherwise we would have just "one flush" each, and no hot shower until the power returned!
Glenogle is not luxurious, but it is comfortable. It is memorable because of the personalities of its owners and its quiet setting. The beds are good, the rooms and linens clean and fresh, and the food rib-sticking and creative. Don't expect TV, radio, or the Ritz Carlton but do expect an experience.
