This was our first time booking the Horsethief Lodge. We purchased the last week of May through RCI. We had requested a one bedroom unit but upon arrival we asked if we could upgrade to a 2 bedroom unit. The person handling the check-in was very helpful and for a small fee we received a two bedroom unit for our stay.
If you are from the city and want some good fresh mountain air, this is it. Lots of birds and animals, hiking trails and great golf courses. We were not here for the ski season but this appears to be a great place for skiing. Golf courses include Greywolf (minutes away), The Springs at Radium, Riverside and Mountainside at Fairmont and more. Some are a bit pricey but do rate high for the province of BC. During our stay at Panorama, we took in Radium Hot Springs - just over a half hour away. It is about an equal distance to Fairmont or Radium for their Hot Springs - just different directions.
Our unit at the Horsethief had considerable updating - new carpets recently, updated bathrooms and while we were there a Lazy Boy (all leather) chesterfield/hide-a-bed with memory foam and a Lazy Boy leather chair were delivered. Great quality and we were impressed. Remember this is a ski type condo and the units are a bit older. The exterior could use some work - lawn was very weedy, steps were cracked and sidewalks could use some levelling. Our only complaint with the inside of the unit was the mattress in the main bedroom could use replacing.
The people working here were very friendly and in all cases very helpful. Also the hot-tubs were working and much appreciated in the cool evenings.
We will be back.
