Undoubtedly the most fabulous place we've ever stayed. Each public area is unique, elegant, and/or charming. The staff (obviously carefully selected and extensively trained) go out of their way to make you comfortable and welcome. If there is the least problem with your reservati

Lots of winter activities are there including cross country skiing, ice s

How early do you need to book in for the various Christmas activities? Thinking of the ones aimed at children in particular. Many thanks!
You would be best phoning the hotel yourself, we went in the spring and it was through Rockey Mountaineer. It is a beautiful place and we are so glad we saw it. It is very expensive but it is once in a life time experience, all staff were pleasant and very helpful, the hotel seemed to be full and that was around the first of June 2018.

How far is the Fairview Lookout from the hotel? Can you walk from the hotel to the top of the lookout? Planning a visit in mid October.
Hi Karen, yes you can walk to the Fairview Lookout from the hotel. It is a steep walk but really worthwhile. Probably takes around 30-40 minutes to get there.

What is the dress code at the restaurant? Should ladies wear dresses, should the guys were jackets?
No, it was casual. I wore a nice polo shirt and shorts, I think.

"I don't believe there is a room that is not "perfect""
"Lake view rooms are at least an extra $100/night. Save it since you'll be walking around this beautiful hotel anyway."
"If you call ahead of time and tell management exactly what you are looking for they will do their best to help you."
"Choose a room with a view (even if you don't plan on being in the room much)"
"Best views are facing the lake. Absolutely worth it."
US$230 - US$777 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
