I want to give a balanced review but I am sorely disappointed in this stay, which I believe is unprecedented in my 30 years of travel; I'll do my best to be balanced. In short, we booked 2 nights renting the Lodge building at this property, and paid $60 extra for access to the hot tub. We left in anger after 1 night because of the hostile and unpleasant attitude of Brian, the owner. I travel a lot and I am a very relaxed person, so this was an extraordinary event. Here it goes… The pros are that the overall property is nice and the setting (other than the owner) is very peaceful. It is right beside the river, surrounded by forest and nature. The Lodge itself (which you can rent all of, which we did) is spacious, clean and well-appointed. There is a sauna (which we did not use) and a hot tub (which we did use). There is a wood stove with a glass door in the living room which makes for a very nice “cabin” environment. A special feature of the property is their garden, which, for a donation, you can take some food out of. We got some apples off of their tree, some leaves for a salad, and some berries, and left appropriate compensation. Eating fresh food out of a garden was very nice. They have a large number of friendly chickens on the property, which is fun, and the hosts had provided a dozen of the eggs in the fridge for our arrival. The property promotes itself as a “spiritual retreat”, providing tranquility and relaxation. The property would be very appropriate for that. Unfortunately, the owner negates that entirely. Our unfortunate experience with Brian started when we arrived and received the orientation tour. While this was happening, one of my seven-year-old twin girls (who were temporarily out of sight as I was on the tour) picked up a cheap plastic timer and accidentally dropped it, but it was not damaged in any way. As was appropriate she immediately apologized to Brian. Unfortunately, Brian went off on her, saying: “What good is an apology? I don’t care about that. What I want to know is that you won’t do it again, and I want to know what you’re going to do to make amends. Are you willing to go into the garden pick raspberries to make this up to me?” We were all a little shocked. She is after all only seven. I will pause to say that as a practising lawyer with a deep interest in fairness and property rights, if the plastic timer had been damaged at all I would have immediately generously compensated Brian for its loss. That is the right thing to do, but again, no damage was done to it. Note that this timer was in the building we had rented, albeit in an area where we didn’t need to go. My daughter was simply exploring her new environment. Brian’s tour included showing us where the hot tub was, and he did say that when we were done with the hot tub, he wanted us to put the cover back on. Fair enough. Over the course of that evening and the next morning, Brian raised the issue of the timer a few more times, suggesting an irrational preoccupation with it, and demonstrating a clear persisting anger over it. Being an experienced traveller and being used to being treated well by my hosts, I was taken aback by being treated this way in a place I was paying approximately $300 per night for. Later the following morning, my teenage daughter had used the hot tub and had gone in to shower, but had not yet returned to put the lid back on. Brian came onto the property we had rented and saw this, which set him off again. He expressed upset about us not following the rules, and about the cost of the electricity lost because the cover was not put on immediately. I immediately apologize, but, true to his previous statement, he simply didn’t care. Remember that I paid $60 extra to use the hot tub. He also incorrectly accused us of eating in the hot tub, contrary to the posted rules (that did not happen). He angrily denied us further access to the hot tub, despite the fact that I had paid extra for it. He then raised the issue of the timer yet again, and left. A short time later Brian came back yet again, reiterated his refusal to allow us access to the hot tub we had paid for, and again angrily raised the timer issue, before wandering away. This aggressive, hostile treatment is entirely antithetical to having a “tranquil, relaxing, spiritual retreat”. As a lawyer I have literally had civil and criminal trials that involved less animosity and hostility. I’m certainly not willing to pay a host in a spiritual retreat for that kind of treatment. In the end, we informed Brian and his wife that we were no longer willing to stay on his property due to his attitude and this treatment, and we demanded a refund for the night we did not use, which was provided. We packed and left. In summary, Brian humiliated one of my seven-year-old daughters for a simple accident that caused no damage, made my teenage daughter feel guilty for not having precipitated a crisis by failing to ensure “strict compliance” with his inflexible rules (thereby wasting two dollars worth of electricity for a product I paid $60 for), and made my other seven-year-old daughter cry for having to leave a place where she liked to play with the chickens. All in all, going to Quantum Leaps Lodge was an unmitigated disaster. You could not pay me to go there again. Recommendations: If you have children, don’t go. If you want to be left alone without the “Rule Police” checking on you frequently to ensure strict compliance with a myriad of rules, don’t go. If you would have difficulty relaxing having 347 rules that you need to strictly (and I mean strictly) comply with to avoid hostility and deprivation of the product you paid for, don’t go. On the other hand, if you are without children and can tolerate these things, the property is really quite nice. Just stay away from Brian. Note: there are other similar properties in the immediate area to choose as alternates.

We stayed at the teepees for 2x nights, to be honest - I wish we stayed there longer as it was so peaceful and idyllic. The views were stunning, we loved being by the river and it was wonderful waking up to see a deer wondering around in the morning, not bothered by our presence at all. Annette was so friendly and helpful, we had bedding provided at the teepees which was really comfy and provided enough warmth (it was going down to 6 degrees at night). I booked in a massage with Annette which is highly recommended - I was so relaxed afterwards and it was absolutely lovely being in the outdoor hot tub straight after where you overlook the amazing landscape. We need to go back!

Stayed in a teepee with grandchildren aged 8 and 10... They loved it! ...Would recommend renting both teepees for rememberable group gatherings with friends/ family. Fun to be had along the river (kids had great time playing in the mud). Couldn't raft as the water was too low. Was not able to do sweat lodge because of fire restrictions. No time to get some personal treatments but I bet they are fantastic 🤗 I will go back... !!!

We had a fabulous five days here. We spent three days in the two teepees (we were a group of 12) and loved the river location, the massage table on the river beach, the mud baths all along the river, and the fires in the teepees. Although it was 30C in the day, it cooled down at night. The other two nights were in the lodge - a more comfortable house with hot tub (very popular with the kids) and all mod cons. Good views but not quite so exciting as the teepees (our 10 year old saw a black bear on the way to the loo). A couple of the parents got a romantic night in the river house which was even closer to the river... you can hear it all night so not good for a weak bladder!! Good location for visiting the Rockies, Yoho National Park...and local attractions such as the Wolf Sanctuary.
