Recently my mother and I had a much needed girls retreat at Island Lake Lodge. We went for the whole experience and enjoyed a superb dinner at the Tamarack Lodge dining room. The food was perfection, the service was excellent and the view was amazing. We had a relaxing stay in the Tamarack lodge, enjoyed a hearty breakfast to order...

I biked up to the Bear Lodge to have lunch on the patio and it was lovely! The view was incredible, my server was hilarious and the food was delicious! It has a very friendly and welcoming vibe to it. They were also very accommodating when I asked for different food options. I was surprised to hear that the daily...

When we got there we were asked if we had reservations and we didnt. Its tuesday night and the restaurant is at about 25% capacity. We are being told that the kitchen...

After a long hike we planned on a late lunch at the Island Lake Lodge. When we arrived we were seated on the deck. There were no clients inside the restaurant and only a few tables occupied outside. We were quickly seated and then proceeded to wait half an hour before anyone even said hello to us. We finally had...

Decided on a quick 2 night stopover on our trip to Glacier and were very pleased we did, as the lodge, kitchen and scenery were outstanding. We had rooms in the Cedar and Red Eagle Lodges, both well appointed, clean, quiet. Enjoyed the hot tub and adirondacks on the deck while watching the sun go down and the stars come...

After going for a beautiful hike, we decided to have lunch on the outdoor patio. It was busy so we waited 20 minutes for a table. They sat us at a table for 6 right by the entrance, there was 3 of us. We asked to sit at a smaller table with a view and they were very accommodating. We...

We had a spectacular brunch at this amazing location. Very good service and the stunning views make the drive in completely worth it. Then we went for a wonderful hike through old growth forests and around the lake. The trails are very well maintained and they have every level of difficulty including easy walks. Wish we could have stayed overnight...

A group of us drove up to ILL for dinner while staying in Fernie. The restaurant was amazing. We tried the seared scallops and the crab ravioli to start. The scallops were tender and cooked perfectly although you only received two. The crab ravioli was also delicious, it was like a circus of flavours in my mouth however I would...

For excellent service, go have Kim serve you for dinner. After a beautiful hike and soaking our feet in the lake, we had a fantastic dinner. Bison ribs, salmon, chicken......all the sides were to die for and everything has wonderful finishing touches like flowers that are edible. Must experience for yourself. Worth every penny.
