My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Aurum Lodge. The place is beautiful, sustainable, off-grid, well-maintained, quiet, with great trails nearby. We stayed at one of the self-contained units, brought our groceries, made our food, and had a wonderful time. The cottage unit is super comfortable, modern, with all amenities that we needed. We particularly enjoyed the quiet and restful sleeps, sitting in front of the fireplace with a good book and the great trail system with espectacular views of mountains and lake. Friendly hosts, who keep their lodge well maintained and impeccably clean.

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at Aurum Lodge recently. We're always looking for pet friendly places who are able to accommodate both us and our furry family member. The cabin we stayed in was bright, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The kitchen was well equipped, and owners Alan and Madeleine continually ensured we had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The location is phenomenal, and we really enjoyed exploring the trails nearby and spending time by the lake. Alan gave us some great suggestions for hikes nearby as we were interested in exploring the area. Overall we had a fantastic stay, and cannot wait to return again soon!

We never slept as well in any hotel. It was so calm and quiet you could hear the deer making their warning call to each other outside our window. If you love hiking there are many trails to the lake and a waterfall. We spent three nights and it wasn’t enough time to explore all the trails. The best part was we didn’t need to drive anywhere to go hiking. The vehicle stayed parked for 3 days. The cottage was very clean and the kitchen well supplied, you just need to bring groceries.

If you are looking for a place that is not touristy I assure you this is the place for you! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our quiet and peaceful stay at Aurum Lodge. What an amazing experience. There are ample trails right in the backyard where you can go exploring & hiking. Everything from your own personal rock beach, water falls, hikes through mossy forests, and multiple places with lakefront views! This property is 100% off the grid! With no small detail left unattended. Everything from power, water, compost, and even the septic system truly makes you rethink waste, repurposing, minimization, and our overall impact on our environment. We arrived during Covid, and I fully anticipated utilizing two full cans of micro ban to disinfect and sanitize our two bedroom loft apartment. One look around with just how much everything is meticulously maintained I knew this was not necessary at all. Hands-down this is the cleanest and most maintained accommodation we have ever stayed at! Everyone in our family agrees this is one of our favourite places on earth! Hats off to the amazing couple who designed every aspect and truly welcomed us into their beautiful home.
