Me and my fiancé stayed at the Chilcotin Lodge for a weekend in September. As soon as we came in the door we felt like we would come back to old friends. The hosts were super nice and made us feel very welcome. We got room #5 and we just loved it. It was super clean and had everything we needed + a spectacular view over the valley. There is two shared bathrooms down the hallway but during Covid times they only rent out two rooms at the same time so each room can have their own bathroom. We were the first couple arriving so we were allowed to pick the bathroom we wanted. So we chose the beautiful and clean tub room. We really enjoyed the homemade dinners and breakfasts. There was lots of things to do in the area but we were always looking forward to a fun game of pool at night. A big thank you to the Van Ember family for making our holiday special. We will definitely be back.

Loved our stay here in this unique, historic lodge. The owners helped make this visit memorable. The lodge has a long interesting history and is situated in a spectacular part of the Chilcotin! We plan to come again. 2 hikes were amazing: the Dome and Junction Sheep Range Park. We felt so lucky to visit these 2 places as well as Farwell Canyon.

We recently spent three wonderful nights at Chilcotin Lodge, using it as a base -- more like a home, really -- for exploring the local sights and attractions. This is an historic building, full of authentic character, and Kurt and Brenda and their family are exceptionally welcoming and friendly hosts. The meals -- including the picnic lunches -- were superb, and all the Covid19 protocols were scrupulously observed. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the lodge in October for 2 nights. We called ahead and booked our room for a wedding we were attending. My husband booked the room under his name and asked about a government discount as he is a government employee. We were told on the phone absolutely, and they would give us $20 off each night. Not a lot like the big chains can offer, but its something! When we arrived we were told because my husband was not there for work, they would not give us the discount and we had to pay full price. To say we were both extremely disappointed is an understatement. However there are no other choices in the area to stay at, so we were left with no choice. We were then guided to our room. We did not realize when booking that each room does not have a bathroom, it is shared bathrooms. They do their best to make the most of it, but for $150/night its not what we were expecting. The rooms are tiny, just barely big enough to fit a queen sized bed and the plywood ceilings leave a lot to be desired. The staff was nice, and you can tell they are doing the absolute best they can with what they have. They offer a breakfast, but its not advertised anywhere, and they don't tell you about it. We only found out when we were leaving one morning and they had breakfast all set up. We had made arrangements elsewhere for breakfast, but had we known we would have partaken. The lodge itself and the rooms are very clean which we appreciated. They try to do their best with the shared bathrooms and one has a tub, and the other a shower. There are tons of clean towels etc as well as body washes and stuff if you forget your own. All in all would we stay at this lodge again? Probably not. If we are going to spend that kind of money we will stay at a chain hotel in Williams Lake. However if your looking for a "classic" lodge style experience, this would be a good option for you.

Hello there, First of all, thank you for the kind words about our cleanliness and friendliness. Since we bought the "Historic" Lodge back in April, 2017, my husband, son and I have worked very hard to give our guests a wonderful Canadian Experience. We thrive on making our guests comfortable and well fed as this is our home and we welcome you. That being said, your husband did reserve the room for you both giving us the understanding that it was for work. We do have many government workers staying with us as this is the only accommodation in the area. We give the workers a break as they are usually gone early in the morning and come back late for dinner. Your husband did not state that you were coming to the wedding even after I told him that we had a wedding party (the bride and family) staying with us.. sorry for the assumption on our part. I had asked whether you both wanted dinner on the two nights stay as we make a nice home-cooked meal for our guests and I had also told your husband that the price includes breakfast. We serve a full country breakfast here. When you arrived was the first that your husband told us you were here for the wedding, not work so yes, you would pay the same rate as any guest (especially the other wedding party guests) as you were here for pleasure, not work. We are not a hotel/motel...we are a Lodge and we do not compare with any large chains in Williams Lake. Most of our customers come for the Historic experience that we offer. This Lodge was built in 1940 and the rooms (ceilings) were put on at that time, even the plumbing is original. Our guests love that it is the last remaining Historic Lodge in B.C. and we have people come from all over the world to stay here. Our website shows pictures and also states that we have "shared bathrooms" which has never been a problem with our guests. I wish you would of checked out our website before you came.... I think you were looking for a motel/hotel with the modern conveniences and this is not it. We also did not know that you were bringing a baby, (your husband did not disclose this when making the reservation....he had said that it was the two of you), which is not a problem for us, nor would we charge you any more, but I would of put your family in a bigger room had we known this, for your convenience and space. We have to be thoughtful and mindful to the other guests in the Lodge as well. We had a huge breakfast all ready for the wedding party, a few hunters and also for your family as well but your husband said he had other plans so it went in the garbage. We assumed you were all together after you told us you were here for the wedding. Again, shouldn't have assumed this.... When you stay at a hotel/motel, you are just renting the room...when you stay at a Historic Lodge....you are paying for the experience and being a part of our family..... We are sorry that we couldn't have made your experience a better one...

A family run business with a warm, friendly, rustic atmosphere and loads of history. Brenda's cooking was wonderful, Kris was full of good information (well! his weather forecasts were a bit off but we have an app for that) and Kurt was a wonderful host. This is an old, historic lodge but has all the best comforts, including a morning fire to toast the toes while drinking that first cup of coffee. The visit was the highlight of our B.C, trip. We were two senior couples travelling together.
