We stayed with Lori and Ken for a week and very much enjoyed their first rate hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble and they were consistently friendly and helpful throughout our visit. Through Ken and Lori we felt we actually really got to know the area in a way not normally possible with just a week's stay. The accommodation was...

We stayed here for one night on the way to Kaslo. The lodge is in Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, which is approx 10 minutes drive up the mountains from Golden. The lodge is lovely, it has a warm cozy feel. Lori was very welcoming and really helpful. Our room was lovely, very comfy bed and nice bathroom. Our breakfast was...

We had guests from Mexico visiting us and decided to take them to the Rockies for a few days. After staying in Jasper, we took the Parkway down to Lake Louise and then headed to Golden where we stayed for a couple of nights at the Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Ski Resort. What a super spot to relax or...

We stayed two nights at the Vagabond Lodge and wished we could have stayed longer. It's not because Golden really has more to offer than other resort towns (in fact, the town of Golden itself doesn't offer much at all) but the lodge is one of the best B & B's you could hope to find. Ken and Lori are...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-July. Lori and Ken certainly have a lovely lodge and know what they are doing. I just have to agree with all the other top rated reviews.

Sent my family here for a weekend stay. What a beautiful lodge! Amazing common area and very cool rooms. Ken and Lori were also very very helpful when needed. They told us all about the area and helped plan our stay. Would definitely recommend this lodge for anyone staying in the Kicking Horse area and wanting to do Outdoor stuff....

The Vagabond Lodge is a warm, inviting lodge. Ken and Lori are more than willing to pass on any tips about visiting the area, from trails to restaurants to swimming holes. The breakfasts are filled with homemade goodness; the baked goods are made from scratch. You are just steps from the Kicking Horse Resort's Golden Eagle lift, whisking you up...

Nice rooms, super breakfast and lunch with cheerful sentiment . Quiet rooms with excellent beds and clean bathrooms. A hot tub, a self service bar and the very, very pretty service from the owners Lori and Ken makes the perfect stay unforgettable. The ski area is very recommendable too. I am sure that we'll come back.

Had a great three night stay at Vagabond Lodge in early March. The lodge is luxurious and you are being truly welcomed into Ken and Lori's home. The room was spacious, with a lovely big sleigh bed and window seat to admire the beautiful scenery. Its easy to relax after a days skiing and both Ken and Lori are passionate...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vagabond Lodge is a 10 Room Boutique Lodge Located across the road from Gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Golden BC. All rooms are located on the upper level of this 3 story building. There is no elevator just so you are aware. The beautifully decorated rooms all have great views of the majestic Rocky Mountains. All bedrooms have private bathrooms with shower/tub enclosures and all bathrooms have heated floors. Vagabond Lodge does not have air conditioning but for the few days in the mountains where it may be considered hot by some standards, the windows all open to the fresh mountain air. Vagabond Lodge does not have televisions in the rooms but if you need a fix, there is a tv area on the lower level along with a pool table, and board games. A hearty and healthy breakfast is complimentary(nothing fried) and during ski season lunch is also included in the cost of staying at this very special place. ... more   less
