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...

What can I say about this place other than Tripadvisor, again, did not disappoint. After reading all the great reviews on Vagabond Lodge, I felt it was an easy choice. We were a group of 3 guys, all old college friends in our late 30's, and looking for a place that was ski-in/ski-out and not a typical commercial type lodge....

Lunch was included as well(only high time in winter ski months) This was as well varied and with healthy ingredients. We were there 5 nights and the sleep was wonderful.

This was our 3rd stay at Vagabond. As always unbeatable. Standards just get better all the time and nothing is too much trouble for Lori & Ken.

We stayed here on the last weekend in January. The lodge is very comfortable and the rooms were as well. Lori and Ken are great people that make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in. Sure the price is a little more than some of the surrounding accomodations but you get a nice hearty, all you can eat...

On a recent ski trip to Kicking Horse, we stayed four nights at the Vagabond Lodge. It is a delightful lodge, the food was great and Ken and Lori's warm hospitality was wonderful. We would recommend it without any hesitation.

This was our first time to Canada. I had pre booked the Vagabond Lodge as it looked lovely – and I liked the reviews. Having spent time travelling from Vancouver – over to Vancover Island, and back, we decided to head up to Golden early as we were unsure of the road conditions. They weren’t bad – and certainly not...

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
