By far the best experience. Our room was perfect, you are in a log building and the room has all the amenities required.There are no tv's or in room phone which was alright as being up there you want to spend as much time as possible experiencing the outdoors. After a day hiking the trails the dinner was fabulous. All...

Highly recommended if you are in the area. The food was delicious and original. Everything from the appies to desert was thoughtfully prepared and unique in flavour and presentation. We ate outside on a warm sunny day with Family and everyone was pleased and happy to make the trek. About that trek, it is a good 15 -20 mins on...

We saw their brochure at a Travel BC stop and decided to give it a try. The 20 minute drive up the mountain was well worth it. What a beautiful place! Gorgeous view and excellent food, especially the salmon omelette. I can't wait to go back again.

We stayed here once before and I was longing to come back. Finally, we did for July long weekend this year and fell in love with the lodge all over again. The last time around my only "complaints" were the massage treatment quality and wait times at the restaurant, which still did not detract from the overall quality and appeal...

We rode the Lazy Lizard up and found our reward at the rustic Bear Lodge Restaurant on the deck overlooking the beautiful lake and mountains. The food and service were just right and we we're delighted with the vegetarian selection of the innovative, delicious roasted beet sandwich. It's worth the grind up and the spin back down is sweet indeed.

Although this is not too far from where we live, this was our first time and was for an anniversary getaway. Our room in a log building was good with a nice shared sitting area and coffee and tea service, plus a hot tub on the deck. The views of the Lizard Range are just stunning, especially from the restaurant,...

We went there to have lunch imagining some quick food... The place is absolutely gorgeous. The food was delicious. The day was beautiful and it just sparked an incredible desire to go back and experience that magical place in winter- if just we can afford the expensive cat skiing they offer!
