I stayed at VL with my four adult children as part of my bucket list ski tour. We were all delighted by its comfort and charm. The hosts, Ken and Laurie are the acme of politeness and helpfulness. I cannot praise it highly enough

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 ...More 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 with nothing fried. There is absolutely no cooking facilities of any sort(not even a microwave) for guest use. Less

From what I remember, no. There is a big fridge in common room that everyone can access. The common is only 1 minute from guest rooms.
