Took some family and friends up there for some hiking, scenery and a pint on the patio. Following our hikes, we waited to be seated on the patio. No one came, so we sat ourselves. No one came to our table after 20 minutes, despite wait staff passing our table numerous times. Went in to inquire, they said they didn't...

Wow, what a fabulous mountain resort! The beds are probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the food simply delicious both visually and taste, and the inclusive breakfast far exceeded my expectation. The Lodges are beautiful, comfortable, relaxing with a welcoming hot tub at the end of a day of hiking. Every staff member I dealt with was...

Really enjoyed this place. Past fernie provincial park, so bout 5 or 6 miles up a dirt road. So worth it. Great food and beautiful views! Walking down to the lake the views of the back of lizard range where the actual ski resort is located are absolutely amazing! Go!!!

This place absolutely blew us away. Wow. The views are amazing. Our room was roomy and spotless. The staff were top-notch, from the front-desk person to the restaurant staff, to the gardener lady that was adjusting the sprinkler and wished us a good morning, to the maintenance worker talking about fishing. It really seems like everyone really enjoys working there...

We stayed here as the last night of our motorcycle trip and from the moment we arrived it was a welcoming oasis. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the bartender to the servers to the maintenance guy who was happy to help put air in a tire that was low. The room was spacious,...

The fam. and I stopped here for a late lunch after an invigorating ride up the Lazy Lizard Trail. We found the food to be not that great, and over priced. We had three pizzas, and a salad ... salad was very small and expensive at $16.00, and the pizzas were bland and tasteless.

Lodge rooms are lovely - 'upscale rustic' - nice sheets, towels, etc. comfy beds, balconies, anything you need. There's a nice 2km walk around the lake which is perfect for a late afternoon, pre-dinner bit of exercise. Dinner was fabulous - fresh walleye, chicken in green cashew sauce. Breakfast - included - also excellent. The yoghurt/granola is more than generous....

This was our first visit to Island Lake Lodge and our only real disappointment was the fact that we did not go there before now. We stayed for four nights, Monday through Thursday, taking advantage of their mid-week two night "Zoomer Package". We actually booked two packages back-to-back. Stunning location, very comfortable room in one of the log lodges, wonderful...
