The Heather Mountain Lodge is located 55 kilometers west of Golden just off of Canada highway #1. There is very little else along the road for miles so there is a feeling of isolation, but since the rooms are about 100 feet from the road, the sound of trucks going by all hours of the day and night dispels that feeling. The main lodge building is a beautiful post and beam structure and is in good repair. The loft bar is cute, the main floor dining area very nice and the basement ski room adequate. The food was excellent and the staff freindly and helpful. Rooms were the weak spot. They are in a separate building only a few feet from the main building. They are motel style and very basic. The heat was a problem. Other guests complained about the same problem I had, that it took all day to warm up the room and the convectors seemed to make noise but not produce much heat. The lock to my room seemed not to work so I asked the front desk to help. They came out and showed me how to jiggle the key to make it work. Took about 20 seconds on average. Lamps in the room are cheap so you turn them on and they flicker or the switch clicks off on its own. I didn't use the ironing board since there was no iron and the ironing board was broken. Bathrooms were nicely upgraded and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is a wedding venue and the base for a hell ski operation so if the rooms don't need to be anything special, go ahead and book it. It is these little detail items that they fell short on.
