What can you expect? A huge, beautiful cabin in the beautiful rocky mountains. The inside is marvelous with large exposed beams and classic cabin architecture. The indoor + outdoor fireplaces really help you escape from that city bustle. The open floor plan was great for letting all of us guests socialize, while the big farm-house style table allowed us all to enjoy a meal together. I've also never seen a house with bedrooms INSIDE of bedrooms. That's cool. The entire house was spotless, including all the bedsheets and towels. New toiletries were in every bathroom as well. An amazing touch by the LUSH team was having chopped firewood ready for us at both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. We kept it burning throughout the evening and it really added to the ambiance. Check in was very simple — just had to punch in the door code and we were inside. There was a small mistake made by the LUSH team but they resolved it quickly. Other than that, we had a fantastic experience and I would suggest it to any group looking to escape to Golden.

Beautiful location, great hot tub on deck, snow covered mountains, quiet only 10 minute drive from Golden, where there are supermarkets, cafes and craft brewery.

The property has a beautiful view. The starlit hot tub was a hit during the cool evenings. Everything was just perfect. We fully enjoyed the stay. It is a bit of a drive from Golden, but it was more than worth the drive.

The kitchen was very well appointed to a 5 star chef standard. The bed was extremely comfortable with high quality linen and a generous supply of towels. Over all the apartment was very well appointed, quiet and a lovely place to be.

We love the whole experience of in and around the property. Facilities are amazing. So close to major attractions. Surrounding area and amenities are fantastic with young kids. Lodge was so well equipped that it’s beyond my expectations and we were so happy that we choose Kicking Horse Resort. I am, and will be promoting lush mountain lodge and surrounding areas. We had time of our life. See you soon.

We stayed on the top floor of a condo building and had fantastic mountain views from all of our windows. The kitchen was stocked with the basics and also had baggies, tin foil and Saran Wrap, which is a huge bonus when cooking and making lunches to go.
July 2019 - Charles - Netherby Australia
The lovely location on top of the mountain and the beautiful view from the balcony and windows. We used the hot tub one night and it was lovely. The apartment was clean and well furnished. The beds were comfortable and we appreciated the extra towels provided. The entry with the door code meant that we could arrive whenever it suited us without having to arrange a specific time with the hosts. Free parking was good. The internet worked. We loved our stay here.

Lovely location, stunning views. Very peaceful. Everything you could need in a beautiful modern and clean apartment. The Lush team were very helpful, answering questions quickly. We loved it so much we extended our stay :) The hot tub was a family favourite.

The apartment was like a home away from home in a beautiful location with all the amenities carefully provided and thought through! (Great attention to detail) Prompt response from the apartment manager on my misgivings about the wildfire situation and alternate options.

This is a perfect place for a ski vacation, a golfing trip or just a visit to the Canadian Rockies. It is a post and beam construction with the perfect ambience for the mountain location. The double garage will be a treat during the winter months and helped unloading and loading our belongings. We did have a small problem which was promptly attended to by the Lush team.

Our first trip to Canada and indeed to North America. We were not disappointed. Friendly, helpful people and we inspiring scenery. We also came just to sit and relax and the chalet was so quiet, comfortable and perfect for this. Looking out across the Wetlands to the Mountains, this became a “Valley of Vision”
August 14 through August 21, 2005 - Dave & Helen Wessel Forever - Chicago, Il
Inspired by the richness of Banff, Yoho, Revelstoke, Kootenay, this home has provided a central location for all. From evening sunsets to lively rains, The Wetland Valleys reflect beautiful change like autumn fall colors. Even the midnight full moons give vibrant light through the morning hours. Hiking at Takakkaw Falls brought freshness in the midst of cold glacial waters, but unfortunately placed us back in Golden casting a broken foot.
Celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, while assisting my wife on crutches just brought us closer in thanking God for his protection and grace. His majestic wonders at the top of the Kicking Horse Mountain or the change of winds on top of Mount 7, the summit of Mt. Revelstoke, the sighting of a black bear, mountain goats in Kootenay all bring joy but only temporal. My love for my wife, friend, encourages me daily. I love her very much!!!

What a wonderful setting for a honeymoon! We enjoyed perfect weather – we couldn’t ask for better hiking & fishing. What a spectacular set of mountains to explore. Thanks for much for helping to make it memorable. We plan to send our parents here sometime, if not ourselves. Thanks again.
P.S. Check out Gorman Lake for a spectacular hiking/fishing/camping get-a-way.

Wow! Spectacular view! Thanks so much to the Lush’s for being so accommodating and for giving us the perfect honeymoon get away. We loved the in-town restaurants and enjoyed taking a few day trips that you suggested. We had a great time and would LOVE to come back again in the winter sometime. Thanks again for everything. We had a blast! Loved the hot tub too!
