Island Lake Lodge 2018 Summer Guide 

Note: there are some days the lodge is unavailable due to private functions or weddings - visit this webpage for schedules and events.

Three log lodges are nestled in an enchanting old growth forest, perched above a picturesque mountain lake and surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. An array of standard and deluxe rooms are offered, some featuring patios with stunning vistas, king size beds and soaker tubs. Gourmet dining along with a 300 bottle wine cellar will satisfy any foodie.

Rooms are furnished with relaxation in mind - pillowy soft beds, gentle accents, warm wooden walls and no TVs or phones. Wifi is provided throughout the lodge.

Island Lake Lodge has an award-winning green philosophy, and is proud to be a steward of the environment.

Island Lake Lodge is easily accessible in summer via Mt Fernie Provincial Park Road. Look for the large wooden Island Lake Lodge sign on Hwy #3, halfway between the City of Fernie and the Fernie Alpine Resort turn-off, across from the Fernie Stanford Resort.
