                                                                  Stuart P.

                                                                  The house has all the amenities you need but more importantly for us has the feel of a home rather than a rental. Very comfortable with great outdoor space and a proper in ground fire pit which we used whilst the snow was falling. The location is remote but the surrounding area is stunning in the snow and we would return without hesitation. Highly recommended

                                                                  This property is absolutely brilliant, it is perfect in every way possible, we loved it!

                                                                  Michelle J.

                                                                  A piece of paradise set in a truly amazing setting, this property is total perfection and we wish we could have stayed forever. The home itself is of an extremely high standard and has everything you could possibly need during your stay. The views are so gorgeous, total peace and tranquility surrounded by mother nature's finest, breath taking offerings. This home and it's location would have to be our very favourite out of all the places we have ever stayed, we are already planning a return trip. The caretakers are absolutely lovely people, the owner is helpful and easy to communicate with. We could write all day about how truly fantastic this home and all the people involved in our stay were, we feel blessed to have had the opportunity to experience this for ourselves. Thank you Bear Paw Lodge for giving us such heart warming memories, we will most certainly return!

                                                                  Thank you for such a glowing review, it makes us very happy when we know our guests have made such good memories at Bear Paw Lodge.

                                                                  We hope you have a safe trip back to Australia and we hope to be able to accommodate you again someday.

                                                                  Oh, one last thing, we hear there was a small matter of a marriage proposal whilst you were there???? May we wish you every happiness for the future and we are thrilled the question was popped at Bear Paw Lodge.

                                                                  Best wishes

                                                                  Jim & Sherry

                                                                  Wonderful Place to Enjoy!!

                                                                  Bear Paw Lodge is amazing and so comfortable. Its truly a home away from home. 9 of us had a great time, with plenty of room for everyone. The house is incredibly well equipped and Shannon our caretaker was most accommodating and helpful. The scenic location and privacy of the property make it a real gem. We look forward to next year and another great adventure.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Everything was great and we all felt immediately at home!

                                                                  Charlotte E.

                                                                  We had a wonderful time in Bear Paw Lodge and highly recommend it to everybody!

                                                                  Bear Paw Lodge (Annual Ski trip)

                                                                  Troy M.Calgary, Canada

                                                                  The Lodge itself was amazing, the location is not far from Kicking Horse Mountain at all and it added a little more privacy and tranquility to our trip. The view from the place is outstanding and hard to beat at the end of a long ski day, when you are sitting in a hot tub and staring at the mountains

                                                                  The Lodge itself is equipped with everything you would need for any trip. From a hot tub, all types of speakers, to storage space and kitchen gear. We were overly impressed with the location and the lodge, the storage space for the skis and the boot drying racks.

                                                                  The lodge slept 9 people comfortably with the option of using a fold away cot for a 10th person.

                                                                  I would highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be trying to make a reservation for our annual ski trip next year, as well as potentially for our summer getaways.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Ryan H.

                                                                  The Bear Paw Lodge is by far one of the best spots I have stayed. The lodge itself is out on a beautiful property and nestled in the mountains. You have that complete isolation feel, but still close enough to go into town for supplies or go to the ski hill for the day. Walking in the lodge for the first time was a "make yourself at home feel" comfortable bedding and a hot tub out on the back deck. Definitely would recommend this to anyone. Plus Dan the caretaker is a legend and he even let us sign his Harley before we departed!
