Just over the border to Golden in British Columbia (but on the same time zone as Alberta, not to get confusing!), is the comforting Home Lodge. This is a bed and breakfast with two capital ‘B’s because both the beds and the breakfasts are amazing. If you want to adventure, Kicking Horse ski resort and Yoho National Park are only a few minutes drive away. Equally as recommended, is grabbing a book from the well-stocked guest library and cozying up in the snug, or heading out to the hot tub to gaze at the mountains right on your doorstep. They have all the amenities for worn-out explorers: barbeques, a stunning deck, open fire, movie room and dedicated places for drying your wet and muddy gear.
Lynn, the host, keeps bees on the farm, making marvellous honey which you can sample over her beautiful cooked breakfast with freshly baked blueberry muffins. Guests from all over the world all eat together around a large family table making breakfast conversation full of plans for the day’s adventure.There’s even a few Highland Cows from Scotland to spot in the garden.
