This is a bit of a reverse question! We live in the Canadian Rockies, and are looking for a one night getaway for my birthday. We were looking at Fernie or Waterton, but I honestly didn't realize that it's a 4-5 hour drive. I've thought of Baker Creek, Emerald Lake, and Storm Mountain, and Cathedral Mountain, but I'd kind of like to get out of the area for the night ( don't get me wrong those spots are AMAZING!).
In the past we've stayed in Calgary for a night, but I'm not really in the mood for the city hustle and bustle.
I'd like a quiet, lodge like place with a good dining option ( or two) nearby. We'll likely arrive mid morning, maybe do a nice hike and just chill out. We were thinking of Island Lake Lodge in Fernie, but with the distance I'm hoping to fins something similar in maybe the Invermere/Winderemere area, Golden or Revelstoke areas.
I'd love some tips on some hidden gems!
