We stayed at the Vagabond Lodge over New Years 2009/2010.
The place is very genuinely hard to fault. It is moments away from the lifts, rooms are lovely, the common areas are great, breakfast is a treat and the owners cant do enough to make your stay enjoyable.
I haven't been a fan of lodge or B&B style accommodation before, but with large rooms and plenty of common space, you can have as much or as little to do with other guests as you like. You can be social if you're in the mood and anti social if your not.
We loved it and will be back.

Our group booked all ten rooms at the Vagabond Lodge for a 3-day weekend. Excellent choice. Some people went downhill skiing, some went cross-country skiing, some read books, some watched NFL playoffs, some just relaxed with a cold beer. Everyone had something to do and everyone was happy. The Vagabond is right on Kicking Horse Mountain, so the main gondola is virtually right outside the door. You can ski the mountain and come back for a free hearty lunch. The owners of the hotel are friendly and knowledgable. Three great restaurants neaby as well. Park your car on arrival and don't drive it again until you leave. An excellent escape from the city and just 3 hours from Calgary.

This was my fifth time to Vagabond Lodge.....and I will return time after time after time. The rooms was spacious and inviting....even with two adults and one teenager we were not on top of each other as you are in a hotel room. The breakfast is unbelievable. Scones warm from the oven, fresh fruit, and other continental foods available. There is a light lunch available as well if you wish to partake. Being the short distance from the Gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain there is hiking, biking and bear watching to enjoy during the summer and unbelievable skiing opportunities during the winter. While they do not have a liquor license, you can bring your own spirits in and have them stored in the community refrigerator. This provides the opportunity to enjoy the company of fellow patrons each evening. There are other amenities as well - a hot tub and a family room for enjoyment of all.

Vagabond was great for us. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bathroom was roomy and modern. Breakfast was super, many tasty selections prepared and presented nicely. Free internet station and free WiFi setup. No liquor license but bring your own and stash in the fridge. The inn is located adjacent to Kicking Horse Ski Mountain altho closed during our stay. Owners are super nice and very helpful with sight seeing suggestions. Golden village isn't particularly noteworthy but proximity to Yoho National Park is a real plus. Very scenic, many interesting hikes, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, wildlife, etc. Drive thru Yoho to Lake Louise (about one hour plus) is spectacular. Altho Vagabond is 6 miles out of town up the mountain, it's such a pretty and comfortable place that it's worth the trip.

Having gone to Calgary towards the end of trip and deciding we did not like the city ! We went on a mini adventure, back up into the mountains, and stumbled across Vagabond Lodge. Laurie and Ken, are the most welcoming hosts, and having spent 30 years living in Edmonton and being keen skiers, they are fully up to date on all local knowledge and will check out various hikes and the must sees and do's in the area. Breakfast in the hotel is hearty, nothing fried, but the pancakes are to die for !
Rooms are large but dont have tea and coffee making facilities, however this is not a problem as there are facilities in the breakfast area, for you to use whenever. There is only one TV is the whole of the building, which is good, as there is too much to see and do out there. Make sure you book a stay here ( also there is a hot tub ) !!!!
