The Lodge is in both a stunning and convenient location, with amazing views across the valley and up the mountain, is within a couple of minutes walk of the main gondola lift and very close to two of the main restaurants.

Ken and Lori are wonderful hosts who make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. You sense it immediately from both of them that this was their dream and their love of this area is clearly undiminished after 15 years running the Lodge. Great hosts and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They seemingly know everyone locally so can advise on anything.

Rooms are well appointed, the communal areas are immaculate and welcoming and breakfast is great.

The fact that Kicking Horse just happens to be an extraordinary location for skiing and (I expect) summer simply makes a stay at the Vagabond quite memorable and I thoroughly recommend a stay here!

I stayed at VL with my four adult children as part of my bucket list ski tour. We were all delighted by its comfort and charm. The hosts, Ken and Laurie are the acme of politeness and helpfulness. I cannot praise it highly enough

Fantastic lodge in the resort of Kicking Horse, away from it all but close to amenities. There's a pub within walking distance and a Gondola to the top of the mountain on the door step.
Ken and Laurie know all about hospitality and take it to another level, making sure you have everything you need and want to make your stay perfect, The hot tub was a lovely treat after walking and then to just relax in the beautiful lounge, play games, read books and ingest this beautiful Canadian lodge life.
The bed rooms were beautifully appointed and the bed was heavenly, everything you needed was available and more.
Highly recommended, cant wait to go back!

Room tip: Front rooms have the best views but they are all gorgeous

Two week holiday, a week travelling across the Rockies and a weeks Cruise.
VAGABOND LODGE was possibly the highlight of my two weeks. This is a little bit of heaven on earth.
The Owners, Ken and Laurie are most welcoming people, without being to much in your face. They know how to judge people and give you just the right amount of attention. You feel like your at home, but at the same time feel like you are a very special guest.
The Lodge is clean, comfy, relaxing, warm and just wonderful to be in. This is a real escape from everyday life. We had two days her and it wasn't enough.
If I lived closer I would stay here several times a year.
Ken and Laurie know what hospitality is all about and they deliver it.

Room tip: Ask for a room at the front. We had a room on the side and it was lovely, but maybe not as big as the front ones

This magnificent lodge is well worth the price. Excellent customer service, friendly faces to welcome you and assist you during your stay, lovely and very spacious room, and a superb breakfast array. We went in late summer and it was a great home base for all the hiking we did. We would definitely go back.
