Reviewed 22 August 2014

As a group of 20, we have just spent 4 nights at Purcell. Without hesitation I can say it was one of the highlights of our year to date. The location is second to none, the lodge itself was welcoming and clean and had all the comforts of home. The staff including the manager, cook, housekeeper and guides were extremely competent in each of their roles, they all were professional, friendly, knowledgeable, kind and hospitable and contributed in a significant way to the success of the week - thank you to them all. We will certainly recommend this trip and hope to repeat it again sometime in the not too distant future.

This was an outstanding 4 days. We had a group of twenty 50-70 year olds that have mixed hiking experience, with some preferrring easier meadow hikes and others who have quite extensive experience who wanted to experience strenuous hiking and ridge scrambling as well as some of the meadow wandering experience. Our guides quickly assessed our capabilities and made sure that the experience was optimal for all. We could not have hoped for better guides than Kevin, Mark and Tamara. The cuisine was excellent and we couldn't have epected better accommodations and housekeeping in a relatively remote location. In addition, it was a treat to follow the daily work of the Artist in Residence, Charlie Easton.

We were a group of 10 couples staying at Purcell Mountain Lodge for 4 nights and 4 days of hiking. The hiking and scenery around the lodge is fantastic. There is something for everyone - whether you like to stroll the beautiful high meadows or tackle some of the neighbouring peaks and ridges. Everything was first class from the quality of the accommodations to the excellent cuisine. It is rare to be able to enjoy the back country with hot showers, flush toilets and excellent prepared meals. The guides were excellent and tailored the various hikes to the interests and capabilities of everyone in the group. A great way to spend 4 days in the mountains with friends who enjoy the same.

Room Tip: All rooms are essentially the same. All views are excellent and in close proximity to bathrooms and...

In September we enjoyed 5 nights at the lodge, painting the amazing landscape of the Selkirk & Purcell Mountains. At the end of each creative day we enjoyed lounging by the fire, chatting about the challenges & rewards of painting "en plein air". Our hunger was satisfied by the ultimate of gourmet creations by Stephan, our extraordinary "singing" chef. After of evening of building friendships we retired to the most comfortable of private rooms. The luxury of hot morning showers, indoor plumbing & electrical access is more than I would have expected in the middle of the wilderness! Thanks to the guides Doug & Kristina & our housekeeper Angie for making us feel like family. This is an amazing backcountry experience with all the comforts of home.

Room Tip: The corner rooms with high ceilings and queen beds are great for couples. Families will enjoy the ro...

We recently spent a week at Purcell Lodge -- our fourth winter visit! The skiing is wonderful, the guiding fantastic. The lodge itself is beautiful and wonderfully comfortable and spacious. There are plenty of showers, flush toilets, and sitting areas -- with lovely decor. The chef, Stefane, is not only a wonderful chef but also a wonderful host for the lodge. We miss his cooking now that we are home! If you don't ski, but like to snowshoe or ski tour, you should consider this lodge if you are looking for a backcountry winter experience. Enjoy the wood fired sauna, and the excellent beer and wine selection. And the peace and serenity.
