About the property

11 Luxury Rooms, Large Common Area, Fireplace, Hot Tub, Sauna And Games Room.

A traditionally built, rustic, wood and stone Boutique Mountain Lodge & Spa with 11 luxurious ski-in suites within Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in British Columbia, Canada. Located only 150m from the Gondola and the famous Kicking Horse ‘Champagne Powder’ snow. A perfect, beautifully set location for a variety of local activities throughout the year.

All suites are lavishly appointed with traditional, hand-crafted solid wood furniture, sumptuous feather down beds, relaxing jetted baths or walk-in showers, private balconies with stunning mountain views.

Eleven unique suites provide an intimate, relaxing environment, allying a traditional rustic charm and coziness, reminiscent of the Great National Park Lodges, with modern comforts.

One of the principal focal points of Winston Lodge is the Great Room, with a floor to ceiling stone fireplace where you are destined to relax and sip a glass of wine, or enjoy the beautiful view of the Canadian Rockies. Enjoy the same setting for breakfast and day-time/evening relaxation in front of the Breakfast Room’s roaring log fire. Guests can also take time to relax by treating themselves to a hot tub, sauna or booking a massage, manicure or pedicure.

About Jayson & Jenelle Raffe

The Braisher/Wolfenden family that owns and operates the lodge have lived in the valley since 1909.

Grandpa Alfred Braisher drove the very last stage coach between Golden and Cranbrook before the railway put him out of business in 1912. After WWI he returned to establish Kingsclear Ranch just south of town. The farm is still ran by the Braisher family and will celebrate it’s 100th anniversary and 5th or maybe even 6th generation in 2018.

Archie Wolfenden came over from England in 1908 and built the Brisco General Store in 1912. In 1921 he sold the store and bought Fortress Ranch which later became Birchfield Farm and was taken over by his son Winston.

The farm has grown and is still home to the Wolfenden family, albeit a lot quieter than when Winston was around.

There are countless stories about this rough and tough cowboy, and we love to share them with our visitors at the lodge.
