With exceptional dining and spa opportunities, a breathtaking setting and fantastic outdoor experiences to be shared, Island Lake Lodge makes for the perfect romantic getaway.

Memories are made here: Romance blooms in Fernie

Locally inspired dining, recreation create sensational summer offerings at Island Lake Lodge

It likely comes as no surprise to anyone who has experienced the breathtaking vistas, elegantly rustic setting and celebrated dining opportunities that romance blooms at Island Lake Lodge.

Already known as an ideal wedding destination, options like the Mountain Romance Package create a getaway ideal for honeymoons, anniversaries or other special occasions – this is the place lifelong memories are made.

Inspired cuisine from farm and field

Dining in Fernie doesn’t get any better than the brand new summer menus in the lodge’s Tamarack Restaurant and Bear Pub.

Believing in the connections between the plate, planet and people, Executive Chef Keith Farkas guides his team in sourcing ethically raised, sustainable and OceanWise ingredients he then crafts into healthy, balanced – but ultimately delicious – dishes.

Taste the difference in such tempting creations as slow-roasted pork belly bites or the smoked beet rueben, featuring smoked garnet beets, grilled Portobello, emmenthal Swiss cheese and Island dressing – amazing!

Prizing the area’s many locally sourced possibilities, you’ll often find Chef Farkas shopping the season at the local farmer’s market and community gardens, a commitment not only to reducing the lodge’s carbon footprint, but also serving guests the freshest cuisine – be sure to ask about the day’s Chef’s Plate!

Add a little romance to your visit with the summer-long Monday Date Night offering, with two entrees, bubbly and an appetizer to share, and Wine Tasting Wednesdays, featuring a four-course tasting menu perfectly paired with five wines.

Things to do, memories to make

With almost all the trails now snow-free, and options for all experience and fitness levels, there’s no better time to get out and explore by foot or bike.

A variety of guided hikes are also scheduled, including the iconic Heiko’s Trail, Big White Peak, one of the few summit hikes in the Lizard Range, and Spineback/Goldilocks, offering the chance to capture dramatic views over the alpine landscape. Or hire a guide for either a half-day or full-day hike and learn all about the flora and fauna along the way.

As one of the region’s most photogenic locations, the lodge is nestled among 20 iconic photo spots to capture. Tag the spot using the unique hashtag and be in the running for a great monthly prize! A quiet paddle around the lake or an afternoon of flyfishing add to the recreation opportunities even better when shared with someone special, and at the end of the day, relax on the patio with a beverage and relive the day’s favourite moments.

Of course, relaxation also comes naturally at the Island Lake Lodge spa, renowned for its rejuvenating, locally inspired treatments.
