Cathedral Mountain Lodge

Intimate, classic and almost ready to open for the summer season

The last time I traveled to Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge was priority number one on my partner's must-see list. I chickened out (something I regret now) but my partner didn't (something he's insanely proud of).

Cathedral Mountain LodgeCathedral Mountain LodgeEven more than not bucking up my courage to cross the bridge, I'm disappointed we didn't make time to visit Cathedral Mountain Lodge. It closes every October and re-opens in May. Although I'm sure the snow is beautiful, road conditions become nearly impassable during the winter months.


If you've never been, it's Cathedral Mountain LodgeCathedral Mountain Lodgesituated inside Yoho National Park, which means you'll be treated to hiking trails that go on forever. And it's only a short drive from Takakkaw Falls (second in height to Niagara Falls), Emerald, Moraine and Lake Louise.


There's no spa onsite (something we hope they'll correct soon) but there's also no shortage of things to do. Guided hikes, helicopter tours, horseback riding, Lake Louise Gondola tours - nature any way you want it.

Cathedral Mountain LodgeCathedral Mountain LodgeTo kick off their 2008 season, Cathedral Mountain Lodge is offering up to 50% off room rates from May 16 to May 31. And if you book online by May 15 for a stay later in the season you'll receive 15% off regular rates (packages not included).

The Capilano Group of Companies (CGC) owns both properties, as well as Treetops Adventure in Vancouver and Moraine Lake Lodge near Lake Louise.

Nancy Stibbard, CEO of CGC purchased the lodge in 2001 and immediately began adding additional cabins and renovating the existing property. Architect, Brad Lamoureux, wanted the inside of the lodge to reflect the scenic views outside and incorporated an indoor/outdoor river rock fireplace, vaulted ceilings and oversized windows.

Seriously, they had me with the first picture on the home page - where do I sign up?

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
