Emerald Lake Lodge

Paul and I had one of the most wonderful weekends together we've ever had. We highly encourage you guys to check this place out. The scenery, atmosphere, food, everything is done superbly. It's this wonderful combination of elegance and relaxed atmosphere that's hard to explain. The food undoubtedly is world class, we have never eaten food like that before. It's 5 stars but you can where your jeans to dinner.

They have this huge lodge with the restaurant, a games room, bar and lounge with huge fireplaces where you can sit and play games, have a drink or snack and just "hang out". There's an outdoor hot tub overlooking the point (where incidentally there was a wedding going on just when we decided to go in) attached to that is a club house where you can change, get towels, snacks or even workout.

The rooms were romantic and cozy with wood burning fireplaces and king size beds. And the scenery was breathtaking. And both Paul and I noticed how incredibly quiet and peaceful it is out there.

All in all we LOVED it and will be back. We had what was called the Gourmet Package which included our dinner (three course meal) and breakfast (buffet or menu) it included taxes and gratuity too which was great. All we had to pay for was our booze which incidentally is really expensive up there.

Check out the pics below, and you'll see what I mean.

I took this on our drive up. Seriously, how can anyone deny that there is a God when you see such beautiful creativity.

Our very cozy and romantic room. Loved it!

This was the view from our balcony.

The path you take to walk around Emerald lake is in the trees. It was so beautiful and lightly snowing, very romantic.

Everywhere you explore is beautiful.

You can take a 5.8km walk all the way around Emerald Lake. This is the view from the other side. The small cabin you see on the left was ours.

So Happy together..........
