Lizard Creek Lodge

Lizard Creek Lodge

Lizard Creek Lodge Review – Fernie BC Lizard Creek Lodge is a 4 and half star resort providing luxury accommodations. Rather than being a ritzy and pretentious hotel resort, the décor and ambience is more aptly described as upscale rustic finery.

Where is the Lizard Creek Lodge? The Lizard Creek Lodge is well renowned such that it’s almost synonymous with the Fernie Alpine Resort in BC. Located slope-side, the lodge is incredibly well located at the base of the Elk quad chair lift, offering complete ski-in ski-out convenience. The nursery slopes are shouting distance away, so you can even watch the kids skiing from the comfort of the bar or the hot tub if you wish!

The centre of the small Fernie Alpine Resort village is a couple of minutes walk away. However with a great bar and restaurant on-site, you may choose not to leave the cosy comfort of the lodge in the evenings anyhow.

Hotel Rooms / Suites In the main lodge building there are 14 suites with differing configurations including studios and one and two bedroom suites, all with full kitchens. We stayed in a delightful one bedroom suite with a well appointed kitchen. The lovely living area had a cosy gas fireplace and the suite had a balcony to further appreciate the views of the mountain. The bedroom was reasonably small, but it may have just appeared that way because of the ginormous bed that was super comfortable.

Condos The property has 85 units across two condo buildings. All condominiums are delightfully decorated and equipped with a full kitchen, fireplace, TV, VCR, balcony and laundry facilities. The condo style units range in size from studios up to 3 bedroom properties with a loft.

Facilities The hotel has comprehensive facilities and services to cater to any needs you may have on your Fernie ski holiday. There is a heated swimming pool and hot tub overlooking the slopes (the condos also have hot tubs), fitness room and steam room plus a coin operated laundry in the main lodge.

Pre-arrival grocery service available, internet access is available in the lodge but it was a bit temperamental and a little weak in the suites in the lodge. For those without a PC, there is a Computer station with internet access
Lizard Creek Emporium, a little retail shop with souvenirs, clothing and ski and board accessories. Other facilities include ATM , on-site ski and snowboard rental shop, on-site parking

 The lodge also features “The Spa at Lizard Creek Lodge” that offers standard spa treatments, hydrotherapy and various speciality massages such as raindrop therapy.

Lizard Creek Lodge Restaurant and Bar The lounge and bar overlooks the pool and the slopes, so this is a great spot for après drinks to watch the stragglers coming off the ski hill. With a gorgeous stonework fireplace and comfortable leather couches and chairs, this is a charming place for a drink. The great happy hour snack specials are an added bonus.

A buffet breakfast is also served in the lounge. Lodge guests receive a discount on breakfast.

The fine dining restaurant next door to the lounge is an absolute highlight of Lizard Creek Lodge and Fernie Alpine Resort. The meals are reasonably priced for such an upmarket restaurant, and the service is fabulous, but the piece de resistance of the restaurant is the food. As examples, the tenderloin is so tender that you don’t even need to cut it, and the Tiramisu Tulip dessert is to die for. The quality wine list is extensive; the only slight limitation would be that no economical options are available by the glass.

Why Stay at the Lizard Creek Lodge Fernie? Lizard Creek Lodge provides a range of high quality accommodations, great facilities, and awesome dining without being overly pompous. And the rates are much more reasonable than what you’d expect for such luxury, especially if you stay at the Lizard Creek Lodge in January.

If you like a little bit of class and location to the slopes is important, it is hard to go past Lizard Creek Lodge.

The lodge suites are very comfortable and warm and are nicely decorated (without being over the top). Many of the suites have direct views of the slopes from windows and balcony's.

It is a fully self-contained mini-resort with great facilities and the restaurant is an absolute highlight.

Powderhounds highly recommends Lizard Creek Lodge.
