Rave Reviews

Great place at Sun Peaks for a family

5/5  Mar 2018 Elizabeth F.Vancouver

Kodiak Timber Lodge is exactly as pictured, only better. Great house for a family to spread out - room for games, TV, meals, lounging. Lovely decor, beautiful linens, poofy duvets. The kitchen is really well equipped for cooks - everything we could ever need was at hand, and it's perfectly laid out for several people to work together or to gather around the island.

The location is great - literally 20 steps up to the cruiser run that takes you down to the village lifts. Easy to return to via blue or green runs from either Sundance or Sunburst chairs. We could come back for lunch, watch the skiers on either side of the valley, then pop back out for a few more runs. We walked down to the village (10 minutes easy walk along trail), and never needed a car.

Hot tub is big and well kept. Very much appreciated after a long day. Just a perfect place for a ski vacation. We'll try to be back soon!

5-Star Rating Well Deserved

Our first ski trip to Sun Peaks and Kodiak Lodge was the icing on the cake. Three couples (average age 70) found it a perfect place to ski together, prepare meals, soak in the glorious hot tub, and visit well into the evening. We particularly enjoyed how easy it was to ski in for a leisurely and private lunch together before we returned to the slopes. A+ for ambience, cleanliness, peace and quiet, great views. Bravo to you Bruno and Carol for offering such a great place to stay.

Owner's Response:

It was an absolute pleasure to have you as guests! Until the next time😄�
