Family Weekend Away
This was our second time at Hope Lake Lodge. First time in the winter. Resort was great. Kids enjoyed the waterpark (and even liked being in the pool outside). Skiing conditions were amazing (we came in right after the first big snow of the season). Staff is super friendly. Looking forward to coming back next winter.

Amazing stay over winter break with kids and grandkids. Waterpark and pools were great. Not small but not so large either. We plan on returning this summer.

The lodge is undergoing renovations, so it's probably not as pretty as it can be, but that didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying our stay. The suite was spacious, yet cozy. We had everything we needed in order to prepare the food we brought, and we also enjoyed our dinner at the steakhouse. Every staff person we encountered was friendly and helpful. I can't wait to come back and get a balcony!

Even though it was currently being renovated - it did not impact our stay. Rooms were remarkable clean. Dinner was amazing on site in Carvers steakhouse. Really enjoyed the hot tub/heated pool that is accessible inside and goes outdoors. Lovely in the moonlight.
