The Lodge


Heather Mountain Lodge is for those looking to adventure into the heart of raw nature. Here, halfway between Golden and Revelstoke, resting on the very edge of the vast peaks of Glacier National Park, all doors lead to uninterrupted awesome.

We like to keep things pretty simple here: Mother Nature is our muse, and so everything here reflects that. Created from a love of the rustic, we like to think our laid-back, mountainluxe lodge in the middle of nowhere (well, it feels that way anyhow) is the best of both worlds: a homely hideaway found within the rawness of the Kootenay Rockies, with subtle hints of luxury added along the way. We're all for easy-going lodge life, where our guests set their own pace.

Take a Tour of Heather Mountain Lodge


It's true, we're hidden away, but trust us when we say a little venture off the TransCanada Highway is totally worth it. If you're seeking a true retreat that's off the main drag, and prefer backcountry to Best Western, you'll find Heather Mountain Lodge somewhere in between the awesomely down-to-earth mountain towns of Golden and Revelstoke. This is effortless backcountry, and we're so much closer than you might think.

Just a short drive off the Highway and you'll be journeying up to the lodge – and you're in for a treat. Our longstanding neighbours are the jagged mountain peaks of Glacier National Park, that boldly dominate our landscape. In our mind, 'our part' of the Golden-Revelstoke stretch offers some of the most spectacular scenery along the entire Highway 1 route, but then we are just 200 metres off the most northerly point of it, after all.

The Location


A mecca for adventure, Golden has earned itself a reputation for being one of Canada's go-to destinations for summer thrill-seeking. Mountain biking, hiking, and whitewater rafting should all be on your list when visiting here, with plenty of challenging terrain to enjoy. With Golden's location between the Canadian Rockies and the Columbia Mountain range, you're literally spoilt for choice, with easy access to the National Parks of Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho.

See Why #GoldenRules


It's no coincidence that ‘stoke’ is part of this easy-going mountain town's name, with summer days here promising long days of epic exploration in Glacier National Park and Mount Revelstoke. Adventurers can hit the world-class alpine bike trails, or take a ride on the growing dirt bike trail. Slower rest days in Revelstoke (or ‘Revvie’, as the locals would say) call for a round of golf, or paddle boarding on Lake Revelstoke.

Maaike Porter

“I guess it's the old saying of ‘if you pursue your passions, your career or business will follow’.” It was a passion for the outdoors and the mountain life that brought Maaike Porter and her family to own a lodge in the British Columbia backcountry. Since starting the business in 2000, Heather Mountain Lodge being privately owned and operated is a point of pride for Maaike. Along with mountain loving husband Greg, owner of Great Canadian Heli-Skiing, and their children, she knew there would be no better place to raise a family, and to grow a business than Golden, BC. “Everything about my life - from growing up in an entrepreneurial family, chasing the outdoors and loving numbers - created an opportunity I don't think I could have planned for.” Now 17 years into living the true mountain lifestyle, the lodge has become a place that Maaike and her family come to celebrate the area, and to share that with the guests and staff who have also chosen to explore “somewhere close to nowhere”

Neil O'Brien - Executive Chef

Growing up in tropical north Queensland Australia and being surrounded by an abundance of exotic cultures and flavours, Neil realized at a young age the joy and importance of sharing flavours with the ones we love. Completing a chefs apprenticeship in his family's restaurant, he then looked to Canada for his next culinary adventure. After some time spent on Vancouver Island, then Toronto and back again, he settled in Whistler for over 14 years. Now with a young family (sons Honu and Koa and his loving wife Catie), and not ready to give up the mountain lifestyle, Neil joined the HML team and is ready to start a new chapter in his life. Being an avid fisherman and a true outdoorsman, he could not be any happier to be in Golden, BC.
