  • Here you can dive for hours in the life and the history of the development of Canada. A must on the Trans-Canada Hwy

  • We only stopped here to take photos but it is a great spot to look back on the lake and hopefully catch a passing train!  more »
  • From the Pioneer style village to the Round House with Antiques, this place is a must see for the whole family. The restaurant also has good food.  more »

  • This place has the SOFTEST pillows. Girlfriend and I have never slept better away from home than we did here. The gift shop attached was a good place to pick up souvineers. The diner was delicious. Can only comment on their breakfast, but their French toast was incredible. The ghost town attached is absolutely amazing to visit if you have the time. Filled with older style houses, automobiles, and information for those looking to learn. Highly recommended to stay here if you're driving through and looking for a place to stop.
  • "Unique" only begins to describe this place. It is a comfortable and reasonably priced collection of odd things from the last several decades. They sell cassette tapes and iPod accessories in the gift shop. The restaurant still serves veal cutlet. The rooms are fairly normal but may only have one circuit breaker, so it's a gamble to run the microwave if the fridge is plugged in. The ghost town museum is at least 12 times more weird.
  • Cool place to stop if time permits on a trip. Located close to Revelstoke set off a scenic backdrop next to the lake with ability to rent equipment for a day on such. The lake does get rather choppy at times (work with railway that operates adjacent and see the change in the lake very rapidly with storms or changing wind patterns). Ghost town located at the site as well which is entertaining to take children to and learn some historical facts as buildings were relocated from various parts across BC. Have never stayed over night in the hotel but is quite popular with tourists and visitors.
  • I wish I could rate the ghost town and the restaurant separately. This place was just a pit stop of a couple hours for us so I can't speak to the quality of the hotel. Ghost town was pretty fun, entertaining for the price and gave us something to do for a couple of hours to stretch our legs. The buildings that make up the town are all filled with antiques and objects from the past with plaques to give information. The mannequins in the setups are pretty terrible/creepy but I like spooky stuff so I actually enjoyed them. The trains and old cars were also fun to look at. I'd give the ghost town 4 stars. The restaurant served ok food. Not bad but not really good either. It's reasonably priced. The views from the dining area are quite nice too. Unfortunately I think they were fairly under staffed when we went. We were sat at a table for at least 20 minutes before a waitress came by. ( The place was MAYBE half full so it wasn't spectacularly busy ) The waitresses apologized and took our orders quickly. She brought our tea and coffee right away. I ordered a bunless bacon cheeseburger and salad which came quickly but had no bacon. At about the 30 minute mark we got glasses of water after asking for them twice. The burger seemed to be just a frozen patty heated on a grill. Tasted fine but nothing fancy. The ceasar salad was pretty much tasteless. Again I think this was just a matter of the place being understaffed because the season is winding down? Either way I'd give the restaurant 2 stars. Would definitely revisit the ghost town but next time I'll go somewhere else to eat.
  • Good road trip pit stop. Rooms are outdated and could use an upgrade. The pool facilities are in serious need of a makeover. The garden and lake facilities are really nice and we'll kept. There is a small restaurant in the hotel, as well as a cafeteria. Hotel and restaurant staff are friendly but the service is slow and can take a while to get service when is busy.
