A little piece of Bavaria in British Columbia's Kootenay Rockies, the restored 1890s town of Kimberley charms with pedestrian-only walkways and Alpine architecture, verdant parks and gardens, and cute restaurants and cafes. But at an elevation of 3,670 feet, it's also one of the highest cities in the country, granting visitors and its 6,700 year-round residents access to mountains of outdoor recreation. Skiing dominates wintertime diversions, while summer is abuzz with hikers, bikers, golfers, and fishermen. Even culture vultures will find something to love, as the City of Festivals, as Kimberley is known, is alive with theater, music, and art throughout the year.
Just five minutes from the town center, Trickle Creek Lodge boasts not only a prime location at the base of Kimberley Alpine Resort—with ski-in/ski-out access—but also the charming accoutrements you'd expect from a Bavarian enclave in the mountains, with plenty of lodgepole pine and stone touches throughout.
Situated right next to Trickle Creek Golf Resort, the lodge features two hot tubs and a year-round outdoor pool, a fitness facility, and a barbecue area. It's also home to two restaurants. A full-service eatery with indoor/outdoor seating, Montana's Cookhouse serves up a huge menu of international food and beer, while the casual Slopeside Market & Deli offers breakfast (and in winter, lunch), plus grab-and-go bites.
Each of 80 deluxe suites comes with a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a balcony, and complimentary wireless Internet. Studio rooms are equipped with a king-size bed and a pullout couch, while one-bedroom units feature separate sleeping and living areas.
