Located just outside the small mountain town of Fernie B.C, Island Lake Lodge sits on 7,000 acres of private and pristine wilderness. This mountain retreat specializes in boutique weddings for couples looking for an authentic and classic mountain wedding experience with a touch of luxury.
Escape to the Mountains
A trip to Island Lake Lodge is a step outside of day-to-day life into the peace and majesty of the mountains. To get there, guests travel through Mount Fernie Provincial Park up a backcountry road past private old-growth forest filled with 800-year-old cedar, spruce and Douglas fir trees. When they arrive at this unique backcountry lodge, guests will be treated to 360-degree views of the Rocky Mountains and the famous Lizard Range.
Activities for Everyone
Island Lake’s stunning log lodges feature big windows, wood-burning fireplaces, decks with outdoor saunas and views of the Lizard Range. Guests interested in outdoor adventure can take advantage of the nearby hiking and biking trails or walk to the lake for canoeing and fly fishing. Or, for rest and relaxation, they can book into the spa and enjoy a cup of tea between treatments in the rustic outdoor space or the serene relaxation room, all while taking in the views.
Wedding ceremonies are held by the lake at the truly magical “I Dew Point.” With a large wooden boardwalk leading to a raised platform and the stunning Lizard Mountain Range as a backdrop, there is no need to worry about additional decorations. Guests can enjoy the fresh air, big views and be on the watch for potential wildlife sightings in this private setting. Island Lake is home to lots of local wildlife such as eagles, bears, and moose.
After the ceremony, the lodge offers a personalized three-course fine dining experience for the reception dinner. Meals are hosted in one of two restaurants, both with wooden beams and large windows overlooking the Rocky Mountains. During warm evenings guests can go out on the large deck for fresh air, and colder evenings can be warmed up by the large wood-burning fireplace.
