There are many ways to get to the lodge. Often, guests consider coming a day or two early and leaving a day or two late to explore our beautiful town of Nelson, and/or other wonderful natural places in British Columbia (Fernie, Golden, Vancouver Island), or even going to our neighboring (6-hour drive) Banff National Park—one of the most stunning landscapes on earth.
Getting to us isn’t always easy, so we offer a free shuttle from the two airports closest to us to help out; Spokane, WA (GEG), and Castlegar, BC (YCG).
There is only one Spokane shuttle van, and it departs the airport at 1pm on the Saturday of your start date. This option is great for guests coming from the States and those who don’t want to make the journey to the retreat on their own.
Notes for flight times: The shuttle returns to the airport by 12pm the following Saturday
Our Castlegar (YCG) shuttle van services all flights between 10am and 3pm, both arriving and departing. If arriving into Castlegar, please note you will first be transported into the lovely town of Nelson, where you can walk around the shops and restaurants (view our Guide To A Saturday In Nelson), and then at 4:00 PM (once we have fully cleaned and sanitized the entire lodge) you will reboard the shuttle and drive out to the lodge.
If you are driving or renting a car, check-in time for the lodge is between 5:00-6:00 PM. Please see the lodge address above.
