The quality of the food matches the fishing and the Rocky Mountain ambience, ensuring that meals rank among our guests’ favourite memories. We serve without the pretense of 5 star restaurants but deliver meals that rival their quality and enjoyment. Breakfast includes omelets, homemade pancakes with a variety of berries, real maple syrup; egg dishes – like frittatas or Eggs Benedict; fresh muffins still hot from the oven; yogurt; fresh fruit; and homemade jams. We don’t forget the meat – bacon, ham, or sausages are generally served with each breakfast. Lunch can either be an in or out experience, depending on the weather and your desire. On poor weather days, we will prepare hot meals of soup, chili, or stews with fresh rolls, beer bread, or biscuits. For those wishing to fish, hike, or paddle all day, we offer packed lunches. Dinners are our favorite time as we work our bbq magic to prepare beef tenderloin, pork tenderloin, rack of lamb, ribs, etc. Enjoy your favorite items while relaxing with a beverage of your choice. We serve a complimentary glass of wine with supper. Please note we are able to cater to those guests who have special food requirements – just let us know at the time of booking, and we will be happy accommodate your request.
Fortress Lake Retreat’s facilities are cozy and definitely comfortable. Our 6 private guest cabins are inviting and warm, framed and paneled in tongue and groove pine, with a canvas exterior. Each cabin has a queen and single bed arrangement and are furnished with unique hand-crafted log beds. Beds have 3″ memory foam, and come with new linens, pillows, and duvets. The cabins provide an inviting atmosphere where you can enjoy personal time. The cabins are bright, clean, and well kept. All cabins are furnished with wood stoves for a little extra warmth during those cooler spring or autumn nights. Our cabins are literally surrounded by spectacular, towering mountain peaks and glaciers.
The Retreat is comprised of guest cabins, a lounge/dining yurt, kitchen yurt, shower yurt, the guide shack, two outdoor flush toilets, and a utility shed housing our solar power system that runs our fridges and freezers, lighting, pressurized water system, stereo, and a few other utilities. It’s simple, but considering how remote we are, it’s surprisingly comfortable.
