Island Lake Resort Group: National Geographic Traveler Names Island Lake Lodge as One of the Top Places to Stay on the Globe

FERNIE, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - The internationally-acclaimed travel magazine National Geographic Traveler recently ranked Island Lake Lodge of Fernie as first in a list of only 13 Canadian resorts, published their "Stay List 2009 Guide". The guide is an elite list of 129 hotels around the globe with a transcendent vision that goes beyond traditional hotel-keeping.

"It really is great being recognized by such an outstanding magazine" says Steve Kuijt, Island Lake General Manager. "We also received a letter from the Honorable Diane Ablonczy, Federal Minister of State Small Business and Tourism, saying she had read the article and thanking us for our outstanding contribution to the Tourism Industry".

Set in the Lizard range of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and only 10 kms from Fernie B.C., the 7,000 acres of private land seems about as remote and peaceful as anywhere you can imagine. The old growth forest, which covers the valley bottom, is reminiscent of a coastal rain forest and holds the most eastern stands of Western Red Cedar in Canada. Add in alpine flower meadows, spectacular peaks and a subalpine lake and you see why this is truly a unique setting. The Lodge itself offers guided hiking, fine dining, cozy lodges, fly fishing and a full spa.
