Whether self-catered, a bed and breakfast, or fully catered, Elk View Lodge offers you that unique mountain home away from home you’ve always craved.  Situated less than a mile from the town of Fernie, with outstanding views of Fernie Alpine Ski Resort and the Elk Valley, our 9-bedroom, 11 bathroom Lodge is the perfect place to get away from it all. With over 10,000 sq. ft of luxurious guest accommodation and located in a secluded woodland setting, the Lodge is the ideal private or corporate retreat.  The Elk View Lodge is close enough to all that Fernie has to offer, yet far enough away to be considered a truly tranquil escape.

It could seem that Elk View Lodge was built for the sole purpose of hosting weddings.

With the Lodge located under 2 miles from downtown Fernie, there is no other venue that can provide the seclusion and mountain views yet also be so close to the town’s amenities and hotels.

The Lodge’s vast central hallway with cathedral ceilings make for a truly memorable wedding service. There is minimal need for decoration or preparation; the magnificent views ensure your guests will be in awe.

Marriage commissioners work with the bridal party to ensure a wedding that works for you. We have hosted a range of weddings from minimal vows to hour-long spiritual services.

With the wedding service completed, the Lodge offers ample locations for truly memorable photographs. The bridal party can move to a quiet area to complete their photos while the remainder of the congregation can mingle and commence the festivities on the main floor and deck areas.

With our landscaped lawn available it is possible to plan for an outdoor ceremony – safe in the comfort that should the weather
not cooperate the whole day’s events can easily move indoors.
