The Lodge at Twin Creeks – Pulse Spotlight – 09.05.11

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

After a brief, but picturesque drive up Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford, a sight emerges that boggles the senses.  A massive structure that is both grand and modern is nestled amongst the mountainous, woodsy area.  This beautiful building is a Bed & Breakfast, as well as a Corporate Lodge called The Lodge at Twin Creeks.

The lodge was built in 1989 and was meant to be the home for a multi-generational family.  They intended to grow their families here and continue to pass it on through generations to come.

The Lodge has since been added on to and expanded, and while I may not be an expert craftsman, it’s instantly evident that the Lodge was beautifully designed and is full of quality workmanship.  The floor, beams, trim and finishing all came from a single fir tree that fell on the property back in the 1920‘s and was milled on-site.  Some people may know the Lodge by it’s former and very fitting name, Hidden Fir Lodge.

Pat and Peggy, the current owners of the Lodge originally discovered it after Peggy catered an event there approximately nine years ago.  At the time, it was not for sale and they lived in Hope, with no intention of moving.  Fast forward several years and Pat and Peggy had moved to Abbotsford and were keeping their “next step” options open.  When they heard that the Lodge was for sale, they knew that this was what they wanted to do and purchased it in June of 2010.

Pat, a Pastor, maintains the yard and property, including chopping the 40 cords of wood that are used to heat the Lodge in the winter.  Peggy’s past experiences as a food services manager, owner of a housekeeping business, and busy mother of six (now grown-up) children has truly prepared her for the task that comes with running the Lodge.  While she believes her best job has been that of a Mother, she has always loved hospitality and has a deep passion for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for their guests.

The Lodge is open year-round and hosts four unique Bed & Breakfast suites, each with its own private deck.  In addition, multiple rooms accommodate group retreats, such as sports teams, corporate team building events, family reunions and more.  The group areas have multiple beds, bathrooms and kitchenettes, as well as access to the yard, with a fire pit and walking/hiking trails nearby.  They also host day meetings for businesses and have both small and large meeting spaces, including a separate and private building.

For personal guests that stay in the Bed & Breakfast suites, breakfast is included with your stay.  For groups that visit, all of the meals are catered using fresh, local and in-season products.  The menus are personally prepared with the intent to make guests feel cared for and thought of. In fact, every person who comes to the Lodge is treated as a personal guest.  This vast, but inviting, space truly comes alive when it is filled with people.

    This place looks amazing. My husband could surely use a few forced days of down time. Currently undergoing some devastating medical issues in which his time is spent between his business and numerous medical appointments and tests something like this would allow him a day or so to just reboot. Getting him to go away is hard so winning something would be a wonderful way to get him to take a break.

  6. This would be the PERFECT getaway for our first wedding anniversary. Fingers crossed! Would love this – thanks so much for the chance! CHEERS!
