Nestled in the Blaeberry Valley, Black Diamond Lodge offers modern mountain accommodations for the adventurous traveler, mountain lover, and outdoor enthusiast. With majestic views, open spaces, and remote beauty, Black Diamond Lodge is your home away from home.

Karen and Mike live full time in Toronto and both work as educators in the area.  Mike started to build the home in Golden in the summer of 2017 with the help of his long time friend, and professional framer, Andy.  

Mike had been traveling to Golden for years to ski the amazing Kicking Horse, a ski resort like no other.  Mike grew to love the challenging terrain of the mountain, the amazing location of Golden, and the mesmerizing beauty of the local landscape.

Karen and Mike travel out to Golden whenever they can to take in skiing, sightseeing, and relaxing at their custom mountain lodge.

When they can't be there, they invite you to join them in experiencing the breathtaking beauty of British Columbia.
