The Winston Lodge has updated its offerings

Winston Lodge adds hostel, spa, and new name

The Winston Lodge and Saloon has made a few changes over the summer, and is ready to share its new features with Golden.

The Winston Lodge and Saloon has made a few changes over the summer, and is ready to share its new features with Golden.

“People have been calling it ‘The Saloon at Kicking Horse’ since we opened. We just made it official,” said owner Bill Braisher.

The Winston, named after Braisher’s grandfather, is going by The Winston Lodge & Spa, and The Kicking Horse Saloon.

“We added Spa to the Winston name because we are very busy with it here. We have three treatment rooms and a bigger menu of services. It’s become a big part of our business here,” said Braisher.

The Saloon still has the rustic feel to it, and features a new menu for eat in or take out. It also has a new catering endorsement that allows them to bartend at any private home or outdoor event.

The biggest change, however, is probably their new accommodations, the Bunkhouse Hostel.

“The Bunkhouse Hostel fills the need visitors have for no frills, affordable accommodation at the resort. Backpackers are some of the most interesting people. When I travel, I stay in hostels just like this one,” said Braisher.

“Rebranding and the new phone number gives us a great excuse to contact all our wholsalers and previous guests to say, ‘hey, guess what’s new?’ We’re always trying new things and offering exciting stuff to keep the buzz going.”
