For thousands of years (around ten thousand years in North America) humans have been innately tied to nature for survival and spirituality. Food, shelter, fire, water and happiness were all found within the comforting arms of Mother Nature. But ... things have changed.
Eco-friendly. Green. Sustainable. All seem to be the buzz words of the millennium. To many consumers, anything typically associated with green usually means greater expense.

front desk and guest story At Front Desk, your needs are met. Whether it is an extra towel, bathrobe, extra nights stay or a welcoming smile, we are here to make your stay a pleasurable and memorable one.

Unfortunately, there was a skunk living under the one they were supposed to have and it sprayed. That combined with a system error made for a challenging and lengthy check-in.
In true May Long Weekend fashion, the golf courses here at Fairmont will be a hub of activity. Mountainside and Riverside still have a few tee-times left so if you are looking to play golf then we advise you to book a time right away so you don’t get left watching from the gallery!
Even though we don't like closing our pools to our guests and local swimmers, they need a rest once a year and a little TLC to keep them in great shape. The public hot pools were closed from May 8 to May 15, re-opening on Sunday at 8am.
With the arrival of the sun and nice warm weather, our thoughts turn to patios, picnics and barbecues. With that in mind, it can often be difficult to decide on which wine to have and going to the local liquor store doesn’t really help either. There are so many different choices that it can be overwhelming when you first walk in.
