Coronavirus (COVID-19): All Parks Canada facilities are temporarily closed, all visitor services and all motor vehicle access by visitors are suspended until further notice.

Mt Burgess Guest House has taken temporary measures to safeguard existing guests, travellers and our community against CoV by no longer accepting bookings for this summer. When we hear positive news telling us it is safe for travellers we will reopen our booking page.

Our fingers are crossed - for the joy of adventure, we hope tourism will rebound quickly.

Exception: if you are looking for a great escape and have self-isolated yourself for 14 days prior and are symptom-free we will consider a 3 week plus booking. Contact the guest house directly.
