We loved our few nights here with the ability to cook our own dinner using the BBQ, a separate bedroom for the kids, and being able to step out the front gate into the centre of Banff. The cabins are pretty quirky being very old but are well maintained and clean. Our kid's bedroom came off ours and the bathroom... More

... I found the breakfast to be disappointing. Buns and jam is great, but that was it. The room (Bear) we stayed at is clean and comfortable, although it can be better furnished. E.g., there is no hooks to hang clothes in the bathroom. Two thumbs up for the location and the hospitality of Laura/the host. Also great to have... More

Laura is very nice and welcoming host! There is every morning simple, but good breakfast with freshly baked bread ready. You can use the joined BBQ. It's fully equipped incl. herbs and spices, ketchup, mosterd etc. The cabins would definitely need some maintenance and renovation, but overall it's still OK. We had great stay and would definitely come back!

These historic cabins are conveniently located in a quiet street adjacent to the bustling shopping precinct, with rear access via a lane. In one direction you get all the services you require, in the other you get a stroll through pleasant residential streets, passing many historic homes and reaching the beautiful Bow River. Try the nearby Luxton Museum. The place... More

We loved our stay here. The location is great for the centre of Banff and the cabins are really clean and well equipped. The beds were really comfortable! Laura the owner was very welcoming and her home made cookies and lemonade were fantastic! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

We booked the cabin on the back of great reviews on TA. It wasn't until we stayed for 5 days that we realised the reviews and photos on the site just don't do the place justice. It really is a little piece of calm in a incredibly busy town. The cabins are so close to town and all of the... More

Banff Beaver Cabins is one of the best places we have stayed through all our travels. The comfiest beds, delicious homemade granola, bread & cookies from Laura and the gorgeous scenery of the Rockies. Laura & Lloyd are fantastic hosts and even lead us to a grizzly bear sighting during our stay. You won't find better! Thanks Laura & Lloyd,... More

Everything about this B&B is fantastic - the location, the lovely gardens, the bread rolls in the morning, the cookies in the afternoon, the (plenty) coffee and milk, the actual cabins! Laura and Lloyd really go the extra mile and I highly, highly recommend!

We (family of 4) stayed at the Banff Beaver Cabins, the Elk Cabin, for 5 days in July. The cabin was small, but we knew this when we booked it, but what really surprised us was all of the things that Laura fit into this cabin. It was astounding, really. There was a full sized fridge, 2 electric burners, microwave,... More

We just got back from our trip to the Canadian Rockies and had to post a review of Banff Beaver Cabins. There wasn't anything about our stay at BBC that wasn't fantastic.The location was excellent - just a block off of the main road (Banff Ave), but it was a world away from that busy, bustling street. BBC is quaint,... More
