We stayed in early September and it was wonderful to be able to take our dog with us on a weekend getaway. We had a bungalow suite which was smaller than I anticipated. We had to open the windows and leave them open overnight as there was a musty smell that would not dissipate. It smelled a bit like pet... More

We like the bathtub! Very classic setting and clean. We appreciated the pretty dishes and nice pans. The resort is in a nice location. A bit busy at times but no where near what we thought based on the previous trip advisor we saw. The decor of the cabin was lovely and had great curtains. Thank you for all the... More

We stayed in cabin 24, a standalone cabin. Was exactly what my husband and I were looking for when we were able to have a weekend alone without our kids. Restaurant on site, breakfast was delicious. The cabin was cosy but had a faint musty smell, but that is to be expected for a cabin so we never minded. It... More

Stayed here sept 28-30/14. Second time in my favorite cabin!! Beautiful setting, rustic, peaceful, relaxing. Brought our own breakfasts and one supper- I checked ahead regarding the BBQ. Unfortunately the BBQ s weren't hooked up ( they are building a lovely deck right now.) However the coordinator was more than happy to offer the kitchen staff to cook our sausages.... More

We were at this property 2 years ago. This time we came for 3 nights for our 10th anniversary. We were given cabin #26. The bed and linens are top notch but I was surprised at the quality of the room. The carpet needed a good cleaning, eg, there was a big black built up spot by the couch. The... More

The web photo of the Banff Bungalow (their smallest) looks like a stand-alone cabin. As they tell you when you enquire, it is a duplex. The adjoining unit is offset so that the units only share about half a wall. In any event, it was quiet. It is quite plain, rather small, but comfortable enough. There are two big chairs... More

We spent 3 nights there. The cabins are older & more rustic than other places in Banff National Park. We quite enjoyed no tv, phone or internet service, however I still got cell service there. For the price we paid, we feel we got a good deal.

My mum, boyfriend and I stayed here in September, it was towards the end of season so we got upgraded to another cottage which had 2 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and separate bathroom/toilet. The bathroom had an amazing roll top bath and loads of toiletries were supplied even though we only had one night. Everything we could have needed or wanted... More

Stayed two nights at Johnston Canyon Resort in September, 2014. As mentioned by other reviewers on TA, you really can't beat the location and setting where the resort is located! There are several different categories of cabins available to book, we had a "Fireplace Cabin". It obviously had a fireplace (gas), a somewhat separate sitting area, small kitchen-like table and...

We enjoyed our seven night stay here. The location was perfect! The cabins rustic,but well cared for. Our cabin was toward the back, so it was quiet. It does get very crowded in the parking area with tour buses and cars of people hiking the very popular trail to the falls. Take the hike early or late. We enjoyed the... More
