We have been staying there at least once a year since 2005. It is probably our favorite in the area. The stand alone cabin have no phone or TV, the beds are comfortable and warm (duvet). If I had to say some' bad about them is that the floor of the bathrooms are always very cold (at night or in... More

Staff were friendly and accommodating. The cabin had a nice touch to it. Loved the old fashioned type fireplace.A map of the property would be fantastic in order to locate the cabin and entrance to the trail. Food in the restaurant was also great and decently priced. The location allowed us to visit the nearby sites without having to drive... More

It was nice to thank Johnston Canyon for their help and great service and kindness to us. As we had a long trip to recover from we were glad the cabin was colourful and nicely maintained. The food in the restaurant was fine too. They also had a fall special on in the gift shop that gave us at least... More

Lovely option. Great beds for comfort. The sliding windows are classic and interesting. The check in procedures were efficient and thorough. It was interesting to observe the change in weather as it appears it can change quickly.. but the weather was pretty good and the surroundings are a nice getaway if you want to get into the nature. They have... More

The service was very pleasant and the prices reasonable for the area. The  cabin we had was very nicely located. It was the Classic Pilot Bungalow with vaulted ceilings. It would be lovely to have an extra set of pillows and blankets. Other than that it was all very nice and cool to see the Pilot mountain. It looks a bit... More

Lovely lighting not the usual dim stuff. The location is very central and allowed us easy access to Banff and Lake Louise and all the staff.... very friendly. I could have used an extra pillow and we may suggest instructions on getting the refrigeration to get cooler. Our cabin was also in a good location in the resort. Quiet and... More

It was a lovely stay. Less rain would be the only thing that would have made it better but we were not there very long. The weather we understand is generally very good and sunny. It is nice to have so much daylight too. Our cabin location was very convenient to all the major sights in the area. Would like... More

We had a wonderful time and loved our cabin. The staff were friendly. We are not coffee drinkers but when we asked for a kettle it was provided promptly. We could have used an extra table in the bathroom other than that it was great. Thanks
