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

We stayed for four nights - and had the last lodge before the woods - which meant we didn't have to worry about other peoples cars driving passed. We also had a lovely porch overlooking the canyon walk. The lodge was lovely and rustic - and quite comfy. The kitchen didn't have an oven - and could do with more... More

A super place to stay, great cosy cabin in the woods, really comfy bed and an awesome retreat after a long days travels or adventure, its so peaceful at night so ensure a good night sleep! Reception friendly and helpful. Ideal if you don't want to be in town to escape the crowds. A lovely 40 minute drive from Banff... More

Arrived at the destination a bit early and were able to check in early after some slight back and forth. We were able to change cabins to the ones that overlook the beginning of the Johnson Canyon trail. Awesome sound of the river beneath us. The cabins themselves are very nice. The exteriors show some wear from the elements, but... More

This resort is a great place to get away for a weekend, relaxing, quiet etc. The cabins are so cute, and this is a definite upgrade from camping. Nice shampoo/conditioner/soap/towels in bathroom. Be warned, no TV! They have TVs with old-time VHS players built in and you can "rent" VHS movies from the café but no TV reception at all.... More

We recently stayed in a standard cottage for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful surrounds. The bed was comfortable and the facilities had everything we needed. The only downfall of the place was the amount of mosquitoes around at all times of the day and so that made it challenging to enjoy the front porch. The restaurant has 2... More

I got a confirmation e-mail, however the reservation for the 4 person bungalow was only made for 3 nights instead of 3. Our 4 person party had to move for... More

Very nice cabins. We rented three cabins over the August long weekend. All cabins were nice. The resort area was very quiet and peaceful. Our extended family of 9 people plus one dog had a wonderful time. The kitchen was very nice with just about everything we needed to make large meals. The BBQ area is provided at no charge... More

It was awesome. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Banff. We were there during one of the largest floods ever. And me and my friend decided to leave so we could make it home. They didn't charge us for the extra day. ABSOLUTELY amazing. Very kind. Told us to call them of we couldn't make it out... More

We have a lovely stay at this resort. The location is wonderful. It's great to beat the crowds for the hike. Only issues are it's a tad far from banff itself and that the cabin had no AC so the cabin was extremely hot and uncomfortable at night. Great staff! Very friendly. Also great place when you have a pet.
