Our stay was rather charming in such a lovely setting. The nature was quite spectacular. The mountains and closeness of them to our cabin created a surreal experience. The cabins had a nice character to them. The lodge has a nearby restaurant and gift shop and seemed reasonable The staff were friendly and helpful.

We were glad to see our nice and very clean cabin. It was a long trip and needed some good rest and peace. The location next to the trail to the waterfalls is very convenient and we had friendly service and attention. The prices were good too. Would like to return someday in the spring.

We were in a cabin that was a bit different than the others and had not seen something like it elsewhere. Banff and Lake Louise are close to the resort which was convenient without having to drive too much. The mountains appeared very close compared to their actual distance. We understand the snow stays on them year round. The value... More

They appear to be doing a wonderful job. The location was very nice. The cabin was clean and most affordable. It was a well situated and well decided excursion. Nice not having having to travel far to see the near by sights. The Banff Gondola and Icefields are reasonably close too. The walk next to the resort has cool waterfalls.... More

The resort and location is very inspiring. Away from the noise of the big city and buildings. The nature is so clean and refreshing. The cabins are not too small and had a nice decor with them. The prices were reasonable too. Wish there were more places like this in other areas as we like to explore a fair bit.

We would have liked to stay a bit longer but had to return back. The linens are nicely appointed and we found our cabin was clean. It was nice to have an opportunity to experience scenery without all the crowds and noise. Very peaceful. If possible we would recommend a cabin a bit bigger. They have a variety of cabins... More

Our stay was a bit unusual yet the cabin a good size and comfortable.. It was nice to be back in familiar territory. The weather was very crisp and pleasant while we were there. There was also a good vision of the mountains in the morning. The opportunities to see wildlife were interesting too. We did not see it but... More
