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

Cute little cabins, a bit if a rustic feel. We had one without a kitchen, would have been nice to cook breakfast, but there is a restaurant steps away. Cabins are located about 30 min outside of banff and right beside Johnston Canyon and Ink Pots which is are amazing hikes - get there early as the trail becomes very... 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
