My wife and I had been trying for five years to get an August reservation at Lake O'Hara lodge. We hike often in the Canadian Rockies and Lake O'Hara is a holy grail location for hikers. After being rejected on Jan. 1, we got word in February that we could have a room for three nights in prime mid-August days.... More

why would I award 5 stars (something I rarely do) to an accommodation where the bedrooms are basic (though very clean) and the bathroom fascillities are shared with other guests? Three reasons: 1) Food and wine are great 2) The staff are universaly friendly without being obsequeous. They always seem prepaired to "go the extra mile" to make your stay... More

The accommodation, the staff, and the food were excellent. This is a 'back-country' lodge accessible by a private bus so you can take too much luggage but the atmosphere is very casual as hiking / climbing is our main objective. The dinners were 4 course meals which we enjoyed with a couple of well chosen BC wines. The staff were... More

We were on a waiting list for years before a cancellation gave us the opportunity to vacation at Lake O Hara Lodge. It was definitely worth the wait! Bruce and Alison treat you like dear family members providing best food, every comfort possible in the most beautiful place in the world. The cabins on the lake is paradise although rustic... More

This was my first visit to Lake O'Hara and my first stay at the lodge. It was an outstanding experience and this trip has to be one of my best ever. We stayed for 2 nights - not nearly enough because I didn't want to leave! This is a destination - not a stopover. You must book far in advance... More

We spent 4 nights here with our 11 year old son. It was our third trip and his first introduction to Lake O'Hara and the Rockies. Canada Day was a perfect clear blue skied day and we could not have hoped for any better. The valley is so breathtaking, the hiking is excellent. We had a guides cabin which is... More

I had visited Lake O'Hara Lodge over 15 years earlier but had always longed to go back. This year my husband and I were able to go for 3 nights and it was bliss. Firstly you must leave you car behind and get onto the bus that will take you up the 11km road to Lake O'Hara. If you take... More

Two nights and three days of snowshoeing and hiking with my sister and two niece we had an amazing weekend. We experienced rain with some snow mixed in and then blue skies with warm sunny periods. The views are breathtaking and the food and service at the lodge 5 star all the way. You will not be hungry during your... More

Last stayed at the lodge in Sept 2012, as always it was an excellent experience. Yes, it took a while to snag a stay but we have been returning every two years. You do have to submit your request by Fall of the previous year(provide several date choices, Alison is pretty good at solving the jigsaw puzzle of requests)and then... More

It is sooooo hard to get in to the Lodge, we want people to stay away so we can go more often. The lodge is fantastic, great staff, great food but the rooms and washrooms are "part of the adventure". The location is second to none. We have hiked all around the globe and we think this is the best... More
