Wow! Hard to explain in words how wonderful this little getaway spot is....so close to calgary. We decided to take a short getaway to Canmore and couldn't have picked a better spot than this. We loved every it of the cooking class as well. George, the chef #canmoreorganicchef, was entertaining and down to earth. I especially loved the dinner he... More

We loved it. It is centrally located. The room was clean and well set up. It was quiet. The staff was VERY helpful. The breakfasts were AWESOME, with fresh baked bread and muffins (even gluten-free!) every day, and quiche, as well as other options.

I've never written a review before, and I almost don't want to because I feel like I've found a best kept secret and I'm not sure I want the word getting out...but that doesn't seem fair. I've considered how many reviews I've read, trying to find the perfect place, and now that I've found it I think I better fess... More

What an adorable lodge! We love the Paintbox Lodge and would go back again in a heartbeat! It was warm and inviting, cozy and comfy. One block from the main street so within walking distance to stores, coffee shops, restaurants and more but perfectly quiet. We stayed in the suite and it fit our family perfectly with extra space for... More

For those with families, the Paintbox Lodge is a great option. First, we like kids and are happy that families expose their little ones to the great outdoors. We have rooms that can sleep up to 5 and the lodge is small enough that you can feel comfortable having a glass of wine in the lobby and be within hearing... More

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Paintbox Lodge. The premises were very comfortable. We felt like we were at home....we helped ourselves to coffee/fruit/muffins throughout the day. Breakfasts were very nice....the sourdough bread was delishious!! As were the daily quiches/frittatas. It's location just on the edge of the downtown area was perfect!! We were not in the midst of...

Even though it is always to short. We arrived a bit early and from our past experience we know that generally there is no one there till 4pm check... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us again and taking the time to write your review. Wisdom from repeat guests in invaluable because they get who we are. Since we are small, our staff often step out during the day and are not onsite during the nighty. While this arrangement isn't for everyone, we know that it works for... More

Our office recently hosted a retreat at the Paintbox Lodge for our staff and their families. We could not have hoped for a better venue - the suites were spacious and comfortable, and our 'Harvest Table' dinner was at The Box was exceptional.

The Paintbox is a great place for companies from Calgary to get away from it all and reconnect. Combined with a harvest table dinner or a tapas party, business retreats can be both enjoyable and productive. Glad you had a great time and we look forward to hosting you time and again. More

I loved staying at the Paintbox Lodge. The suite I stayed in is one of the smallest at the lodge. It was so cozy, I loved it. In the morning I would enjoy a great coffee and relax on the bench window seat with a blanket to take in the beautiful sites of the mountains. The deep soaker tub is... More

This was my second time staying at the Paintbox lodge and I love it. Rooms are very clean and cosy. Breakfast is tasty. Location can't be beat. A block away from the main street which is fun to stroll down and right next door to the fabulous Tapas restaurant.
