Description: "Its a seasonal teahouse (like the Plane of 6 glaciers teahouse, which is listed on TripAdvisor), located on Lake Agnes in the Lake Louise area. A 2.5 mile hike brings you to this amazing little historic hut, perched on the rim of a cliff and looking over a lake to The Beehive and mountains beyond. So incredible to stumble across. Whats wonderful is that they have over 100 kinds of teas, good sandwiches and soups, and quite a selection of baked goods (gluten-free included!)".

The Teahouse is situated besides Lake Agnes and provides both in-door and outdoor seating. The hike from Lake Louise to the Teahouse took us approximately 2.5 hours to reach. Before approaching the Teahouse, you will be welcomed by a small waterfall below and the steep staircase besides the falls will be your last stretch of climbing, before sitting down to... More

If you make it to Banff, then you'll really enjoy a hike around the lake and up to the tea house. It's a great place to rest and reflect on your day. Good soup and other foods.

It was a rainy, foggy day but we continued our hike hoping things would clear. We made it up to the tea house where we had a warm cup of tea and great home-made tea biscuits. The tea house inside seating was full so we sat outside on the balcony, can not imagine how busy it would have been if... More

the hike up to the tea house is pretty hard, if you re not a hiker but definitely worth the effort. The views of the lake and mountains and the quaint tea house are just amazing. A definite must do if you are in the area

Someone told us we had walked the equivalent of 129 storeys so be warned before you set out to visit this lovely teahouse. It really is worth the walk and there is a varied menu to choose from, the prices are reasonable and the staff friendly

We hiked up with our two year old daughter this weekend. It took us an hour and a half up and an hour down. Pack a water bottle and wear layers. The tea was fabulous and so were the desserts. I would do this again in a minute. The views are amazing.

We rode up on horseback. A painfull experience for the untrained. The views and setting are awe inspiring. The little teahouse is rustic but a welcome sight for a rest and a light beverage to take in the tranquility of it all.

A great workout with a great reward at the end!! I'm late 40's and out of shape. If I can do it, so can you. The first portion of the hike is the steepest, but your legs will be burning the whole wast and you will be breathing heavy (there, now you have been warned, but GO ANYWAYS!!!! Lovely hike!... More

The trail to Lake Agnes leads up from the hotel and lakeside, along a well defined path stretching steadily uphill all the way. The teahouse at the top is manned / open till late, as the staff reside in accommodation nearby. The views are stunning, both of Lake Agnes itself and back down the valley to Lake Louise. A great...

Consider everything here need to be brought up by man, the price tag here is still in a reasonable ranger. It is a good place to take some rest , have a light lunch meal, have some tea and enjoy the view.
