"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!)".

good hike, good break

a historic teahouse serving warm drinks on a cool climate hits the spot. the place has no electricity...a nice touch to old ways of baking and preparing your afternoon tea.

The trail from the Fairmont up first to Mirror Lake and then a steeper portion to the Agnes Lake Teahouse was an accomplishment for us 65+ seniors, but our cycling classes helped us and we felt so good to meet the challenge. Mirror Lake is beautiful but Agnes Lake was a bit of a disappointment. The teahouse was a place... More

The Tea House itself is cute and quaint, I loved the tables and chairs. I would have enjoyed sitting outside but was lucky to get a seat at all, sharing with some lovely lady travellers. Waited over half an hour for a coffee. The staff are amazing, hiking up there and then facing a mob with no electricity and many... More

Started up to Lake Agnes, which is a steady ascent for about 2 miles, had a spot of tea and scones on the deck overlooking the lake, then headed down on the trail which connects to Plain of Six Glaciers trail (Highridge I believe). Went to the end and back along Lake Louise. Great loop hike with fantastic scenery, the... More

Hiking up to Lake Agnes Tea House was one of my favorite days. From Mirror lake you can see the roof of the tea house .5km away. As you approach the tea house, you see a gorgeous waterfall cascading down next to the stairs up to the log tea house. Indoor/outdoor seating is available & the friendly staff greet you... More

Hike up and see for yourself! Stunning! CASH ONLY so be sure to bring cash on the hike. Great for all levels of hikers, an easy 1 hour up with a stunning waterfall just before the teahouse, amazing views and worth the hike up no question!

This place is such a treat... perched on the side of Lake Agnes. Came with a group of 4 and the hike was absolutely gorgeous. Will definitely visit next time I am in the area.

I was struggling with a bad leg but I had to make the effort to see what all the fuss was about, and boy, was it worth the pain.The footpath is very good, a bit steep in places with a very nice Mirror Lake getting you ready for the real deal and when you reach the top of the steps... More

My husband visited this place along with the other tea room along the Plain of Six Glaciers hike. We enjoyed this view a little bit more. Don't forget plenty of cash!!
