“Wow what a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2008

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a touring holiday from UK. Wow what a place. Great food, great company , great views. We have been slow to add this recommendation because we don't want others to go and spoil it. We hope to go back and stay again in the winter.

The staff at Mount Engadine know how to combine comfort and service with a relaxed and homey feel. I spent 5 nights at the lodge photographing the moose who frequent the property, and enjoyed every minute of it. From the chef's fabulous meals (I am still hoping she will put together a cookbook so I can buy one), to the immaculately clean and tastefully decorated rooms, to the cozy common areas complete with fireplaces and decks, to the stunning views of Kananskis Country. Mount Engadine is guarenteed a return visit from me.
Thanks to Mount Engadine for a great trip!

  • Liked — the staff, the food and the moose
  • Disliked — As a professional photographer, I would of liked a spot light in the early/late part of the day so I could photograph the moose better, granted most guests are not pro-photographers, so I can't really hold this against the lodge.

Recently stayed at the Lodge for three nights as part of a tour of the Rockies and BC. The isolation of the lodge is one of the many attractions. Facilities, service, location and management of the operation are all first class. The experience of the management team elsewhere in Canada and abroad has clearly contributed to the success of this establishment. Meals are included and all were of the highest standard. Cannot be faulted as a place to stay when exploring the stunning local scenery and activities.

We had a fantastic four days here ! It's a real gem of a place.

Lovely location, great room ( book the Moose suite if you can!) Great hosts who make everyone feel welcome and go out of their way to help.

I'm not going to say much more in case too many people discover this place and we can't get booked in again!

A real Hiker's paradise. Definitely not for the room service/ minibar types. Only thing we would change is the communal dining - it's hit or miss whether that works sometimes - I guess we prefer optional socialising but it's a small point and everyone is different.

There are renovations planned which will no doubt improve the lodge even more - we wish Chris and Shari Lynn all the best!

We absolutely loved this place! This little valley is one of God's peaceful places, beautiful and blessed with a lovely lodge overlooking it. Everything about it was incredible. The food, the innkeepers, the view; just goregeous. Chris and Shari make you feel right at home and more than a guest. It's a very quiet, peaceful place. We even saw a Mountain Lion just 25 feet from our cabin! We also saw Moose every morning and night. A great excape from the hussle and bussle of the summer tourist crowds in Banff. We highly recommend it to everyone. Not to be missed when you visit Banff. If we ever go back to Banff, we will definitely be staying here again.

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at Mount Engadine Lodge. Chris and Shari-Lynn, the new managers of the Engadine Lodge are terrific hosts and the staff that they have working at the lodge are warm and friendly. Everyone is made to feel very welcome at the Lodge and the staff take extra steps to get to know each individual.

The food was excellent and there definitely was plenty of it to enjoy. Afternoon tea relaxing with a book was a great way to wind down after a long hike.

Watching the moose off the balcony of the Lodge was nature at its best. and the hiking in the Canadian Rockies is spectacular. (I recommend the Karst hike even for the rookie hiker - beautiful waterfall)..

I would like to say thank you to Chris and Shari-Lynn for their wonderful hospitality and we look forward to dropping by for tea after a hard day of skiing in Kananaskis.

The lodge offers luxury for hikers. The hosts were warm and catered to our every need. The highlight for us was the food, cooked to perfection by Jason.

  • Liked — The abundance of wildlife to view.
  • Disliked — Not having a private a bath--but this was a very small price to pay for a nearly-perfect lodge experience.
