I found the price that we paid for our "rustic" room in the main lodge was a little overpriced seeing how we didn't have anything other than the bare necessities (as in a bathroom, beds..) There are no TV's and no phones in the rooms. That isn't really an issue seeing how they do mention that when the reservation was made, however I did feel that the price was a little much for what you get.
The best part of the trip was sitting out on the little balcony to our room. We could hear nothing but the horses. Totally peaceful and relaxing. No traffic, no anything. It was truly wonderful! The staff were great. There is a pub/restuarant on site which is nice for ranch style food.
The scenery is amazing!! If anything, you pay for the scenery and the fact that it's away from everything. Canmore is a short drive away, but far enough to get away from the hustle & bustle.
