“Best place in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We stayed in the Lynx cabin for three days this August. Laura and Lloyd are great hosts. The cabin had many amenities tucked away for our use. Sitting outside at our little table in the evenings was the best. In talking to other travelers at restaurants about our stay in the cabin, many seemed to be jealous! Located across a parking lot from Banff Street and all the stores and restaurants it was convenient, yet very quite. Fresh rolls with jam and fresh fruit in a bowl every morning got us ready to go out. In the evenings Laura had fresh baked cookies with tea on the picnic table. I look forward to returning to Banff and will stay with our new Canadian friends.

My husband and 12 year old son stayed here for 3 days in July, 2012. We stayed in the Bear cabin which is one of the smaller ones but perfect for a couple or family with one child. The home made buns, jam and fruit were an excellent plus. Also, milk for you coffee is put in your refrigerator daily. The kitched was extremely well equiped with micro, hotplate, teapot, coffee maker and refrigerator (full size). The beds were very comfy and the internet was blazing! The only drawback is there is no outlet in the bathroom (at least in Bear Cabin) but I wasn't blowdrying my hair anyway so it wasn't a big deal and the parking is a bit tight but we managed even with our Toyota Tacoma. The bear cabin is connected to another one but we heard no noise from the neighbors. The location is ideal in that it is walking distance to downtown so you don't need to drive. The hosts are very friendly and even gave my son cookies that she was baking that were for later that afternoon. I highly recommend Banff Beaver Cabins. It was one of the less expensive places to stay in Banff and I don't understand why anyone would stay anywhere else. It was extremely clean, and believe me I am very picky.

Had a really relaxed time here. Host Laura was helpful, friendly and very easy to chat with. We stayed in the bear cabin. Most comfortable and clean bed and a well equipped kitchen. Worth every penny.

I can't say enough to recommend Banff Beaver Cabins. We stayed in the Lynx, a cozy cabin that was super clean and well equipped with a t.v., microwave, coffee maker, and all the kitchen utensils we needed (and more). Complimentary tea, coffee, milk was always available. The hosts, Laura and Lloyd were friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. While staying at the Lynx, we enjoyed home made granola, freshly baked buns, home made jam, and chocolate chip cookies! We also had the use of a BBQ and a patio which was great after a day of hiking. This Bed and Breakfast definitely deserves a 5 star rating!

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying at the Lynx but it is definitely cozy. For a longer stay, a couple might want to...

We stayed in the Elk cabin with 2 bedrooms and tiny bath and kitchen. We enjoyed reading about the history of the cabins. We loved the location because it was a 2 minute walk to the main street of Banff. As a heritage cabin, it was small, but we expected that. NIce common area where cookies and cider are available as you check in, and then buns and fruit are available in the morning with homemade granola and milk. Very friendly owners who gave out maps and tips on where to go and what to see.
I would recommend this one....

I saw the reviews on TA for Banff Beaver Cabins and decided to stay here. The cabins are actually historic cabins and I love the old designs of these little cottages. We had a kitchen, little couch and two bedrooms, beds were really comfortable and we loved the quilts and cozy decorations in the rooms. The best part about these cabins is that they are only a block from town. We hardly used our car during our stay. Laura was also very helpful with a great map of Banff, homemade granola and fresh bread in the morning - we would definitely return!

Our stay at the Beaver Creek Cabins was excellent. We actually ended up staying at two different cabins and both of them were exceptionally clean and comfortable. Our hosts answered all of our questions regarding the area and the facilities. The central location made it easy to walk to town where there is a wide selection of restaurants, and a Safeway supermarket.

It was very quite in the evenings which made it relaxing, but there was a lot of activities close by if that was your choice.

Laura and Lloyd were both very accommodating and they will make you feel at home. They offered homemade rolls for breakfast and homemade cookies for snacks in the afternoon.

We would stay there again.

Room Tip: The cougar suite is very nice especially if there are two couples or there is a need for a second be...
