“Highly recommendable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We stayed at Banff Log Cabin B&B from 2 July to 5 July. We very much enjoyed the lovely and cozy log cabin. Sharon and Malcolm are great hosts, very friendly and helpful, and they pay attention to many small details that make the stay in the cabin stand out. Sharon's muffins are excellent, Malcolm's pancake delicious and the fruit bowls accompanying the tasty coffee another treat. The very nicely furnished cabin has all one needs: comfortable beds, clean bathroom and shower, mini fridge, WLAN, nice porch to sit outside (e.g. for breakfast) and a convenient location within a 3-minute walk from downtown, yet very quite. Do not miss this spot, when you are in Banff!

We stayed at Sharon and Malcolm's lovely Log Cabin to complete our vacation of western Canada. His workmanship and attention to detail in the restoration of the building were outstanding. The cabin is quiet, clean, super convenient to all the places you want to go. It has everything you need. Comfy beds, mini fridge, microwave, and chocolate on the pillows! The breakfast is wonderful. We had the waffles one day and apple cinnamon muffins the next. Malcolm recommeded great hikes at Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Johnston Canyon. In addition his recommendations for flatbread at the Fairmont, dinner at The Bison and beverages at the Banff Brewery downtown were spot on. I would recommend them and their cabin to all. :)

We stayed at Sharon and Michael's lovely Log Cabin to kick off our honeymoon. It was perfect. The cabin is quiet, clean and has everything you need. Comfy beds, and chocolate on the pillows! The breakfast is delightful. Stay at least 2 days to make sure you can get pancakes one day and muffins the next. :)

Romantic, hygienic, and comfortable. The homemade pancakes were really delicious. Malcolm & Sharon are extremely friendly hosts and very helpful especially when we were in face of the bad weather in Banff during our stay. Sharon offered her help in trying to find another accommodation for us if we need any, and stayed in touch with us to make sure we were safe even after we left their cabin. In case we are going to Banff again in the near future, I would not hesitate to choose this accommodation over the others!!

My wife and I had a fantastic time in Banff National Park and the foundation for our experience began each day in the beautifully quaint and rustic Banff log cabin. It was everything we had hoped it would be and more.

Our hosts Sharon and Malcolm Carmichael were the perfect combination of friendly, kind, and helpful while repecting our privacy. The breakfasts each morning were fabulous and helped jump start each busy day we had planned. Malcolm was very helpful in providing tips about sightseeing and is a great resource for local history.

They have covered all the bases in the cabin. The room is super clean, comfortable, with free wi-fi access, cable tv, and my wife appreciated the charm and attention to every detail. Wow! What a great time we had!

My wife and I were out on our honeymoon, we had no reservations and were about to check out Banff, we happened to stumble upon this beautiful Log Cabin B&B. We thought, lets give it a try. We walked up to the door and Sharon opened up and to our surprise the cabin was available.

We jumped at the opportunity and when we saw the cabin we knew we hit the jackpot. It was the most romantic, picturesque Cabin we'd ever seen. The cabin was completely separate from the house, a beautiful gas fireplace, and cozy vibe, complete with a little deck to sit out at night which my wife and I enjoyed a glass of wine.

After I sat out for a while calmly writing in my journal enjoying a peacefully quiet night under the stars. Then my wife called me in, she had the fireplace going and the cabin was now nice and warm, we cozied up together in front of the fire imagining we were alone in a log cabin in the mountains and escaped from reality for the night.

The next morning we were greeted by Sharon with her signature muffins (soooo good!). My wife and I enjoyed our beautiful breakfast in the cabin, in bed...in our jammies.

This is our favourite place out of all we have visited travelling across Canada on our honeymoon, including The Banff Fairmont!!

Sharon and Malcolm were the friendliest hosts with a beautiful family, and we thank them for sharing their cabin with us. Can't wait to see you again :)

Room Tip: Recommend this cabin, reserve asap!

Romantic, comfortable and unique! We absolutely loved our stay at the Banff Log Cabin. Malcolm & Sharon are extremely hospitable and made us feel right at home. The cabin is in a very quiet location and was just a stones throw away to our ceremony location -- Bow Falls. Inside the cabin there is a kitchen with fridge microwave and dishes etc. We had tea, coffee, and special treats left by our hosts! One of my favorite things about the little cabin was the space-saving! Drawers and cubbies and unique hangers so that none of our stuff was laying out getting in the way. The shower/tub is even worth mentioning.. spacious clean and nice shower head. If my 6'7" fiancé says it's a good shower... Believe that! Bed was comfy and breakfast was sooo yum. We had hot fresh baked muffins (so good!) and fresh fruit.. Next day we had waffles and fruit and whipped cream and REAL maple syrup! Like I say.. Every little detail made our stay wonderful. Highly recommend this B&B. We will return!!
