The cabin is a nice layout with plenty of space for four people. However the furniture is old and in need of replacing. Several things around our cabin didn't work including the toaster, fireplace, blinds, dresser and the two hottubs at the lodge.
The mattresses were hard and there were no blinds in the bedroom so the sun shone in early each morning and made it hard to sleep past 7. The couches were old and looked dirty.
We were there at a certain time of year where none of the outdoor activities advertised on the site were running.
There were things floating in the pool and hot tub and both weren't the right temperature. The games room is so old and the only two pool cues are bent and unusable.
The location is beautiful and only 10 minutes to Canmore and 30 min to Banff.
It is really inexpensive to be able to cook your own meals and share a cabin with friends or family.
