My husband and I went to Field during what turned out to be an unexpected exceptionally cold and snowy October week for some hiking. Needed a place to stay near Emerald Lake, and Lodge there was closed so chose Kicking Horse Lodge and Truffle Pigs Bistro. Originally planned on 3 nights but stayed only 2. Dinner was outstanding (at TP Bistro) on our first night but restaurant closed for next 2 days - and no other food nearby. Had 30 min drive each way next night to Lake Louise. Room at lodge was adequate but no service to room while we were there - including no replacement of tea bags so even no morning tea (ouch!) I think we were only people in entire lodge. Owner/chef a delightful person who gave us many good ideas for hiking and a recommendation for dinner when back in Banff. That dinner (at Nourish, a vegan/vegetarian resto) was also outstanding and we got a discount on our bill by mentioning the TP chef's recommendation. So, if going off season, know when TP restaurant is open/closed, bring own supplies - but revel in the Elk right outside your door, spectacular scenery and a very friendly host.
