This was to be our Canadian Rockies trip's big finish after Canmore and Jasper but unfortunately we were a little disappointed... If you are looking at the hotel's website you'll be left with the impression that this property is in the middle of an undeveloped expanse of nature. Not true. It is very conveniently located off the main artery that will take you to points east and west, like Lake Louise and Field. The property is a very densely built collection of cabins that offer very little in the way of scenic views - unless you are on the river! Our kids and their kids - four of them - stayed in the accommodations there. Beautiful view, wonderful rushing water sound - you'd never know you were so close to the highway. Our accommodations on the other hand - after changing rooms - had a view of the cabins in front of us (instead of the original view of the back door of the kitchen and parking lot). Something else to keep in mind is that while the cabins are all outfitted very nicely, they are ALL very small. The quarters are quite tight no matter the accommodation level. The lodge is very nice with a lovely view and also not as large as depicted on the website - the power of a good camera lens! All that said, Cathedral Mountain itself is awesome and to sleep five nights under its looming presence was somehow very comforting, the people at the Lodge tried to be helpful, and the food there was quite good.
