“Quiet older B&B, early in the season, just right!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Wanting to get down to Waterton for a few years now, I did so at the beginning of June with one night booking at Northland Lodge. Made a phone reservation & was able to be upgraded. Traveling from Edmonton, over 300 km, wanted more of a personal touch, B&B, a quieter older setting, far end of town and being early in the season, found the price less and fewer tourists! Traveled with my dog, Nanuq, not allowed in the room, slept in my car. But we sat on upper deck outside for abit and then a walk, up to Cameron falls and down to the lake. The B&B within walking distances of the lake and two trail heads, Lots of local wildlife and even a yearling bear cub in back parking lot. Remember if hiking with a dog must be on leash and have a can of bear spray with you.

Parking is at rear, and not evident upon first arrival, needing to go around end of the block. Lots of stairs in front.

Room #4 located upstairs in the back, not large but a comfortable double bed with fresh cotton sheets, a small fridge, private bath with shower, not tub, and my favorite blue color. Was rather coolish until figured out the small space heater and had to ask for the wifi pass code. Delightful breakfast of coffee, tea, juice, muffins and jam in an older elegant dining room. Appreciated the late check out as did a hike with my dog, coming back absolutely soaked, showered and changed for trip home.

Went through the buffalo paddock on way from park but only saw 2 bison.
and then north on Highway 22 Cowboy Trail…very much ranch country with mountains to the west. Cell of rainstorms gave moments of dark threatening skies. At one point saw a double rainbow and just missed a mother duck and 6 ducklings at side of road.

We only spent one night at the Northland Lodge, renting two rooms. Everything was great and we really enjoyed the short time there and in the town of Waterton. The rooms were nice and very clean. My only grip would be that they could use a fan in the rooms and turn off the outdoor lighting or provide darker shades.
Breakfast was nice with hot coffee, juice and warm muffins.
Overall, this is a great place to stay in a great town for hiking, walking or just enjoying.

Two nights was not enough for us in Waterton and staying with Stacey at Northland Lodge was terrific and we hope to return soon! We stayed in rm 8 on the ground floor which was our preference for easy access. Great room, shower, muffins and close to the trails, lake, town and waterfall. Stacey was helpful with planning our hikes and dinners in town. We love that the lodge has been in her family for generations. Thank you for welcoming us into your home!

The lodge was the home of a large family, decades ago, and has a long history. it is well kept up, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed coffee and muffins in the morning with the other guests and talked about our travel plans. The rooms have lots of pretty old fashioned details but great modern beds. Of course, since it is an old building, some of the rooms are small (think Paris hotel rooms!), while others for families have a number of comfortable beds. There are TV and DVD movies in the lounge. We really enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: Best idea is to call the Lodge and discuss your plans and needs with the manager.

The lodge is in a quiet part of the small town, not far from the waterfall. There is a wrap around deck on the upper level. Rooms are quaint, but very clean and fresh. Sheets are line dried and then pressed with lavender and smell wonderful! There is coffee, juice and freshly baked muffins with jam for breakfast which was just right. Very cozy and a delightful stay. We stayed in room #1, Joanie's room on the upper level which has an en suite bath and private entrance and a great view of the mountains.

There are few places to stay in Waterton Lakes and we are fortunate that this B&B is one. The staff is welcoming and the rooms are comfortable and very clean. The building has a large wrap-around balcony where it's easy to spend the hours viewing the park. This is the second time we've stayed here and I look forward to future visits.

Owner is the fourth generation of her family to be running this historic inn. Our room was a bit small, but very clean and cozy with new beds and quiet heater. Fans were also provided for warmer weather. Each room is different, so look at the website carefully and choose the one that suites you best. Liked the fact that each room has its own entry door. Would have liked to take advantage of the pleasant deck, but it rained quite a bit while we were there. Lots of lush greenery and flowers everywhere. Breakfast was coffee, juice and fresh muffins. Convenient location to the lakefront and town shops were within walking distance. Very quiet and pleasant.
