Our stay at the JC Resort "made" our first trip to Canada. The cabins were clean, "rustic" in appearance but with comfortable beds and furnishings. A hot cup of coffee in the morning listening to the rushing water, evening stroll up the falls, dinner and wine on the restaurant deck, and even a grazing elk on the grounds. Nice kitchenette,...

Johnston Canyon Resort worth the stay. So cute wee cabin in the wilderness and the location to be able to do the Johnston Canyon Walk worth every dollar you pay for your accommodation. We arrived in the afternoon and then leisurely did the Johnston Canyon Walk and returned to have a beautiful meal at the on site restaurant on their... More

Stayed here for three nights July 2009 for a honeymoon have returned to visit the restaurant and scenery alone twice.. The rustic cabins create a very nice romantic ambience... Food at the on-site restaurant is very good you must try the blueberry pancakes they are out of this world... The area around the falls and walking through the mountain is... More

We stayed at one of the Johnston Canyon Resort cabins for 5 days and used it as our base to explore the Banff area. The resort was very nice and the staff we very helpful. The cabin was clean and we had no complaints. There are only two downsides to the place. First, it is a major tourist attraction which... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroomed chalet close to the restaurant, with views through the trees of the river. The veranda has chairs which was nice for watching the walkers go by (just a shame about the mosquitoes). The cabin was lovely inside. It was rustic, and a little dark, but spacious with pretty much everything you could need. The... More

Everything about this cabin was awesome, right in front of the canyon, small, cosy and warm, nice bed, clean and well kept. The only reason why I've given it 4 stars was because of the shower! It didn't stay at a constant temperature and after a long hike in the sun I'd like to have a shower where I can... More

Our first impressions of the Resort were very good. It was somewhat chilly when we arrived late in the evening and at check-in we found our registration form had already been filled out so all we had to do was verify the info and sign. Then we walked into a heated cabin, especially appreciated by my wife. Our rustic, simple... More

Happy to leave this review. This location is the best I've seen for customer care. A misplaced item found and being sent back to us. Besides that I am in love with the vintage charm of these beautiful cabins. Nice remote location and private. Will certainly return without a doubt!!! The trail is a must and great to take photos....

We stayed here for 4 nights in cabin 24, and we couldn't ask for more! Nothing special on view or anything but for the price we got a rustic cabin feel with the amenity of a full bathroom which was perfect. Check in was a breeze and you are literally just steps from the start of Johnson's canyon which is... More

We stayed three nights in a river front cabin. Quite pleased - our cabin was updated, spacious and clean. Setting was lovely. Did not eat in the restaurants so I can't comment on them. Staff in store/restaurant area not overly welcoming (maybe borderline rude), but staff at checkin/checkout were fine.
