My husband and I had a fantastic stay at Paintbox Lodge! The room and bathroom were comfortable and more than we needed as a base to explore the area. Erin and Sachi (at the front desk) gave as great recommendations. The highlight though was the breakfasts: Ginni cooked the most delicious meals. I am still dreaming about them, in particular,...

I love this place! Erin checked us in and provided us with plenty of useful information about the area and activities. It was raining when we arrived, but Erin still managed to give us interesting suggestions. We lucked out and the skies cleared so we took advantage of the lodge's complimentary bikes and went exploring. I highly recommend doing this.... More

On top of that they offer little luxuries here and there that make your stay that much more enjoyable. These included the delicious organic, local food showcased at their breakfast (which... More

We spent 2 awesome days and nights in Canmore at the Lodge. Everything from the room layout to the décor and most especially the staff was perfect.
