The wilderness trip from the Saskatchewan to Alberta side of the Cyprus Hills Park should not be missed --except that if you all go, it would not be wilderness anymore. So don't come (i could say it louder, but why?). Slow drive on washed out, gravel, dusty, road. But wow. Arrived too late to set up a tent, so booked... More

Spent 5 nights at the Lodge and plan on going back next year, maybe even for a winter trip. Staff was fantastic, friendly and efficient! Our loft suite was great, comfortable, clean and roomy. There were a few minor things but nothing to hinder our stay. The pool was a descent size and the salt water was nice. Lots to... More

I originally called to book two cabins at the end of August. The person that I spoke to told me that they were too busy and could call me back (?!?!). I did not receive a callback. So, thinking that I wouldn't blame the hotel for one employees mistake, I decided to book online. The entire process seemed fine -... More

Overall a great experience. However, because they don't have much competition in the area, the service is a little below average. The staff make it seem like they care about your needs; however, service is slow and lagging. I had to ask three times for fresh towels before I finally gave up and went to get them myself. Otherwise, apart... More

The rooms were decent and clean. I was happy with the price and the fire pit and the pool. I wasn't happy that I couldn't bring my bike into the room, with no secure storage. The front desk isn't the most friendly I have ever checked into. Overall a good experience.

Nice accommodations! Beautiful rooms. We stayed in a suite with a fireplace, hide-a-bed, comfortable queen bed. Bathroom was very small for a suite. Make sure you double check your bill before leaving as the front desk employees aren't fully trained

Prior to booking, I read many reviews on this property, and although many were negative, we still booked as we really didn't have another option. We were travelling to this location for a family reunion, and this was basically where everyone was staying, so our options were pretty limited. In any case, aside from many issues with our booking in... More

We stayed at Elkwater Lake Lodge and Resort for two nights for a sibling family reunion. Despite an issue checking in to the hotel.... check-in time was 4:00PM and we arrived at 6:00PM, registered and got our keys to the room. The Lodge's computer system was "down" which caused Elkwater people, not knowing which rooms were cleaned... ours was not... More

My husband and I just returned from spending our 10 year wedding anniversary. We had booked several weeks ago, in person booking a loft suite, we didn't get a confirmation email, so we called: they had no record of the booking, so we booked again, still no confirmation email. We arrive, they had no record of the booking again. Booked... More

Elkwater Lake Lodge is a nice friendly place located inside Cypress Hill Interprovincial park which is beautiful. Only a few minutes away from the park's attraction. The staff are friendly and quite helpful. My family and I stayed in their Rustic Cabin (it's the only one available on the dates we are visiting, and Kandice was so nice in helping... More
