My wife and I visited Storm Mountain Lodge for one night while vacationing in the Banff area. It's a great opportunity to experience something uniquely rustic with cabins that were originally built in 1922. Unplug and unwind in this spectacular setting and imagine what it was like for those early settlers of years gone by. All nostalgia aside, the meal... More

After eating at Storm Mountain Lodge you might think you are in New Orleans or New York highly rated restaurant. The food is simply wonderful, the flavour combinations are amazing. Both of us ordered Bison and we asked for some modifications due to dietary restrictions that chef did superbly creating a completely new dish on the fly. For appetizer we... More

We checked this place out in April while on a ski trip. This time, staying nearby (RV'ing) and hiking the local trails, we went there for supper. Without a reservation, they offered to seat us at 5 p.m., giving us just time for a pint by the fireplace to reflect on our day outside. We began with a shared plate:... More

By dumb luck we booked these cabins. They are not quite to Lake Louise which was a blessing. Lake Louise is so small and crowded. Then, to be lucky enough to have such amazing food in a cabin setting was just what we look for in a vacation experience. This place is a gem!

We loved our meal at Storm Mountain Lodge. There is a limited selection, but our dinners were made with care and attention. We enjoyed our cider and wine selections and passed the time with some artisan bread. Some may feel the serving size is small, but each bite was heavenly and we had enough room to enjoy the trio of... More

We were driving west from Banff and stopped for dinner, and got far more than we expected. The lodge is old, unpretentious, and charming right down to the creaking floorboards. The service was friendly and impeccable, and the food was heavenly. If you are looking for Hungry Jack portions after a day on the trails, go elsewhere. If you want... More

We stopped in for lunch on the way to BC. The food and service were excellent! My husband has the bison burger and I had the open faced sandwich. Highly recommend stopping in.

We spent a couple of nights at the lodge. Our cabin was comfortable, with both radiators and wood log burning fire. Breakfast and dinners were all very good quality, staff friendly. Our only complaints are: (1) cabin floor was completely covered in soot which we noticed when getting in to bed with dirty feet. Asked front desk for it to... More

Surprise stop by my husband led to our discovery of this mountainside delight. Not only is the lodge rustic and inviting, the staff is warm and welcoming. Hubby and I shared the charcuterie platter and glass of vino...just divine!! We have travelled passed this roadside lodge regularly en route to and from our BC cabin, and now I am happy... More
