Derksen' Suite Jasper

Hi,

Maybe someone here had a personal experience in Derksen' Suite in Jasper?

It is government approved and the owner sounds amazing but there are no photos, not on bbcanada or visitjasper websites...

Thanks

Jasper is indeed a small town and I do know the Derksens, but I have never seen their private home accommodation (PHA). They are long-time residents (40+ years) and really nice people, very family oriented .... most or all of their grown kids still live in Jasper, and they and the grandkids visit often. From what I hear, their PHA is seasonal ... they only operate for a short period in summer. I doubt that the "suite" is a full apartment with kitchen, because the zoning in that area is for single-family homes only, no secondary suites allowed. They are located near the western edge of Jasper - about a twenty minute walk to downtown (or less than five minutes' drive). There is access onto Pyramid Bench and the network of hiking trails there within a couple of minutes' walk from their house.

I don't think I have ever heard them mentioned here on the forums. But there are over 150 PHAs in Jasper, so that does not surprise me. If they have availability for the dates you are seeking and you are interested in staying there, I would email them and ask for further information and some photos.

Hope this helps, and do let me know if you have any further questions I might be able to help with.
