It's to believe that Calgary International Airport is only 120 kms or a 75-minute drive away when you're sipping a beverage on the sun-drenched deck of Engadine Lodge watching the wildlife activity in the idyllic meadows.

great FOOD. great SERVICE. great CLEANLINESS.

This place is completely worth it and unforgettable as a stop for an awesome meal (an abundant spread of savoury and sweet that is called "Tea" from 3-5 pm) is a perfect way to cap a day's exploring in the beautiful surrounding area.

Not only that, "The Engadine Sessions" and music being recorded up there as well as concerts adds a whole other dimension to what is already a stunning place to visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are just awesome. I got to check many of them out and have to say you can't go wro...

It was soooo quiet!
We had a lovely two night stay at the Lodge, enjoying a comfy room, tranquil surroundings, friendly staff and fellow guests, great homecooked meals. Chris and Shari-Lynn have a gift of making everyone feel quite at home. It's a pricey retreat but it is a special spot and worth the splurge if you're able. If overnight accommodation is out of range for you, at least enjoy the trails in the area and reserve tea at the Lodge. The fact that the spot is open to the public for afternoon tea is a wonderful feature!

The lodge is located in the wilderness, making it a unique position for whoever want to experience true remote getaways like me.

The facilities, food as well as service are outstanding: The archetecture is swiss chalet style with two cozy sitting rooms and one big dining room facing mountains. It is good to see animals like moose walking across the field, when you are having breakfast. Food is tasty and plentiful. Service stands out best as I feel much welcomed by a warm friend.

I am fortunate to spend Canadian Thanksgiving. Truly unique and memorable!

The lodge provides mountain gears, sticks, bags and etc. So even if you are not fully equipped, it is still possible to do an easy-to-moderate day hiking around.

Hope Chris and Sherry can renew the contract, and I definitely look forward to coming back again.

In 2005, we chanced upon the location of this lodge while trying to find a day walk between Canmore and Waterton Lakes NP. There was female moose and her youngster on the meadow there and we resolved, if ever we returned to the Canadian Rockies, we would aim to stay at Mount Engadine. We were nearly put off by the requirement (unless one books at the last minute) to stay for two nights but, if anything, the area demands more than this, despite the expense. There are walks aplenty in uncrowded terrain, friendly staff, excellent accommodation, and superb 'all in' food to enjoy whatever the weather. So very different from the more frequented national parks nearby. The only snag is the unpaved road on which you take a bit a risk if your hire car forbids such driving. But 'go for it' - or even just take a walk in the area and then go for tea on a day trip from Canmore/Banff/Calgary. You won't be disappointed. And, by the way, the moose - male and female - still come out early morning and at supper time. Such a privilege to see them - and indeed to stay at this wonderful lodge.

Went hiking for the day, then went to the lodge for some sweets and coffee. The lodge and views are amazing. Its incredible to know that we have such places in our own back yard. The staff are incredible, making sure that they speak to every person that walks thru the door. We will be back several more times this year. Truly a wonderful place, thank you

A very cozy lodge in a beautiful location close to Banff and Lake Louise, but far enough from the hoards of tourists that seemed to congregate around every other nice lodge and hotel in the region.

We were greeted by name and arrived just in time for the delicious afternoon tea - a large selection of baked good, cheese, fresh fruit, teas and coffees. The rooms were clean and simple with a very comfy bed and some surprisingly comfy chairs (surprising since typical hotel furniture feels like sitting on plywood.) Hosts Chris and Shari-Lynn clearly know how to cater to their guests, though the service from all staff was excellent. All the meals were wonderful, plentiful and tasted homemade.

We had a nice view from our room, however the best view is from the large deck looking out over the meadow and the mountains, where we sat and read a book from the lodge's excellent library. We saw a family of moose by the road, though they didn't come to play in the mud hole near the lodge after dinner as other guests had seen the day before. We very much enjoyed getting to know other guests at dinner, which is served at shared tables.

Given the prices of accommodation in the area, Mt. Engadine Lodge seemed to offer a much more intimate and personalized experience that was well worth the money. I hope to make it back some day!

A stay at Engadine combines the best of all worlds: breathtaking views, outstanding food, easy access to phenomenal hiking trails, daily visits from curious moose, extremely comfortable accommodations and, most of all, a kind, fun-loving, and impressively knowledgeable welcoming staff. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed.
