Located a little further along the highway from Lake Louise than we had anticipated we were apprehensive about what we would find in the woods ..... needless to say these little chalets were exactly what we had hoped for ! We had a 2 bedroom family cabin and it was as rustic as well as gorgeous ! Comfy beds , excellent appliances , utensils , crockery in the well maintained kitchen made cooking a breeze . Tho it was a tad chilly ( -3!) to sit outside at the fire pit I loved the idea . We used the spa - which was crystal clean & a real treat after a day skiing . I also used the little gym ( I emphasize the word "little" - just a room really) but it had a cross trainer , weights , swiss ball etc & I was able to do a couple of workouts without freezing my lungs with outside air . The bathrooms & showers had some lovely quality soaps, shampoos etc & their green/recycling policy was excellent . Now , not blowing any antipodean trumpets - but the Auzzie guy who checked us in was absolutely outstanding - he really went the extra mile for us ; it was Easter , I had told my children no easter eggs/bunny etc as we were travelling - but upon check in here they gave us complimentary "easter goodie bags" for the kids - how thoughtful & generous is that ??!! They were jolly big bags filled with an assortment of tasty treats and we really appreciated this kind & unexpected gesture . Needless to say our stay was wonderful , my only comment would be about the "pet" thing - the dog next door was quite noisy (barking) which we weren't used to and the walls aren't very thick ...... I would definitely stay here again though . Oh , and the train noise that I had read so much about ....I heard it a couple of times ( you are staying on the main trunk line) but found it quite quaint .....
