“An absolute gem in Banff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were lucky enough to stay at the log cabin for a couple of nights at the start of our trip through the Rockies. From the moment we arrived Sharon and Malcolm were the perfect hosts providing us with useful, local information as well as lots of lovely little touches which made our stay even more enjoyable. The cabin is in a great location within easy walking distance of Banff town and is extremely comfortable. The hosts have thought of everything even providing cosy slippers which were a welcome find following our return from a very wet horse riding trip!
The muffins at breakfast are truly delicious and my husband didn't come across any better coffee during our entire trip, a high accolade indeed given how much of a snob he is about his coffee!
The hosts really have hospitality down to a fine art and it's clear that they treat every guest as an individual. This is not only evident by the other reviews posted but by the added extras we received as well as a lovely little card at the end of our stay.
I have only one issue with this place and it's the fact that we couldn't stay longer. Sharon and Malcolm set the bar very high and although we stayed in some very nice accommodation during our trip, none of them came close to providing the really personal service that they did.
We long to return again in the future. Thank you for making our trip such a special one.

This log cabin is absolutely perfect. Everything you could need and very quiet (which is important to us) and comfortable. We had the pancakes, muffins and waffles over the 3 days we were there and all equally delicious. Loved the chocolates on the pillows and other little touches. Just a short stroll to Banff centre and also the Bow Falls. Sharon and Malcolm were extremely helpful and kind during our stay, thank you Sharon. We will be back!

I wish there were six stars that I could award to this B&B. This is the most gorgeous log cabin in the beautiful town of Banff. It is cosy and so comfortable with everything you could wish for. Sharon and Malcolm are wonderful hosts. Breakfast is home made and we had it served on the patio each day. You get a turn down service in the evening with a chocolate moose on your pillow. It is close to the Bow Falls and it was wonderful to be able to walk down to the river and spot elk, deer and other animals each morning and evening. I cannot recommend this highly enough and hope to be able to return there again one day very soon.

We stayed at the Cabin for 2 nights for the Rocky Mountain Food and Wine Festival. The service provided by the Carmichael's was second to none. We received royal treatment for the entire time we stayed at the cabin. All their recommendations for where to eat, and check out was bang on. The homemade Muffins, pressed coffee, and delicately cut fruit salad was a perfect way to start the day. I highly recommend any couple to enjoy this B&B. Don't forget to ask about the amazing 'Smore's that were laid out for us upon turn down.
We had also utilized "Elope in Banff" (which is Sharon's wedding planning service). Again the Carmichael's went out of their to make sure our special day was absolutely perfect.
I would definitely recommend the Banff Log Cabin to anyone coming to stay in Banff!

We were fortunate to stay at the Log Cabin for 2 nights on our recent trip through the Rockies. On our arrival we were warmly welcomed by Malcolm with champagne and chocolates. :) This was just the first of so many thoughtful touches (just loved the moose chocolates on the pillow each night). The cabin is warm and cosy with so many personal touches - it is just charming! Sharon's home-made breakfast was so tasty...THE most delicious fresh warm muffins and fruit the first morning and waffles the next. It was so lovely to sit on the deck and breathe in the fresh mountain air. The warmth and hospitality shown by Sharon and Michael was heartfelt. We were treated like old friends, and their advise on what to do and see was great. I would definitely recommend the cabin for a cosy stay with wonderful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return again.

Staying for three nights in this gorgeous cabin was the perfect end to our trip around Western Canada. It's the only cabin in the garden of Sharon and Malcolm's home, and is completely self-contained, whilst the small-scale nature of the hotel makes it feel totally personal and like you're part of the family. The cabin is just a few minutes walk from the centre of the town (a nice romantic stroll over a well-lit footbridge), and waking up to Sharon's homemade muffins and watching deer graze the lawn was a wonderfully serene start to each day. The hosts could not have been more helpful or willing to give advice about local restaurants and activities, and every detail had been thought off. The decor is great, the bed comfortable, and the cabin includes a very well stocked kitchen area. We arrived a little tired from our trip so far, and left feeling like we'd made new friends. Make sure to treat yourself to dinner at Bison, a local restaurant that provided our favourite meal of the trip. And make sure to order the lemon and poppy seed muffins from Sharon's breakfast menu! You'll love every second of your stay.

we came to Banff to elope. Malcolm and Sharon made our stay at Banff log cabin B&B amazing. They went out of their way to make our stay there amazing and wonderful. They went to great detail on our wedding night to put rose pedals everywhere and candles. Thanks again for the champagne. The cabin was amazing rustic with details. The elk chandler gave the cabin the perfect look. Sharon the muffins were amazing and your smile every morning, made our stay there perfect. Malcolm did a amazing job on our wedding photos.I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a relaxing and quiet stay. we had visitors every night (deer). Its a wonderful place to come.

Thanks again Allan & Kathy
