We stayed over a week in a two bedroom chalet at Baker Creek Chalets in August.
Our cabin was delightful - clean, bright, beautifully decorated and well organized. Many features of the cabin are very modern: a fireplace insert that toasts up the cabin space nicely, a wonderful bathroom with a large shower and ample sink space, well constructed windows with screens to let in plenty of fresh air but not mosquitoes, and a kitchen area with ample cooking supplies. Towels and linens were fine. There was lots of space in the cabin - a small closet in the main room and each bedroom had a separate closet. There was a large table with bench seating in the main room, plus a couch and a rocker.
The grounds and our cabin's design cleverly provided privacy from neighboring cabins so we felt secluded and enjoyed the quiet of our quarters. It's obvious that this place is well loved and all of our interactions with the staff were great. There are several cabins on the grounds, plus a larger lodge and a separate restaurant building (Baker Creek Bistro).
After consulting TripAdvisor, we choose Baker Creek Chalets for two reasons. 1) convenient access to Lake Louise and YoHo Hiking areas without the chaos of the Lake Louise Village area. The location really was spectacular and felt very quiet and peaceful. The drive to Lake Louise Village was about 15 minutes and we frequently saw wildlife, including black bears and grizzly bears. 2) Convenience of the Baker Creek Bistro. We planned numerous long day hikes and wanted quick access to good meals afterwards. Unfortunately, the restaurant had just changed chef/staff and food was disappointing (restaurant was uneven in food, take out pizzas improved over time and ended up great) so we chose to do more picnics in the room than we had planned - there is a nice grocery store in Lake Louise Village!
We would definitely stay at Baker Creek Chalets again (but I would consult reviews of the Bistro before planning on meals there).
