We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting jasper. It was very quaint, quiet, friendly and homely. We really enjoyed our stay here and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery and surrounded by the wildlife. It was a very easy car journey to jasper, approx 3 minutes. It is quietly tucked out of the way just off highway 16. The only possible downside was that we had no tv, air con and a small shower, however, this may not be a downside for everyone and we did not personally have any issues with this. The second double bed is quite cosy but they are very comfortable. We have overall enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it!!

We stayed in a duplex cabin recently for 2 nights. It was quiet; we heard nothing from the folks on the other side, other than the water running once. The cabin was well equipped with everything we needed, including a refrigerator. They came to check if we had enough fire wood for the fireplace. We really liked the Adirondack chairs and walkway along the river. We had a great dinner at the restaurant, and adequate breakfast both mornings. It's not fancy..although the bathroom was updated....but it's nice, peaceful, and clean.

Room Tip: There are 2 or 3 cabins that face the river, and are furthest from the road/restaurant. If I were go...

We recently attended a wedding here. It was a beautiful setting beside a river. The staff had set things up really pretty. We stayed in a cabin rather than the hotel rooms in the lodge. They are on the small side but very quaint. We did have enough room though for 4 adults. The breakfast buffet on the Sunday morning was very good, a little pricey at $16 but tasty. My only complaint about that is the Lodge residents received a free breakfast voucher but the cabin residents(us) had to pay. Not sure why and I forgot to ask.
I can say that I wish we had booked an extra night as there seems to be some beautiful areas to explore.

Room Tip: Cabins have more space than the Lodge but are more pricey.

I recently stayed in the "Lodge Rooms" at the Tekarra Lodge. The positives are the location - absolutely stunning views and places to walk/sit along the river to observe the wildlife and scenery.

The negative - The rooms are small and located above the main lodge/restaurant. The room we stayed in (A) had two twin beds. One of them was broken and very difficult to sleep in. I felt as if I were sleeping uphill or downhill all night. The water pressure in the shower was minimal at best. While I don't expect a lot in a room, the price was quite high for this type of room. I think these rooms could be updated for the price ($179) a night.

Room Tip: I would recommend a cabin although I did not actually see the inside of one.

We've stayed here twice, the first time on the recommendation of friends and the second time because we liked it so much. The cabins are rustic and quaint so suited our getaways from the city well. We loved the river walk and the views are amazing. It's a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the scenery Jasper is famous for. There's wifi so no need to be bored if it rains and you've forgotten your book. We had our Thanksgiving dinner in the restaurant last year and the food was scrumptious. It was romantic to have a bottle of wine in front of the fire as well. We travel with our dog and this is the best place to stay in Jasper if you have your pet with you. We came back for an overnighter this summer and plan to stay a week next summer.

Quiet cabins near Jasper along the river. Nice place to relax, a little pricey but most things in the area are. Cabins are clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful. We left a coat in the cabin and they shipped it to us within the week. Cabins are charming and well kept but are very close together.

Front room windows do not open, small windows in bedroom don't let in any air. Very rustic looking and not in a good way. Bathroom was nice and updated but a dirty facecloth had been left in the tub. I know we were here to appreciate nature but it was pouring outside and nothing to do. No tv no pub or gathering place the food in the restaurant was good but overpriced, especially the drinks, not a place you could linger and socialize on a rainy night. Would not stay here again

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Tekarra Lodge enjoys an enviable location within Jasper National Park, the largest of the national mountain parks in Canada, 4200 square miles in area. Jasper became a National Park in 1907 and the town site's first buildings were constructed in 1911, then Jasper was known as the town of Fitzhugh. Tekarra Lodge is located across the river from the base of its namesake, Tekarra Mountain. Tekarra Mountain, towering 2635 meters above us is named for the Iroquois guide and hunter who accompanied Sir James Hector on his expedition through the Rocky Mountains during the mid-1850s. The skill and devotion of the guide Tekarra saved the lives of the members of that expedition. He sustained and fed them during the grim and bitter winter with caribou that he hunted on the mountain. It was because of this devotion that Sir James named the mountain Tekarra. The lodge grounds form the banks of the confluence of the Athabasca and Miette rivers. This land is maintained in its natural state, and offers a wonderful study for nature lovers. Tekarra's marked nature walk, and the Indian totem poles give pleasure to all ages. The area and history in and around the property is a fascinating one. One of the first settlements of Jasper called Henry House may have been located adjacent to the lodge on the south side of the river. Even today, there is still indication of an old homestead and some outbuildings. Tekarra Lodge was built circa 1947 and initially consisted of only a few cabins, some of which are standing today. ... more   less
