My wife and I stayed here for one night as part of Jonview's fly drive package tour of Canada's western lodges and ranches.
It is set in a superb location with excellent views and we had a cabin adjacent to the river although unfortunately the weather was pretty grim for our stay.
The cabins are clean, basic but comfortable and the beds were the most comfortable we slept on for our whole tour. If you are looking for 4 or 5 star treatment then this is not the place for you. There is no tv, radio, clocks or phone in the cabin - pure bliss !!!
We found the staff helpful and friendly and the restaurant was very good for both the evening meal and breakfast and reasonably priced.
We had no problems with mice but as it is set in a National Park, you can’t expect all wildlife to avoid the cabins!!
- 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
