We stayed for a week, after being here several years ago and feeling eager to come back. Both stays have been in the small cabins along the river. We love them! They're historic, well maintained, close to town, but feel like you're out in the wilderness. The cabins are close together but well positioned so that you still have privacy.
We both just love the feeling of being here. You open the door, and the river is right there, with benches dotted along the banks so you can sit & watch the sunset or the herd of elk across the way. The cabin is small but completely sufficient with a bed, fireplace, kitchenette, and washroom with tub & shower combo. Outside each of the cabins is a picnic table and a couple of plastic chairs. Staff come by daily to see if you need new towels or additional coffee/tea.
I particularly love spending a day here on the banks of the river, when everybody else has gone off adventuring somewhere. So utterly peaceful and quiet. We didn't notice any sounds from the highway at all -- just the rushing of the river when we sat near it. And the elk! There was a herd in residence... on various occasions we saw them hanging around just outside the cabins, wandering the road out to the highway, wading in the river, or sunbathing on its banks.
I think it's the best of both worlds -- you're only a few minutes drive from town but sleeping in a little nature sanctuary. We also really appreciate the attentiveness to environmental issues. Will definitely be back every time we return to Jasper!
