I decided to post this after reading some really negative reviews on Trip Advisor about this wonderful place to stay in Jasper. This is simply a reminiscence of my time at Pine Bungalows 5 years ago. I will write another review upon my next visit in a few months.
During our road trip through the Canadian Rocky Mountains we decided to treat ourselves and to stay at the "best" hotels in Banff and Lake Louise. The Fairmount hotels were pricey and gorgeously characteristic of a time gone by. However, I place myself in the category of simple folk who enjoy the simplicity of life instead of the pretentiousness that we are taught to embrace.
When we arrived at Jasper we could not find a room. We drove up to Pine Bungalows and were lucky to have found a cabin available. We opened the door to our cabin and my jaw dropped. We were greeted with a one room cabin where the kitchen, the bed and the fireplace were all in the same room. 5 years later this place still speaks to me. It was the most comfortable and enjoyable stay I have ever had in my life. I still remember being in bed and falling asleep to the glow of the fireplace. The Fairmount's, in my opinion, had nothing on this gem. Pine Bungalows was the highlight of our trip.
So much so, that I am now revisiting Pine Bungalows for almost 2 weeks instead of 1 night. I am super excited to simply enjoy the nature and the spirit of Jasper that Pine Bungalows captures. Sitting outside your cabin with a cup of tea and seeing the wildlife by the Athabasca River with the trees and mountain views in the background...nothing can compare to that.
I am eagerly counting the days until my return to Jasper and to Pine Bungalows. If you consider yourself someone who is more into nature, wildlife and star gazing than being 'plugged in' and gazing into the depths of your cell phone, Pine Bungalows is the place that should be first on your list.
I guarantee if you consider yourself someone in touch with the joys that simplicity brings you will never forget your stay at Pine Bungalows.
