We stayed 3 nights at this lovely resort in mid-September. We enjoyed Deluxe one-bedroom Cabin #21 which is in a semi-circle of about 6 cabins at the front of the property and faces the Athabasca River and the mountains. There is a road between the cabins and the river, however we did not find this to be a negative, as it was very peaceful. Cabin 21 is the closest cabin to the road, but we think it has the best view. It was wonderful to sit on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine and enjoy the scenery.
It was Elk mating season and we were treated to numerous female elk & bull elk sightings from our cabin ... plus elk mating calls in the middle of the night!
The cabin has a well-equipped kitchen with stove, microwave and fridge. The resort is less than 10 minutes from Jasper, so it was great to be able to pick up supplies in town and enjoy a few relaxing meals in the cabin. We would recommend Fiddle River Seafood Company restaurant in Jasper as a great spot for dinner.
The free wi-fi worked great in the cabin – this is an important feature for us while we are travelling.
Don’t miss the Maligne Lake/Spirit Island boat cruise & the Jasper Tram ride. So many great hiking trails close by ... Maligne Canyon, Pyramid Mountain, Old Fort Point (with great Jasper town views). We ran out of time to enjoy all the hiking & sightseeing opportunities around Jasper.
During our travels we also stayed in Banff and Lake Louise which were both lovely, but definitely more touristy. We found Jasper to be much less commercial and felt a closer connection to nature in this area. The drive from Banff to Jasper along the Icefields Parkway is spectacular. Be sure to allow time to stop and enjoy the sights along the way.
The cabins and grounds are immaculate and you can definitely tell the pride of family ownership in this resort. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Jasper.
