This was our fourth trip to Canada within the last six years. Our first two visits we stayed in Banff National Park. It was absolutely breath-taking, but very congested. We stayed in five star properties, but something was missing. We wanted solitude, the opportunity to see wild animals and the ability to get back to nature.
On our third visit, we decided to rent a car at the airport and drive the five plus hours to Jasper National Park, by way of the Icefield Parkway. We found The Alpine Village website and knew that it was what we were looking for! The "cabin" was georgeous with a floor to ceiling fireplace, lots of windows, marble countertops in the bathroom with a heated tile floor. Not what we expected in a cabin. Our large deck overlooked the woods behind us.
The staff were top rate, the cabins are kept emaculate and the surrounding beauty is incredible. The wild life is all around you, even right on the property. For this reason we knew we would return again. We found our little piece of heaven.
We just returned from our fourth visit. We booked at the last minute and were fortunate enough to find out that somebody had cancelled. The cabin was much smaller, but just as nice as the other one we had during our last visit.
We sat on the banks of the river, drank some wine and looked out over the mountains during our last night there. Even though we missed our family at home, we wanted to stay forever.
We are well traveled, but I know that we will return again to this special place. I can't describe it..you have to experience it.
