I stayed here for three nights in August and was a bit disappointed as it wasn't as great as I'd expected from the reviews. I think this was partly due to having stayed at Baker Creek Cabins prior to coming here and feeling much more in the wilderness and experiencing the Rockies. Alpine Village is very pretty, well-maintained and is across the road from a river but isn't in the heart of the forest in the same way as Baker Creek. Secondly, I'd booked the ground floor lodge suite as no cabins were available when I made my booking. In hindsight, this was a mistake, as the lodge suite is at the back of the property, next to the staff laundry room and overlooking staff garages - nothing like the picturesque cabins that are detached and surrounded by lawns and flowers. This isn't really Alpine Village's fault, as I knew I wasn't getting a cabin and was paying a bit less but I hadn't realised how much difference it would make, particularly after staying in our Baker Creek cabin. However, on the plus side, great location close to Jasper (which we liked) but set away from the town closer to nature, nice staff and very luxuriously equipped and furnished (certainly to a much higher standard than Baker Creek Cabins). The kitchen had everything we needed, the lounge area was very comfortable and we had a lovely though small italian-tiled bathroom/shower. I would recommed staying here but be aware that it doesn't have the feel of remoteness that Baker Creek has and think twice if you're not booking a cabin.
