“Lovely quiet place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We stayed in a chalet there in the summer and really enjoyed it. I would not call it luxurious but it was very clean and functional. A couple of cooking items were missing from the kitchen and as soon as I pointed this out to the staff, the matter was sorted.
We made the most of the hot tub and were pleased that the chalet was cleaned every day, we had not realised that this would be the case but it meant that we had more time to relax.
The location was beautiful with peaceful Patricia lake and Pyramid Mountain behind it. There are some armchairs by the lake to sit down and enjoy the view but don't forget your insect repellent if you go there first thing in the morning!

Flooding kept us from our intended destination of Banff, but this unexpected stop could not have been better. Rented bikes as well as canoes during our short stay and realized we could (should) have stayed a week in this beautiful area.Great alternative to the standard chain hotels and motels and it was priced moderately.Hope we can make it back for another stay soon.

We stayed in one of the Spruce suites which are part of the newer cabins in early September. They're spacious one-bedroom suites, fully appointed, each with its own BBQ grill and patio and with views of the lake. There's a feeling of remoteness but it's just a few miles outside of town. Patricia Lake, with its view of Pyramid Mtn is stunning. If you want to eat in, the kitchen is well stocked but there are plenty of good restaurants in Jasper (the Bear Claw...or Paw has amazing baked goods).

The Lake Patricia Bungalows are a nice relief from the typical chain hotel, but they are showing their age. This long-time family-owned resort made up of small single units of varying age (new to 45 or 50 years old) is tucked away about 3 miles outside of downtown Jasper on the shores of beautiful Lake Patricia, and about one mile away, Pyramid Lake And iit's Lodge and restaurant that has a nice breakfast overlooking the lake at sunrise. The bungalows, grounds, and facilities are clean; the hot tub is excellent; D.J., the front desk person was an outstanding source of information about the area and restaurants, etc.; the beds and bedding were fine, but the furniture again is old as is the paint, especially on the outside of the buildings -- overall "Good".

Room Tip: Book at least 6 months early, and ask for one of the new units if available.

Dear Jhoffman

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. We are always delighted when guests use Trip Advisor to let us know how we are doing and if we are on the right track to make guests stay enjoyable and memorable.

As you have mentioned we are small family owned business. As such, we are constantly striving to achieve the best in both service and lodging. Understandably, as the summer seasons are busy with no opportunities to close down units and the winters here in Jasper are cold, we have a very small window of opportunity to fix up the interiors of our cabins. However, during your stay you might have noticed that the exteriors of many of our units were in the process of being painted or completely restored. In off season from November till April, our property is in constant construction. Myself and the owners also revise comments from guests underlining any upgrades or changes that need to be done. We would be more then grateful to have some of your comments in regards to your particular units. Please contact me directly at juliepatlake@gmail.com for any feedback.

Thank you so much for mentioning DJ. She will be thrilled to see that she made it on Trip Advisor! She is an outstanding employee and it will be gratifying for her to see a comment that she made a memorable impression on your stay.

We stayed in a Cavell Suite, which was surprisingly spacious and fitted out to a modern specification, with good air conditioning.

Although the prices are pretty high, for us this was justified by the location. The lake was unspoilt and just on our doorstep. It is 'off the beaten track' enough to be quiet, but only a 5-10 minute drive into Jasper. We hired a kayak and had a paddle about on the lake, and watched the sun go down whilst sat on the jetty. Which was only a short stroll from our cabin. Beautiful. We even had a visit from a female elk grazing near the cabins, who was obviously used to the comings and goings, and gave us a nice photo opportunity!

The staff were pleasant, and they called by around 9pm to check we had everything we needed, which was a nice thought.

We only wish we could have enjoyed it a bit longer, although my purse is glad we had to move on!

Dear JR22000

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in the Cavell suites. The Cavell suites offer everything and more. They are a perfect unit if you are looking to eat out or make a simple meal during your stay with their modern flare. We are happy that the Cavell suites suited your needs! Furthermore, it is wonderful that you were able to utilize our boats on the lake and had a visit from the elks. The lake is such a peaceful and spectacular place.

The night service is an added touch of comfort for our guests. As we do not have telephones in the units, this service is available nightly to ensure that if anything was missed or added amenities are required, the staff are always available to assist. Truth be told, this is their favourite job as it allows them to chit chat with the guests!

I would be delighted to hear from you in regards to our rates. If there is a rate that you feel would be more appropriate for your unit please let me know.

To contact me personally please email juliepatlake@gmail.com

We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in the Canadian Rockies

Stayed here four nights in August 2013 with my wife. We're 65 year-olds. Beautiful cabin with an incredible view of Patricia Lake. The cabin had a main living area with stone gas fireplace as its heating system, comfortable over stuffed chairs, coffee table, sitting table/chairs, and a kitchen with all the basic amenities. The bathroom was well done and very functional. The separate bedroom had a queen bed which was quite comfortable. The cabin was in great shape and had obviously been updated in the not too distant past (as, it appeared, all or many others had also been done). At the office area is a hot tub, laundry, and computer room. The focus on service was on the level of a major hotel, complete with a personalized late evening stop by an employee to ask if everything was OK and whether we needed anything. It was only a few minutes outside of Jasper on a drive where we twice stopped on separate occasions to take pictures of elk grazing by the road. If I go back to Jasper, I'll check here for availability first.

Room Tip: Try for a lake-view, but don't turn away if none are available. They're all great.

Great location- just far enough from town. We stayed in a log cabin the first night #21-very nice-remodled, lake front. Then we stayed in the Groves D3/upper level for three nights, new condo like, very nice, plenty of room. It was nice having the kitchen and a grill/patio. (there are grocery stores in town) It was great being by the lake, we hung out on the dock area in the early evening meeting people and talked about our adventures in the park that day. Star gazing was amazing. You could see the stars reflecting in the water.
The smoke detector in the Groves unit went off twice from unit down stairs, which are hard wired to our unit. The owner was very accommodating and seems committed to working on the problem.
We would stay there again!

Room Tip: All the units are close to the lake. Take advantage of the late afternoon to dark sitting on the dec...
