It is difficult to write a short review. This is the perfect blend of a quiet, natural setting with wonderful accommodation, and exceptional service. It is the Rocky Mountain retreat you fanaticize about but seldom find. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived -- everyone was genuinely friendly, interested, and helpful. The lodge has retained all of the original charm, and has been thoughtfully upgraded and decorated to provide subdued luxury. Our lovely room, with fireplace, actually had comfortable chairs and a well placed reading light. It was a room where you wanted to spend time. The balcony had a breathtaking view of the valley with snow covered mountains in the background. Watching the sun set over the mountains was magical. Our room and the common areas were immaculate. The cozy lounge with original fireplace is a wonderful place to curl up with a book and a coffee or glass of wine, to write postcards, peruse the wine list, or just dream and enjoy the view. A perfect place to spend a lazy November day. The adjacent “library” with a fascinating collection of old and new books, board games, and more comfortable chairs, was an unexpected treat and provided a great excuse to just be lazy.
The restaurant was superb and the service perfect. There were a number of local residents there both evenings – always a good sign. The menu should appeal to any taste and the food was delicious and perfectly presented. It is seldom that we can find such an appealing selection of appetizers (also suitable for a light meal for me). There was a creative choice of entrees for my husband, and an irresistible dessert menu. The extensive wine list was a wonderful read. With a little advice we decided to choose an unfamiliar wine variety from a region we knew, at a very reasonable price, and now have a new favorite.
This was a nostalgic visit, to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and it exceeded all of our expectations. We first met when I stayed here on a ski package to Jasper and decided it would be fun to return for the occasion. We will definitely continue to return in future. We might ski or hike, or just enjoy relaxing instead.
