It's was an unexpected surprise. I had looked at the place on the Internet and it was a roof over our heads but once at the location the view is stunning . The chalets are the old v shape but roomy. The one we were in had alarmed picture windows and it was breath taking to see those mountains. We had a loft so the children gathered there and another bedroom on the main floor.
Large entry area , fireplace and full kitchen with some stock. 2 bathroom one with shower other with jacuzzi tub. The place has a pool (cool) and hot tubs in and out. It is not near anything but the stars light up the night. This is a great family or group place those who like the quiet off the highway would also enjoy it. We had some problems with the stove but the staff were helpful at getting it resolved. 10-15 mins from Canmore and 25-30 from banff 1 hour or lake Louise. I would stay here again rural and peaceful it was. In the summer I think it would be great they large decks and you would pay for a view like this in banff or Canmore . Housekeeping may be a challenge but it beat my house
