Laura Rutter has three fantastic loft-like cabins, on the edge of Jasper National Park and the Willmore Wilderness. Cooks like an angel, will accompany you on walks, is a superb raconteur and will lend snow shoes and cross country skis in the winter, and a canoe in the summer. It is great value, and if you want to, you can share Laura's knowledge of local flora and fauna, tracks, or be left alone to read, sun yourself on your deck, or wrap yourself in an Afghan by your wood burning stove. Th nearest town is Hinton, which doesn't look too promising, but as you head up to the Escape, near Rock Lake, you will be in for a wonderful surprise. (The ViaRail train that goes right across Canada stops in Hinton, and Laura can arrange pickups there).
