Pros: The staff were just lovely and very helpful. The on-site fine dining restaurant is definitely worth the money.
This was the best accomodation we have stayed in during out 3 week Canada trip despite having paid (much) more for other hotels. Highly recommended.

Luxury in the Canadian RockiesPosted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: They also had Adirondack chairs by the river, they built a fire there in the evening, and you can purchase a S'mores kit from the front desk.
We had a great time at the Cathedral Mountain Lodge. We knew that our stay could include complimentary canoeing at Moraine Lake, so as we were en route from Banff we called Cathedral, they called in a voucher at the lake, and we had a gorgeous paddle just as the sun broke through that afternoon. The accommodations were deluxe, the staff were very helpful, and we had a delicious gourmet dinner that evening...after visiting Takkakaw Fallls, about 15 minutes down the road. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and comfy place away from crowdsPosted Aug 13, 2014
This was actually one of the last places available in the Lake Louise area, so we almost lucked into staying here. We had a premiere cabin (28) which was a stand alone cabin (not like a duplex). The pictures on the website are accurate. The king size bed, cool breeze in the evening and furthest distance from the road and kitchen gave us a fantastic nights sleep. You can barely hear the train go by in the distance and we didn't hear any road or kitchen noise in our cabin. Another highlight was dinner at the restaurant. DELICIOUS! If you can, I would recommend getting a table outside on the porch. Or, as we did, move outside by the fire for dessert. It was gorgeous. Yes, there was a little mouse that ran around and a chipmunk, but the are everywhere in those mountains. It didn't bother us at all. The waitstaff was international and helpful. Also included in our room was free breakfast buffet in the morning (not amazing but still good), free wifi (that barely reached to our cabin but was nice to have for the few times we needed it) and 1 free hour of canoe rental at Lake Morraine. Canoeing Morraine was probably our favorite (fewer crowds and maybe even more beautiful than Lake Louise). Takakkaw Falls is right up the road and worth a visit too. It's all a little on the expensive side, but we thought it was worth it...way better than staying at a place like the crowed Fairmont!

Great location in the RockiesPosted Aug 12, 2014
Lovely log cabins; clean with interesting décor. A lot of hiking trails in the area. Breakfast was good; ate at the restaurant for dinner ... food was good. Fire place did not have a great draw so could not get a good fire going which is always nice to have in the evenings in the mountains. Overall, was as expected for cabins in the Rockies ... though perhaps a bit over priced.

Great Location Great Food!Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Love the rooms! The fire place is amazing
Cons: With only 34 Cabins a little personal touch would be warrented.
Great Location, Great Food, & the rooms were very nice. I proposed to my Girl Friend right before we arrived. I had told the lodge beforehand so I was expecting some recognition of the occasion or some personal touch ( a card or something). I guess they forgot.

The best lodging of our vacation!Posted Oct 19, 2013
Pros: The cabins are fabulous - so comfortable - clean and new.
Cons: The restaurant was mediocre at best, but very expensive for dinner. No bus boys, so, your plates won't get cleared or water refilled without asking
We loved, loved, loved our stay! Unfortunately, we only booked one night - wish we could have stayed longer! If you have any proconceived notions of staying in a log cabin in the Canadian Rockies, then this is the place to stay - it will meet all of your expectations!

Really good

Beautiful mountain getaway in cozy private cabinsPosted Oct 9, 2013
Cons: communication between Expedia and the hotel. They do not offer lunch service, & there's not much available in Field for groceries or restaurants.
Location: absolutely beautiful location, not a lot of restaurants or services in the town - but hiking and other mountain sports abound.
We stayed on the last weekend it was open for the season to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. There was a mix up with our booking (we'd only been booked for 1 night instead of 2), but they set to fixing it promptly. Initially, they said they'd need to move us to a larger cabin the second night - I really preferred to be able to just settle in & not move, but they offered us a complimentary meal or bottle of wine for the inconvenience. By the time we came back to our room from dinner in town, they'd rearranged things so we didn't have to move & a bottle of wine with a note was waiting for us. The setting, private cabins' decor, lodge, the breakfasts & everything about the resort was incredible. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. They made it a truly wonderful getaway where we felt very welcome (which I didn't expect as with a last weekend most were moving on afterwards...). The weather wasn't great, but the wood fireplace made it a cozy and romantic place to snuggle up in. Although no TV or internet, we were prepared & took a laptop with movies in case the weather kept us in. There are great hiking & walking trails nearby that we visited when the rain stopped briefly. We had an amazing meal at the restaurant (their chef was brilliant!), that they still even took off the bill at checkout due to the booking mix up. I can't say enough about how much we both enjoyed our stay and cant wait to go back (too bad it's closed for Winter Cross Country ski season!

Nice hotel, beautiful surroundings, expensivePosted Oct 7, 2013
We enjoyed out stay, staff were extremely helpful and our cabin was cute and warm. Quite expensive for what you got, cabins close together so had to keep curtains shut otherwise felt exposed. Breakfast lovely and had dinner in restaurant which was delicious.

Lovely Mountain LodgePosted Oct 3, 2013
Pros: Breakfast, location, comfort, fireplaces, friendly staff
Cons: A lunch service would be nice considering the secluded location
Location: Lake Louise, Emerald Lake, Takkakaw Falls, Wapta Falls, Kicking Horse, scenic drives, hundreds of hiking trails, wildlife viewing, 45 mins from Banff
Our cabin was quite nice, very cozy. Nestled in the Yoho National Park mountains, it is truly a beautiful place to get away. Only 20 minutes from Lake Louise area, and less than 10 minutes from several beautiful sites in Yoho, including Emerald Lake and Lake O'Hara. However, the lodge is quite far from any major town. There are no restaurants or stores nearby, so you are either forced to eat at the expensive lodge restaurant or to make sandwiches in your cabin. The included breakfast is delicious though! The staff is very helpful and friendly. Overall, this was a great getaway.
