Our processes and services have been adapted and continue to evolve in order to ensure safety for our team and our guests.
We are 25 minutes and 32.3km from Banff, and 18 minutes and 27km from Lake Louise.
Located in the heart of Banff National Park we are conveniently located on the Bow Valley Parkway within a 30 minute drive of: Lake Minnewanka, Banff, Sunshine Ski Area, Stanley Glacier, Marble Canyon, Johnston Canyon, Lake Louise & Resort Ski Area, and the Ice Field Parkway.
The property hosts a gazebo with BBQ's, foosball and table tennis in the osprey lodge, a firepit with firewood, a guest laundry and a gym.
Every season in the mountains provides us with something unique and special. Summer season is from mid May to the end of September and the park is most accessible during this time. The entire month of October the larch trees come to life with fall colours. November marks the unofficial start of winter with early season ice skating, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and ski touring at higher elevations possible in good snow years. December hosts winter in full swing with the opening of Lake Louise, Sunshine, Norquay, Panorama and Kicking Horse ski resorts, ice climbing, ski touring, ice skating, and 20+km of snow shoeing and cross country skiing track set right from our front door. Spring can start as early as late march or as late as mid April. With the spring thaw comes renewed life as the forest greens, flowers bloom, and furry creatures great and small warm themselves in the spring sunshine and feed in the lush meadows.
