“Another amazing long weekend”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away then this is the place for you! The food is simply amazing (try both the scallops and bison tenderloin). The cabins are rustic and comortable with a very helpful staff. Best of all for us, they are a pet-friendly property. Location is close to Sunshine Ski Resort, Lake Louise, and a quick drive into Banff for some shopping.

Room Tip: We were in Cabin #10 (pet friendly) and it is a perfect location.

This is a gem.
Absolutely great food. One delicious roast lamb, one delicate scallops and great desserts and good wines.
Giant fireplace in the lodge, piano, bar, books, comfortable furniture and tasteful gift shop.
Wonderful setting with rustic comfortable cabins.Trails on site Great staff.
Took advantage of "Locals" mid-week. Great value.
Been here before and loved the peace and quiet.
Cabin 14 is a little close to the road so you do get truck noise from the highway. Other locations are quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin up and behind the lodge...far from the road. It is an easy downhill walk to the main...

Treasure of the Banff Rockies. These tiny log cabins are charming and comfortable, each with a rustic stone fireplace. Great location about half way between Sunshine and Lake Louise downhill ski areas. The dining room is located in the closed-in porch of the original historic lodge with views across the valley to Storm Mountain. The menu is small, but the Canadian cuisine is one of the best in the Rockies. The huge fireplace is always roaring in the lodge and a perfect place to warm up with a toddy or Blueberry Tea after a day skiing or hiking on the many nearby trails. Several of the cabins are pet friendly.

Room Tip: As the cabins are quite small, try and get a cabin with just a queen, then there is room for a love...

Storm Mountain Lodge offers the perfect romantic getaway location - charming, perfect cabins surrounded by Banff's majesty, isolated yet close enough to both ski hills and the town-site. We stayed in a cabin-for-two for two nights. There is no cooking allowed and no modern-life conveniences (coffee maker, hairdryer, Internet, phone, etc) but who wants them? Cellphone reception was good. The cabin itself was very comfy and welcoming, roomy enough for two but with no extra room. The rustic cabins have been equipped with a wall-heater which throws sufficient heat and complements the fireplace. Wood and kindling is supplied and the fire was laid for us when we arrived! Very nice. The bathroom had its own small wall-heater, much needed, as it was cool. The old-fashioned claw-foot tub is comfy, and there is a shower rigging, but water pressure is low, understandably - out in the bush. It takes a while to fill the tub! The washbasin is located in the main room, perhaps a little inconvenient. Bed was comfy, lots of pillows, towels were fresh and plentiful, windows opened, there were ample lamps and lights. Front desk staff were friendly and efficient all through the reservation process. Staying at Storm Mountain provides wonderful ambiance and a total retreat. Just walking through its paths and looking up at the stars is magical. One of Banff's jewels!

We spent Christmas at this very special place this year. The service, meals and atmosphere were outstanding and made our holiday so special. Thanks to the owners for sharing their little piece of heaven with us during the holiday season. We will be back!!!!

We didn't stay there (yet) but we did stop for lunch, and as you step through the door into the dining hall building, that unmistakable aroma of a stately old log building that has been heated for decades with a wood stove is wonderful. The ambiance of the place is simply superb, and we found the quality of the food to be an appropriate match. James W. Alberta

We live in Canmore and sometimes love to just get away from it all. This is our 10th trip and every single time we get the same result. Absolute bliss and relaxation. It's rustic, it's not a fancy 5 star hotel. It's understated elegance, fine fining but above all the ambience is what u make it. If you want marble bathrooms and gold leaf wallpaper then don't go. If you want to step back in time, turn the cell phone off, relax and enjoy good food, good wine and get lost staring into a real fire then this place is for you. A true gem in the 21st century. Watch out for local specials as well....amazing value.
