This place is charming. Cozy log cabins, wonderful food in a spectacular location. I wanted a break from the norm and this is what we got. The cabins are rustic but surprisingly warm and well insulated. The beds are very comfortable too which did surprise me. The first thing you want to do of course is light the fire which is all laid out for you everyday so just strike a match to the tinder and add the logs, simple. As advertised there is no TV or kettles you really just switch off and relax. Inside the main lodge is a restaurant and cozy sitting area with a main fire and a wood burning stove. A good selection of drinks from a small but completely adequate bar. I was warned in advance to book dinner ahead of our stay which proved the case as the food is so good people drive miles just to eat at the awarded "Best Restaurant in Banff Park" Breakfast is very good too, try the homemade granola parfait and buttermilk scones! It really is good value for money our stay cost $199 per night for a basic cabin, the food and wines (Canadian of course) is not overly priced at all. Fantastic staff. Highly recommended by us! We travelled to the Columbia Ice fields 2 hours drive towards Jasper review to follow.
