Storm Mountain Lodge & Cabins

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We have visited this location on previous visits to the Banff area, but just for an evening meal. This visit we stayed 3 nights to enjoy the ambience of the area. The owners and staff go out of their way to make your stay special. We were in Log Cabin #9, and it was very clean, up to date comfortable and made cozy in the evening with a fireplace. The meals served in the main lodge were outstanding, served beautifully and exceptional in taste. The setting is quiet and lovely among the pine trees, set back from the road and across the highway from Storm Mountain. What a fantastic respite after a days activities, whatever they may be, in the Banff/Lake Louise area.

Storm Mountain Lodge is equidistant from Banff and Lake Louise. The log cabins are set back from the road in a beautiful setting. Yes, they're close to the road but the road noise is really not a factor (if you're really noise sensitive, try a weekend stay when there's less truck traffic). Note that TripAdvisor's map locates the Lodge in Banff but it is actually 25 km from town. It's a cozy, rustic, spacious enough room with a wood-burning fireplace. The lodge is comfortable, accessible and has an excellent (but not inexpensive) restaurant.

We stayed here in August and it was the perfect place to end our week in Jasper and Banff. The cabin was small, but most cabins are. There was a beautiful fireplace right in the center of the room and enough firewood to enjoy many fires. The bed was a little lacking in comfort and the heater clicked and popped all night, but those were minor details we overlooked due to the rustic nature of the cabin. If you have a choice, request a cabin in the back, as our cabin was right on the highway and you could hear the trucks passing all night long. The restaurant was really charming, but the prices were a bit much considering the rustic nature of the rooms. We opted to go the store and picnic our way through our stay, but you can also drive to Banff for a nice dinner at reasonable prices. They do not have a coffee maker in the room or hairdryers, so plan to bring your own. Overall, a charming stay.

Looking for a quiet, cozy, charming stay in the woods on the mountain? Look no further! The log cabin was just as delightful inside as the outside looked - right out of a fairytale storybook! Great getaway from tv, internet, electronics, etc. Just bring a good book or a board game and RELAX! The bed was extremely comfy, the cabin was immaculate. We enjoyed the gourmet dinner and relaxing in front of the fireplace after dinner in the lodge. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Cabin 14...best stay in the wilderness. Comfortable beds, great fireplace and solitude. What else could you ask for, eh?
I had the trout for dinner and it was delicious. I have been there several times over the last decade and their level of service has always been great.

Stayed one night in one of the older log cabins, which had a fireplace. Very quiet, nestled among the trees. Bed was very comfortable and the bath products of high quality. Loved the claw footed tub. Ate in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. While the dinner was very good, the breakfast was very, very tasty and beautifully presented. Breakfast at Storm Mountain was my favorite meal during our week trip in Alberta, CA. Only drawback to our cabin was that it smelled slightly of soot, probably from the beautiful, old stone fireplace. While you could light a fire, we did not because it was not cold enough.

We have been to Storm Mountain Lodge many times, and never get tired of it. The view is so gorgeous, the hummingbirds drinking out the nectar holders, the cabins, and the staff who seem to be instant friends. The dining room is lovely - and they do a very good packed lunch too!
