“Excellent!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Our experience at Banff Log Cabin could not have been any better! It exceeded our expectations. The cabin is so adorable and comprised of all the necessary accommodations and more! Malcom and Sharon are the nicest couple and had us feeling right at home. Every morning they would provide us with delicious homemade muffins and pancakes. They would leave small treats for us and turn our beds down every evening. They gave us excellent recommendations on where to go and how to enjoy the best of Banff. The location of the cabin was perfect distance for walking to the town. I would highly recommend the cabin and look forward to visiting again in the future. Thank you Malcom and Sharon for a wonderful experience. Love, Laura and Lon

We had a wonderful time at Banff Log Cabin, it was perfect in every way. It was so cosy and every detail had been thought off. Our hosts were two of the loveliest people you would ever like to meet. The wonderful homemade waffles, pancakes and muffins were delicious, and we looked forward to them every morning. The location is perfect, a lovely walk along Bow River each evening was wonderful. I cant recommend staying here enough and you will really miss out if you go to Banff and stay somewhere else xx

My husband and I stayed at Banff Log Cabin B&B in September 2013. What a wonderful experience. Be prepared for a memorable experience with caring, considerate, and kind hosts. Malcolm and Sharon made our stay so comfortable. From the tips about what to see to future ideas for skiing, we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing stay.

The cabin was clean and cozy. Lots of attention to detail in the decorating. There were bottled waters in the fridge and chocolate on the pillow each night. The breakfast muffins were yummy. There is a limited kitchen area in the cabin which was nice for making tea and keeping leftovers. The hosts were very friendly. The cabin is close enough to town that we were able to walk around. Would highly recommend.

We stayed at the Banff Log Cabin for two nights at the end of road trip round Canada and it was one of our favourite places to stay.

The cabin is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean, with a real attention to detail. As the cabin is self contained it is nice a private, but you know the hosts are near by should you need anything.

The cabin is a pleasant 10 minute stroll from downtown Banff with all it's restaurants. We even saw an elk wandering round the streets on the way in.

Sharon and Malcolm (and Auntie Pat) were perfect hosts who were always extremely helpful in suggesting activities, sight seeing and restaurants. They were always keen to ensure our stay was perfect - which it was. We loved the surprises in the turn down and the homemade breakfasts were wonderful.

We would whole heartily recommend the Banff Log Cabin.

A lovely true log cabin in a nice neighborhood with nearby walking trails and easy access to downtown. The wonderful cabin is small but has everything you could want including robes and slippers. Malcolm and Sharon brought wonderful muffins each morning (don't miss the blueberry ones) along with fruit and coffee. There is a wonderful assortment of tea always available. We did miss visiting with other folks which is one thing we like about B&Bs but the hosst here will go out of their way to assure you are comfortable and well taken care of.

Room Tip: Only one room to choose but you will like it!

We had a lovely stay for two days in this B&B in late June this year (right after the awful flood).

Location: The log is in the middle of a residential neighborhood just 10 minutes from Banff downtown. The walk is scenic, overlooking the mountains and going past the Central Park, the bridge over the Bow River. Wildlife can be easily spotted on your way too. In the other direction, the Bow Falls is just 5 minutes away.

The log: Though it's a B&B, we enjoyed a lot of privacy since it's a log outside the hosts' building. The log is rustic but elegantly rustic (if it makes sense). The area inside is not big, but it has everything we need. As shown in the pictures on the site, there is a kitchenette (no stove), a small dining table / work desk, a fire place, a cozy queen sized bed, a side cabin with an iPhone dock, night candles, plenty of travel books etc. The log has a deck that overlooks a lovely children's play area. A perfect spot for reading and breakfast if the weather is good.

The hosts: Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to meet Malcolm, but we had so much to thank Sharon for! Sharon was very friendly and caring but also gave us enough privacy. Sharon went out of her way to help us through many troubles due to the road closure after the flood. We just couldn't believe it when Sharon offered to bring us freshly baked muffins early at 4:30 am when we had to leave for the airporter extra early because of the road closure. And when the airporter accidentally went off only with our luggage, leaving us behind (!), Sharon, in that very early morning hour, helped us with all the negotiation necessary with the airporter's company with all the efficiency and habitability we would expect from staff in a 5-star hotel.

The pampering service / food: I don't have to mention again how great Sharon's muffins and breakfast are. Just imagine lovely summer fruits and berries, fresh juice, muffins (or waffles) of your choice, coffee and tea, served in lovely glassware and a beautiful silver tray, brought over to your doorstep at a time of your choice. Imagine local chocolate treats on your pillow and bottles of icy sparkling water (not in the fridge, but placed in a charming silver ice bucket) for you to enjoy, when you return from long hikes. That's exactly what we got during our short stay and we felt truly pampered!
