After Banff we stayed two nights at the Moraine Lake Lodge and very extremely happy that we had pre-booked. Stayed in a lovely rustic cabin with a fireplace we lit both evenings to fall asleep as it was quite cold even though it was end of August - very romantic! Had read all the reviews before booking so we were aware that during the day hordes of tourists would be walking around the property and on the border of Moraine Lake. We were hoping that we could avoid them by going on hikes, unfortunately, there was a bear warning when we were there so, as we were a party of two, we stayed around the lake. We didn't mind the day-tourists so much as they left quite at the end of the afternoon and the scenery then takes over. The view of the lake at the top of the boulders is breathtaking and the water so blue, it reminded us of the Blausee near Kandersteg in Switzerland. Much smaller but also, as the name says, very blue in colour. The cabins are quite secluded and the higher up you are, the better the view and the further away from day-tourists. Breakfast (which was included) and Dinner are taken at the main building, which also has some rooms. We very much preferred the semi-detached cabins. Both breakfast and Dinner were very good and we were surprised about the quality of the food at such a secluded place. Very quiet at nights and due to the king size beds we slept like babies. Great experience and highly recommended.
