We discovered Baker Creek Chalets whilst driving the Bow Valley Parkway on a trip in January so decided to spend a night there to check it out.
It is only about ten minutes from Lake Louise but feels completely different; you are also much more likely to see wildlife around here. We saw a giant Moose just crossing the road in front of us not more than half a mile away.
The chalets have kitchens so you can prepare your own meals but the onsite restaurant is excellent and well worth eating at, the rooms have efficient wood burners which soon heat up the room and are very welcome after a day out in the rain.
There are plenty of walks and scenic drives in the area and opportunities to see wildlife around every corner.
The only downside is the proximity to the railroad, lots of trains went rumbling by the night we stayed here, however after a while you probably get used to them.
