We travel a lot and most often stay in nice hotels with trendy amenities. This place is different and was so welcome. We came to Banff and Lake Louise to get away from traffic, congestion, noise, and crowds. We wanted to concentrate on fresh air, quiet, nature, and great scenery - a place to get away to after a long day of challenging hiking. Baker Creek Chalets is the place. We rented a cabin on the outskirts of the resort facing the forest. It was awesome. Large one bedroom cabin, king size bed, huge fireplace, leather easy chairs, huge tub, kitchenette, small dining area, quiet and private. Each cabin has a short driveway so that you can pull your car or SUV right up to the cabin to load and unload.
The Resort is on the Bow Valley Parkway which is mostly an amazing two lane highway plowing through the forest at the foot of the mountains. There is wildlife everywhere. We dont drive around much at night here because of the huge populations of deer, elk and bears that may wander onto the roadway, but even in the daylight we ran across bears lumbering next to the road. The Resort sits on the river and there are Adirondack chairs and swings next to it where you can just relax and enjoy the sounds and scenery.
We loved this place and will be back.
