We've just arrived back home after a weekend in Jasper and our first stay in Pine Bungalows. I can say confidently that we will never stay anywhere else in Jasper and that this place has ruined any future hotel room stay for us!
The cabins are charming and rustic, but offered far more than I expected from the research I had done ahead of time.
Laminate floors, comfy bed, more lights than are necessary. Tiny kitchen, perfect for two. And all the basic kitchenware you would need. Even a broom behind the door to sweep up the pine needles that like to make their way inside. The fireplace is pretty and we were swept up in the scent of campfire and wood once we walked inside!
You want hot water? You got it here! It takes a minute to get there but once it's there, it's very hot and not in shortage. The décor is charming. We had a sweet picture of two bear cubs climbing a tree in our unit, and the couch offered a perfect place to sit and watch out the window as the elk munched on the grass in the morning.
The staff come in to take towels you would like replaced and empty garbages and recycle bins.
Literally 15 steps out the door you are on the bank of the Athabasca River and standing tall in the distance is Mt Edith Cavell.
You are literally a 3 minute drive from the town of Jasper but you would never know it once you are tucked away in your little cabin.
We were thrilled to have a picnic table and a little steel-box bbq to use, and we enjoyed watched the squirrels running around and collecting pinecones. The elk grazing by the office was just a bonus.
We didn't even miss not having a tv. We actually had to talk to each other! :) This may not be a luxury 4-star hotel, but it was a 5-star experience!
The owner, Michal is charming and friendly and all of his staff follow in his footsteps.
We loved it and didn't want to leave when it was time to go.
We will definitely be back...cannot wait!
Thank you Pine Bungalows! I just can't say it enough!
