We were travelling through the Rockies on our Honeymoon and had planned to stay in a cabin at Lac le Jeune for two nights in order to relax before heading to Vancouver to complete our trip. As it turned out we could only cope with one night due to the terrible conditions at the Lac le Jeune Resort!! The cabin itself was dirty, damp and in a poor state of repair, there were numerous dead files on the window sills and floor, one of the window panes was broken, the front door was split through the middle, cupboard doors were missing, there was dust and cobwebs everywhere, the bathroom was dirty and the pillow cases were stained. An effort to hoover up some of the mess was made after we complained but the place was really in need of more than just a flick round with a duster. The decor, fixtures and fittings were all extremely dated which would have been perfectly fine by us if they were clean and the only heating in the cabin was provided by several electric fan heaters which struggled to do the job. The comments on the website relating to luxury showers and comfortable beds couldn't be further from the truth. There appear to be several comments relating to the quality of the food, I can only deduce that these people must have eaten somewhere else as the food on offer at the Lac le Jeune resort was far from delicious. The only choice for dinner was Chicken, Fish or Steak. My wife and I only wanted a main course and chose Salmon which was awful, it was over cooked and accompanied with a raw jacket potato a single slice of carrot and sprig of Broccoli. Dinner was served in the main dining room which was filled with the smoke being generated from all the food being char grilled in the kitchen. After spending a sleepless night in the cold, damp, dirty and frankly uncomfortable cabin we decided to skip breakfast after our previous experience with dinner and check out ASAP. The lake and surroundings are lovely and would make a great destination if only the accommodation was improved and brought up to an acceptable standard. The Lac le Jeune resort is extremely expensive and the costs certainly do not reflect the standard on offer. We did question whether this was the ‘wilderness’ and if we’d expected too much but after reviewing the website again, it certainly does make itself out to be a luxury resort. Not to mention the luxury price.
