Wanting to get down to Waterton for a few years now, I did so at the beginning of June with one night booking at Northland Lodge. Made a phone reservation & was able to be upgraded. Traveling from Edmonton, over 300 km, wanted more of a personal touch, B&B, a quieter older setting, far end of town and being early in the season, found the price less and fewer tourists! Traveled with my dog, Nanuq, not allowed in the room, slept in my car. But we sat on upper deck outside for abit and then a walk, up to Cameron falls and down to the lake. The B&B within walking distances of the lake and two trail heads, Lots of local wildlife and even a yearling bear cub in back parking lot. Remember if hiking with a dog must be on leash and have a can of bear spray with you.
Parking is at rear, and not evident upon first arrival, needing to go around end of the block. Lots of stairs in front.
Room #4 located upstairs in the back, not large but a comfortable double bed with fresh cotton sheets, a small fridge, private bath with shower, not tub, and my favorite blue color. Was rather coolish until figured out the small space heater and had to ask for the wifi pass code. Delightful breakfast of coffee, tea, juice, muffins and jam in an older elegant dining room. Appreciated the late check out as did a hike with my dog, coming back absolutely soaked, showered and changed for trip home.
Went through the buffalo paddock on way from park but only saw 2 bison.
and then north on Highway 22 Cowboy Trail…very much ranch country with mountains to the west. Cell of rainstorms gave moments of dark threatening skies. At one point saw a double rainbow and just missed a mother duck and 6 ducklings at side of road.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This historic lodge was built and designed in 1928 by Louis Hill of the Great Northern Railway, the famous builder of The Prince of Wales Hotel along with many of the lodges built in Glacier National Park. Our hillside hideaway is located in the quiet part of Waterton nestled against the mountain and is a 5 minute walk to anywhere in town. Open your window and listen to the sound of the waterfalls all night or hang out on the large deck and watch the deer come off the mountain. And while it was undoubtedly the largest home in the park in 1928, it is small by today's standards. What we lack in size we make up for in hospitality. In the mornings we offer coffee, tea, juice and hot muffins with our famous Saskatoon Berry jam. A sit and sip to visit with other guests and learn about all the adventures available to you in Waterton Lakes National Park. ... more less
