Cabins in Canadien Rockies

We are heading up to the Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper area in June of 2001 and we are looking for scenic, quiet areas that offer cabins large enough for a family of five. We don't mind extra cost if that is an issue. Can anyone make any recommendations?

In Banff, I'd avoid the Tunnel Mountain Chalets, we thought they were overpriced, the beds were soft and the accommodations were just okay. The place across the street, Buffalo somethingorother, looked very nice, beautiful restaurant, I'd stay there next time.

Don't miss seeing the Banff Springs Hotel!

I have to disagree with Carolyn, my family had a wonderful Christmas at Tunnel Mountain, and found the Chelets great! We cooked the turkey and the whole bit. The best part about staying at Tunnel Mtn are the deer. They come right up to your deck, and expect to be fed. They must have had some luck doing this in the past!! So I'd say yes to the Tunnel Mountain Chalets, but make sure you get an outside cabin, by the woods, so that the deer can visit you. Great hiking along the Tunnel Mountain road as well!!

Bill, we just returned from Lake Louise/Banff/Jasper area yesterday and will be glad to give you some suggestions/recommendations of where to stay and what to see as soon as we recover. Weather was o.k. but we had much better luck last year, same time. We stayed at the Paradise Bungalows very close to Lake Louise Chalet and was very pleased. Our cabin had one double bed and a separate bedroom with two twin beds - you can also request an additional mattress/crib (or use the sofa) to make room for a family of five. Diane Moll.

Bill, now that I have had a few days to recover I would be glad to give you some ideas of cabins. In Lake Louise, as I mentioned before, we stayed at the Paridise Lodge & Bungalows ( Very enjoyable and a great location, nice laundry facilities, very clean. Near Jasper we stayed at Becker's Chalets. They are much newer and very nice. Those are the only two recommendations I can give you but you may want to check them out.

In Jasper it's Becker's Roaring River Chalets. Near Lake Louise the Castle Mountain Junction has some nice lodges and the Cathedral Mountain Chalets (20 minutes from Lake Louise) are very nice also. I have stayed at all 3 with groups of 6 people and all of them are excellent.

Check out my website for more info:

Be cautious of the wildlife in Banff/Jasper, especially the elk. They are everywhere and they can be very dangerous. Banff patrols have lots of problems with people thinking they can walk right up to these animals without consequence and it is not true.

Also try Baker Creek on the 1A highway between Castle Junction and Lake Louise. The cabins at Castle Junction are nice. Beckers in Jasper are nice and check out Sunwapta Bungalows, south of Jasper on the Icefields Parkway.
