If you’ve ever wanted to get away to a cabin in the woods, this is the place for you.

Storm Mountain Lodge in the Rocky Mountains features 14 log cabins restored to maintain the heritage of the property, which dates to 1922. Each cabin is secluded and spaced far apart from its closest neighbour. To add to the historic feel, the cabins are not equipped with televisions or telephones. They feature a queen bed, wood-burning fireplace, a bathroom featuring an antique soaker tub and shower, a deck, and the opportunity to mingle with the famous nature and wildlife of Alberta’s mountains.

The lodge, resplendent in its rustic elegance, is located 25 minutes from Banff and Lake Louise, and until June offers a Cabin & Cuisine weekend deal that runs for $439 per couple.

Package includes:

  • A Friday or Saturday night stay in one of the resort’s log cabins
  • Dinner for two, including wine pairings
  • Breakfast

Storm Mountain Lodge is a rare treat in Canada, offering both a step back in time as well as a chance to enjoy first-rate cuisine suited for contemporary tastes. Sleeps at Storm Mountain Lodge contributor and photographer extraordinaire Terry O’Neill visited Storm Mountain Lodge in 2012 and came away with fabulous photographs, as well as some enticing observations about the historic property.

O’Neill writes: “Storm Mountain Lodge in Banff is a reminder of the rich traditions that still exist in the Rockies. The lodge was built 37 years after the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed in 1885. The railway saw it as a way to encourage tourists to visit the area.

Back then, the area was known as Rocky National Park and for another seven years after the lodge opened, mining, hunting and logging were still allowed.”
