Twenty years ago the Moraine Lake Lodge was built in the Banff National Park as an oasis for those looking for an escape from the busy day-to-day grind. A place that would take them back to nature.
Today the Lodge still fulfills that purpose and makes a perfect choice for a romantic getaway, a place to book a relaxing vacation, and on the other side of the coin, it’s a great choice for the adventurous ready to explore the great outdoors.
It’s a beautiful destination that offers fresh mountain air, and which was designed to be eco-friendly before it became a trend. The lodge is almost self-sufficient, generates its own power, and they reduce, re-use, and recycle whenever possible to protect the pristine landscape.
The Moraine Lake Lodge offers a number of lodging options from cabins to rooms. The décor is a perfect blend of rustic luxury, with hand-crafted log furniture and Canadian Rocky Mountain down duvets, Woolrich blankets and pillows and richly appointed bathrooms which include deep soaker tubs.
In keeping with their original oasis concept, rooms do not include phones or TVs, however complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.
Cabins: The Deluxe King and Twin Cabins feature one king or two twin beds, sunken seating areas wrapped around river rock wood burning fireplaces and have private balconies facing the lake and mountains.
Rooms: The Lodge offers a selection of rooms from Double Rooms located in the main Lodge, to rooms in the Wenkchemna Wing which feature their own wood burning fireplaces.
The most romantic is the Honeymoon Suite which is located on the upper floor of the Main Lodge. It features a Douglas Fir post and beam construction and is furnished with a king bed and jetted Jacuzzi tub. It, too, is equipped with a river rock wood-burning fireplace offering a perfect place to snuggle, and offers a stunning lake view from a private balcony.
For guests who want to explore the great outdoors, endless trails await. For those who have limited time, guided tours are available to explore this World Heritage Site, and the adventurous will find a wide range of ways to explore the surrounding area.
Get a bird’s eye view from a helicopter, or see it from the water by canoe or river raft. The front desk staff is on hand to help you book your unique adventure. Be sure to check out their website to see all they have to offer.
