Full accommodation information

Connect with nature at this dreamily peaceful, upscale mountain lodge in a secluded lakeside spot in Canada’s epic Rocky Mountains.

If you’re seeking authenticity with a hefty dose of cosy luxury, then Moraine Lake Lodge is just the ticket. Designed some 20 years ago to be a place of retreat, there are no phones or televisions in the rooms (there is WiFi), so you can truly switch off and soak up the mountain air. In a more secluded spot than many of its Banff and Lake Louise contemporaries, the lodge is set beside the pristine lake from which it gets its name, creating a true getaway experience in the mountains.

There are just 33 rooms and cabins at this intimate lodge, all offering a real sense of place, with hand-crafted log furniture, Woolrich blankets, (many with) fireplaces, and all with a place to sit outside and enjoy the spectacular landscape views.

Free for all guests is the use of canoes to easily head out onto Moraine Lake for a paddle across its pristine waters. And the lodge makes a great base for exploring the Canadian Rockies, with opportunities for wildlife viewing, horseback riding and hiking. Included with all stays is a superb, fresh breakfast each morning, and teas and coffees served with warm cookies in the library every afternoon.

Dinner, like everything here, is all about giving you a true taste of Canada. So on the menu at celebrated restaurant, the Walter Wilcox Dining Room, are dishes such as Alberta beef and British Columbia halibut, accompanied by an extensive wine list featuring dozens of home-grown Canadian wines.

With only 33 rooms and cabins, this intimate lodge feels cosy with a high level of friendly, personalised service from the attentive team. Pick from rooms or luxury cabins; both with mountain lodge-style décor, and plenty of features that give them a Rockies feel; think hand-crafted log furniture, Woolrich blankets and antique Canadian details. The rooms and cabins vary in size, but all have an outside space to sit and soak up the views; include breakfast each morning and afternoon treats every afternoon; and give you access to canoes to paddle across the lake, naturalist talks in the library and guided hikes. All rooms face the lake and mountains, with different views from each.

Walter Wilcox Dining Room

Walter Wilcox Dining Room

A highlight of your stay here will be the dining experience at Walter Wilcox, one of the top gourmet restaurants in the region that’s located in the mountain lodge. Here the seasonal menu aims to showcase the best of the region, supporting local organic farmers and suppliers with dishes hailing Canadian cuisine. Start with Canadian triple cream brie, with balsamic macerated berries and candied pecans; before tucking into Kuterra salmon served with black quinoa, heirloom tomato, golden beets and romesco sauce. Finish with a chocolate pecan torte with cinnamon stick dulce de leche, fresh field berries and chantilly cream, all served with a bottle of Canadian wine from the extensive list of vintages, like the Quail’s Gate Stewart Family Reserve chardonnay.

Outdoor Activities

There are a number of activities included with your stay, and plenty more besides. Complimentary naturalist talks take place in the library, as do educational hikes along popular local trails. Canoes, paddles, life jackets and basic instruction are free to hire from the lodge. Paid-for activities include exploring the Rocky Mountains on horseback, either with a gentle trail ride from Lake Louise or a gallop along the peaks of the Timberline Trails. Gentler experiences include a trip on the Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola to see the epic views and Wildlife Interpretive Centre at the top. Be sure to look out for grizzlies feeding on berries on the ski runs below as you ascend! White water rafting, fishing and glacier tours can all be arranged by Moraine Lake Lodge’s concierge.

Wildlife Viewing

Abundant wildlife call this region of Canada home, many of which you can spot from the lodge itself. The Banff National Park is home to a variety of fauna, and you could be lucky enough to have sightings of one of the five wolf packs; the ecologically important elk; threatened black bears; the area’s top predator, grizzly bears; relatives of the grey wolf, coyotes; solitary moose; and smaller creatures include marmots and chipmunks.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Canada’s national bird, the gray jay, a species resident in the park year round.
