This was our 5th stay in these Cabins. We spent Christmas week with Family. The loft bedroom upstairs had a king size bed and we put our kids on air mattresses on the floor of the bedroom as it is large. There was a small TV and bathroom upstairs. Downstairs is a bedroom with a queen size bed and we... More

I have never both liked and disliked a place so much at the same time! I don't even know what number rating to give it! I love: you have your own cabin in the woods, away from the commercialism of Banff and Canmore, yet you can drive to either in just a few minutes. The cabins are huge and can... More

This year was the 2nd time my wife and I stayed at a Banff Gate chalet, both times in December with a lot of cold weather. The chalets are very well appointed, rustic, warm & cozy, and comfortable. Gas fireplace with a roomy living room area, full kitchen, master bedroom upstairs, 2nd bedroom downstairs for guests, two bathrooms. With the... More

I've written a few reviews on Trip Advisor so please be sure to read some of my other reviews if you'd like some context as to how I describe this place. We had two chalets for a week, and ended up checking out a few days early. The location is good. I would imagine it has the appeal for folks... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the serenity of a fall evening in the mountains. From the large deck to the cozy living room with the fireplace, the friendly staff and amazing location tucked away off the highway. Even with the snow that fell, the road out was very easy to navigate. We loved it and will definitely be back.

A relaxing out in the country/mountains converted ski resort. Our all-wood interior two-bedroom chalet made us feel like we had more than enough space yet cozy quarters by the fireplace. We thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi bath and the two-story affect of the high ceilings. The panoramic views of the Canadian Rocky Mountain ranges from the downstairs living area/huge deck were...

Whether you love or hate this place will depend on your values. If you want 5-star luxury you should go somewhere else. If on the other hand you are looking for the tranquility of nature you'll love this place. Yes the place is rustic because it is older but some reviewers forget to mention that you have a spacious free-standing... More

We were headed to a Banff wedding and thought we'd spend the week. Spent the first night at Hidden Valley in Banff, which was nice, but super expensive and very cramped. Arrived here and despite older furnishings and ongoing renovations, it's a hidden gem! We had an enormous cabin all to ourselves. Parking right outside our door, a huge boot... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Banff Gate Mountain Resort is an outdoor playground for all ages where mountain activities and rustic amenities meet. It is nestled in the majestic pines of Pigeon Mountain at the foot of the Lougheed and Windtower Mountains. Our 46 fully appointed chalets are surrounded by Lake Louise and the adventures of the Banff National Park. Activities include water rafting, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, dog sledding, golf and more. For those preferring more peace and quiet, the picturesque grounds of the resort provide the perfect retreat. Children’s play areas are intertwined by hiking trails that sprawl throughout the resort connecting to the surrounding wilderness. Local wildlife often wanders unhindered throughout the area and across the property. An indoor heated pool, hot tubs and a family clubhouse provide a well-rounded travel destination for families and adventurers alike. ... more   less
