Stayed at the Lodge from Nov 14-17. Very clean room and quiet. We were here hunting and were up at 5:30 am and to bed early and could move about and never heard noise from the other rooms or out front from the vehicles. Front desk was always friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay. Would definitely stay here again... More

There are plenty of great things to say about Elkwater. There is ample room for lake activities in the summer motorized or even just beach bumming. They have a cute little mini golf. However, I recommend the hiking trails the most it's a different perspective of the prairies. Make sure you pack water with you cause it can get warm... More

First, please call the Lodge direct for proper information on what rooms are available and for what price they can offer you. When we made our booking, from the Lodge website, we were not aware that we had been directed to a third party booking site. Somehow, we were able to book into a cabin that was for seasonal use...

I didn't have high expections for this very out of the way resort. We came into Elkwater early for a wedding and had lots of time on our hands. The staff were very friendly and accommodating with an early check in. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. We had three adults and a baby and we felt like our... More

We arrived with no reservations and were warmly greeted. The fall special was a nice surprise as was receiving a $20 rebate for eating at the attached restaurant. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed both the attached deck and the patio off the main reception area. There are a wide range of room styles from rustic cabins... More

We highly recommend this quiet, clean and friendly accommodation. The attached restaurant serves tasty food at a reasonable price. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room on the second floor had a balcony with 2 chairs. There was also a large central balcony area on a lower level with chairs and tables with umbrellas. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Spent 4 nights in a rustic cabin. Area is gorgeous. Staff are very nice. Unfortunately, cabin was not terribly clean. Floors need a good scrubbing. 1 firepit for 3 cabins so if someone else is using it, too bad. On Wednesday we discovered BBQ was broken, told maintenance on Thursday. He said they would replace it that evening. When we... More

We had an interesting stay at the Elkwater Lake Lodge and Resort. We booked an Alpine Cabin using their online reservations two months prior to our stay. According to the website, and pictures found online, the Alpine cabins were newer and looked decent. When we got in they had no record of our reservation. Apparently they were having problems with...

Elkwater Cyprus Hills Alberta is wonderful, But! the Elkwater Lake Lodge and Resort is what brings us back the many times we have visited. The New Management has made improvements and upgrades.
