Cathedral Mountain Lodge
Snazzy Cabins in the Mountains
We stayed at the Cathedral Mountain Lodge for 5 nights. Overall, we really liked it there. The continental breakfast every morning was very nice and the staff was incredibly helpful. We asked them for all kinds of things from restaurant suggestions to directions to hiking trails.
There were a lot of bed and breakfasts in the town of Field, which is very nearby, but we were happy to be staying at a place a bit more private.
The only downside is that my husband and I have become a bit technology dependent, and the Cathedral Mountain Lodge has no phones, no television and no internet. Well, actually, they do have one very slow laptop in the main cabin that is free to guests and one phone, which you can also use.
The restaurant in the main cabin is excellent. They suggest you make a reservation. It's difficult to get in without one, only because the restaurant is rather small and they keep the vibe very mellow and personal.
Unique Quality: This hotel is a cluster of cabins in the middle of the mountains. Everywhere you turn, you face an absolutely stunning view of the mountains.
The Kicking Horse River is just a few steps from the main cabin, and they even have some chairs set out there to enjoy the views. It's a great place to stop and just enjoy the fresh air and scenery.
Directions: Coming from Calgary, drive about 2 hours. If you pass Field, BC, you've gone too far.
Mice,mice and more mice
We alerted the hotel to the fact that there were mice in our room and, it turns out also in the next cabin. Traps and a very strong chemical were put in the room but e were not offered another room. The second night there was another mouse on the floor and during the night it ran across my pillow. The hotel's compensation was less than 1/2 the cost of the room. The manager was sarcastic and officious both times we dealt with him. I would NOT recommend this hotel - the rooms are small and it's expensive. It is located beside the main highway and the trucks tend to use their air breaks when descending the long hill there. I would suggest that a better way to see the beautiful scenery, is to go to a B&B in Field - 5 minutes away. It will probably be less, the room may be larger and you will get breakfast. Then go to Cherchez la vache for lunch/dinner.
Unique Quality: Just down the road from one of Canada's longest falls.
