Storm Mountain Lodge
Lonely Planet review
Reopened in 2003 following a massive renovation, this place is a in a wild location at Vermillion Pass, 25 minutes from Banff township. It features 14 historic log cabins that are rustic and simple - you won't find any TVs or phones here. The point is to get away from it all.
Up against Storm Mountain, the aptly named Storm Mountain Lodge has an awesome location deep in the heart of Banff National Park. This is the kind of place you go to get lost in the wilderness - hiking trails surround you as do opportunities to see some of Banff's mega-fauna like grizzlies and moose (but keep your distance please). The cabins were originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1922 and still retain the original log walls and other accents. During restoration a lot of effort was put into preserving their history - inside you'll find simple log beds and wood-burning stoves. Covered decks are perfect for reading or watching the sunset. Without TV, and in a remote location, there's not a lot to do here after dinner (though the lodge does have a fabulous restaurant), so make sure to bring a good book or a DVD to watch on your laptop. Great off season half-board packages.
