Located on the banks of the Kicking Horse River in Yoho National Park, Cathedral Mountain Lodge is a true wilderness retreat situated only a 25-minute drive from Lake Louise. Hidden in alpine forests and surrounded by Canada’s Rocky Mountains, you will feel at one with nature here; plenty of wildlife such as elk, moose, wolves and Black bears may be seen passing through the grounds or on the river’s edge.
The main lodge was built with reclaimed Douglas fir posts and beams. The Great Room and Riverside Dining Room have an indoor/outdoor river rock fireplace, high vaulted ceilings and scenic views through the 18-foot high windows. The 31 rooms, featuring custom-made beds, are housed in 23 luxury log cabins designed to create a warm, cosy feel; there are no televisions or telephones to distract you from the great outdoors.
Start your day with a complimentary breakfast in the charming riverside dining room before exploring the beauty of this pristine wilderness. Cathedral Mountain Lodge offers complimentary canoeing on Lake Moraine and has partnered with local Outdoor Adventure Specialists who can arrange activities such as rafting on Kicking Horse River, horseback riding through the mountains and hiking in Yoho and Banff National Parks.
Afternoon tea and cookies are served at the lodge, while evenings are spent relaxing on your porch. Enjoy exceptional dining at the lodge’s dining room, or drive in to the tiny nearby town of Field for dinner at Truffle Pigs Bistro. Pick up a s’mores kit at the lodge and roast marshmallows over the open log fire-pit on the shores of the Kicking Horse River, while gazing up to the star-studded sky.
The spacious King Deluxe Cabins and Twin Deluxe Cabins are housed in cosy log cabins set in the pine forests and house two adjoining deluxe cabins, with vaulted ceilings, gas fireplaces and an outdoor porch and deck.
These stand-alone log cabins offer a spacious bedroom and living space, private porch and deck and a wood-burning stone fireplace.
Accommodation at Cathedral Mountain Lodge does not have televisions or telephones.
Spacious stand-alone log cabins set in amongst the pine forests on the banks of the Kicking Horse River. These are ideal for families or friends travelling together due to their vaulted ceiling and loft featuring an additional bed.
The ground floor offers an open-plan bedroom and comfortable lounge with wood-burning fireplace. The loft is reached by a pine ladder so there is a minimum age restriction for kids sleeping in this area.
