One of my all-time favourite lodges is Mount Engadine Lodge in Kananaskis Country. I have stayed for a weekend on three occasions now, twice in winter and once in the fall. Visit the lodge in the summer if you’re into hiking and nature. Some truly exceptional hiking trails are practically on the lodge doorstep; cue Tent Ridge, Chester Lake and Burstall Pass for starters.
If you go in the fall – like I did with my mother-in-law, you are practically guaranteed a moose sighting. And some of the trails, like Buller Pass are particularly beautiful when the larches are at their peak around mid-September. Visit in winter if you love snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and relaxing by a cozy fire.
Of note is the fact the Mt Engadine Lodge now has dog-friendly glamping tents. You can read about my December glamping experience here. These tents are very luxurious inside.
Mount Engadine Lodge is approximately a two hour drive from Calgary. It offers cabins, lodge rooms and the glamping tents I mentioned as well as a yurt. At the front entrance there’s a welcoming big fireplace. There’s also a large common area where you can hang out with a book and a glass of wine. Dining is family style. Two meals are served daily – along with a packed lunch and a fantastic charcuterie board late in the afternoon.
