The Mountaineer Lodge
The Mountaineer Lodge, open year round, is one of the best and most affordable places to stay in the Lake Louise area of Canada’s Rocky Mountains. Their well-appointed hotel accommodations are surrounded by some of the most famous peaks in the Canadian Rockies. The Mountaineer Lodge is nestled in a pine forest with tremendous views of Mount Temple and its summit glacier. It is also central to the best wildlife viewing spots in Banff National Park. The true meaning of “Big Nature” is immediately evident from the views of the awesome mountains surrounding the Mountaineer Lodge. In fact, views of mountain nature are a standard feature of their rooms and suites. The Lodge has the feel of mountain seclusion yet is easily accessed from the Trans Canada Highway and is a scenic 5 minute walk from a variety of services and shopping in the village of Lake Louise, Alberta.
Their Lake Louise lodge location is your “base camp” in the Rocky Mountains for a variety of activities year round including skiing at Lake Louise, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, canoeing, snow shoeing and of course, outstanding photography opportunities.
Mountaineer Lodge consists of two buildings with 78 spacious hotel guest rooms and suites ranging from standard rooms to two bedroom suites for families or couples travelling together. Most of their guest rooms have a beautiful view of Mount Temple, Mount Fairview or the famous Lake Louise ski resort hill, Mount Whitehorn. All rooms in the Main Lodge feature a microwave and mini-fridge. Rooms in the original building are exterior access. While they do not have an elevator, they do offer wheelchair accessible rooms. Please contact them directly to book your wheelchair accessible room.
