Moraine Lake Lodge
In a truly spectacular valley in the Rocky Mountains, Moraine Lake Lodge offers an upscale escape overlooking the stunning blue waters of one of Canada’s most beautiful lakes.
Nestled in trees on the edge of the lake the rustic chic lodge really makes the most of its storybook setting. With one of the best gourmet restaurants in the National Park and beautiful rooms with jaw dropping views guests feel enveloped and safe in their own unique bolt hole. Hiking trails and canoeing are available from the front door and the resident naturalist is available to help enrich your stay. The hotel’s policy of no TVs or phones in rooms to provide an escape from busy daily life is refreshingly freeing. We think you will find this retreat in the Rockies extremely hard to forget.
