From the scenery you are surrounded by to the breakfast in bed each day, beer in room, chocolate covered strawberries and a huge tub to soak in together. It was a great weekend to spend with my husband. Highly recommended. Staff even stayed late on Friday night to check us is as we drove 4 hours and arrived after 10pm....

My 16 year old son stayed here for 2 nights near the end of our stay in Alberta. Extremely clean, comfortable, relaxing and the staff were nice. The hot tub was great after a day of hiking.

Nice hotel which allowed early check in which was handy. Beds were comfortable and it was nice to have the use of a fridge (shared). The bath/shower in the room was slightly bizarre at first however it was nice.

We held our wedding here for our immediate family on July 7, 2016. We rented the Inn for just our group of 17 people from July 6-8 and it was perfect. The attention to detail that Lonny (the owner) and Leah (the event coordinator) provide is bar none the best of I have ever seen. Leading up to our arrival,...

My sister and (to be) brother-in-law booked the Bear and Bison Inn for their wedding. The Inn holds ten rooms I believe and they booked them all. In essence they booked the Inn for this special occasion for 3 days. The experience during the time we were there was absolutely fantastic. Everything from the incredible mountain views to the outside...

We had our wedding at the Bear and Bison Inn last year on September 4th. The Bear and Bison staff were incredibly accommodating even though we only gave them a short 3 week notice before our day! We so appreciated the wonderful organization and flexibility from our arrival, to the ceremony, the reception and the morning breakfast for our guests...

“We were in the lowest level. If you choose the main floor or upper floor, you would get a better view of the mountains.”

“The rooms all face the same way--so you'll have a great view-if stairs are an issue then rooms 4, 5 & 6 are on the main floor.”
