We arrived with no reservations and were warmly greeted. The fall special was a nice surprise as was receiving a $20 rebate for eating at the attached restaurant. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed both the attached deck and the patio off the main reception area. There are a wide range of room styles from rustic cabins...

Hi - we're glad you enjoyed your surprise. We are so pleased when people come to see us outside of the regular summer season, as we pride ourselves on being a four-season Resort. Thank you also for the kind words for Neeraj and Patel - they indeed work so very hard to ensure our guests are well taken care of....

We highly recommend this quiet, clean and friendly accommodation. The attached restaurant serves tasty food at a reasonable price. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room on the second floor had a balcony with 2 chairs. There was also a large central balcony area on a lower level with chairs and tables with umbrellas. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Spent 4 nights in a rustic cabin. Area is gorgeous. Staff are very nice. Unfortunately, cabin was not terribly clean. Floors need a good scrubbing. 1 firepit for 3 cabins so if someone else is using it, too bad. On Wednesday we discovered BBQ was broken, told maintenance on Thursday. He said they would replace it that evening. When we...

We had an interesting stay at the Elkwater Lake Lodge and Resort. We booked an Alpine Cabin using their online reservations two months prior to our stay. According to the website, and pictures found online, the Alpine cabins were newer and looked decent. When we got in they had no record of our reservation. Apparently they were having problems with...

Thank you for writing this review and indicating to us where we can better devote some of our resources. We indeed did have a most troubling summer with the system crashing, and have taken steps to ensure that a proper backup system is now in place. Similarily we will be taking steps in the future to upgrade our older buildings...

The wilderness trip from the Saskatchewan to Alberta side of the Cyprus Hills Park should not be missed --except that if you all go, it would not be wilderness anymore. So don't come (i could say it louder, but why?). Slow drive on washed out, gravel, dusty, road. But wow. Arrived too late to set up a tent, so booked...

Spent 5 nights at the Lodge and plan on going back next year, maybe even for a winter trip. Staff was fantastic, friendly and efficient! Our loft suite was great, comfortable, clean and roomy. There were a few minor things but nothing to hinder our stay. The pool was a descent size and the salt water was nice. Lots to...

I originally called to book two cabins at the end of August. The person that I spoke to told me that they were too busy and could call me back (?!?!). I did not receive a callback.

Overall a great experience. However, because they don't have much competition in the area, the service is a little below average. The staff make it seem like they care about your needs; however, service is slow and lagging. I had to ask three times for fresh towels before I finally gave up and went to get them myself. Otherwise, apart...
