At noon on Sunday, 18 Sept., we started the 3.3 mile, 1215’ gain, hike from the trailhead on the Lake Louise shore walk 600’ from the Fairmont Chateau. At 2:16 pm we arrived at the tea house in the wilderness built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1924. There is a viewpoint near the tea house with restrooms just a... More

We walked up from the main Lake Louise car park, around 6kms away, so we were ready for a break when we arrived. Note that we took 4 hours to do the hike including stops for pictures and lunch here. As it was the last week the tea house was open for the season choices were a little limited, but... More

We began our hike around the lakeshore of Lake Louise, and before we knew it, we were well on our way to the teahouse. It was more grueling for my husband than myself, but I was enjoying the challenge. We saw the helicopter fly in several times, carrying tethered packages, and then learned that they were making deliveries, so there... More

We enjoyed this stop on our hike of the Plain of Six Glaciers. We enjoyed the tea, which helped us warm up on a chilly day, but the soup and homemade bread were also good. Even though it was crowded (we got to the tea house around lunch time), we were still able to get a seat right away by... More

We are not sure why the chocolate cake was so good. Was it the hike up the hill, was it the elevation, was it the view. Whatever it was, we loved it! The tea house is primitive and they were super busy even on a rainy cold day. The service was slow, but we didn't care, since we weren't in... More

If you hike, have a cup of tea and pastry at the tea house. Cool place with real authentic alpine feel to the kitchen. All heavy food stuff are helicopter in twice a year and or hand carry into the tea house. Items are reasonably price. If you need to use the Toilets - hold your breath or do it... More

You must hike to this tea house! The hike alone is amazing and beautiful! If you hike for no other reason hike to get a piece of the caramel apple coffee cake. OMG. I loved this tea house. It has so much charm. Its expensive but if you think about the process involved in getting supplies to the tea house... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Teahouse. It was nice to rest and get refresh after the hike up. Homemade bread was a treat! Highly recommend doing a loop by stopping at both this teahouse and Lake Agnes Teahouse.

Well worth doing. For those of us not as physically fit, take it slow and handy. Views and scenery are simply beautiful.

The teahouse is very simple but you get very delicious food. We rested there for some chili and desserts in our hike in very cold and rainy day. It was just worth to hike up there.
