My family and I attended a reunion this year and stayed at Baker Creek Chalets, a short drive from Lake Louise, within Banff National Park. We couldn't have picked a nicer place I'm sure. The log cabin we stayed in (#9) had two bedrooms with comfortable queen and single beds, as well as a pull-out bed in the living room area if needed, a kitchenette, full bath, two decks, one of which had a picnic table on it, and best of all a stone fireplace. The cabin was very clean & comfortable & looked out onto the Rockies. The mountains were stiill snow covered and on a sunny day looked absolutely glorious. To save money, we bought our own groceries, which turned out to be a good idea as things tended to be expensive within the Park. We didn't eat out anywhere as a result but enjoyed cooking our own meals. There is a resturant nearby if you wished to dine elsewhere. The kitchette is rather small, but has a stove,1/2 fridge, microwave, pots,pans, dishes & utensiles, everything we needed. We also brought charcoals with us & had a scrumptious BBQ using one of the firepits near the little creek which runs beside the Chalets. You couldn't have asked for a more picturesque spot, with snow covered mountains surrounding you, ice still hanging onto to the sides of the creek & ocassionally the sound of a freight train heading to the Pacific Coast carrying wheat from the Prairies. A Canadian postcard for sure. Staff did everything they could to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Each day they dropped off a free load of firewood to ensure we had enough to have a nice fire in the evenings if we wished. The air was clear and crisp & it was a peaceful & rejuvenating place to stay. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling in the area without any hesitation. I'll definately re-book there when in the area again.
