Canada’s Secluded Romantic Mountain Getaway
Yesterday’s travellers were adventurers in search of the extraordinary.
And that’s exactly what they found when they arrived by rail and horse-drawn coach to the shores of B.C.’s exquisite Emerald Lake – located in the heart of what is known today as Yoho National Park. Legendary guide Tom Wilson first stumbled across this small gem of a lake – famed for its jade-coloured waters – in 1882 during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Today, the area remains one of North America’s most outstanding and year-round accessible wilderness settings.
Built of hand-hewn timber and featuring massive stone fireplaces, the lodge includes an elegant dining room, quiet reading and sitting rooms, conference facilities and a games room. Our lounge features an oak bar salvaged from an 1890′s-era Yukon saloon. From upper and lower verandas, the vistas of surrounding mountainscapes are breathtaking. Few destinations in Canada offer this unique mix of luxury and “we-are-but-specks-on-this-planet” nature.
Want to leave the world behind in true mountain style?
We hope you consider Emerald Lake Lodge – located 25 miles west of Lake Louise – for your next feast in the wilderness.
