There is no shortage of history within the walls of Emerald Lake Lodge which sits in a location first discovered more than 100 years ago. Famed guide Tom Wilson first stumbled across the green waters of Emerald Lake in 1882 during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the whole area is now known as the Yoho National Park. With vast stone fire places and hand hewn timber, the lodge comprises an elegant dining room, peaceful reading/sitting room and games room. The oak bar in the lounge was salvaged from an 1890’s Yukon saloon.
The Mount Burgess Dining Room is renowned for its Rocky Mountain cuisine and seasonal menu; the Kicking Horse Lounge features a wide menu of regional micro beers and the Mount Burgess Dining Room menu can also be enjoyed here. During the summer months, Cilantro on the Lake offers bistro-style lunches and evening meals.
There are 85 rooms and suites with private bathrooms, balconies and wood burning fire places. To guarantee a lake view you need to book either a Lake View or Emerald Suite. There is no mobile phone reception at Emerald Lake Lodge and rooms do not have televisions although Wi-Fi is available in the main lodge.
Emerald Lake Lodge offers a dining room and bar lounge, reading/sitting room and games room, dry sauna, outdoor hot tub and fitness room. Emerald Lake Lodge is a 20 minute drive west of Lake Louise and 5 minutes from Field in the Yoho National Park. The drive from Calgary will take around 2 ½ hours and cars must be left in a secure car park close to the lodge. From here guests are transported by shuttle to the lodge itself.
