BUFFALO MOUNTAIN LODGE
Distinct from the majority of Banff hotels, Buffalo Mountain Lodge is situated on Tunnel Mountain – formerly called “Sleeping Buffalo” by the First Nations living in the region. A peaceful mountain retreat, the lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge’s windows.
Banff is a popular destination for local and international visitors alike, who flock to the area for the world-renowned hiking, skiing and wildlife. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is the secret gem of the area, offering everything a visitor pictures when imagining a stay in a pristine National Park – comfortable accommodation with fireplaces to cozy up to, uniquely mountain style architecture including post and beam construction and high open ceilings, and delicious hearty meals made up of dishes that can’t be found back home. A stay at Buffalo Mountain Lodge will be savoured for years to come.
Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff. The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge’s highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo.
