It may have been intended as a tea house, back in the 1920s when it was first built; but today, Deer Lodge caters to an adventure-hungry crowd seeking a luxurious yet authentic resort in Banff. Deer Lodge has thought of convenient touches for its guests, such as a shuttle service to ski stations, as well as indulgent extras like the rooftop Jacuzzi and dry-wood sauna, ensuring that every ounce of effort made out in the park is duly rewarded. Matching the decadence of the facilities is the quality of the cuisine, thanks to tantalising creations made with creative, considerate flair. Produce is not just seasonal; it is also locally sourced, with some cattle even raised on the brand’s own ranch, including bison and elk. As for the surroundings? It really is just a few minutes’ walk to the iconic turquoise waters of Lake Louise, so if you’ve been poring over photos of this natural beauty, wondering how to get yourself there as quickly as possible, then you really need look no further than Deer Lodge.

Irresistible dishes populate the menu here, from chilled melon soup with seared scallop to grilled bison ribeye, all the more delicious when paired with fine Canadian and international wines. Between meals, stay refreshed with a dose of the hotel’s afternoon tea, harking back to its 1920s origins.
