Moraine Lake Lodge – Sumptuous lodge by the magnificent blue Moraine Lake.
This remote and luxurious lodge is perched on the forested shoreline of the turquoise waters of Moraine Lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. It’s incredibly scenic and all the rooms and cabins offer lake, forest, and mountain views. The setting is serene and peaceful as the lodge is the only development on the lake, situated at the end of a winding mountain road a short drive from the village of Lake Louise. All accommodations are stylish, cozy, and have a rustic flair, with most offering lovely wood-burning fireplaces. The on-site restaurant is upscale and serves extraordinary cuisine. A delicious buffet breakfast, afternoon tea, canoes, and guided hikes are all complimentary. This calm oasis has no cell phone coverage or TVs and phones in any of the rooms or cabins. The lodge is open in the summer only.
