I did a lot of reviewing and comparing places to stay in the Rockies area. My wife and I had a conference in Calgary, so we tagged on a few personal days. Regardless of whether you are going to to be in AB, or BC, this is an easy spot to get to. I compared every place between Kananaskis to Jasper to Golden and thankfully chose Cedar House. What an incredible experience. We stayed in the Adventure Chalet and it was absolutely perfect. It had every ammenity we needed, with every perk, like the hot tub facing Kicking Horse Mountain. We started and ended our days in the hot tub soaking in the quiet, the surroundings, and the view. We couldn’t have been more satisfied with the premise or service. So private and so peaceful. We will definitively go back.
“The Garden Chalet was perfect for our family of four to explore the 5 nearby national parks. It was so nice to e high up on the valley, with the beautiful mountains across the valley as a backdrop. And the outdoor deck with the grill and hot tub was just what we needed! We will definitely recommend this place!”
“Wow! What an amazing place this is! Exactly what we were after for our honeymoon. The cabin has been very cozy, beautiful & warm. We have enjoyed using the hot tub looking out over the trees to the snowy mountains. Each day, we have been able to do something different which has given us memories which will last forever. The food & service in the restaurant were perfect as was our entire stay!
We will tell all our friends & family about this paradise & we hope to return one day. Thank you!”
I took my girlfriend to the Cedar House Resataurant and Chalets as a surprise trip the beginning of January. From the minute we arrived we were in awe. We stayed in the adventure chalet. I could live year round in one of these! BBQ and hot tub on the balcony and only a short drive to kicking horse ski area. For the price of the chalet and considering that the chalet is self contained I find this a far better , cheaper , alternative to staying right on the hill if you are skiing kicking horse. Chalet came with a nice little woodstove that heated the cabin excellent! The private atmosphere is also a bonus. There are other chalets/cabins in close proximity but when out in the hot tub , and even being inside the cabin we felt like we were by ourselves in the middle of the mountains. We went for dinner at the restaurant and hands down the best meal , and service I have ever experienced. The chef was the only person working as the servers were caught in a snowstorm in Calgary. So the Chef not only cooked for us , but he also was serving and cooking for the other 4 couples in for dinner including us. I have stayed with Fairmont Hotels and Resorts in the mountains. Overpriced for the product you receive. If you are looking for great bang for your buck , friendly service , great private atmosphere , and delicious dining then look no further! make Cedar House Restaurant and Chalets your next stay!
My husband and I, along with our daughter and daughter’s fiance stayed at the Garden Chalet this past weekend (nights of April 4,5, 2014). We were so very impressed at this lovely chalet, with all it’s amenities, all for a reasonable price and pet friendly too! We so appreciated it’s cleanliness, and all the touches that you thought of – right down to the terry cloth robes and crocs by the hot tub, the terry cloth robes by each bed, the games and movies, the flat screen TV and ipod docs, the wood burning stove all set with a fire ready to go, etc. We appreciated the notes everywhere to assist us with our stay and how you would like things left. We have sung your praises all day today to anyone who would listen, have given you a great rating on Trip-Advisor, and fully plan to come back again sometime soon.
Please accept our congratulations on your lovely chalets, your cleaning and office staff. You can be very proud of this place. We also tried out the restaurant and found it fantastic!
