“Glamping in winter, what? YES! We did it (with our little one!) at one of the most authentic and secluded mountain retreats we have visited: the Mount Engadine Lodge. Staying here surrounded by massive mountains has been magical, truly enchanting.”
The lodge is situated in the lesser known Kananaskis County (yet as stunning as neighboring Banff National Park) in Alberta and we think this is a true hidden mountain gem. Oh, we almost wanted to keep this one for ourselves… just to have a secret escape to book once in a while. But as we -unfortunately- don’t live in Canada, we have to share this with you. This is a true The Boho Guide gem, nestled amidst the breathtaking Canadian Rockies.
Mount Engadine Lodge is a pet-friendly mountain lodge located in the heart of Kananaskis, Alberta. The lodge is nestled in the heart of Spray Valley Provincial Park, ensuring that every glance out your window reveals awe-inspiring vistas of alpine meadows, sparkling lakes and majestic peaks. The lodge features a variety of accommodation options: pretty cabins, comfortable glamping tents, lodge rooms and even a yurt: all with beautiful mountain views. What we really loved was the fact that all meals are included with your stay: a very good breakfast, a packed lunch and a three course dinner along with their popular afternoon tea service with the best snack platter you can imagine. It all tasted sooo good! The main lodge and it’s deck is very cosy too, and did you spot the dog picture wall? Douze points! No time to stay here but passing by? You just have to stop by for afternoon tea and the platter, like we said: the best!
We were lucky enough to stay in one of their glamping tents and it was a magical experience. With no in-room telephones, computer jacks or televisions to divert your attention, the tent was just rustic enough to feel like you’re out there but in absolute comfort. There is a king-size bed, couch, table and chairs, ensuite bathroom with hot shower, gas fireplace and lovely patio with deck chairs. Hello again, mighty mountains! The cabin at the edge looked very stunning too and we have to come back one day to stay there or in the yurt!
So whether you are looking for a relaxing stay enjoying the comforts of the lodge, or an adventure filled getaway exploring the local trails in the mountains: you are in for an unforgettable experience. The lodge is an adventure playground! This place is ideal for couples and families (we traveled with a 1.5 year old and staying in the glamping tent in winter was perfectly fine!) and while we were there in a winter wonderland, it must be so beautiful in summer too. A must stay. Did we mention the afternoon tea snack platter?
