The location is good. However the facility is more primitive than I thought. I'm kind of deceit by the photo. The actual chalet is pretty small

The location roughly halfway between Banff and Lake Louise was nice. The property was more "rustic" (aka: showing it's age) than I expected. In addition, our room wasn't very clean when we checked in, and there was a mouse in our cabin.

The cabins are beautiful and well kept. They are located between Lake Louise and Banff. Pricey but worth it if you can afford it. I would definitely go back.

This is the 2d stay at Castle Mountain and the accommodations were excellent. The only reason I cannot give a better rating is due to th constant train horn you hear each time the train crosses Highway 93 which in back of the cabins. The repeated horns all through the night is very disturbing. Otherwise, the cabin (1 bedroom) was spacious and quite comfortable. Everything is provided, included firewood, kindling and matches for th fireplace which you can also watch from bed. The kitchen had all that is needed to prepare meals and there are communal grills as well. There is also a fire pit. While there are no restaurants or cafes on premises, same we’re not missed. Pets are welcomes and our dog (border collie) was very at home. As compared to Baker Creek cabins down the road, these cabins are much more spacious, better appointed, cheaper, The property is directly across from castle Mountain and it is easy to get to Lake Louise, Banff and all activities. But for the train we enjoyed our stay. Whether we would return is not a definite due to interrupted sleep.

Several of the cabins are located across the street from major train crossing and right next to a somewhat busy road - the train horn blares from 12:30 a.m. throughout the night, and the cabins shake from the trains passing. While this place has terrific potential, you will not be able to get a good night's sleep. And given the hefty price tag, I was expecting a much better experience - what a disappointment. Don't waste your money.

Perfect location for hikers, and for anyone wanting easy access to both Banff and Lake Louise areas.

Charming room but miniature stall shower. Very close to train tracks so kind of noisy

Dear Outdoorsy, I am sorry to hear you did not have a good experience; the train is a force to be reckoned with for sure. As with many of the property's in the area these lodging sites are here because of the railway and why they are so close to the tracks. Again sorry you felt it was a waste of your money.
