Cathedral Mountain Lodge

Intimate, classic and open for the summer season

The last time I traveled to Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge was priority number one on my partner's must-see list. I chickened out (something I regret now) but my partner didn't (something he's insanely proud of).

It closes every October and re-opens in May. Although I'm sure the snow is beautiful, road conditions become nearly impassable during the winter months.

If you've never been, it's situated inside Canada's Yoho National Park, which means you'll be treated to hiking trails that go on forever. And it's only a short drive from Takakkaw Falls (second in height to Niagara Falls), Emerald, Moraine and Lake Louise. Their 31 rooms within 23 spectacular luxury log cabins and it's delicious cuisine offering might only be eclipsed by the spectacular Rocky Mountain views.

To kick off their post-covid season for 2021, Cathedral Mountain Lodge is offering a range of specials to celebrate their opportunity to be open.

Nancy Stibbard, CEO of CGC purchased the lodge in 2001 and immediately began adding additional cabins and renovating the existing property. Architect, Brad Lamoureux, wanted the inside of the lodge to reflect the scenic views outside and incorporated an indoor/outdoor river rock fireplace, vaulted ceilings and oversized windows.
