Deer Lodge


Looking for a quiet retreat with dazzling views, delicious cuisine and attentive staff – Deer Lodge has it all. Located just minutes by foot from the enchanting Lake Louise, this century old property has seen substantial restoration of its early architecture. Think intimate rooms with inviting feather comforters and historic furniture.

Deer Lodge is just minutes away from world famous Lake Louise. The lodge is a testament to a bygone era, and retains much of its original hand hewn log structure and decor.

It is beloved by international and local guests for its unique rustic mountain accommodation.

In all, these charming elements are the reason so many repeat visitors, local and international, can’t seem to get enough of our mountain property.
