We just spent 5 days at the Lodge and it was a fabulous time! The lodge is cozy and rustic... beds were comfortable, the lodge is quiet at night and great atmosphere. The food is very good, healthy (except those wonderful desserts) and they accommodated dietary requests. The tea time snacks hit the spot after a day of playing outside....

I won't attempt to write another long review of the Assiniboine (all the other reviews have accurately captured the location/lodge/friendliness of the team.

I just spent 4 days at Assiniboine Lodge in the Rocky Mtns, and had a great time. It was a new experience for me to sleep in a comfortable bed and have excellent meals while staying in a remote mountain location in the winter, instead of the usual stays in alpine huts. I thoroughly enjoyed being pampered by the lodge's...

Travelled from Hawaii to this lodge to visit winter. We were not disappointed. 4 feet of snow and great skiing. They make good food and take the guests on great tours. We had a great time. They do have outhouses, but not too bad because it I cold out.

Twice now, each time a year in advance, we reserved a 4 day & 3 night stay at this unpretentious historic Lodge built in 1928. Both times we arrived in the fall when the larches turn color. Located in the remote backcountry of the Continental Divide/British Columbia, you only accessed is by hiking, skiing or helicopter in & out. Because...

We were fortunate enough to accompany Claude and Annick (Park managers) on an early winter trip to Assiniboine Lodge in early November 2016. We were all amazed by the outstanding snow conditions this early in the season with around 65cm of early snow fall. We spent our first day exploring the Niblet by snow shoe. This took us pass what...

What a place! You cannot find enough words to describe this place! Sure we see the Rocky Mountains from the highway, but to be immersed into them like this is incredible! You are flown into the lodge by helicopter, the ride is worth the price of admission on its own. It is maybe a 15 minute flight but you see...

This back country lodge, located at the base of Mt. Assinoboine in Mt. Assinoboine Provincial Park, is amazing. It doesn't have running water in the rooms or cabins,although warm water is delivered to your door in the morning.
