    Had a great 2 night stay in a cabin that was well appointed and clean. Great location in the park, close to stables and the restaurant. Would recommend for couples or families. Firepit at each cabin with porches to relax on.

    We enjoyed a great lunch after a visit to Sylvan Lake. The lodge is rustic, the service was friendly and the food was good. Lodging is available, although we did not take advantage of this. The bar seats are saddles! Very entertaining and comfortable.

    1. Are there any laundry facilities onsite? 2. We are wanting to go horseback riding at the Blue Bell Stables and do the Chuck wagon dinner-do we need to make reservations prior to the day we plan to do either activity? 3. Is it suggested that we make meal reservations ahead of time if we plan to dine at the lodge?

    Yes, I believe that they do have air conditioning. I believe that we were in 4. We used it!

    The fire pits have grills. You can use from the room (Provided for inside fireplace). If you need more wood, the adjacent general store sells it. The only thing they don't sell is lighters/matches. Odd to have fireplaces... More
