Emerald Lake Lodge Field, British Columbia


Category: Lodges

In 1986, Emerald Lake Lodge re-opened as an exclusive evergreen leisurely and business port of call. Located in Yoho National Park, just 25 miles west of Lake Louise, the historic lodge still remains at the heart of the resort. Today, the area remains one of Canada's most outstanding year-round accessible wilderness settings.


Yesterday's travellers came by rail and horse-drawn coach, in search of the extraordinary they arrived at a summer retreat on the shores of delicate Emerald Lake. Emerald Lake was first discovered by the renowned Tom Wilson, in 1882, whilst the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway was underway. By 1902, the CPR had built the original guest lodge, but it was only in the mid-1920s that the lodge had expanded and improvements to the road could make it possible to reach the resort by motorcar.


Dotted around the 13-acre peninsula, are 24 cabin-style buildings (accommodating up to 200 guests), all of which are newly built and resonate with some of the most traditional architecture of the Lodge. All rooms are equipped with private baths, wood burning fieldstone fireplaces which are stocked daily, and balconies. The lounge area is landmarked by regular guests for its burly oak bar enhancement, salvaged from an 1890's Yukon saloon. The Lodge also includes a formal dining room, quaint and quiet reading rooms, a more vibrant games room for the activity-driven individual as well as well-equipped conference facilities. Furthermore, upper or lower large verandahs offer a captivating appreciation of nature’s most pleasing views.


Directions:Emerald Lake Lodge and Conference Centre is located approximately 200 km (125 miles) from Calgary, Alberta. To reach the lodge from Calgary, leave via 16th Avenue heading west. This route turns into the Trans Canada Highway #1 - which you follow directly to Field, British Columbia.
