Dine in the main lodge where breakfast, bag lunches, afternoon tea and dinner are served, then spend the rest of your tech-free time prioritizing hiking, cycling and kayaking in the summer or snowshoeing, fat biking and cross-country skiing in the winter.
I recently spent a night here with a girlfriend and we enjoyed the luxury of being able to drive into the wilderness lodge after spending the day skiing nearby trails. We also loved that we could snowshoe right out the main door of the lodge and across the road to the Rummel Lake Trail.
You can’t get much further into the backcountry than Mount Engadine Lodge, a boutique property an hour from Canmore, Alta., and two from Calgary. But Castleavery Hospitality Ventures, composed of Calgary area investors, has moved occupancy from 32 per cent to 85 per cent in three years.
The scenery was incredible, and we loved exploring the backcountry of the Rockies in winter. The new glamping tents at Mount Engadine Lodge are a great option for clients who want to experience the remote beauty of the backcountry without sacrificing creature comforts.
