Spacious Suites with Rock Fireplaces and Panoramic Mountain Views
Within 90 minutes of the Rundle Cliffs Luxury Mountain Lodge, five world-class skill hills, six championship golf courses, and thousands of miles of hiking and cross-country trails traverse the alpine terrain. The resort, surrounded by the Canadian Rocky Mountains, acts as a luxury base camp for these adventures year round. Its roomy condos—outfitted with real-rock fireplaces, heated hardwood floors, and contemporary kitchens—are an inviting respite after a day spent in the high-altitude playground, and showcase unobstructed views of the snow-capped peaks.
The lodge’s selection of two-bedroom condos includes suite 110, where a living room opens up onto a large deck with views of Ha Ling Peak and Policeman's Creek. The full kitchen in suite 115 encourages fine in-room dining with stainless-steel appliances, and rustic décor such as thick log beds and petrified lumberjacks impart country charm in suite 400. On the third floor of the hotel, an outdoor jacuzzi tub soothes muscles sore from traversing the nearby trails.
Named after a local mining train, the resort’s Iron Goat Pub & Grill serves upscale Canadian cuisine such as elk short ribs and maple-walnut salmon. An OpenTable's Diner's Choice winner in 2010, the timber-frame restaurant is crowned by two elevated patios that look out onto the surrounding mountain ranges. For other dining options, follow the hotel's creek-side walkways that wind their way to downtown Canmore.
Canmore, Alberta: Charming Rocky Mountain Town with Year-Round Recreation
Canmore, located 60 miles (97 km) west of Calgary, nestles along the banks of the Bow River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. A modest coal-mining village until 1979, the town attracted international attention when it was chosen as the site of the Nordic ski events for the 1988 Winter Olympics. Sixteen miles (25 km) from the hotel, Banff National Park encompasses more than 4,100 square miles (6,600 square km) of dramatic mountains, glacier lakes, and limestone canyons.
Downtown Canmore, situated a half-mile from the hotel, centers on Main Street, a three-block shopping boulevard lined with brewpubs, art galleries, and boutiques. Monthly events including art festivals and mountain-bike races keep the town buzzing by day, and an eclectic live-music scene entertains crowds late into the night. Though Canmore has come a long way since its coal-mining days—more than 30 eateries in town now serve international cuisine—the town keeps its industrial heritage alive through mining museums, commemorative statues, and suspended animation.
