Alright, we’ll say it— Emerald Lake Lodge, a Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts offering, is one of the best-kept secrets by Calgarians. While the place might still be a hidden gem for the rest of the world, to us it is an iconic escape from the city.
It’s secluded. It’s scenic. It’s snug. And it’s straight-up magical… as magical as fall itself. Clearly, this all-season wonderland has everything to make for the ultimate romantic fall getaway.
Frankly, the incredible natural beauty, the serene vibe and the sheer proximity of the place are reasons enough for us to hit this dreamy destination. But just in case you need more, here are five reasons why you need to head to the Emerald Lake Lodge with your S.O. RN—
The cozy, historic accommodation
Emerald Lake Lodge interiors are just as beautiful as its historic exterior and the breathtaking mountains it is surrounded by. There are 24 chalet-style cabins here with 88 rooms. And each room offers a comfy vibe, wood-burning fieldstone fireplaces and a private balcony. So, you can enjoy your morning cuppa joe taking in the views from the balcony. And spend your evenings cozying up by the fireside.
The culinary journey
For a secluded place, Emerald Lake Lodge sure offers quite the culinary experience. Want to dig into CRMR’s renowned Rocky Mountain Cuisine? Head to the Mount Burgess Dining Room. Want to sip on a few drinks? Kicking Horse Lounge it is. So, you can enjoy your meal and drinks amidst all the Rockies’ beauty. An ideal date-night setting!
The jade lake
Emerald Lake is dubbed as one of the most beautiful lakes in the Canadian Rockies. This brilliant jade lake is surrounded by fall foliage and reflects the mighty mountains making it an unforgettable sight. One you want to revel in with your partner.
The epic adventure
Lazing around Emerald Lake is a pretty good way to spend your time. But there’s even more you can do. Consider an easy hike along the shoreline or take advantage of the many wonderful trails in the park. There are plenty of waterfalls, bridges and more, that you can explore while taking in the beautiful yellow and crimson foliage.
The unplugged experience
What makes this insanely beautiful place even more incredible is the fact that you’re off the grid. The lodge has limited cell reception as well as no WiFi or TVs in the rooms. WiFi is only available in the main lodge. In this electronic-lite environment, there’s nothing to disturb you while you spend some quality time with the bae.
If the reasons and the pretty pics above have you dreaming of a romantic fall getaway, well, we feel you. Check out the CRMR website for more pictures, accommodation, pricing, directions and anything else you may need!
