Cathedral Mountain Lodge is a new luxury escape located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The wilderness resort is situated on the glacier-fed Kicking Horse River in British Columbia’s Yoho National Park, a scenic two-hour drive from Calgary, Alberta.
The resort re-opens for the season on May 24, 2007 and is offering 50 percent off its rates through June 10, 2007. A Mountain View Wapta King Cabin begins at $170 CAD per night.
The Romance by the River Package includes three nights accommodation in a luxury cabin, sparkling wine, handmade Bernard Callebaut chocolate dipped strawberries, a picnic basket breakfast and a three-course gourmet dinner for two in the Riverside Dining Room. The package starts at $780 CAD per couple and is available until the resort closes for the winter on Sept. 30, 2007.
Cathedral Mountain Lodge and its 29 luxury log cabins feature wood burning or gas fireplaces and deep soaker tubs. Expansive windows look out onto the stone-cut mountains and rippling river waters. The newly completed timber frame lodge was constructed of re-claimed Douglas fir posts and beams and designed by Vancouver, BC architect Brad Lamoureux. The Riverside Dining Room and Great Room feature an indoor/outdoor river rock fireplace, 24-foot vaulted ceiling and 18-foot high windows.
Cathedral Mountain Lodge is part of the Capilano Group of Companies, which also includes Capilano Suspension Bridge and Treetops Adventure in Vancouver, BC and Moraine Lake Lodge near Lake Louise, Alberta. A new resort project on Mackenzie Beach in Tofino on Vancouver Island is scheduled for completion in 2009.
