Kilmorey Lodge, Waterton Lakes
The historic Kilmorey Lodge, a member of the 'Charming Inns of Canada' is one of the original buildings in Waterton town and has been receiving guests since the late 1920s. The log-style building is reminiscent of a country inn, furnished with antiques and treasures collected over the years. Photographs from days gone by line the hallways, a visual history of the lodge and the early years of Waterton Lakes National Park. There are 23 unique, guest rooms in the Kilmorey Lodge; each is decorated with antique furniture, and a beautiful down comforter on every bed guarantees a cosy "at home" feeling.
The Library Lobby, with its large, comfortable couch and fieldstone fireplace, is an ideal place to curl up with a classic book, play games or simply enjoy the warmth of the fire. Furnished with TV and VCR, games table, desk and coffee table, the library is also very popular as an informal meeting place for small groups and families. For cocktails and good food, the Ram's Head Lounge (left) offers an intimate and warm atmosphere with a full bar and a great menu; in summer the outdoor patio has a superb view of the Emerald Bay. For dining with an 'Albertan' flavour, the lodge's Lamp Post Dining Room offers seasonal menus using the freshest of local ingredients, while the more casual Gazebo Cafe (open in July and August) is the perfect place to relax with a view across the bay to the magnificent Rocky Mountains.
