Yoho Hotels and Lodges

The Kicking Horse Lodge and Truffle Pigs Bistro is located in Field, and is locally owned and operated. The lodge was renovated in 2008, and has fourteen rooms. High speed internet access is available for a nominal fee.
The Truffle Pigs Bistro offers what are, quite simply, the most scrumptious desserts between Calgary and Vancouver. Even if you’re just passing through, stop in and pick something up, but bring a friend to share with since Truffle Pigs desserts are too rich for just one person.
Rates are reasonable, and change depending on the season. If you’re planning to do the Burgess Shale hike, which is only open during the summer, shoulder season rates are in effect ($115-$175 per night). Pets are welcome in two rooms, and cost an additional $15 per night.

The Emerald Lake Lodge is located in Yoho National Park, about 20 minutes west of Lake Louise. The focus of the lodge is on peace and quiet, with internet access and televisions not available in guest rooms.
In 2009 the Emerald Lake Lodge is offering a Burgess Shale Centennial Package, including two nights’ accommodation at the Lodge, breakfast each day, a hiker’s lunch, the Burgess Shale hike, and a Burgess Shale centennial hat and t-shirt for $465 per person. Several presentations will be offered throughout the summer.
All accommodations are in 24 cabins surrounding the main lodge, and are non-smoking. Rates in the shoulder season are approximately $375 per night based on two adults.

Cathedral Mountain Lodge offers both lodge and log cabin accommodations. Rates while the Burgess Shale hike is open range from $250 to $500 per night, depending on the type of cabin or lodge room booked. Telephones and television are not available in guest rooms, in order to create a mountain escape. Pets are permitted. Dining at the Lodge focusses on organic and free range cuisine, and the wine cellar is extensive.
