  • Overview

  • Hours

This wilderness lodge in majestic Kananaskis Country is a 40-minute drive from Canmore. Drop in for afternoon tea or reserve 24 hours ahead for Chef Gerard Garnier’s seasonally inspired three-course dinner (the menu changes daily). A Canmore native and former ski racer, Garnier learned to cook with fresh, healthy ingredients to maintain his regimen as a competitive athlete. Today, he sources quality local ingredients and often prepares dishes from family recipes presented by lodge staff, such as Mount Engadine’s popular Sunday strudels.


Mount Engadine Lodge has nine cozy guest rooms, yurt accommodation and  rustic décor including antique snowshoes and ski poles displayed on the walls. At the family-style dining room with communal tables, diners share stories with their travelling companions and new friends. The deck with mountain and meadow views (watch for moose) is popular on warm days, while the lounge with bookcases and stone fireplaces is the favourite spot for afternoon tea on cooler days. Activities include hiking, cycling, fishing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
