  • 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 Mandy Leighton’s seasonally inspired three-course dinner that changes daily. Chef Leighton graduated from the Culinary Institute of Canada in PEI and moved to Calgary in 2011. There, she enrolled in the Canadian School for Holistic Nutrition where she received a certification as a holistic nutritionist. Her love for the mountains and wholesome food perfectly compliments Mount Engadine Lodge and the landscape that surrounds it.

Atmosphere

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.
