Just south of Jasper, the Tekarra Lodge overlooks the national park and is a wonderfully rustic place to stay. Whether you want to enjoy the outdoor activities in the area such as rafting or take a more leisurely stroll along the trails, or join in the yoga or nightly fire pit, you can choose your pace. The peace and charm are a real draw (there are no TVs or telephones) as well as the spectacular mountain view from your cabin’s porch. When you sample the delights of the restaurant, know that Marilyn Monroe also ate there. This is a very comfortable way to delve into Alberta’s wilderness.
The cabins are rustic and unique in design; Local hardwoods and stones are used throughout the cabins which feature wood paneling, boast hard wood floors and offer both propane heat and wood burning fireplaces. The kitchens are fully equipped with utensils, plates, pots and pans, glassware, toaster and coffee maker.
