Emplacement parfait

3.6 on August 16, 2016

Les "Cabins" sont situées en plein Banff, parfait pour se promener en ville. Nous étions dans la Gopher Basement Suite et comme son nom l'indique, c'est vraiment en sous sol avec une petite fenêtre au raz du sol. Pour 2 nuits, c'était bien mais c'est à garder en tête si vous voulez y séjourner plus longtemps. C'est petit mais nickel et bien équipé. Des barbecues sont à disposition dans le jardin, des céréales faites maison pour le matin et des cookies pour le goûter. Les propriétaires sont aux petits soins.


Great Accomodation

We stayed 3 nights at the Banff beaver cabins in 2 separate rooms and both were wonderful. Lloyd and Laura were fantastic and helpful hosts and their home baked treats and granola was delicious. The cabins were in a great and central location to the town. Would definately stay here again


Best deal in Banff

The location and hospitality are superb. Laura and Lloyd are exceptional hosts who tend to their guests with such care and thoughtfulness. I hope the climate they have established continues with the new owners. We loved the Gopher Suite and hope to stay there again when we next visit Banff in a couple of years. This place is a gem.


PERFECT LOCATION - ENJOYABLE STAY

These historic cabins are ideal for those who want to be within walking distance to downtown Banff. When we had the need to use our car, the location made for an easy access without having to drive through the downtown. I will only review the cabin where we stayed, which was Lynx. This is a very small unit and having said that, it still had everything you would expect in a cabin except f room to put anything. The bed was comfortable, the unit was exceptionally clean and the bathroom although small was spotless. Milk and coffee were furnished and a person could go to the gazebo for buns, drinks and fruit. There is iced tea and lemonade in the afternoon. Each unit has a table and chairs if you care to eat there. There are a couple of luggage racks, but there is no place to set them, so we used the chairs from the dinette set. I noticed a slow cooker and wondered where one would use it. Very little room to prep any type of food. This was not important to us, but it could be for some. Yes, there is a small TV. Who has time to watch TV while in this area? Internet access was good also. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The couple who operate the cabins are very nice and friendly. The cabins could be sold by the time I write this. There didn't seem to be any communal dining which I did expect from and B & B. If we visit Banff again, we will definitely try to book another more roomy cabin. Book well in advance.


Great for a Banff Getaway

4.4 on August 08, 2016

I stayed 5 nights at Banff Beaver Cabins while in Banff. I could not have asked for a better location as the walk to the heart of Banff Ave was only steps away. The accommodations offered everything we needed. I absolutely loved when 4pm came around so that I could get a few cookies and was sad on the days that I was travelling and missed it. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Wonderful cabins

We had a wonderful stay at the cabins. They were comfortable and immaculate. The owners are very sweet and helpful. My kids loved the cookies every afternoon too. The location can't be beat. We were able to walk everywhere in town which was great. We will definitely be back!


Great stay in the Canadian Rockies

Simple clean rooms with good hospitality. Small breakfast (rolls with jam and butter plus fruit) which we added our own protein to. Great location in town.


Had an outstanding stay at Banff Beaver Cabins

Had a super stay at the cabins. It was a clean quiet place. The couple that care for it are super friendly and hospitable. Loved the location. Just a short walk to Main Street and all the sights. My family and I had a great time and are definitely going back.


Super Fantastical

4.8 on June 26, 2016

Book this place! My friends and I stayed here at the cougar suite a few weekends ago. The owners are the operators and take great pride in their work. The place was super cute, clean, and right downtown. I mean steps away from the main strip. The suite we stayed in had two bedrooms and a pullout couch. Even the room with the pullout had a door so privacy wasn't an issue. The kitchen is also equipped with more than the essentials. The owners baked us fresh cookies and homemade granola. We couldn't get enough! You really can't go wrong this place.
