Excellent cabins so close to town

5 on September 12, 2016

A gem of a place, stayed for two nights early August. Helpful and welcoming hosts. One block from Banff Avenue so going out for meals wasn't a problem. Will be booking the next time we are in Banff.


Fantastic cabins

4.4 on September 11, 2016

We loved our 3-night stay at Banff Beaver Cabins. The location is fantastic, one block away from the main Banff Avenue, but really quiet. Our cabin was cute and comfortable. The rolls and homemade jam for breakfast was delicious, as were the homemade cookies and lemonade in the afternoon. I'd definitely recommend this as somewhere to stay.


Goede locatie

We kozen deze breakfast vanwege de goed locatie. Je loopt zo naar de hoofdstraat waar alle winkels en restaurants zijn. Goed uitgangspunt voor een bezoek aan Banff NP. Kleine cabin, maar alles wat je nodig hebt en schoon. 's Morgens broodjes en fruit en op de kamer melk en cerials. Prima om de dag mee te starten.

The cabins were decorated perfectly and they have everything you need and more. You felt like you were in the woods, yet you are just blocks from town. I would stay there again.


Perfect stay

We really your stay in the Banff Beaver Cabins. We have been very well welcomed. The hotel is very near from the center of Banff which was very convenient. We highly recommend this place.


So convenient to everything in Banff

4.6 on August 30, 2016

My husband and I stayed a full week in the Elk Cabin. We loved having 2 bedrooms: 1 to sleep in and 1 to stage our clothes for our next adventure. They would be a bit small for 4 people, however, unless 2 were children. Despite being right in town, the cabin was very quiet - only one night did we hear folks heading home about the time the bars would close. Only a block to the main drag and all the restaurants was heaven for us. You couldn't ask for more convenience than that. Also, having off-street parking (come in on off the alley) was ideal. We didn't make much use of the kitchen, though we did use the full sized fridge for water bottles and left-overs. We adored the morning rolls Laura made - so light and airy! She also had a great selection of fruit every day and excellent granola in our unit for us. I was sad the nights we got back too late for some of her homemade cookies. All in all, I highly recommend Banff Beaver Cabins!


excellent

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

4.8 on August 11, 2016

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.
