The best thing about this place was the location. It is in an excellent spot where you can easily walk to everything but you do not deal with traffic, crowds, or noise. The cougar room is a basement under the living quarters of the owners, Laura and Lloyd Hollihan. You can hear some clanging, footfall and conversation but it’s subtle, not bad. Laura was friendly we saw Lloyd but he seemed to be working hard and we did not chat. There’s lots of room; two bedrooms, kitchen, bath, living room area. I fell down the stairs on the first day. The bottom stair is very dark. It would really help to paint a strip of light yellow or white paint or put glow in the dark tape on the stairs. It’s not lit well in the bottom of the dark staircase. Nice TV but couldn’t get the closed captioning off (and we are normally pretty good with remotes and such). Yard has a few benches or chairs, and flowers. There’s a gazebo where Laura places buns that look like a white hamburger bun and B said they were just ok, nothing special), fruit, jam and teas outside in the morning. She also gave B a large container of her granola (which B said was good and hearty) and said there was milk in the fridge. When I mentioned I was vegan and couldn’t eat the buns or granola I was kind of surprised that she didn’t make any effort to help me, like not even offering to have a piece of regular bread for me! Kinda weird. There’s coffee and tea in the room, too. The fridge is very noisy. B thought he saw a compost bin but I didn’t see that or a recycle bin. The bathroom was a little small and lacked storage places to keep our stuff as the one shelving system was loaded with her stuff. There was liquid hand soap in the bathroom but not in the kitchen. The towels were really nice! The bed in the larger room was comfy and the light beside the bed had an easy to reach switch. The sheets were polyester but super soft and cozy. Parking is great, right alongside the room in the back.

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.

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.

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.
4.4 on September 02, 2016
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.

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 location, clean accommodations, friendly hosts.

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.
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
5 on August 09, 2016
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.

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.

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.
4.4 on July 28, 2016
We stayed 3 nights in two different rooms and both were great. Lloyd and Laura were vey accomodating and there good provisions were delicious
5 on July 14, 2016
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!
3.6 on July 03, 2016
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.
5 on June 26, 2016
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.
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.
4.8 on June 19, 2016
lovely place to stay, cabins are homely and have everything you need. the warm rolls in the morning and the cookies in the afternoon were a nice touch. I stayed here almost 8 years ago and would definitely stay here again.
4.2 on June 08, 2016
Very clean cabin and very cozy. Comes with kitchenette so can cook simple breakfast and dinner. Beddings are very comfortable. Very nice for our family trip.
4.6 on October 06, 2015
This basement cabin was central and comfortable, the breakfast and snacks were an added bonus. It could be noisy at night due to the furnace next to the bedroom.
4.4 on September 16, 2015
The couple who own this comfortable B and B are extremely hospitable and provide wonderful touches to make you feel at home when you have been travelling. Each morning they have freshly baked bread, fruit and home made jams and every afternoon home baked biscuits, tea and drinks provided. The unit is beautifully decorated and extremely clean.
4.4 on September 07, 2015
The Beaver Cabins is ideally located in the middle of Banff - a short walk to the Information Centre and all the stores/restaurants. Given that there were 3 of us, the Cougar gave us sufficient space to each have our own space and the kitchenette enabled us to eat in when we wanted to. The homemade granola, breads/buns and cookies were a special treat and the fruit was plentiful. Laura and Lloyd were readily available and happy to ensure our stay was comfortable. I highly recommend Beaver Cabins!
4.0 on September 06, 2015
We were thrilled to find this little gem in the heart of Banff. The cabin was spotless and the service was fantastic. Ours could accommodate 3 easily and very comfortably. The kitchenette was well stocked with all the supplies you'd need. We even had milk in the fridge upon our arrival for the homemade granola we received at check in. The owners/operators have a great set up with a common area with a BBQ for guests to use and provide hot, fresh buns & jam in the morning and cookies & iced tea/lemonade in the afternoon. We'll be booking here again!
5 on September 05, 2015
Laura is a lovely lady and she baked delicious buns in the mornings for us with homemade jam. In the afternoons, there were a variety of homemade cookies and perfect homemade iced tea. So good!! There was everything we needed in the room and kitchen and everything provided was top quality. We had a perfect stay. Thanks Laura! :)
5 on September 04, 2015
Cute cabins one block off main street and shopping, yet very convenient to trails and sites. Cabins meticulously clean, breakfast outstanding, hosts super nice and helpful. Spent 3 days there before continuing to Jasper. Unexpectedly had the opportunity to return for 2 days but they were booked so had to stay elsewhere.Would stay there again on next trip without hesitation.
4.2 on August 28, 2015
We 6 adults stayed in Fox Cabin for 2 night this August. Lloyd and Laura are both helpful and friendly host, offering many tips to explore the Banff area.The breakfast and afternoon tea were fantastic, lots of home-made food. The Cabins and the surroundings are well decorated and with sense of history. However, Fox cabins is quite crowded for 6 adults.The living room is nearly full after extension of the sofa bed, but would be pretty nice for 4 adults. The kitchen is also small, with portable burner hot plate. The location is just in the center of Banff city, and everything is in walking distance. Recommended.

We loved our time at the Banff Beaver Cabins. We booked the room for our honeymoon stay. It was great to be able to prepare meals in our cabin, (the room had a kitchenette) or take a short walk to great nearby restaurants. Every morning and afternoon, we were greeted by fresh baked goods, local teas and fruit. In our room we had a supply of locally made soaps, which was a lovely touch. Aside from the charm of staying in a historical landmark, the best thing for us was feeling secluded from the bustle of the town when we wanted it, and yet being able to walk to shops, restaurants and the museum in no time at all. Super lovely place to stay!
3.0 on August 20, 2015
Nice and friendly hostess. We were a bit disappointed to find ourselves in a basement. Very clean.
5 on August 14, 2015
We loved our stay here and were delighted by the facilities and service. First of all, the location is great - a few steps away from the centre of town and with onsite parking. The cabin itself was lovely - we were a couple but stayed in 2 bedroomed cabin, so it was great having the extra space to unpack suitcases etc. There is so much packed into the space, and the hosts have included lots of little extras that were unexpected but so nice to have - such as milk and coffee (topped up throughout our stay), lovely soaps and hand washes, an amazing array of kitchen equipment in a snug little kitchen area - and that's not even getting to the cookies and refreshments in the afternoon and the bread, jams and fruit in the morning. They have made the most of the space available both inside and around the cabins, where there are nice seating areas. A wonderful stay which made Banff really special for us.
4.6 on August 13, 2015
Extremely close to the Main Street restaurants, etc. Host was super helpful - a light breakfast and afternoon tea was available every day. The only negative is that the WIFI was poor.
4.6 on August 03, 2015
This is a great find in Banff. Location is walking distance to the downtown shopping area. Found Bear cabin to be very homey and attractively decorated. Floor looked to be new. Kitchen was well equipped. Cabins are very clean and there is a propane grill available for cooking out. Would be a good place for a family in the larger cabins. Enjoyed the cookies and beverages available every afternoon. Nice to have parking right in front of the cabin although a bit of a challenge to get out when parking is fully booked with large vehicles. Would highly recommend this place and would stay again if ever return to the area.
4.8 on October 13, 2014
I stayed in the Gopher Cabin. I was a little nervous when booking because it was in the basement of another cabin. However, when I got there I was very happy. It was absolutely beautiful!!! There were two beds, beautiful floors and the kitchenette was awesome. I was able to make my own food and everything I needed was provided. They also gave me homemade granola and supplied milk. They provide fresh baked buns, juice, cookies and are very friendly. I will definitely be staying there anytime I go to Banff. It is definitely worth every penny!! :)
5 on September 28, 2014
Location is perfect, access to downtown food and shopping. Owners very helpful.
4.4 on September 28, 2014
We loved the cabin - it was right in the middle of Banff, with a car park , a well-equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi and a friendly helpful hostess who provided yummy home-made buns for breakfast and cookies in the afternoon. The cabins are 100 years old but fully modernised. What more could you want?
4.6 on September 26, 2014
Very comfortable and well located cabins. Laura was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The facilities were excellent with special little touches. The breakfast was just brilliant. A perfect holiday location!
4.6 on September 23, 2014
I book the gopher suite as a surprise anniversary getaway. I feel in love with the place right away. It was adorable & in a great location. Laura greeted us on arrival & took us for a tour of our cabin. We made coffee each morning which is included & sat outside enjoying the beautiful mountains. We can't wait to come back & we will bring the kids next time.
4.6 on September 20, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Laura takes every opportunity to answer questions and provide hospitality. The morning buns and fruit were delicious, as well as the afternoon tea and cookies. The Lynx cabin was very tiny, and we would probably try a larger cabin the next time we visit.

Lovely hosts. Small but clean and satisfactory room.
4.6 on September 17, 2014
Had a wonderful stay in Banff Beaver Cabins. We stayed in the Gopher Cabin, and found it very comfortable. It had its own little well equipped Kitchenette and it was clean and well appointed. The beds were very clean and comfortable. It was one street back from Banff Avenue, which is the town centre, so very close to everything. Laura was an excellent hostess and provided a lovely breakfast every morning, which included Muesli, fresh bread and fruit. Every afternoon there were home baked cookies and ice tea. Overall, a really pleasant stay.
4.2 on September 12, 2014
Our hosts nice and accommodating. Parking adequate but tight if guest bringing a big SUV or truck. The cabin Bear was clean, the kitchen well equipped and the bed comfortable. Shower and toilet sink small. The furnace heater was loud and it was located where your bed is directly getting hit by the flow of the air. I do hope they would be able to fix this problem.

We stayed for two nights in Fox cabin, everything related to the inside of the cabin is relevant ONLY for Fox This cabin has two very small bedrooms with queen (or so) beds, mattresses are very soft. There is a very small kitchen that is very well equipped, coffee machine, two burner electric stove, dishes, pots, etc. There is a nice, small leaving room with a couch that opens to a double bed (old mattress) + TV The shower is very small and not convenient at all The cabin has plenty of windows, very bright and cozy The cabin was very clean, nice and welcoming The location is great, steps from the downtown, river, info center The house and cabins are very old, but well maintained The area between all cabins is used as parking, so it's not very nice to sit outside, but there is a frontyard of the house that can be used Food: granola and milk in the cabin, buns, jam, cookies outside during certain hours Hosts are very helpful and nice. Will stay again
4.6 on August 18, 2014
We stayed in the cougar suit. Having 3 adults and two kids this was definitely the way to have a wonderful nights sleep. Our young children were very comfortable. We love it. The breakfast was good quality but very basic. Would recommend!

We stayed in the cosy gopher suite and loved it. Great facilities in the cabin and convenient location. Lloyd and Laura were super friendly and helpful too. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Clean & cozy cabin in excellent location, minutes walk from river, shopping and museum. Operators give warm welcome and great breakfast, snacks and helpful tips. A bit of the "countryside" in the heart of Banff.
4.4 on August 14, 2014
A surprise jewel in downtown Banff. Close to everything. Clean, super friendly and helpful hostess. We had the "Snuggle Cabin" small, but perfect for our needs.
5 on August 13, 2014
We stayed for 5 nights and it was one of the best of our trip. The cabin was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. It is located within short walking distance of Banff town but was quiet and undisturbed by the crowds. The owners couldn't have done more to make our stay more pleasurable. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the Lynx cabin; this is a tiny appartment, but very complete (with a.o. microwave, rice cooker, hair dryer). Location is perfect; in the centre of Banff. Great bed. Laura is a perfect host. She serves homemade cookies and bread. Large fridge in the room. Guests are allowed to use the electric barbecue; sauces, herbs etc. are available free of charge.
3.8 on August 03, 2014
It was such a great place to stay. I stayed there for two nights and I am very satisfied. The service was good and the staff were so very friendly. I highly recommend this place.
4.8 on August 02, 2014
These cabins are well equipped with all the necessary items you need during a stay, and waking up to fresh buns and bread in the morning, complete with home made jam was always a treat. Set just a 30 second walk from the heart of Banff these cabins allow you to feel somewhat secluded and removed from the hustle and bustle of tourists. I would definitely stay here again!
4.8 on July 26, 2014
We, a family of 4, stayed in the Elk cabin for 4 nights in July. The cabin was clean and well equipped - it even had a kettle which was fantastic for tea drinkers like us! There was a bbq outside we could use, and a number of tables set up in order for us to eat our meals outside if we chose to. Each day, fruit, warm rolls, bread and jam were provided in the morning and very refreshing iced drinks and cookies supplied in the afternoon - which were appreciated by us after a day of hiking! Laura even provided us with bear spray to carry with us on our hikes, which was a thoughtful gesture. From the cabins, it was a very short stroll into town and yet when back in the cabin you felt far enough away from it all. Highly recommend Banff Beaver Cabins for a comfortable, friendly, convenient stay when visiting Banff.
5 on July 22, 2014
I stayed at Banff Beaver Cabins two years ago and I knew right away that I would definitely stay there again the next time I was in Banff on vacation. I stayed in the Bear Cabin this time and it was the perfect "home away from home". Laura and Lloyd are wonderful hosts and the accommodations are excellent. I strongly recommend these facilities to anyone staying in Banff. I'm already planning to stay there yet again when I return next summer. :-)
3.8 on July 14, 2014
Very spacious for 3 adults and 2 kids! Altough we stayed in the basement suite, it was very bright! The basement would be a real bonus during hot summer weather and was a comfortable temperature during our stay.
4.6 on July 11, 2014
Myself and my husband stayed in the gopher basement suite for 3 nights towards the end of June 2014. It was the first stop on our road trip from calgary to vancouver and exceeded our expectations which were high to begin with given the other reviews. The cabins are lovely, give lots of privacy and have an excellent location. Laura and Lloyd were standout hosts, Laura baked fresh goodies everyday and was so helpful about suggesting things to do in the area. Being able to use the barbecue was a great extra bonus. Totally recommend a stay in these cabins.
4.2 on July 06, 2014
We stayed 5 nights and had a great visit, the cougar room was great since it had a separate sitting area and two nice sized bedrooms. Excellent Location, quiet but only one block from town, Parking was difficult to maneuver in and out, but they wanted to utilize all the available space to give everyone a place to park. Breakfast was disappointing since it was the same items every day, also one needed to make their own coffee, though it was provided, why not have coffee available outside with the bread and fruit. Evening snack was also the same every day, flavored water was very refreshing, some of the cookies appeared store bought. The owners were great, gave us good suggestions on where to hike and eat, let us borrow some bear spray. The room was cleaned everyday. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this location as a place to stay while in Banff.
4.6 on June 30, 2014
We had a wonderful stay with Laura and Lloyd. The cabin was immaculately clean, there was plenty of outside space for my energetic toddler to run around, and we loved the homemade breakfast and afternoon cookies. Thank you!!

We stayed in the 2-bedroom fox cabin for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was immaculate and comfortable for the three of us. The location is one block off the Main Street, close to everything in town, but very quiet. The owners were very pleasant, the breakfast rolls and afternoon cookies a nice addition. We would not hesitate to stay again and would also recommend to family and friends planning to travel to the area.
3.2 on June 12, 2014
We stayed in the Bear cabin which had plenty of room for two with a well-kitted kitchenette. Laura and Lloyd were very welcoming, helpful and supplied delicious home-made cookies and Granola. The cabins are two small blocks from the main street in Banff, lots of restaurants and a good laundrette in the basement of the shopping centre. This is a very quiet area and very pleasant place to stay. The pictures give a good representation of the cabins.
3.2 on October 13, 2013
So we did a quick weekend trip to Banff for the first time and this place was excellent for our budget and comfort. So it's not exactly breakfast at your door as it is served In a common area outside but it's one block away from town centre! One block! The price was pretty good considering the location and the fact that it included everything you need...bed, warm shower, washroom, kitchen and warmth! You spend 3/4 of your days outside exploring and having the convenience of parking your car right there and walking distance to almost all shops, is amazing... No driving at night if you had a few glasses of wine nor trouble getting around if you're new to towns recommend it for couples and couples with older children as some suites are basements :-)
4.8 on October 07, 2013
We and our teenage daughter had a terrific 5 night stay in the Elk Cabin .Fantastic location from the front gate 60metres walk and your on Banff Ave. Laura is so welcoming, helpful and makes you feel at home. We loved her Granola, warm rolls and fruit for breakfast and yummy cookies and iced tea in the afternoon. Comfortable beds, kitchen-even a kettle!, ducted heating and very clean. We would highly recommend Banff Beaver Cabins - a home away from home. With lovely added extras!!
5 on October 07, 2013
The cabins provide the feeling of what Banff is all about, that warm cozy cabin feeling within the mountains and they're located so close to Banff Ave., my family and I will not stay anywhere else. Not to mention, Laura and Lloyd make you feel right at home and Laura's a fantastic cook!
5 on September 27, 2013
We stayed 5 nights in the basement cabin (Gopher) at Banff Beaver Cabins. It has 2 rooms; a bedroom and a kitchen/eating area. The cabin was immaculately neat and a lot of thought was put into making the space very efficient to use with lots of storage space and cubby holes for storing items. Every morning, we enjoyed the delicious granola and home cooked bread/rolls and also enjoyed the ice tea and cookies in the afternoon. I was very impressed with the attention to detail at these cabins and highly recommend them. They are very conveniently located to the stores and restaurants in Banff yet still seem very private.
4.2 on September 23, 2013
Had a lovely 2 night stay at the Lynx cottage. It is small and compact but ideal for my husband and I. Had everything we needed to self cater - small kitchen area with lots of dishes, pots etc. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was compact but adequate. The home made bread and rolls, jams, butter and lots of fruit in the mornings was lovely. Laura is a delightful hostess.
4.6 on September 22, 2013
Lovely cabin accommodation, minutes walk to the Main Street of Banff. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The hospitality was very welcoming and friendly. The home made bread and bread rolls in the morning was very yummy and a great start to the morning. The afternoon chocolate cookies with the iced water and iced tea was a good afternoon snack. Highly recommend for anyone who is after a short stay or a lengthy one.

Recently stayed 2 nights in Fox Cabin at Banff Beaver cabins. Cabins small but exceptionally clean and well maintained. Big plus is the location. Across a carpark to the main Banff town centre so makes dining and shopping easy. Also close to bus route so could catch a bus to main tourist attractions. Owners provide some breakfast basics and the iced tea and home cooked biscuits for afternoon tea a nice touch. Highly recommend.

We stayed in the Fox cabin as a family of 6. Cabin was clean & well equipped with everything we needed. Homemade granola, bread and cookies were amazing! Nice location as we were able to walk around town and not have to drive. Would stay there again and will recommend to anyone going to Banff. :) Gina, Missouri USA

My wife and I stayed in the Elk Cabin for 5 nights in mid August. This was the perfect base for our Canadian Rockies adventure. It was great to be a block away from Banff Avenue and the many shops and restaurants. Great people watching also. We enjoyed a great breakfast every morning - homemade bread, rolls, fruit and more. Laura gives it that special touch. The room was quite comfortable with a nice TV, WiFi and sofa. The beds were very comfortable. It was great to have a kitchen for making a few meals for our road trips. We loved Banff National Park and you will too - stay with Laura and Lloyd at Banff Beaver Cabins and you won't regret it!

The home-baked buns and homemade jam are excellent. Cookies in the afternoon! Room was spotless. Location is a two minute walk to most restaurants yet quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful. Kitchen very well equipped.

The rooms are very clean.
4.8 on August 27, 2013
Couldn't ask for a better location when staying in Banff. Only a block off the main street but no problems with noise except for Saturday night which was understandable; summer with the windows open. Homemade bread and warm buns every morning, along with fruit, butter and jam and homemade granola and milk in our room. Our room was very small (Lynx), but we knew that going in. Very clean and provided everything we needed for a 4-day stay. Could walk to everything in town and our hostess was the best. Would absolutely stay again. If your looking for a formal B&B with breakfast served on fancy china each morning at the same time, this is not for you. If you need something very clean, comfortable and affordable with good food early each morning (so you can get out on the road when YOU want to and not wait for anyone else), this is the place.

Spent two weeks in August; Laura couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful ... from lending us stuff for our camping trip, advice on hiking, bear deterrents and the recipe for her granola. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip.

stayed here in july/august for 8 nights with my mother, husband and teenage son while in canada for a month. situation ideal as my mother cant walk far and it was literally 2mins to main town, owner was helpful and friendly, food supplied was great-rolls and jam at breakfast and cookies and drinks in afternoon. the space is quite small which I hadn't quite realised, but this was still much better value than more expensive, larger hotels we stayed in elsewhere and much better atmosphere.
4.2 on August 17, 2013
We had a pleasant stay for 2 nights. The cabin was very clean and Laura is very helpful. We had a Gopher cabin and our cabin was a little noisy!

From our home in Everett WA we traveled to Banff Alberta. We normally tent camp which we did for part of our trip. We thought it would be fun to stay in a hotel/cabin in Banff. A lot of places we checked out were pretty expensive and we did want to fix our meals. So by accident we came across the Beaver Street Cabins. We could tell they were very popular and well liked by the comments people had left. Upon looking at the availability of the cabins most were already booked but to our surprise the Gofer cabin had four nights in the middle of July that would work for us. The convenience of the location was great and we could cook our meals in the kitchen. It was a welcome place upon our arrival and it meant not sleeping in a tent for four nights. We were able to come and go and got suggestions as to what to see and do while we were in Banff. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabins and the hospitability of Laura and Lloyd. The place was clean and quiet and gave us a place to call home. We were able to mingle with other guests at the daily morning breakfast fixings and at the afternoon homemade cookies and iced tea. The only negative was that it was so close to the main street of Banff that we occasionally heard celebrations from there. Whenever we travel to Banff again we will not hesitate to stay at the Beaver Street Cabins.

Delicious cookies, cosy cabins, outstandeing hospitality, we would have liked to stay longer. And you don't need a car if you want to get around in Banff. Great tips for dining.
4.4 on August 11, 2013
In my next travel to Banff I will stay at Beaver Cabins again. Excelent location, and Laura is very kind and helpful. Our friends will be advised about this option of B&B in Alberta! Amazing!
4.6 on August 11, 2013
Laura our host could not have been more helpful with ideas of where to go and visit. The morning breakfast was lovely and my children really loved the freshly baked cookies and juice for afternoon tea. The cabins were delightful and very comfortable.

The keepers of this property work constantly to make your stay pleasant. They were very helpful with tips, planning and maps. The quaint little cottage was perfect for our anniversary plans. You are close enough to town to walk everywhere, a parking lot away from main street. I cooked outside twice on their BBQ grill, they even provide you a choice of spices to choose from. Fresh breads in the mornings with jam and cookies in the afternoon with fresh tea and water will spoil you. Who does this anywhere else? I recommend this property!

We loved our 7 nights at Banff Beaver Cabins. We stayed in the Cougar suite with our 1 year old son and it was perfect for all of us. Lots of space for him to play, inside and out. Easy to get into town for coffee/supplies. Super easy to hit the road and hike all day! Laura is a fantastic host! Hope we can get back soon!

We stayed in the Gopher Suite, which has two beds in the same room, kitchen with everything you need, and table with three chairs. There’s even a fan and a heater. We were welcomed by Laura and shown our cabin. Each cabin has milk and cream in the frig as well as homemade granola. The breakfast is served starting at 7:30am in the patio area. Laura had freshly made hot homemade bread, rolls, jams, and lots of different fruit. The hot rolls were to die for! Homemade chocolate chip cookies and drinks are served everyday around 4pm until they’re gone. Don’t worry – there’s plenty! We used one of the two available gas BBQs. BBQ utensils, marinades, catsup, mustard and relish were all supplied. There’s a gazebo and two regular size picnic tables. We had our own little patio table outside our cabin too. I was sitting at the table when a deer starting walking onto the property. Then another deer joined him. They went behind our cabin and around to the front yard. They started eating the plants and flowers¿ and when they had their fill, they laid down right by the gazebo. These were 10 and 11 point bucks! Laura and Lloyd are really friendly and helpful and made our trip special with all their little extras. We loved having our own little suite. We felt right at home.
4.2 on July 26, 2013
The Banff Beaver Cabins is located in the town of Banff, close to every thing in town and has a good access to all the attractions of the park. No breakfast is served, but the owner offers refreshments in the afternoon and buns with jam in the morning. The only drawback is the fact that the parking place is next to the cabins. If you want to sit in the offered chairs out of your cabin, you will have to settle for e view of the parking cars.
4.8 on July 25, 2013
Laura is an amazing host! The fresh bread and rolls every morning were excellent as well as the cookies and drinks in the afternoon. The locations is so handy to everything in Banff. We would highly recommend it!
4.4 on July 13, 2013
Best place we stayed in during our 2 weeks holiday from the U.K Spotlessly clean, lots of extras & excellent value.Really enjoyed the home made cookies! Laura & Lloyd are helpful & friendly, even providing a daily weather summary with breakfast & work hard to ensue a great stay for their guests

Perfectly located with an array of different rooms to accommodate different group sizes. Great fresh home baked breads and cookies. Excellent and very friendly service.

Great host. Cabin was clean, charming and well equipped. Perfect location. Would love to return.
4.4 on June 30, 2013
Had a great time here. The breakfast was good (though we quickly overdosed on the carbohydrates), there was a kind and informative welcome, and the location was ideal. We stayed in the Lynx (smallest cabin) which was perfect for us for 5 days. It was indeed snug but totally sufficient. Cooked almost all of our meals there.
4.8 on September 26, 2012
The Banff Beaver Cabins provided a lovely and relaxing spot to call "home" during our recent visit to Banff. The cabins are well appointed, immaculate, and very cute. The grounds are very nice and provide a peaceful place to rest while enjoying the flowers and green grass (and a large Buck snoozing on the back lawn). The morning buns and fruit were great and we loved the homebaked cookies in the afternoon. We were extremely pleased with everything.
4.8 on September 25, 2012
We had a fabulous stay at the Banff Beaver Cabins. They are vert bucem clean with modern amenities, had very comfortable beds and were quiet and in a great location. The price was very reasonible Laura provides coffee, creamer, sweetner and delicious homemade granola and milk on arrival to be enjoyed throughout the week. Also, she bakes breakfast buns each morning and serves them warm with homemade jam and fresh fruit. Each afternoon, homemade cookies and iced tea appeared for a nice afternoon snack. We quidkly felt as if we had known Laura for years, she is a great host and made us feel right at home and assisted with a couple of needs we had. I can highly recommend Banff Beaver Cabins, what a jewell!
4.4 on September 25, 2012
We had a very pleasant stay in Banff as the Beaver Cabins were way above expectations. Such a great hospitality with fresh baked cookies, home made juice and warm bread every day. The place looks really nice with good spaces for breakfast and BBQ outsite. I would defenitly recomend this place to others as they will visit Banff. A great experience!
4.6 on September 16, 2012
I have to say this was the most charming accomodations I have ever had. Compact but with everything you can need & more...we will be certainly be back!
5 on September 06, 2012
I was so happy with the Cougar suite. Laura is a very cheerful, kind person, the suite was way beyond what I had anticipated. We were comfortable and felt very welcome. The location couldn't of been better it was close to main street, we could walk from our suite. Hoping to stay there again soon. Diane Hodnett Sherwood Park Alberta

Great unexpected traditional B&B cabins in the heart of Banff just off the main Avenue.
4.4 on August 28, 2012
This is the second time we have stayed at the Banff Beaver Cabins and will likely stay with them again. The cabin we stayed in was very clean and well maintained. They are in a great location, just 1 block off the main street. The woners are always around and ready and willig to hel with anything that mgiht come up, and the fresh buns and fruit in the morning are fantastic.
3.8 on August 22, 2012
We had a wonderfull time. It was a nice and quiet spot on just a 3 minutes walk to downtown Banff. Perfect location.
4.8 on August 20, 2012
The Banff Beaver Cabins were amazing! They have been wonderfully maintained and beautifully decorated. Lloyd and Laura were very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect - one block from downtown. We had an awesome time while visiting Banff!
4.6 on August 18, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Banff Beaver Cabins. The downtown location could not be better!!! Though our cabin was small it had everything we needed and was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Laura was an excellent host, her buns and cookies were yummy, and she gave us very good advice on places to go and see. Someday we hope to return!!
5 on August 16, 2012
We had fresh buns and fruit in the morning. I figured it would be from the store, but the buns were homemade and the owners were so accommodating. We loved it.
4.4 on August 15, 2012
Our hosts were very friendly and most helpful without being intrusive. They respected our privacy; and yet, seemed to "appear" just when we needed them. Lynx cottage is a bit "cozy", but not a problem if you're in love.
4.4 on August 15, 2012
Laura is very nice and helpt us in every moment. The suite has 2 double rooms and one living room with tv, fridge, micro, table, sofas, etc... One room isn't very big and it's not possible to open 2 suitcase at the same time. The mattress is a little soft, in my opinion. The location is perfect because is very central and 3 minutes long from the restaurants and shops. It's possible to park inside. If we go back to Banff, we will stay here again!
4.6 on August 12, 2012
There are several cabins to choose from and we stayed in the Bear Cabin. It was one of the smaller cabins and it had a queen and twin bed in one room, full bath and nicely equiped kitchen with a fridge, hotplate and microwave. The owner Laura bakes fresh buns daily and they are available along with fruit, and jam in the courtyard. She also bakes fresh cookies in the afternoon. Milk and granola are also delivered to your refrigerator daily. This place was excellent and Laura was extremely friendly, inviting me into her home on property on several occasions. These are old cabins so the electrical outlets are a bit odd in there are none in the bathroom and few in the kitchen but you make due. The cabins are very reasonably priced and super clean - walking distance to all downtown Banff shopping. The price was super reasonable too!
4.2 on August 06, 2012
The beds were comfortable, the cabins very clean, the kitchen well stocked, and the managers did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable, including giving us sightseeing maps and tips, and loaning us a stick of butter so we didn't have to make a trip to the store. We were pleasantly surprised by cookies and juice set out every afternoon, and buns, jam and fresh fruit every morning. Also, we had wi-fi access, and found out that the cabins have a very interesting history. The location was great for walking around Banff. We would go back if in Banff!!

My brother and I stayed in the Fox Cabin for four nights recently and it was wonderful! Laura and Lloyd were so friendly and made us feel at home right away. The cabin was perfect for our visit. I have been to Banff several times now and this B & B is one of the nicest I've been to. I would most definitely recommend the Banff Beaver Cabins to anyone who is staying in Banff! :-)
4.8 on July 31, 2012
Great value as we could self cater. Good breakfast - homemade granola and bread buns. Excellent location. Helpful and friendly hosts.
4.4 on July 30, 2012
We completely enjoyed our stay at Banff Beaver Cabins. We recommend this property and would stay there again. They do not have dining facilities but they do offer wonderful home made rolls for breakfast and home made cookies for afternoon snacks.
4.6 on July 26, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay at the Banff Beaver Cabins. It was our first time in Banff and we appreciated Laura's introduction to the area along with a great map of the town with suggested sightseeing areas. The Cabins were only a block away from the main street and everything else was convenient as well. Our cabin was comfortable and had everything that we needed including comfortable beds and freshly air dried sheets! Homemade granola and warm bread and fruit in the morning were a plus. We would defnitely stay here again. Thank you!

I would recommend the Banff Beaver Cabins to anyone needing accomodations in Banff. Linda and Lloyd have a wonderful place. Linda is very accomodating and welcomed us with homemade cookies (she also makes them everyday) and freshly homemade buns, homemade jam and fruit for breakfast. The location is right in the heart of Banff Ave. We felt right at home, comfortable and welcomed. Thank you for a great memory!

Banff is the most fun mountain town I've traveled to. I'm from TX and been to many in NM and CO but this little town is the best. Lots of bars and restaurants for nightlife and the best hikes I've been on during the day. This little cabin was alot of fun and some of the best hospitality by the owner. It was so convenient being so close to downtown Banff. I'll be recommending to family and friends.

We spent the first three nights of our Honeymoon at the Banff Beaver Cabins. It is a great way to stay affordably in Banff. Cabins are meticulously kept and comfortable. There are grills and kitchenettes so you can save money on food. Also you get free homemade granola (and milk) for breakfast. Every morning there are homemade buns with butter and jam, and every afternoon there are fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! The location is walking distance from everything in the town of Banff. Laura and Lloyd are very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about where the best hikes and activities are in Banff. My wife forgot some of her clothes in the dresser in the room when we checked out and they held on to them until we were able to pick them up again. This is an excellent place to stay in beautiful Banff. Highly recommended!
5 on June 28, 2012
We stayed in the Cougar room at the end of June. I can't recommend the Beaver cabins enough! Great location, great price and rooms. The innkeepers are wonderful and provide granola and a light breakfast every morning. We'll be back!
3.6 on June 19, 2012
My husband and I stayed in the Gopher Cabin for a week and had a very enjoyable time. The owner Laura is lovely, and the homemade breakfast buns and granola, homemade cookies in the afternoon and constant supply of fresh milk, filter coffee and sugar were much appreciated. The cabin was cleaned daily and had the accessories required for a comfortable stay. (There was no oven but the 2 electric rings were fine for cooking). Laura seemed always to be on hand and was very helpful, with suggestions on places to go and things to do. We would certainly stay there again.
4.8 on June 17, 2012
Stayed for 2 nights in June 2012 - the location can't be beat - short walk to main street - the cabins are fantastic, they contain everything you could possibly want and Laura and Lloyd were so kind and accommodating to our ever changing plans. They could not of been nicer or more helpful. Highly recommended
4.2 on June 17, 2012
These cabins a re a great little place to stay! Easy on the budget, close to downtown and main street Banff. Stayed in the Lynx room, a little small but cozy and comfortable for 2 people. Great homemade bread rolls in the mornings and yummy cookies in the afternoons for a light snack! The yard is well kept, rooms are clean and the bed in the room i stayed was very comfortable! I will definately return and book my next stay at these cabins!
5 on October 03, 2011
Lloyd & Laura are fantastic, they were very warm and inviting, it was like being at home. They were always eager to help us out and recommened a few of their favorite local places for lunch. I came upon the Banff Beaver Cabins a two years ago and I won't stay anywhere else. I highly recommend them to anyone I know that's going to Banff. It was like home!
4.2 on September 24, 2011
Lynx cottage has real character, is well equipped and very comfortable. Great outside space. Central to Banff and and loads to see and do even without using a car.Hosts are brilliant, great welcome lots of advice on what to see and do but not intrusive at all. Freshly baked rolls for breakfast and cookies and juice when you get back after exploring. A highlight of our visit to Canada.
4.2 on September 19, 2011
We enjoyed Laura's friendly hospitality, cookies in the afternoon, hot rolls for breakfast, and helpful information about places to go. The cabin was well equipped and very comfortable.
3.6 on September 16, 2011
Laura is the perfect host! We arrived at Beaver Cabins to discover freshly baked chocolate cookies on the porch as well as the smell of her freshly made granola baking in the oven. We stayed in the Elk Cabin. It was very nice and met our needs, two bedrooms. It was pretty small, the bathroom being the smallest I have ever seen but we don't spend much time hanging out in our room so it worked out perfectly. It was nice to have the kitchen for the supplied coffee, granola and milk as well as wine glasses etc. It was also so nice and close to town (3 blocks). We walked everywhere and avoided the in-town traffic that was pretty bad (over Labor Day Weekend). I would highly recommend the Beaver Cabins for the proximity to town, cleanliness and most importantly the lovely host Laura.

Friendly staff. Lovely accomodation and very close to the main centre. Loved the fresh baked bread buns in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. Highly recommended and will certainly stay there again in the future.

Historic-type dwellings in Banff. Cabins in back garden! All amenities supplied within cabin. Comfortable bed, parking included and easy walking access to downtown. Friendly and informative hosts. Great place to stay - would stay again!
4.2 on August 22, 2011
We were greeted with a warm welcome which was nice after we had been travelling all day after getting the plane from L.A to Canada. The owner gave us her home made granola to take back to our cabin for breakfast and we were told that warm buns, fresh jam and fruit would be available also at breakfast time. Although we were up at 7 o clock for the few mornings we were there, breakfast was always out on the table! She then gave us some information about the local sites and even lent us some pepper spray incase we came into contact with a bear. The cabins themselves were really well kept. Unfortunately we couldn't book into a 5 bed cabin as there were none left, but we were given a comfortable camp bed as a replacement which fit snugly into the living room. The cabins were well equipped too. It was a very pleasant stay and we would certainly return. Thanks.
2.8 on August 22, 2011
The location was fantastic. The rolls and granola at breakfast were bland. Mr. and Mrs. Hollihan were nice enough.
4.4 on August 20, 2011
This unique collection of backyard cottages is perfectly located in the center of Banff on the street behind the information centre. The hosts, Laura & Lorne, are extremely hospitable and helpful. Laura's homemade cookies and iced tea at check-in time were very welcome and the homemade brown buns and fresh fruit for breakfast every morning were a highlight. The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable. We were also able to use two barbeques and several table & chair arrangements in the yard.
4.4 on August 20, 2011
a true hidden treasure on the most charming residential street in Banff yet only one block from main street.

I've had a strange experience at Beaver Cabins during my visit in Canada in August. I chose this accommodation because of its good reviews (breakfast, bed, location, etc...). But I've to say that my experience was different. I spent 3 nights at B.B.C. The first one my wife and I we couldn't sleep because we had a strange itch all over the body. In addition, in the morning, we found some some small red bubbles in some part of our body. I said what has happened to me to the owner and she immediately changed our sheets. But the night after we kept on having the same strange itch. The day after nobody asked us about how things had gone the second night, neither the following day. I didn't even see anyone when I left the cabin. What was the problem? I don't know exactly. Bed bags, spiders, other insects, who knows. In addition, during my stay in the Bear Cabin, nobody washed my bathroom! And as far as breakfast is concerned, we had only some rolls and a little bit of jam e fruits. Milk and granola were in the cabin. But for the price paid it's very little.
4.0 on August 03, 2011
At the moment we arrived, we felt just like home. The Innkeeper was really welcoming and always available for anything. Stayed at the Fox Den, which we loved immediately. Breakfast is included and consisted of granola cereal, fruits and buns with jam on the side available on a table outside for you to take. If we ever come back to Banff, we will definitely choose those cabins again! :)
4.2 on July 25, 2011
If you're looking for a great place to stay in Banff, this is it. A comfy, clean cabin with cooking allowed and goodies provided for breakfast, with cookies and lemonade in the afternoon. All this saves on eating out. One block from the most popular street in Banff. Leave your car at the Cabins and you can easily walk to anything in town. Yet, it is an easy jump-off to go to the national parks.
3.4 on July 04, 2011
Booked the cabin for four adults. We coped but perhaps should have booked a larger cabin if this was possible. Layout in our cabin of having to walk through one bedroom to get to another was a little problematic. Very central for Banff Town. Good value in the context of the generally expensive accommodation in this area. Breakfast provided was fine for giving us a start to the day. Laura is very friendly and helpful.
4.6 on June 24, 2011
My wife and I stayed here while she attended a work conference nearby. We stayed in the Lynx Room, which is quite small. However, the small room and small bath was more than adequate as we spent minimal time in the room. We spent much of our time out and about hiking and touring. The location of these cabins is fabulous! You are only one block from the main drag, but you feel very secluded when you retreat for the night. Tehy have on site parking and the owners are great! I am always skeptical of "user" reviews but allow me to personally assure you Banff Beaver Cabins are legit. I hope you choose to stay here on your trip to the Canadian Rockies, you will not be disappointed. As the title of the review suggests, my wife and I will definitely be returning in the future.

We had a terrific stay at the Banff Beaver Cabins. We didn't get to meet Lloyd, but Laura was friendly, attentive, and serviceable without ever being over-bearing. We stayed in the Gopher cabin, which for being a basement bachelor suite, well exceeded our expectations. It had nice bright lighting, a new little flat screen TV, and a well equipped kitchenette complete with hotplate, crock pot, toaster, and dishware/utensils. The bathroom was a bit small, but the shower had superb water pressure and hot water. Laura did a great job with the little touches, such as keeping us well stocked with homemade granola and milk, supplying fresh hot buns in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. Finally, you just can't beat the location of these cabins. They're one block off Banff Ave but feel totally secluded and private. On-site parking as well. We would happily stay here again and heartily recommend it to anyone.
4.2 on May 26, 2011
Was unaware this property existed until I found it on a B&B site. Room was clean, very close to all ammenities within Banff townsite, was well set up to accomodate a family, and priced well for location and time of year. Owners of the property were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there again.
