If you're hunting for a profound, unique getaway, consider one of the Charming Inns of Alberta
. They're a select group of beautiful, secluded vacation accommodations designed to offer uninterrupted solitude, peace, and relaxation. At any of Alberta's Charming Inns, you'll get the chance to truly leave the hassle and stress of everyday life behind as you immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery and incredible hospitality.
The Prairie Creek Inn, Heartwood Inn & Spa, and Elkwater Lake Lodge & Resort are located on the Alberta prairies. Each one offers luxury amenities -- the Prairie Creek in offers fireplaces and double soaker tubs in their cottages and suites -- and gourmet restaurants. These inns offer spa options, like the indoor saltwater pool at the Elkwater Lake Lodge and the herbal baths and massages at the Heartwood Inn & Spa. A relaxing weekend getaway in the gorgeous Alberta wilderness could be just what you need to recharge your batteries.
The higher altitude Charming Inns, the Mount Engadine Lodge, Georgetown Inn, Baker Creek Chalets, Juniper Hotel & Bistro, Overlander Mountain Lodge, and Bear & Bison Country Inn, offer outstanding mountain views of the majestic Canadian Rockies. They're located close to either Jasper National Park or Banff National Park, and therefore make perfect home bases for avid hikers and wilderness enthusiasts. If you're dying to really experience the outdoors, the Juniper Hotel & Bistro is located in the Cascade Wildlife Corridor, allowing visitors to catch glimpses of deer, elk, deer, and pine martens. The Overlander Mountain lodge offers the best of both worlds: access to nearby Jasper National Park and the town of Jasper. In addition to providing lodge-sponsored activities, many of these lodges are open all-year round and offer their visitors access to cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
Lake side Charming Inns, the Num Ti-Jah Lodge, the Aurum Lodge, and Crandell Mountain Lodge, offer breathtaking views of the craggy mountains and pristine lakes. Every room in the Num Ti-Jah has a vista of lovely Bow Lake, as does the dining room in their gourmet restaurant. For a vacation that's truly eco-friendly, try the Aurum Lodge, where eco-tourism is their specialty.
No matter what kind of inn you're looking for, a Charming Inn will have the ideal situation for your escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
