Brewster's Mountain Lodge

Brewster's Mountain Lodge

Brewster’s Mountain Lodge is named after the Brewster family, who have lived in the town for six generations and were some of the first to set up businesses here. Its humble Western style reflects the days of early exploration, with historical photographs of early pioneers and Banff’s streets mounted on the walls. Log furnishings add to the property’s traditional mountain lodge feel.

The property offers 68 rooms and nine suites, some of which have access to a shared courtyard. Beds are draped in woollen blankets, and amenities include a TV, en suite bathroom, complimentary Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities. A continental breakfast is also included in your stay.

There’s a small library with books, games and a computer with printer. You can read more about Banff’s heritage and the Brewster family in the guest book located in your room.
