With a limited number of guests in the area, stunning mountain views that belong in photography books, and some of the best food and wine in the Canadian Rockies, it has been a natural draw for families, couples, and friends.


In recent years, however, the lodge has also seen increasing interest from small groups, whether that be family reunions, groups of friends or a small corporate retreat, who want to book the lodge for their exclusive use. The lodge is a perfect setting for such an event!

Here are just a few of the things why people look to Lake O’Hara Lodge for such an event:

The setting that Yoho National Park provides. As you know it’s Location, Location, Location that makes a huge impact. Surrounded by so much scenic wilderness beauty, it’s only natural for attendees at our Lodge to clear their minds and find a perspective that they couldn’t in a crowded city hotel.

The fact that there are fewer distractions. Often, the whole purpose of a retreat is to escape everyday distractions and patterns of thinking. That’s a lot easier when you remove actual distractions like traffic, fax machines, and noisy streets. When you hold a gathering with us, you don’t have to worry about your family or team being bothered by what’s going on around them.

The opportunities for personal interaction and relationship-building. Whether having a corporate retreat or hanging with family or friiends you can enjoy outdoor walks, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing and much more. If you are part of a corporate retreat that means that, in addition to you accomplishing your written agenda, you can create opportunities for different partners or team members to get to know one another and form more productive relationships.

The luxury mountain accommodations. Just because you’re on a holiday doesn’t mean you want to miss out on the comforts of home. Despite the fact that we are nestled in a mountain wilderness, the lodge features warm beds, hot showers, and premium dining and wine choices. That means all of your guests and attendees can feel comfortable and relaxed.

The potential for memorable meetings. If you want to draw more attendees to your corporate function in the future, get people talking about your event after the fact, or just keep your team looking forward to future stays and events, holding your event in the right setting can go a long way.

The convenience of being close to many urban areas. When it comes to managing the logistics of event planning, one of the things you’ll love about Lake O’Hara Lodge is that it’s easy to reach during any season. If you’re looking for a premium destination that’s within driving distance of Calgary and Edmonton, we have just what you need.

Lake O’Hara Lodge is becoming a more and more popular venue for business meetings and retreats, especially during the beautiful winter season when quiet and solitude are all around. Could we be the perfect spot for your next gathering?
