Travel Experiences | Warm and Cozy Winter Lodges
We like the winter season, many people do. Having a good time being outdoors during the day snowshoeing or skiing and then sipping a hot chocolate by the fire at night with friends or a good book sounds perfect to us.

If you are looking to slow down and have a nice winter getaway, then you could not do any better than a cozy mountain lodge. Look out your window to see snow falling on lush pine trees and a herd of majestic elk wandering the grounds. Appreciate the comforts of good food and cozy furnishings inside.
Canada is a great place to celebrate snow and winter. Here are two warm and cozy winter lodges where you can embrace log fires, comfortable chairs and beautiful scenery.
Emerald Lake Lodge, B.C.
If you are willing to trade in a bad cell phone reception for clean air, alluring unspoiled wilderness, meals to both nourish and comfort you, and have a relaxing soak in an outdoor hot tub then this is the place for you.
High in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is the Emerald Lake Lodge, a hand-hewn timber building built back in 1902. It sits on a 13-acre peninsula on beautiful jade coloured Emerald Lake surrounded by awe-inspiring mountain peaks of soft snow.
The lodge boasts an impressive oak bar salvaged from an 1890’s Yukon saloon, elegant dining room, reading rooms, games room, fitness room, sitting rooms and dry sauna. There are 24 two-storey cabins each with a balcony and large stone fireplace. Outdoor activities include skiing, ice skating, snowboarding, dog sledding, sleigh rides, Gondola and chair lift rides and wildlife viewing. Dine on free-range bison, hazelnut risotto, sophisticated desserts and the best of wines. To enjoy the gorgeous scenery outside, have a picnic dinner and marshmallow roast by the lakeside fire pits.
Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello, Quebec
Rustic elegance is the perfect description for the world’s largest log cabin. This award winning Adirondack-style lodge is an ideal place for leisure.
Sitting on the Ottawa River just 90 minutes from the country’s capital city of Ottawa, the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello was first built in 1930 as a private resort. The structure was built with 10,000 red cedar logs all cut and set by hand. The food is outstanding and the accommodations beautiful and comforting. You can relax by the stunning six-sided fireplace in the three-storey lobby or get busy dogsledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, curling or swimming in the crystal blue Olympic size indoor swimming pool.
