Spotlight on: Blackstone Mountain Lodge
Enjoy rustic style with a modern flair at your home away from home in the Alberta Rockies: Blackstone Mountain Lodge.
You take a seat on your spacious balcony, slowly swirling a glass of local wine in your hand as you watch the sun dip below the surrounding mountains, the sky slowly turning from powder blue to a deep lavender. The crisp alpine air is lightly scented with the smell of wood smoke as you watch the last rays of the sun sink behind the craggy mountaintops.
This is the Blackstone Mountain Lodge Resort in Canmore – your haven of sophistication amidst the untamed wilderness of the Alberta Rockies. Walk into the grand carriage house entrance of this stunning resort, and you’ll instantly be immersed in the rustic-yet-elegant style that captures the raw beauty of the wilderness.
Tastefully decorated with elements of stone, soft lighting, wood accents and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Blackstone Mountain Lodge immerses you in luxury immediately. Every detail of this resort has been crafted to enhance your enjoyment of your mountain holiday, from the communal barbecue area and pool where you can chat with new friends, to the cosy slate fireplaces to snuggle up in front of after a day on the slopes.
The accommodation at Blackstone caters to even the highest of standards. Care has been taken to ensure that the sumptuous suites have everything you might need on your vacation, from the brand new stainless steel kitchen appliances and the indulgent soaker tub to the spacious living area and balcony.
The resort is within walking distance from the charming town of Canmore, which features eclectic, locally owned shops, restaurants, yoga studios and bars. Blackstone is also the perfect jumping off point for any type of adrenaline rush you can imagine, from skiing and mountain biking to white water rafting and more.
A STYLISH RETREAT TO CALL HOME
Relax in an elegantly designed suite that surrounds you with comfort, convenience and style.
After wandering down countless hiking trails, swimming in glacier lakes and standing atop mountain peaks, it’s a treat to curl up on the plush sofa in front of a beautiful slate fireplace in your own luxury suite. Designed with contemporary furnishings, these accommodations soothe with a relaxing blend of sleek modern lines, warm tones and inviting textures.
Each suite at Blackstone boasts a full gourmet kitchen which features sleek granite countertops, tile flooring and new stainless steel appliances. Self-catering gives you more options – each evening you can decide to dine out or enjoy cooking a romantic meal in private. Having your own kitchen also provides the convenience of a quick breakfast on those cosy mornings when you aren’t ready to get dressed and head out for the day just yet.
Looking for luxury for a larger group? With a solid wood dining table that seats eight guests, and an extra fridge for wine, the Penthouse Suite is the perfect venue for entertaining.
If you want to take a break from the outdoor action of Canmore, pamper yourself in your luxurious full bathroom with rain shower head and deep soaker tub or watch your favourite programs on the flat-screen TV. Each suite also includes fluffy robes to wear on your way to the pool.
The resort offers one, two and three bedroom suites that are equipped with laundry machines. Also, the high speed wireless Internet access means you can stay connected at all times – unless, of course, you just want to switch your devices off and enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains.
SWIM, SOAK, LAUGH AND UNWIND
If the Rockies are your adventure playground, this is your relaxing retreat.
Treat yourself to a blissful massage or facial at the hands of the skilled professionals at Verde Day Spa, with treatments made from fine natural and organic ingredients.

The hotel has many gathering places throughout, where groups, families, couples and solo travellers can converse and make new friends. This includes the communal kitchen, wooden deck and outdoor dining area with natural gas barbecues.
The heated swimming pool feels almost like part of the mountain landscape, as it is surrounded by elegant yet simple natural rock. There is also a beautiful outdoor gathering area that overlooks the courtyard and pool – perfect for enjoying the long summer evenings.
Splash around in the refreshing pool or soak your trail-weary legs in the two steaming hot tubs within the natural rock patio – all while enjoying the postcard-perfect views of the mountains and the ever-changing sky.
