Looking for Jasper accommodations? My #1 is Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

My daughter Eve and I recently spent a magical girls (and dog) weekend at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. There’s a lot of places you can stay in Jasper National Park, but I’m sold on the Fairmont. I spent a summer living and working in Jasper, so I got to see a lot of different hotels. They’re fine, but Jasper Park lodge really stands out. If you’re looking for Jasper accommodations, this sweet property just minutes outside of town really is worth the spurge.

Jasper Accommodations

We were in Jasper – at the Fairmont, to take in the Dog Days of May event that celebrated everything pup related. Here are a few pictures if you’d like to see.

He was just washed!

Buddy had so much fun, he was pooped out every night.

Mother and daughter canoe ride

No life vests for pups, but you can bring your own.

First we bonded on a mother and daughter canoe trip. Our first and certainly not our last.

He trusts us!

For such a nervous dog, Buddy was totally chill on the ride.

Even in shoulder season, Jasper National Park is a dream.

I was in heaven with the scent of woodsmoke mixed with douglas fir wafting through the air.

Lake Beauvert bike ride

And there are bikes to rent!

Multi-use paths line Lake Beauvert, so Eve and I took full advantage.

Cabins at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

Always, you’ll see elk. Possibly deer, moose and sheep, too.

Look who wanted to graze outside our cabin? Buddy was fit to be tied!

Adirondack chairs lakeside

You’ll be in Instagram heaven.

My favourite part of the weekend was taking my book and glass of wine out to these colourful Adirondack chairs overlooking at Lake Beauvert to watch Eve and Buddy play. Bliss.

Have you ever been to Jasper? What’s your favourite way to relax there?
