If your looking for a great vacation or a rewarding getaway….. Why not treat yourself to a cozy cabin nestled within a peaceful, majestic Mountain setting?

Johnston Canyon Resort takes you away from noisy city sounds and the rush hour traffic.

Johnston Canyon Resort is situated just off the scenic Bow Valley Parkway at the base of one of the top attractions in Banff National Park. It is only a short 25-minute scenic drive from the towns of Banff or Lake Louise, Alberta. When you walk outside your private cabin you will feel invigorated by the fresh air and soothing sounds of nature. Everywhere you look from your drive along the Parkway until your destination at Johnston Canyon Resort you will be in awe with the scenery and opportunities to see wildlife and possibly even a bear!

Your quaint Banff cabin is just walking distance to the beginning of a spectacular trail with viewpoint catwalks that take you to 7 unique waterfalls, some that are 100 feet high. You will likely take the majority of your most scenic photos at our location. Pilot Mountain, a historic landmark for pioneering explorers in the late 1800’s, is highly visible making it a great photo opportunity from the trail and the Resort.

You don’t have to leave your Banff cabin if you don’t want to,as we provide all meals and snacks with your choice of our nostalgic coffee shop or our dining room. But when you want to venture out and see Banff and Lake Louise, it’s just a short drive either way. Click on our Rocky Mountain Resources page for ideas on what to see and do.

Johnston Canyon Resort offers a spectacular vantage point to conveniently explore both Banff and Lake Louise, Our guests have returned year after year as the “not-to-be-missed” place to stay! Thank you for visiting us and have a most memorable vacation.

  • We were delighted with the cabin for comfort and its furnishings. We met the cleaning staff and they were extremely courteous and friendly. We found the place rather large so we would have liked to have had a map.

  • Our Cabin was adorable and perfect and we hope they never change it. The walk next to the resort was fabulous. The walk can get pretty busy during the day because it is such a lovely walk.

    -Larry C., Airdrie, Canada
