Welcome to Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts. We are a group of upscale lodges in the Canadian Rockies, a luxury resort on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, a state of the art commercial laundry and bakery facility, a specialty retail store and cutting edge restaurants in Calgary.

A commitment to excellence in service at every level is our trademark.

Our lodges offer beautiful and unique accommodations in breathtaking surroundings. We offer a retreat to nature, serenity and relaxation to help the weary traveller leave the pressures of a busy world behind. We are surrounded by the towering peaks of the Canadian Rockies and our guests and staff enjoy outdoor adventures like skiing, canoeing, whitewater rafting and mountaineering.

Culinary adventurers delight at our signature cuisine. As a result, we’ve been featured in Gourmet, Bon Appetit Canadian Living and at the James Beard Culinary Arts foundation. CRMR is committed to  an exceptional culinary experience. We own and operate a game farm – naturally raising elk, bison and caribou to ensure the best game meats available for our tables. Our award-winning wine programs have been featured in Wine Spectator and we are currently pleased to enjoy the magazine’s ‘Best of’ Award of Excellence standing at the lodges.
