The Chateau Lake Louise
A French Castle nestled in the Canadian Rockies!!!!



Chateau Lake Louise


The definition of a "chateau" is a French feudal castle. The  Chateau Lake Louise is a gorgeous piece of architecture. It started as a small chalet in 1890 and has grown into this stunning "chateau". While only 50 guests registered at the chalet in 1890, by 1912, 50,000 guests had already slept here. Pretty amazing....

Lake Louise got it's name.... in honor of Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, Princess Louise Caroline Alberta. Royalty named after this "Royal" chateau.

The Chateau Lake Louise has been called ''Hollywood North.'' Early movies shot in Lake Louise include 1928 ''Eternal Love'' starring John Barrymore. 1942 ''Springtime in the Rockies'' with Betty Grable and Carmen Miranda and 1944 ''Son of Lassie.''

Literally hundreds of stars have come here for filming or vacationing. They include Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Alfred Hitchcock, Marilyn Monroe, Christopher Reeve, Angie Dickinson and many of the latest celebs - whose privacy they like to protect.

Chateau Lake Louise

As early as 1912, the British Prince of Wales (the abdicated King Edward VIII) included a hike to the Lake Agnes Teahouse as a part of his ''morning exercise''. The Chateau Lake Louise has also welcomed dozens of royals including Prince Rainier of Monaco, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, King Hussein and Queen Noor of Jordan.  You never know who you might see on a stroll around the lake...

Winter presents a dramatic wonderland of unique recreation including world-class downhill skiing, heli-skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, cross country skiing, ice skating and horse drawn sleigh rides. What a great Canadian holiday....

Today, this hotel is one of the highlights of the international ski circuit, hosting the Lake Louise World Cup racers each November, and welcoming eager skiers, snowboarders and winter sport enthusiasts from as close as Calgary and the United States and as far away as Great Britain, Australia and Japan.

In summer, the wilderness outside your front door offers an array of activities . You can enjoy hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, fishing, mountain biking and rafting. 

The Chateau Lake Louise also offers a wide range of things to do for the kids. I think they're great!!! How about a Saturday night slumber party? (Mom & Dad can enjoy a romantic dinner in the Willisser Stube Restaurant!!! My favorite place to eat!) Your kids can enjoy hikes, photo expeditions, Arts in the Mountains....the list goes on...

Walliser Stube - My Favorite!!!

Unwind and enjoy this serene setting. Select from a wide range of classic cheese and meat Swiss Fondues and more. Be sure to enjoy a glass of wine from our floor to ceiling Wine Library. Make this part of your romantic weekend getaway.

I did have fondue at Walliser Stube one night - it was outstanding. Would recommend the cheese fondue with truffles. The bison tastes just like beef tenderloin and definitely try the Toblerone fondue vs. milk/dark chocolate. I loved the banana bread that came with the choc fondue.
