For those seeking a remote getaway from the norm, Sundance Lodge is the perfect retreat. Powered by solar power and kept warm by wood heat, this cozy log cabin lodge adds a touch of home to the backcountry. The lodge has 10 guest rooms, a large country kitchen, and a cozy living room area where you can curl up by the wood burning fireplace. And after a day spent horseback riding or skiing in the fresh mountain air, you’ll appreciate the hot showers. Built in 1991, the lodge sits near the original Ten-Mile Cabin constructed in 1923, that was used as a rest shelter for trail riders heading to Mount Assiniboine. Set against the looming Sundance Mountain Range and surrounded by thick woods, Sundance Lodge feels remote and secluded despite being just 16 kilometres (10 miles) from town. Plus this place is known for its great food, the massive kitchen brings out the best in the cooks who fully cater with a rotating seasonal menu of hearty, home-cooked meals and fresh-from-the-oven baked goods. Open in the summer for multi-day horseback vacations, in the winter the lodge is accessible by cross-country skiers, snowshoers and fat bikers for overnight or extended stays.
