Alpine Village Resort welcomes the addition of seven new custom designed log cabins for 2019! These have expanded the resort's village of log cabins to a total of 55, all offering the authentic experience and type of cabin accommodation guests expect to find in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
These new Whistler One Bedroom Cabins are constructed of fir logs and feature expansive living rooms with open, log beamed cathedral ceilings and wood burning, fieldstone fireplaces. Each has a full kitchen, dining area and a separate bedroom with a king bed. These cabins are perfect for two guests wishing to stay long enough to unpack and settle into their own "cabin in the woods." The Whistler One Bedroom Cabins are located in a natural, forested area of the property. Guests can stay in this new style of cabin at Alpine Village, or in any other deluxe log or charming heritage cabins which all provide the perfect blend of comfort and seclusion. The seasonal, picturesque resort is located across from the Athabasca River, just 2.5 km south of the town of Jasper near the many activities and attractions that Jasper National Park offers.
Chris and Rena Allin, who have owned and operated Alpine Village Resort since 1986, worked diligently the last six years seeking approval from Parks Canada for this last expansion to be permitted, then proceeded to design the cabins and start the construction in late 2016. Their vision and goal had always been to improve Alpine Village, striving to keep the traditional log cabin architecture and low-density layout that began in the 1940s and has provided an authentic, log cabin accommodation to guests from all over the world ever since. The land on which Alpine Village Resort is situated was acquired in 1945 with eight cabins opening in 1948. Seventy years later, and after numerous additions and renovations, the resort now consists of 55 cabins.
The Alliins are proud to support their local Jasper builders, construct with many natural sources from the area and be environmentally efficient. They contracted Mark of Mark Deagle Log Building Ltd, who was born and raised in Jasper, to build the seven log shells at his site in Hinton, AB. The fir logs were sourced from nearby Valemont, BC, hand peeled, erected in Hinton, then shipped to Alpine Village and set up on site. Other Jasper contractors finished the cabin roofs, interiors and decks while a local stonemason collected all the river stone from Jasper National Park and laboriously worked at the perfect placement of the stones in each wood burning, fireplace. Furnishings and cabinetry were sourced from local Western Canadian suppliers.
Building log cabins is no small task and the use of these local contractors and suppliers proves that "it takes a village" to build at Alpine Village Resort. The Allins look forward to welcoming the many returning and new guests to "the Village," and so far these new Whistler cabins have proven to be a very popular addition at Alpine Village.
