A Day in the Life in Stanley Thompson Cabin
By the time I’d boiled the kettle and thrown on my winter warmers, there were 8 deer chilling out in the garden outside our cabin. Aside from the stunning design and decor, one of the best things about this cabin is the location. Tucked away at the edge of the Jasper Park Lodge property, the cabin is surrounded by lush greenery and overlooks the golf course, which in the winter is closed off to the public, becoming a wildlife corridor for elk, deer, moose, bears and more. With the floor-to-ceiling windows, you don’t even need to brave the cold on the patio – you can cozy up in the living room by the wood burning fireplace and watch the wildlife go by right from your sofa. It’s pretty special!
After getting acquainted with the local wildlife (and admiring from a safe distance, of course), we took our not-so-wild pup Fino for a walk around the surrounding lakes. The Furrmont is very dog-friendly and pups are spoiled with a plush dog bed, treats and dog bowls for their stay. I love that Jasper Park Lodge is integrated into nature, and there are lots of trails to explore either on foot, on bike, snowshoe or cross-country ski depending on the season (rentals are available at the Winter Activity Centre). Jasper Park Lodge is the only hotel I’ve seen to offer a dedicated pet menu as well and they really give a warm welcome to furry friends.
