“Renewing retreat in nature”
My wife and I spent a couple of nights here with 7 other friends from the US, all seniors, with whom we visit national parks each year. We stayed in 3 of the 2-bedroom bungalows, which easily accommodated our group. The bungalows are simple, clean, and in good working order. Pine Bungalows is situated in a stunning natural area, along the banks of the Athabasca River, about a 5 minute drive to the town of Jasper. When we arrived, elk were wandering around the grounds. This place has won national awards from the Canadian government and from Parks Canada for its ecological values and wildlife friendly policies. Staff and owners were friendly and helpful. One of the charms of the place is that there are no TV, phones, or internet in the units, encouraging those who stay here to enjoy the quiet and natural beauty of Jasper National Park. We left feeling thoroughly renewed.
