We stayed in a really cute river­front cabin that we loved. Clean. Com­fortable. Perfect. Lots of wildlife, lots of stars, lots of memories. Close enough to the town but still far enough away to be a little rustic and romantic. Kitchen had everything you need, bathroom floor was heated, décor was adorable. We can’t wait to go back.


Kellie B, Calgary -

We stayed here with our 3 young
children (4, 2, 8mo). We had a 2 room cabin and it was nice and clean. It had a
fire­place, sep­arate bedroom, mini fridge, table and chairs, and the bathroom had
heated floors! The beds were firm but com­fortable, warm bedding. It’s pretty
basic and doesn’t have tv, phone, or wifi (it is available at the motel
building) but we managed fine without and it was a nice time slowing down and
enjoying nature and our family. There was a picnic table and bbq outside. It was
quiet and relaxing. On our last morning we had a bunch of elk right outside our
cabin! It was a reas­onable price for Jasper too. They also provided a playpen
for our baby (no bedding though). We would def­in­itely stay


NGolamco, Grande Prairie -

Loc­ation is per­fectly situated outside of Jasper town on a beau­tiful and
peaceful river that was running quite fast when we stayed. Wildlife here is
amazing. Elk wan­dering around outside the grounds. I sat and watched a huge bull
elk try to mate with some of his female harem. They weren’t inter­ested at the
time and he was letting out some massive bugle sounds. I also sat and watched a
chipmunk in the tree opposite our Bun­galow, shake the tree, scurry down and open
the cones to get the nuts and then stash the nuts just next to the tree. He did
this all day I assume? While in Jasper we also saw Moose,black bears and others.
The drive to Maligne lake was most fruitful. The bun­galows are awesome. Very
cosy and func­tional. Great showers, heated bathroom floors and a nice fake fire.
Highly recommend this place if u want a decent retreat in an area that is
peaceful and close to all that Jasper has to

What idyllic accom­mod­ation in Jasper! But
let’s be clear, Pine Bun­galows is weighted to back-to basics /​ creature com­forts
than five-star accom­mod­ation. But for us that was just perfect! Pine Bun­galows
is situated just on the north- east fringe of Jasper, flanked by the highway to
the west and the Ath­abasca river to the east. And yes, the accom­mod­ation is in
the majority bun­galows (ie, cabins), though indi­vidual rooms are available
around the new con­ference centre. The situ­ation is won­derful, set away from the
town. The bun­galows are respect­fully sep­arated from each other with indi­vidual
parking spaces, BBQ pitches and picnic bar-style benches and with trees
har­bouring bird life dotted throughout the site. It’s about 50 metres from the
peri­meter facing bun­galows to the river bank, with several benches adjacent to
the river in which to while away the time, take in the views of the moun­tains,
watch canoes and kayaks heading down­river and look for wildlife. We were so
lucky to watch a family of elk approach the far bank, then swim across the
river. Just magical! The river’s not suitable for human swimming though; far too
cold and fast-moving! We hired a two bedroom cabin for the three of us for five
nights. The cabin was spa­cious, with a large com­bined lounge /​ dining /​ kitchen
area. The kitchen had all we needed with a good cooker and fridge, and the
lounge was com­fortable. We didn’t need the heater on, but it was there if
needed. No tele­vision, not needed with so much nature outside! Wifi can be found
in the vicinity of the con­ference centre, but gen­erally only two bars strong.
The bed­rooms were com­fortable, though quite small with just some hanging space
to be honest, so packing needed to be organised. Bedding was all provided, and
it’s back to blankets, not duvets. In between the two bedroom was the toilet /​
com­bined bath shower with a basin and mirror outside the bathroom. No problems
with the pro­vision of hot water. House­keeping was provided daily. Cleaning, bins
emptied, towel and bedding changed on request. August was hot, but it was
perfect to strike out early on a hike, spend the afternoon by the river and have
a meal outside as darkness gently fell. We actually spent very little time in
the lounge as the weather was so good. We would love to stay here again, but
it’s a long way from the UK. The only thing to add was that it was rel­at­ively
dif­ficult to find on the internet, falling down the leagues com­pared to the main
street motels. Maybe its mar­keting needs a bit of work to raise its profile; we
found it a bit sad for cabins were located unoc­cupied in such a magical

Just loved this place. We had Cabin
Number 1 which was the last cabin on the edge of the woods and a few yards from
the river, just lovely. The cabins are described as rustic and i guess they are
BUT VERY WELL done. Recently rebuilt they don’t have TV’s or Wifi (i prefer that
on holiday espe­cially when i book a cabin) but ours had a heated tiled floor in
the bathroom and a great gas fire which replaced the old wood burner. We had
plenty of space, the bed was very com­fortable, the kitchen did everything we
needed and there was a dining table and pair of arm­chairs to watch for any
wildlife in the woods. Our neighbors saw a number of foxes, we saw Elk passing
the cabin and also a group of deer playing one morning which was lovely to
watch. Our cabin had a BBQ outside and we had our own parking space. the windows
could be opened on warm evenings as there is wire netting attached to the frame.
there is a small shops for essen­tials and advice. Wifi is available in the main
lodge building if needed. It was about 35 minutes to walk into Jasper or a 5
minute drive, there were often elk at the entrance to the cot­tages road. This
place has an envir­on­mental attitude which was another reason i chose it. staff
were great, it’s an old family run business and so has a little history. they
have a selection of talks from rangers to astronomy at various times of the

Unfor­tu­nately we had to curtail our
visit oth­erwise we would have spent the whole holiday there. The bun­galow was
com­fortable, spa­cious and in a very tranquil loc­ation with elk walking ten yards
form our ver­andah. Above all it is not over priced. We will def­in­itely go

I’ve stayed at Pine Bun­galows a coulple times and it does not dis­ap­point. It’s truly one of the most beau­tiful places in Alberta. You can tell that Mike (the owner) has put his heart and soul into making this place what it is. A few years ago, I went on a last minute trip to Jasper in the summer… and of course there was no vacancy. With no other options, Mike kindly let myself and 2 others stay at his guest rooms in town, so amazing!
I’m so thankful for Mike, his staff.. and this beau­tiful property. Hope to be back soon.

Stayed: August 2018, trav­elled with friends

Cute cabin on the river was relaxing and quiet. Bed very comfy, heated tile floor in bathroom, gas fire­place, func­tional kit­chenette. It was con­venient to bike to town, and yet away from the busyness. We watched an elk swim across the river. I totally recommend it!!


This cozy tucked away paradise is what going to the moun­tains is all about! No tv, no wifi, just unplugged and listen to the river, the peace and quiet. When you are ready for some action, take a 25min walk into town (or drive in). Going to the moun­tains away from the urban set­tings is sup­posed to be a time to chill and relax. The staff is beyond helpful and respectful of your chill time. We had family from all over Canada meet us there for a weekend of recon­necting and vis­iting. Ages from 5–70 years old and everyone enjoyed the loc­ation, peace­fulness. Thank you pine bun­galows for the won­derful getaway.

Our third time here in the last year. Our cabin was a beau­tiful rebuilt River­front cabin. Gas fire­place. Well equipped kit­chenette (small fridge, stove/​oven, etc.). Heated bathroom floor. Very clean. Loved our stay. Sad to have to go back home!
