Last week I had a rare few days with no pre-planned commitment. It was the perfect time to spend some uninterrupted time with family.
So I called my mom, flew her to Alberta and switched off the phone for a relaxing getaway to the mountains.
And after a day filled with shopping, sightseeing and (let’s be honest) freezing, it was time to find the perfect place to eat and sleep… Warm fireplace a must!
So it was decided… And we were off to Buffalo Mountain Lodge!
A beautiful Canadian Rocky Moutain Resort property, Buffalo Mountain Lodge offers cozy, yet roomy suites with super soft beds, claw foot tubs, L’Occitane amentiy products and the 1 thing on our ‘must-have’ list:
A fireplace. Wood burning at that!
We started with a Charcuterie Board filled with impressive local, house-made offerings like Elk Salami, Air-Dried Buffalo, Smoked Duck Breast, Wild Boar Pate, Aged Sylvan Star Gouda, Mustard Melons, Olives & Pickles.
But like me, my mom loves to try everything, so from Artisan Salads with Grilled Pear…
Well, that was until we were presented the dessert menu. And who could say no to a Warm Pear, Almond and Frangipane Tart… With a scoop of Maple Carmel Ice Cream of course!
Having a few days to disconnect was great. But having the time to reconnect with family in a picture perfect setting over a unforgettable dinner was amazing!
Thanks for the memories Buffalo Mountain Lodge… We’ll be back!
